Methods vary. I use a _HUGE_ pair of what we call 'water pump pliers'
or sometimes 'footprints' because you can always see where they've
been. At any rate, jawed gripers with _long_ handles.
Get a damn good grip on the outer (larger) nut, and then slip a massive
linear pry-bar (aka monster screwdriver) between the pliers and the
cam cover. Lever and swear.
The resistance offered by injector seals varies with age. When I tried
to remove the injectors from my Passat, I had to remove the cylinder
head, bolt it to a substantial block of wood, and use my son (a
competition swimmer) to operate a serious professional pry-bar.
Anyway - they pull out, and they can be _SODS_. WD40, duck spray,
