2008 T2 - V6 3.0 TDI - Glow plug location (BKS Engine)

Hey all
I bought some new glow plugs for a DIY swop, I need to check if my engine contains the red collar glow plugs (these are the one i bought)

However, I cannot locate the glow plugs, can anyone help me locate?
I've searched for ages on line and all the engines look different!

There are three insulated wires on the outside of each of the lower intake manifold leading to some, by now, very brittle rubber covers that look like small spark plug covers.



These wires connect to the glow plugs

I haven't changed the glow plugs but the Repair Manual for the V6 TDI states;



– Before removal, always detach any ancillary components which

restrict access (e.g. upper and lower parts of intake
manifold).
