    Hi All

    I've read a few threads concerning the "black death" on certain engines, I've got a 2008 W211 E220, I've popped the engine cover and all looks ok to me but just wanted to confirm i'm looking at the right area, are the 2 pictures below the right area to look at?

    injectors are under that foam part in lower picture, follow metal fuel lines from rail tube... check that there is no black/moist in foot of the injector and no gas leak heard or felt.
