Two quick questions

05, 6.0, F250
1. How do you unplug the glow plug harness without breaking the connections?
2. How do the bottom half of the standpipes come out. Do you just grab them with pliers or something and just pull them up?

#1, good luck! Them things are a PITA, the best luck I've had is expose the wires and pull on them, if you try and grab the plugs they just shatter, I have yet to find a good way, actually last set I just yanked with the intention of replacing as they were already broke and they all popped out and didn't damage anything.

#2 if you mean the tube that goes through the head use spark plug pliers with rubber coating or regular pliers but grab well below o-ring as to not damage the end, good firm grip with a quick tug works, they seat tight! Just my methods!

a tool is made for the glowplug connectors, google that, and i believe i read another poster that took a piece of wire and worked it under the plug and twisted it till it tightend around the plug then used the wire to pull up on the plug, not pulling on the plug itself.

Thanks guy's. I'll give them a shot in the morning. I saw the wire trick after searching and reading about twenty threads LOL. My eyes are going cross eyed. Couldn't find anything on the standpipes. Sparkplug wire pullers sound good.
