Hi
2007
E320cdi
Just failed it's mot on emissions and have been told its one or more injectors. I've found a place nearby that can test and refurb them but he doesn't remove them. My question is
Is removing them something a novice could do ?
I'd like to keep the car but can't afford to throw too much money at it. I'd just like to give it a last chance.
Is there a how too or does anyone live near Ongar,Essex that would take them out or help me take them out
Thank you

Prior to going at it repair wise have you tried the run it up to temp and give it a good caning strategy?

If the injector comes out easy then DIYable. If awkward then not.
Read up on putting them back as that'e where it needs to be done with knowledge.

Thanks, I have seen the videos. I don't think I'm comfortable taking them out, the cost of testing and repairing and then having them replaced.
Therefore the car will sadly be up for sale. I need to change the plate over tomorrow. Happy to take offers for the car if you inbox me.
I have receipts for new turbo, oil cooler,egr pcv and many other parts. I will net break the car and only for sale as it is. Thank you
