Hi Guys,

I have what i think is a major problem......well im worried about it anyway.

I have just recently removed my fuel injectors on the troopy and had them serviced.

On the 6th injector i noticed that the washer didnt come out with the injector and now its stuck.

Ive tried O ring picks, screwdrivers and ive even tried to split the washer but i cant get it out.....

Im struggling as to what i do next besides getting it towed to a professional or asking a mechanic to come around and try to remove it.

Has ANYONE had a similar problem and resolved it????

Please help...

Suppose a pair of internal circlip pliers wouldn't be long enough, and maybe too thick to do the job?

When you say it's stuck, have you moved it at all, or is it still in situ, but "glued" in with carbon etc? What about trimming down a small cold chisel to split it, and also loosen some of the carbon?

Wondered about an Easi-Out, but the washer would have to be off the seat in the head, for that to work.

or google "stuck injector washes"

Good luck,

Hi Bob,

I loosened all the carbon but could not move it at all. I even tried to split it but couldnt.
I spoke to my mechanic and he said to just leave it in there so thats what i did.
No problems at all.
It sounds fresh now and i think it runs alot smoother.

Thanks for you reply.

Haven't had the problem on a 1HZ but have on other diesels and I just put the reco or new injector back in and used the jammed washer, they tend to be pretty soft so seal ok second time around if done up to spec.
