Q: How to replace glow plugs -where are they? on 1999 Volkswagen Golf TDI

Edit
glow plug warning light on. I assume i need to replace these plugs and don't have a diagram of where they are. Do I need any special tools. I have located a glow plug kit on line with plugs and lubricant. Need some guidance.

take off the plastic shielding that says VW TDi on it. i think you have to take out the dipstick first. you need a 10mm deep socket to take out the glowplugs but there all connected to one wiring harness. not to hard to find once you take the cover off.
