I've seen the old boy at the shop deal with that a couple time terry. He strips what he needs to in order to get a set of needle nose vide grips on it then hooks a slide hammer to the vise grips. It's a slowwwwwwwwwwwww process. Couple gentle taps out with the slide hammer, tap it back down. Couple taps out, tap it back down....repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat. He worked on the last one for like three hours working it back and forth till it's almost free the spins the engine over and blasts it and any shrapnel out in one good blast of compression.
The end of the glow plug swells sometimes and they get stuck. It happens to every brand name.
