    The glow plug control unit and glow plugs are throwing up a fault on me 2008 Diesel E90. I rang an indy garage and they advised they don't need changed as they're never used, hence the fault code. They're only used in temperatures of -16C. Is this true? Can I get away with not changing them?

    Pretty sure my starter has bitten the dust finally. Battery voltage is fine and fully charged. Turning the key results in a loud clang from the left side of the engine and nothing else. So.... has anybody had the starter out? Any tips? It looks like a wretched job :(

    Hi everybody, my car had been going fine until one night I jumped into it and it came up - engine power reduced, managed to drive it home with no power at all.
