- Make sure to wear eye protection – even after you've released the pressure in the fuel injection system. There could be some fuel flying when you start disconnecting high pressure lines and removing injectors.
Once you've relieved the fuel system pressure, detach the ground battery cable. You're then ready to remove the fuel injector:
- Remove anything that might interfere with the fuel injector's removal such as the engine cover, accessory brackets or air cleaner assembly components.
- Unplug the wiring harness from the fuel injector you want to remove.
- Locate the mounting screws of the fuel rail and unfasten the bolts.
