[Vwdiesel] antiseized glow plugs

It is my understanding that even non-conductive grease is 
not a problem on electrical connections. In fact some 
switch contacts are greased to prevent contact oxidation 
and provide mechanical lubrication.

I think the danger of over torquing things with greased 
tapered threads still exists when one uses a torque 
wrench. I got my first lesson on this when using Teflon 
tape on plumbing fittings.
