I understand just replacing old  with new, the labor is the killer, I did that 
very thing with the daily driver. While changing them out i also eleminated the buss bar so i could seperate each glow plug circut in future diagnostics. certainly i can apply 12 volts to those out of the engine
how is it that i test the individual glow plugs while in the car.
 I remember reading here that we measure resistance though i don't
see a consistant measure when i do this. maybe my gauge is not woriking
correctly or the connection is suspect.
