    Default Injector Fuel Snapped! - Urgent Help

    Hey all,
    somehow I managed to break the injector fuel feed while doing my glow plugs - see images :




    as you can see, its sheared straight off. What are my options for repair here? can I just get the plastic piping, it isn't strong at all, quiet suprised fuel goes through it!. .. as you can see from the damp aftermath!.


    Product codes/advice would be great. wasn't expecting to be without the car for monday! put a real spanner in the works!

    It's not the injector fuel feed, it's the return piping. Go into your nearest dealer and ask for a new part

    any idea how much this will cost? and can I just get the upper loom replaced or is it the whole feed?

    I dont fancy attempting to repair that, looks risky to me! I'd love to be able to just swap out the tubing though.

    My work ordered one in separately and it was only the t-peice on its own.

    all you have to do is remove pin, pull out the broken t piece from injector head and replace new one, as for the tubing I replaced all with new, but you could just get a cup of boiling water and put end of pipe in to soften then remove the broken piece
