Hi everyone, I may need glow plugs for my e99 and I was wondering in your experience what the best brand of glow plug to buy would be? Thanks!

Motorcraft and nothing but. Aftermarkets tend to swell and break off upon removal. Motorcraft Part # 12A342 (ZD-10) $10.33 each at Autonation Ford White Bear Lake

ya i just changed my dads they were zd-11. so where mine when i did them 2 years ago.

a 10mm deep socket is the easiest way to get them out.
1/4 inch drive would be the best because the socket sometimes gets hung up and you want the smallest socket you can fit in there.
