- Disconnecting injector connector and fuel line is easy.
- It will be very hard to pull it out, because it was leaking, and it is like glued all arround.
- When you pull it out, you need to clean the hole very good, bottom where injector seats must be spotless.
- Put a new copper washer, and refit the same way.

I'd recomend you to let it to BOSCH specialist and save time and trouble.

all sorted now

was full of black crap but managed to pry out the injector gently then cleaned out the hole and cleaned with carb cleaner, job done

cheers
