    These plastic things that cover the terminals on the glowplugs....I lost one and my OCD is making me go nuts. What are they called, part number, anyone have an idea where to get them?

    LOL! I'm missing one too. It's an insulator for the glow plug nuts. I'd look for them on Partsouq.com.

    I always thought it was to keep you from shorting out on the nut/threaded stud.

    Thats what they are for. They are used on several hundred toyota and lexus diesel models in production from 1979 on.
    Some petrol models in the Lexus GS series use one to cover up a threaded piece on a heater fan wire. This is on a US model.
