    Hi guys, any help sorting out glow plug problem?
    I always have glow plugs fault on my E60, they diagnostic show 1,2,3,4,5,6 cylinder glow plug fault + glow unit error, I find on internet what common problem of glow plug relay is burned out contacts in side relay, yesterday i remove relay , open it, but all contacts are good, also I checked with tester, also checked glow plugs with tester via relay port - all good ,
    p.s. I not remove inlet manifold when remove relay
    this what showing every glow plug 1.3/1.4oms

    glow unit error , checked with BMWhat diagnostic software from android market

    and few more pictures








    what did you think? should glow plug relay fault? try to replace it? where I can find to buy one (BERU) in london and how much?
    thank you

    Check also the plug on the voltage supply wire (coming from alternator). Try to see the contact for burn marks and housing for melting.

    Thank you mate! Ist not a hard job as it looks from first time,
    yeap ist hard to get and see relay from top, but when you open it, then puting hand from bottom easy can remove/fix it
    Can spray wd40 on the connectors first -for more easy take of,
    also sometimes +connector (single from alernator) ist burned
    and hard to remove it, if this happen simple open it from
    alternator and remove with all wire, then you can remove it, if
    need replace with new one
