Glow plug wiring harness

I am going to replace a couple of glow plugs on an '06 and seem to recall that Ford requires the harness to be changed out as well. I'm sure due to the current involved they want to make sure that the connector is perfect. Has anyone had problems after reconnecting the old harness.

I would strongly recommend getting a new harness because you will most likely break the old one when you remove it. Also, it has o-rings around each plug of the harness that have to be replaced anyway otherwise you will probably see a small amount of oil leaking around each plug in the harness after you reconnect it.

Thanks for the replies. Curious as to where the leaking oil comes from?

I would highly recommend replacing the glow plug harness. They easily break if they've been in there for a while.

The harness snaps into the side of the head above the exhaust. ...and theres oil in the head, if the harness is broken or not seated it will leak.

I think what he means is what I ran into. My truck came out of the North East and when I removed my glowplug harness, it broked off on two of the glowplugs. Not too big of issue since I was puling the valve cover to replace the gasket anyway, but to get the broken harness pieces off I had to pull the corresponding injectors.

well when every single exposed piece of the harness breaks off and you're left with a corroded brittle piece of plastic stuck in the rocker box you're not going to be having much fun.
