I believe this may have been done already as I know two of the securing screws are missing from the plastic trim under the wipers.
I've just looked at the original post I put up about this problem, can't believe it's just over a year.
As I said in my post, someone cut a hole out of the bulkhead on my 2.7 CRD to get at the injectors. They also botched the repair.
I ended up, having to take my Jeep to a fuel injection specialist who had to bore the cylinder head and insert sleaves into the head to take the injector bolts back to standard, they had to do this on all 5 injectors.
The reason it wouldn't start after my initial repair at the first garage is the throttle intensifier was shot.
Many thanks to Merlin Tech for his help at the time
Once the repair was complete the first 4 injectors stayed trouble free, but the back one under the bulkhead had to go back 4 times under warranty to be fixed, and they never did cure it. To be fair to them they were trying to make the best out of a bad job.
Anyway, the back injector went again, then the passenger side heater packed up, and then the drivers side packed up.
By this time the car had 140.000 miles on the clock, and I wasn't prepared to throw any more money at it, so 4 weeks ago I sold it, and sadly I don't have a Jeep anymore.
Which is a shame, despite all the hassle I really did like it.
