Glowplugs. How to change it??

Hello everyone,

I own a jeep commander 3.0 CRD and i noticed since a while that the engine has some difficulties to start on cold temperature.

I suppose is the fault of the glowplugs cause my jeep is about 85.000 km.

I found on ebay the NGK set to change all the 6 glowplugs for about 80 dollars....is it hard to do the job?

Is there any way to know using the scan tool if some of the glowplugs is broken before remove it???

thanks in advance for the help!!!
