Do i need a special tool to get them out and do i have to take off all the plastic housing above themConfusedcratch: Cheers Guys!!

you need to remove the inlet manifold it black then you require a socket to remove wire from glow plug and the a socket to remove plugs

I undone 2 visible screws on the inlet thing, but could not get it to move. I was afraid i would break something!! Does it need to be a deep socket,as i only have what i would describe as a normal socket set.

yep would say deep but only small sockets should be a easy job have you checked glowplug relay located by passengers side headlight black box

To be honest given what appears to be very limited mechanical knowledge I'd stay well away from the engine !
