Beru, that's the "good" brand. Bigger beefier "nut" part, and Beru publishes a maximum loosening torque of 45 Nm IIRC. I could find no such torque published for Bosch. - Max Charleston SC On Tue, Aug 28, 2018 at 7:20 AM Meade Dillon wrote: > Bosch are not as good as the other

Bosch are not as good as the other brand that I can't remember the name right now. Bosch was not the factory installed glow plug in the OM606. - Max Charleston SC On Mon, Aug 27, 2018 at 10:07 PM Kaleb C. Striplin via Mercedes < mercedes@okiebenz.com> wrote: > In case anybody

What brand plugs are you installing? I went with Beru, they are the OEM and seem to last a long time. I think they also are pretty strong and less likely to break upon removal. Did you coat the new plugs with never-sieze? - Max Charleston SC On Sun, May 22, 2016 at 12:00 AM, Kaleb

Probably not skipped. Number 6 is a demon from hell, cursed by the all mighty. For some reason the OM606 engine will coke up the #6 and not let it go. Both times I had to deal with them in the E300D, the head came off so the GP could be removed. clay 2002 s430 - Victor, a Stately &

I was able to remove all 6 glow plugs from my 98 e300 without breaking any. 3 of they were stuck in there good but lots of tightening and loosening, and gentle wiggling back and forth along with pb blaster got them out. I can see where it would be easy to screw up that job and break one off.
