    Buzzing is normal, don't worry. I got my dad one for Xmas, and I'm already sick of the noise!

    I used the proper 'James: sea clean' solution when I did my injectors. Not sure I'd want fairy inside them, so perhaps just warm water.
    I'd give them at least 3 cycles of 5 minutes, with clean water each time

    Old topic but i was wondering how to pull my injectors out? Take it that un plugging the battery and take the petrol feed pipe off is the basics but do the injectors just pull out? Or is there clips to be pressed in then pull? A linkey would be nice please as my laptop is out of reach and search is poo on tapa talk, thanks for any help.

    run the engine and pull the fuel pump fuse, think it's no27. that'll de-pressurise the system.

    Then just undo the 5mm allen bolts that hold the fuel rail down, remove the wiring loom, and pull it off!

    the injectors will come out in the rail, then there's 4 little clips to pull the injectors out of the rail

    By the way. I used washing up liquid on injectors when I leant someone the proper solution. They were fine.

    Ahh good to know, the instruction manual says to use 3 quaters water and 1 1/4 washing up liquid.
