Hi Robin,

It's been a while since I had an Eberspa"cher installed, but I think your job is easy. Just unscrew the big bottom pan. The glow plug is located near the 10cm diam bulge with a black rubber cap on it (that's the combustion blower). If it's hart to get out with the heater installed, you could get some more manuevering room by loosening the screws for the three rubber mounts and let the whole unit hang from the front and rear ducts.

Good luck and Happy New Year!

I've tried the archives, I know it must be there, but I can't get at it...

My Eberspacher diesel heater has been diagnosed with a faulty glow plug. I've ordered the plug from VW and can pick it up tomorrow. As I've never opened the heater up myself (yet), has anyone got any hints on how to do this? Can you leave the heater under the van and just take off the cover? Do you need to take it off completely?

Thanks for any help.
