Glow Plug Problem

Hi Guys,

I was changing my glow plugs last night and up until then I hadn't broken a plug - now I'm not sure.

As I tried to take one plug out it gave a good amount of resistance and then kind of clicked. I thought it broke but the head is still attached however, if I try and loosen it they plug just continues to click.

I took a video of it because it's a bit tough to explain. The horror stories of broken plugs that I had heard involve the head breaking clean off but I don't want to keep forcing it if I'm causing more damage.
It looks like (and actually feels like) it's the torque wrench giving out but the socket keeps moving.

If anyone has any advice I would be happy to hear it.

Thank you.

Re: Glow Plug Problem

What was the verdict, broken or not?
I need to change my number 1 glow plug and am curious.
Did you spray lubricant beforehand to loosen it up?

Any other issues?
