So is that cyclinder always an issue? The rest were cake.

I just took my time and was very easy with the ratchet. it came out and the new one seated fine. i threaded it in and out a few times as i went to make sure I didn't bugger up and threads.

A little anti sieze on the new one and snugged it on down. no problems

While everything was accesible I also checked the timing.... i dont have a timing kit but its very easy to eye up the flywheel notch... i used an 11/32 drill bit which is very close to 9MM for the pump.... everything was dead on so I dont think timing is the issue.

all fingers pointing to this injector......

I thought about advancing the timing a bit but figured one thing at a time is a better approach.

Glow Plug seizing in TDI head...

No cylinder in particular is an issue, just ones with excess carbon buildup that always seem to seize the glow plug in place. The source of the extra carbon could be excess fueling, but not always.

I've gotten to where, every time I change the oil, loosen each glow plug about to flats and retighten it just to be sure they don't seize. It really doesn't take any extra time because you have to wait for the oil to run down the pushrod holes so you don't overfill and spill. A few flats won't damage the 12V glow plug wire so leave them connected. Also am careful not to over tighten... tight is tight and tighter is not better.
