need new glow plug recommendations

Postby 240Volvo » Tue Sep 02, 2008 7:24 pm

I need to replace my glow plugs on my Volvo with the D24 (non-turbo) VW/Audi 6 cylinder engine. I put in the Elsbett plugs when I got the system, but they don't sell them alone. TIA

Please give me the length of your glow plugs .
I might be able to help.
I assume it is 23mm correct ?

Elsbett uses Italian made Glow plugs.

Elsbett just told me that their order number for your glow plugs is :

071402

Price : 25 Euros / piece Euro / Dollar conversion =app . 1.45

Transport Charge : 25 Euros

Your total would be : $ 253.75

I was told that the glow plugs are not Italian made and therefore correct my statement.

I am passing on INFO only.
Hope that helps.

Hi, Klaus

I just emailed you! This thread is "and general discussion..." and it gets more traffic than the single tank.

Thanks for the info, I will check on the length in case there might be another option that isn't quite so $$$.

Thanks!
