Theres a clip joint on the feed and return just infront of the fuel rail, sort of under the injector harness... quite easy to get at..

im thinking injectors now to as the run on and hunting idle is suggesting it...theve done enough miles and to be completely hounest she had a good bit of red through her when i was working security in the feilds...had to keep car running throu night to keep warm for months! saying that nearly all the xantias ive had since 2000 have been worked hard....i basically lived in my cars doing jobs like mobile phone masts electric pillons windfarms etc etc for weeks months and idled most of night of 12-14hr shifts...thats why i rate xantas really cause they havent really let me down untill this one...but saying that they are gettin older now...still u dont see many cars our millage and age...if only the french had idleised the germans aye!

well since then i have removed injectors and cleaned them,played and cleaned with as many conectors as possible,disconected main fuel filter housing by puttin in line filter straight to the pumo and return and fuel deffo to injectors ,in everything i have tried im in the mind of the cam sensor now...for 16 quid i think i might have it sorted monday...injectors were very dirty and needed a good clean...i used bleach to soak the the tips for few hours and wow alot of s**t came off!!! i soaked them in nail polish remover the rest of the night....they came up really clean and i was quite impressed...monday will be the day i hope!!
thanks again for ur guys help :)
