  • [Corsa D 2006-2014] Leaking Injectors or something else?


  • #2
    Hi Welcome to the forum. I knew before I looked at your photos, this was going to be , as we say in the trade . The black death. Why it's called  that is because the seals are leaking on injectors. And if the injectors are not removed and the seals are replaced. The leaking Diesel turns to like a tar and completely welds the injectors into the cylinder head. And you just can't get them out. Let's hope they haven't been leaking for to long. Surprise the mechanic didn't spot the injectors leaking. And I don't think he will want to change them. Take it to a Garage that specialises in Diesels.

        I have the same problem, it's the number1 injector. I can't shift it. Number 2 moves, but not number 1. I've tried the slide hammer but don't think it's man enough, need a bigger one.
        The ones I've seen on ebay come with an attachment mean for the Bosch injectors, but it doesn't look like it will fit under the injector flange. Does anyone know the type I need?

          All sorted now with help from a facebook group.
          Got a professional injector removal tool. Still took some beating though.
          And yes it was the black death, took ages to clear all the tar off. It had obviously been doing it for some time before it started ticking.

            Thanks for letting us know. Glad you're all sorted. Must of taken some effort to remove the injectors.
