Sized injector!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any tricks or recommend tools for pulling out a stuck injector on a 1.8 tdci, I need to replace the copper wash as I have alot of blow by but it has gone unnoticed for sometime as ther is alot of tar build up.

I have chipped away all the visible tar and had days on end of soaking in penetrating fluids and cola but sill no movement with lever or heel bars. I have even tried driving the car round with a loose injector clamp but still no movement? 

Any advice would help.

Pipe wrench on the injector. Try to turn it left to right while pulling it upwards and gently tapping on sides.
Be carefull with the plastic top. Don't damage it.

Slide hammer is probably going to be the only way if even the engine compression hasn't budged it!  Heating up the tar as much as possible may also help, but don't want to heat the injector body as that'll expand and make it even more difficult to remove.

Wurth do a good product for helping to remove injectors called injector-ex,  where you would get some at short notice i don't know. 

If any of the mentioned methods don't work your only option is to get someone who has hydraulic kit to pull it out.

Thanks for the replies, what slide hammer set up would you use as Ive only seen slide hammer that screw on to a vertical feed pipe type injector?

You would have to remove the coil on the injector so there is a high chance of contamination.

This requires slide hammer and a special adapter.

I would use it as a last resort. Try to wiggle it left and right first.
