View Full Version : fuel injector installation

How hard is it to replace the fuel injectors on a 325 e30? does the intake manifold have to come off? or can the fuel rail come out without the intake manifold comming off? Thanks for any help.

2 10 mm bolts on the rail..pull it strait up...watch those little rubber rigs when your pulling it up...they tend to want to pop off and fall into the intake..

awesome, thanks....thats what I wanted to hear....I was dreading having to take the friggin inkate manifold off just to change the injectors.

Cuz for some stupid reason the service manual said to take the whole intake manifold off....but when I looked at it, it seemed that it should come out without pulling everything else out, so who knows what the guys that wrote the manual were smoking. Thanks again:)

np..good luck...and dont forget about those rubber rings that seal the injector nozzles,they love to fall into the hole..
