Default Glow Plug Bad

Hey All,

Check engine light came on the other day. Plugged in the tuner and it said i have bad glow plug (number six). An independant diesel shop near me said they would fix it for $115 P&L, or because i still have a few months on the warranty left, i could take it to the dealer, but they want a $100 deductible so cost wise it's sort of a wash. How hard are these things to change? I'm not a mechanic, but i know how to change a light bulb. Any advice?
thanks, as always.

Frigger's Sig:Thanks,

Well if you take it in for warranty work you get a warranty for the work and part. just pay the $100.

Yeah.....didn't really think of that. There's just something fundamentally wrong with giving the dealer a hundred bucks.

So how hard is it to change a glow plug? What do they cost?

Is changing a glow plug like changing a spark plug? Might be a stupid question. But you think DIESEL and it just seems more complex.
