Install was straight forward, just swapped out old relay for new and good to go. Time will tell about quality looks and feels exactly like my oem one I swapped out about all I can say is old relay no longer worked, replacement now gets power to my glow plugs. Not much more to it.

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Diesel Glow Plug Relay:

Not happy at all. I'm on my third one in a year. Last one was swapped out 11/09/15 and I just replaced it today, 01/05/16. Not a good part. If it buzzes, it's not going to last long. Save yourself some wrench time and go to the dealer. FYI, it's an internal issue.

        I bought this for my 2002 7.3 Powerstroke diesel, and it won't even match the mounting bracket!! It looks just like the starting solenoid, but the glow plug relay is bigger. This part DOES NOT MATCH the original. I had to take it back, and get something different. Save yourself the trip.

                Works as it should. It's a replacement part so not much to say other than it works.

                    I installed it which seem to work but when it got cold didn't. I took to a mechanic after a couple of days of hard starting and shot starter. He tested it and found it worked part time, and replaced with a Motorcraft which works great. he says the BWD is like a starter relay and could of burned out my ECN.

                      Don't use the website to price check. The price will be higher in store (by like $40). To get the price listed here, you will have to purchase online and use the site to store option. Lesson learned.

                      My original GP relay finally gave up the ghost in late April of '12, after 10 years of service. I replaced it with this unit. It went in fine and solved my cold start issue, but made a high pitch whine. It died in early January of '13 after just over 8 months of service. The majority of that time being the warmest months of the year.

                      I went in and was told I could either buy another and they would refund my money when I brought in the old one, or I could pull the old and bring it in for an exchange. I went the latter route. I was also told that if the next one failed, they wouldn't replace it. "The odds of getting two bad ones is about one in a million," according to the person at the counter. Ummm...OK. Not from what I've seen, but let's hope I'm not THE one.

                      I was impressed that when I returned the next day they had a new one pulled from stock and waiting for me. Good job! It was gladly exchanged. I installed it with no problem, and it is working fine. The new one is almost silent, so hopefully doesn't fail as quickly as the last.

                      Based on the experience with the first, this is a one star unit at best. I'm only giving it two due to the fact that it was exchanged with minimal hassle.
