Been looking around and only find the 325 engine guides. Nothing on the 320.

I'll work it out as I go and take lots of pics to share.

Glow Plugs

Hello.
Has anyone got a guide to replacing the glow plugs in a 320 (2008) ?
Even a photo of the location or tips for replacing them would be great.
Many thanks.

Brilliant, thanks. I've got small puddles of diesel around each one. The garage I went to told me each one needed coding again. It didn't sound right to me.

Ok folks. Had the DPF taken out and drilled. Most of the inners are still there so it still does its job but it's able to breath a bit better and won't clog up as easy.

DPF Issues

Hi all,
I think I've got an exhaust blow near the DPF, would this cause the DPF light to come on ?
