    Hi,

    I was replacing the injector seals on my 2.7 Tdi A6, however while doing so on two of the injectors I accidently took off the L shaped fuel return nipple. Now I can clip them back on to the injector however when running the engine they leak fuel. Are the injectors ruined now or is there a special way to clip them back on??

    A new O ring should seal it, WHT 007 480 A but £9.50 each..... If the return line is damaged that is only available as a complete assembly 059 130 218 H at £294.23.... plus the O rings.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Hi Crasher,

    Thanks for the info.

    Ive been messing about with it since the post, its definately leaking from the nipple on the injector. I have injectors 059 130 277 S. Seems like the leak is because L shaped fuel return isnt really clicking back onto the injector. Il buy some O rings and give that a try.
