Leak No More

24 April 2013 - 05:44 PM

well the dreaded injector leak is no more 

not too bad a job just very very mucky 


my advice .. in hind sight photograph everything  every nut bolt screw and wiring connector 


also plug the injector clamp bolt holes while cleaning when  the injectors are out ... bits of rubbish down there are a nightmare to get out 


all in all did it slowly over 3 days but the job itself is not that bad  :)  


Ive Lost A Sensor Wire !!! Help

24 April 2013 - 02:38 PM

putting the car back together after fixing the leaky injectors and I seem to have lost a sensor wire 


wondering if someone would be good enuff to trace it back for me so I can find it again 


I think I have the right one going to the bottom of the airbox ( grey plug) but there is a sensor on top of the airbox that seems to have a vacuum  pipe running over to the timing belts but for the life of me I cannot find the wiring plug for it 


however the grey plug wire is long enuff to reach the sensor .. so I am wondering if its the wiring at the bottom of the airbox i cannot find and if i have this one crossed over 


can anyone help pls   :(

The Dreaded Leaky Injectors 1.4 Tdi Advice Pls

18 April 2013 - 01:40 PM


new to the forums 

my mum has a 1.4tdi 2007 

and its got the dreaded leaky injector fault 

so I have it half way ( well more than that stripped down )


but the engine cover seems to be locked in firm .. all the bolts are out including the back ones 

and I am a bit brute force and am a little worried I am going to damage this 


now as I understand it it has the  inlet manifold o rings on it and I am assuming that this is whats locking it on 

anyone any advice on how to free these up a bit or is it just a case of persistent rocking to get them off or something 


has anyone got a trick to doing this
