Having had a read of what is one of my favourite forums I discovered that I could rent an injector removal tool which would/should pull them out.
|Hope it works!|
I was desperate for it to arrive so I could get the last 2 out - this was getting personal now. It's a well engineered tool with proper bearings at the top end to make sure that all forces go in to pulling out the injector - and it sure as hell worked - had the last 2 injectors out within an hour - should have hired the bloody thing a week and a half ago!
so the tool attaches solidly - theres some awfy wee bits in there which is fun when you have big stubby fingers like mine. After a wee bit of research and some help from one of the guys on the benzworld.com forum I managed to get the injectors all cleaned and reassembled.
I'd already bought some injector bore cleaning brushes from Mercedes but the remover also came with a handy dandy refacing tool so that everything is nice and perfect for putting them back in.
It's a bit of a slow methodical job made a bit worse by the fact that theres no way to see down the bores other than using a mirror and a bright light - I used my Magicshine bike light as it's really fucking bright and after a bit it all ended up nice and clean.
