Fuel rail and injector removal procedure??

I need to remove the injectors to sit them in jam jars and test for fuel spray.

This is on my 916 2.0 P2 GTV which had stood for 8 years.

Please could somebody advise on how to do this? I have sprayed around the injectors with WD40 and have removed the 2 screws securing the rail, but I can't pull the whole rail and injectors out. I am worried about using force like a bar to prise it out and end up breaking plastic......

Should I separate the rail from the injectors first? It would seem like this is unnecessary but I could be wrong.

The pipe to the rail fills a jam jar so fast that I can't believe there is a pressure problem to the rail.

I checked plug #1 for a spark and it sparked on cranking over.

Strangely with a plug removed the engine catches and turns over a couple of times then dies. It seems to catch easier than when all plugs are in.

Informed advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Once you've unbolted the fuel rail the injectors should just wiggle out.

Be patient and use more wiggle than pull,as the clips that hold the injector in the rail will snap -dont ask

Yep - grab the injectors themselves and wiggle them, they'll pop out one at a time. And then you shouldn't break the clips (-:

Thanks for the advice. I nearly broke one clip and nearly lost one washer but fortunately I managed to pull it out and it is all ok.

Make sure you change the injector seals if you disturb them chances are they're past their best and if disturb them you might start leaking fuel
