hey guys, I had injector 4 leaking for while now, after good clean of the shaft and seat and placing new copper washer, i set about cleaning the Injector and clamp to my surprise I didn't noticed it before the clamp feet is is broken, could possible help me source the part number or a link to the part please.

also the Injector no 3 as a different clamp compared to the rest the 3 injector but there's no leaks from comming from that Injector, do I need to change that?

Always best to replace as many of the but, bolts and fixing that are removed to do the job. Not always possible but you will now its all new and good when the job is finished.

hey guys, just wanted to ask, does the plastic guide collar that slide up the Injector have to be snug tight fit in its postion or slightly lose, because the ebuyer sent me one that slides all the way up passed the point where the original guide collar was. the old collar broke and I can't seem to find it to match with new one.

just took car out for drive and Injector 4 leaking desiel, I ve replaced the leak off pipes and bought a new clamp fork and bolt also replaced the copper washer too.

If you run the engine with the bonnet open it may be possible to see where the diesel is leaking from.
