    It's ok to replace one injector. But if one has failed then the others could be considered to be nearing end of life as well..........

    But if you are able to replace injectors yourself.... And you are on a tight budget.

    It's a no brainier as far as I am concerned.

    I would recommend changing all 4. I will be soon. I won't do it myself. I know it will cost more. I'm looking to get genuine Bosch refurbished by them ones. Rather than get them refurbished by another company. Some on here have recommended Lynx, I think somewhere south west of London if memory serves me well.

    Spry plenty of wd40 type stuff around the injectors for a week at least before you try and remove them as they are very likely stuck! Mine could not be moved but after a week of wd40 they popes out with no issue :)

    Spacemonkey recommends cutting the seats and fitting new washers as well. There was a post in his thread on his vehicle a while back.

    Have some fun reading through here- the injector saga is there too...

    http://www.landyzone.co.uk/lz/f9/finally-got-another-freelander-237094.html

    You're really going to enjoy getting the old ones out and cleaning up the injector holes. You really MUST clean the seats- the tool is only £15 or so. If not, they will leak and blowby again and gum up straight away and run rough and the world will end and a kitten will probably die somewhere.

    removing the injectors for the first time can be tricky , when i replaced mine i had to sacrifice an injector to enable me to pull out the rest of them, there is a write up on here somewhere,

    basically, you remove the injector top nut and drill it out, and then fit a length of threaded bar in the top of the nut, refit and rig up a cradle(4x2 length of wood with a hole drilled in it works ok ) and pull it out using the threaded bar, if you refit the injectors using some anti seize they will pull out by hand next time,

    hi,i may be a bit late with this reply ,I used lynx diesels to refurb my original injectors excellent service and cheaper than what you paid on ebay,when having telephone conversation with alan darby who runs lynx diesels he asked for code number on the injector as there are different ones fitted to the td4, auto,manual,year, have you checked the code numbers on your originals to the new ones, you can give alan a call at lynx hes very helpful,hope it may help with your problem.
