04' steaming out of the exhaust, low coolant level

Need help with my 04' 6.0, Steam was coming out of the exhaust today, I shut down the motor and called a friend, He said not to crank again, just tap the key slightly to see if maybe water was in a cyl. or not.. it was...
did some reading and think that its an ERG Cooler poss.
Can some one give me input on pulling the glopw plugs out. is there a tool used to get the clips off of each plug as well?
Any help would be very appreciated.
Tommy

Ford has a tool to remove the plastic connectors on the glow plugs. I made one quite easily. You will need a 10mm deep socket to remove them. Here is a link to what the removal tool looks like.

Thank you for that information.. to DaveT553..No, I am in Tampa, Florida.
I was also hoping to find out if that is the only way of getting the water from the cylinder as well.
Thanks

Just did one and this was how we got it out. It's either removing glow plugs, and crank intermittenely, or remove injectors, which in turn means replacing the copper washers/o - rings.
