    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

    The annoying thing is I somehow lost an o-ring when removing the injectors :think: (**** know where it went) so I had to go to audi and buy 1 :sadlike:

    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?

    Yeah still leaking, still has the old o-rings on that injector, the o-ring I lost was from injector 3 :crying:

    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'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!
