Glow plug controller helpful info...

I've seen many threads (on 6 cylinder engines especially) where people take their inlet manifolds off or water hoses off (and then have to bleed the system) in order to change the glow controller. Just to let you know (on the e90 330d at least) it can be done with only removing the engine accoustic cover and the one bolt for the dipstick holder.

Fiddly but as long as you're good at working with nuts in fingertips or on the end of a telescopic magnet it can be done. controller comes out from underneath (just) - Took me exactly an hour. The second time it will prob take half that.

Just thought this info could save people a lot of time and stress by avoiding taking their inlet manifold off.
