glow plugs

I had a new set of Bearmach glow plugs for my 200 tdi just in case I needed them. Well now I need them and they won't fit all the way in. Has anyone else encountered this before. I managed to lightly file one down to get it to fit but I will be getting a new set instead. What are your thoughts on Beru as opposed to genuine ?
Thanks,

Mike

Beru is the way to go. I stick some anti-seize compound before fitting.

The problems that I have had with factory plugs is getting them out, thus JFD's recommended anti-seize, (however that doesn't stop the tip from getting crudded in) and getting the washer out.

I changed mines couple months ago, during engine rebuild, and 2 of them were badly stucked, had to hammer them out with a skinny and long punch and a big hammer plus lots of penetrating stuff. Kind of frightening

Seems that you got the "T" shirt too. I had one stuck but the shaft came out and left the tip in the head. I feel your pain.

You have a brass crush washer at the end of the injector. I have had them stay in the head after removing an injector. It was a Pita to get out.
