ggrassmid Thanks for the help. I will be doing my 6 tomorrow morning. I have less than 200 miles on the one bad one, so gunk build up should be pretty minimal. I bought two cans of Seafoam to soak the holes with and will probably soak the tips of the injectors in it as well to clean up some gunk on those. I didn't get any aluminum rods yet, but need to stop at the hardware store to pick some up. I have all the parts: hold down bolts, cooper washers, and new return line o-rings to all go on.

Too bad hindsight is 20/20.

I'm with you Whitbread
And what shocks me is when I post pictures with explanation and still there are people managing to advise in the wrong way ... they probably work for chrysler or something!!

ggrassmid Fortunately I have pulled the foam and plastic cover off the engine after I bought it. I wont be needing that.

My rear passenger side has started to leak. Im going to replace all of them.

Tango. there is this link and it has a couple others attached to it. like said above be careful with the clips on the return line.

Yup, I did the driver side rear cylinder. Outside of breaking the return line clip due to either incorrect instructions all over the net or a change in the harness since mine is a very late 08, it was smooth sailing. I'm 20 mins east of Gaylord.

Craigyfm I also need the know how, have you gotten the small black clip off the injector

Fuel return hose removal

Do I need to disconnect the return fuel hose before removing fuel line from common rail -> injector, electrical connector and bolt. If so, how is that done.

yes, good point, probably best to stick with cleaning it out with the airgun.
