    The kit will stop/reduce the heat getting to the connector and causing it to loose good contact.

    beats me, some think it is the way the heat flows over the engine and the 3rd injector loom/plug is in its path. Personally I don't know.

    The dealer done it for me for £45. I then got the other three done and it cost £75 for the three of them.

    That can be normal as long as it is not white smoke for a period of time.
