Has anyone used a GP removal kit?
Own 2006 2.7l D. went to replace GP and one was in bad shape part of electrode separated from body . Leaving threads in place .
Engine runs with no issues .
Worried if I leave alone over time GP body will root .
Really dont want to connect new GP and trick ECM by rigging up a ground and place to secure.
Anyway removing head seems like another can of worms with fuel injectors getting stuck!!

Ordered a (straight) removal tool from ebay and there are lots of other super helpful suggestions to be found here https://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=743
