    320d Glowplug Controller Help

    Alright chaps.

    My 2004 E46 320d M47TU doesn't start as well as it should from cold. On INPA I get an error code for all the glowplugs. I replaced the plugs with brand new BERU's recently, the faults occurred straight away.
    I've been told this could be a fault with the glowplug controller unit, located on the side of the engine next to the starter motor I believe. Does anyone know of anything else it could be and/or if its possible to test the glowplug controller?
    Also, any tips on changing it would be appreciated, apparently its a pig of a job :(

    Cheers

    Edit: Looking on RealOEM I assume its the "preheating control unit", part number: 12217801200 can anyone confirm this?

    Really Simon? I did have a look when we were talking about it, but didn't see that.

    Was it from the other site?
