Injector - Reconditioned or New?

Post by aneesh84 »

I need a new siemens injector for C5 2.0 HDI 138. One of the existing injectors has too much back flow that reduces fuel pressure while starting when engine is hot.

Any recommendations for a place where I can get reconditioned but tested injector? A new one costs 300 Euros, which seems steep for an old car.

If there's a Bosch Diesel Service Centre over there then that would be a good place to start. Not cheap, but good.

Second that - get the set serviced/recalibrated by a Bosch diesel service centre.
Last lot I had done (about 6 years ago) was just €70 for the four. Removing them yourself keeps the price down.

Are removing them from 2.0 16V 138 straightforward or has issues with stuck injectors?
