Snapped Injector Stud

Post by tomtom9119 »

Hi all, obviously joining this forum because I have a huge problem and would really appreciate any input.

I've basically changed all my injector seals, and when I've gone to finish up on Injector 3, I've snapped the injector stud (not realising that they are single use). If anyone could help with some advise on what to do, I would really appreciate it. I love this car and will do pretty much anything to keep it.

Hi, and :welc: to the forum.

I cannot offer you any useful advice, other than to be patient (as it likely that somebody with far more knowledge will read this thread soon and offer useful advice), and to also post the vehicle VIN here in this thread. That will allow Forum staff to look up your vehicle on the relevant database and get accurate information on her. Don't worry about security; the Forum software will automatically obscure the VIN so that only Forum staff can read it (like this, for example; VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff] ).

Also do you have a picture of the snapped stud?

Got it out today, felt like I'd delivered my first baby!

I've now cleaned the injector and fitted with new seals. It's now running really rough on idle, engine rocking all over the place. Any ideas?

Did you put each injector back in the same cylinder it came out of?
