Glow Plug error help ?

Hi All , last few mornings I'm getting message at startup " Glow plugs unavailable " or something to that effect. Car does start ok but
08 159 1.9 JTDM 16v
1> I assume that this means 1 or more of the glow plugs needs to be replaced ?
( how many glow plugs are there ? )

2> Easy job or needs to go to garage ?

3> Anyone who did it themselves would you have the steps \ procedure ?
E.G ..where are they located etc .. how to remove \ replace
Where to buy \ cost ?

Thank you very much for help !!!

There's a massive thread in the stickies about it (link below), but there are a few possible causes:

Fuse, control box, glow plugs, wiring. After replacing all mine I discovered it was the fuse! (159, "glow plug pre-heating not available")
