hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I've got a rolling road day tomorrow. Do I get up 1 hour early and quickly clean the injectors? or do I not bother?
When did you last clean them?
can somebody who is going to do this please take some pics so i can check what is involved? thanks!
I do mine under a hooded cloak i dont know about anybody else..sorry
I may do mine again tomoz with a detailed write up with pics since i started it.....
Just in the middle of cleaning my injectors, I thought I would give Audi a call for a price on a set of new rubber o-rings for the injectors, wait for it................ £36 + VAT for 8 rubber o-rings, lol
Boy am I glad you posted,I ordered mine from TPS and was quoted 20 and thought how much.
The annoying thing is I somehow lost an o-ring when removing the injectors (**** know where it went) so I had to go to audi and buy 1
Also the manifold/rubber injector seat around number 1 injector is wet with fuel, (was like this before I removed the injector) would this be caused by a bad o-ring? and if so I guess it would be the o-ring on the top of the injector sealing it into the fuel rail?
Still leaking now ?
Yeah still leaking, still has the old o-rings on that injector, the o-ring I lost was from injector 3
Will replacing with a new o-ring stop the leaking? or could it be the rubber seat on the manifold is worn?
S3 Nattie said "Its the injector seats that leak more than anything, not the seals."
If that is the case I would look at the seating and see if it needs abrading as it needs to be flush or perhaps some Hylomar put in to seal,well that is what I'll do if any leaks.
i replaced my seals that seat in the manifold as mine were weeping fuel, i did the o rings on the injectors too
Were did you buy the seals that seat in the manifold? and how much did they cost?
I've ordered the eight seals for 20 quid at TPS
I'm surprised at how many people are having issues with the o rings and seals! My car, s3 baby's car, and Finesse's car all had mint looking seals and o rings!
