    Help!!! 1.7 Diesel mk3

    Guys,
    Brand new to forum and in desparate need of some help. Juts got the above car, seems to be ok and runs alright. It starts easy when warm but when cold takes about 10 seconds to start even after the plug lught goes out, is it just the glow plugs need changing or is it serious? No idea when it was last serviced either so im not sure if new filters and oil would help? Also on the advisory note on current MOT (4000 miles ago) it says "Both rear spring upper seats corroded". Is this fixable and what does it mean exactly. Also got a grundig 303 radio in it, i have unscrewed the retaining screws but it wont move, do i need to do anything or is there a nack to removing them?!
    Any help would be really appreciated
    Luke
