    can someone post a pic-how-to of this? i really think my 10 yr old car can do with it's injectors cleaned but i am not great with my spanners and usually end up breaking something. i would really appreciate more details on how to remove the injectors and where to get the correct cleaning solution. thanks!

    If you know anyone who works in the dental industry they use them on a daily basis.

    Haha, no she'll want you to buy her more jewellery for you to clean. And then she'll tell all her friends and they'll want their jewellery cleaned too. Keep it hush hush if I was you mate ;)

    What allen bolts and what plastic casing do you mean? I'm assuming you mean the plastic bit in front of the dipstick? Have you got any pics?

    No, don't worry, I wasn't on about the ones down the bottom, just the two that are holding the fuel rail in place. I read the part about not opening the drivers door, but the fuses (for the fuel pump) are on that side aren't they. Do you think it's worth disconnecting the battery, or is it not a necessity?

    Just watch your eyes, there is very little.. pull the FPR with a cloth in your hand and that should be it

    I left the rail connected. I just liffed out the injectors and rail together and took the top off the FPR to release most of the pressure and tipped out the fuel from there. As soon as you remove the first injector from the rail fuel will run out so get a bit of cloth ready.

    Cheers for the help guys, I have left the rail connected as well. One last question, do the injectors just pull out?

    There are little metal clips that hold the injector to the fuel rail. Remove these first then the injector will need a bit of a tug to come out. Also make sure that none of the rubber seal is left inside the hole on the fuel rail when you pull out the injectors.

    I'm cleaning the injector tips on the TDI and Patrol next weekend.
    I can take pics of that if people want but they are diesels, so the injectors and fitting it different.

    Can someone tell me where the injectors are on the 2.0l A3 170?

    Are they easy to take out?

    Wrong section mate, sounds like youve got a 8p not a 8l.
