leaking diesel fuel injector solved

If you have an injector leaking from the return line, slide the clips up on the return line that holds them to the injector and you can remove line then. The clips are the plastic donut things that can spin around. It may take a lot of effort to slide the clips up. Look for an O-ring on the injector, they're very tiny and you almost can't see them. The Jeep parts diagram doesn't really show the rings on the injector, however the Sprinter parts diagram shows them. I got mine form europarts since I was also buying a fuel filter and didn't want to pay dealer prices. http://europarts-sd.com/item.asp?cID=114&PID=2197
Anyway I took the line off of my injector and there was no ring to be found... I'm not sure where it went. The other injectors had the ring. That would explain the leak I guess.
The part number is 68014080AA for the Mopar part, or A0000780580 for the Mercedes part.
