I remove the MB's injectors by clamping a large pair of grips on them
and then levering the grips away from the cam cover with a large
straight pry bar that unaccountably says "screwdriver" on the handle.
But injectors _can_ be hard to shift. The removal of my Passat's
injectors is documented in the archives, but it involved removing the
head, bolting it to a railway sleeper (tie) and employing my super-fit
18-year-old son (who swims _fast_ for fun) on a three-foot wrecking
The harder they are to shift, the more important it is that they _are_
shifted and the more likely it is that you'll need to replace the
O-rings that seal the top of the injectors.
