Mark :

Hello, my name is Mark and I will try help you with this.

Mark :

There is no 100% guaranteed way of removing a stuck glow plug. Much really depends on how lucky you are.

Mark :

You can try soaking it with penetrating fluid.

Mark :

You can try soaking it with something like oven cleaner to try dissolve any carbon that may be holding it in.

Mark :

Another method is to use a low frequency/torque impact tool to try vibrate any carbon loose from the gowplug.

Mark :

Worst case is to remove the head and send it to an engineering shop.

Mark :

These tools however aren't cheap.
