Difficult to access glow plugs? Try this new set of dedicated glow plug sockets.
You've got a faulty glow plug. Should be easy to replace, it just screws out doesn't it? But you'll be lucky to even see it, never mind actually get access to remove it. It can be a real problem, as the glow plugs are invariably hidden away in the hidden recesses of the cylinder head area, and surrounded by metalwork and other components. Laser Tools to the rescue with these compact, super-slim glow plug sockets (part number 6741) that are specially designed to let you gain access in the tightest areas.
Three sizes are included in the set, 8mm, 9mm and 10mm. All fitted with a universal joint, they are 1/4" drive to keep the size down and enable the use of slim, 1/4" drive extension bars. They are a deep socket design, to fit snugly over the glow plug, and the narrow diameter and universal joint really lets you get into these inaccessible areas of the engine bay.
When you're confronted by difficult to access glow plugs, these are the only glow plug sockets to reach for. Available now from your Laser Tools stockist.
