Common rail connector

Recommended Posts

Hi

I don't suppose anyone has a picture of where the common rail switch connector is located?

 

Thanks.

Which car/engine?

1.6 TDCi mk3?  The rail is behind the engine so not immediately easy to access.  If you're looking for the pressure sensor, I think it's nearside, will need to remove some stuff for access.

Literally just found it. Had to remove battery and housing. One problem I can't work out how to undo the connector

It's probably one of those where you have to slip a thin screwdriver down a small slit in the side, not 100% sure without a picture though.

Think so but can't get a proper look at it. That was the best pic I could get

Your pic didn't show up first time, sorry. 

Edit - On a second look, I think it is similar to that one, the tab needs pulling away from the plug slightly with a thin screwdriver.  Pushing the plug down first can make it a bit easier.  And go steady, those clips are a bugger for snapping!

Unfortunately that's just a reflection of the flash. Been trying for an hour to get this ***** thing off.

It's been fitted upside down so difficult to get the the bit to push down

One more question does the tab need pushing in or lifting up do you think

Thanks for your help
