    Does this carbon build-up ever occur on the Common Rail (2009-2014) 2.0 TDI engines?

    Does anyone know?

    Cheers

    Barney91 - how did you get the injectors that stayed in the block? I have 2 that stayed behind :-(.

    Thanks
    VW have a removal tool, I was able to pull them by hand. Just be very careful and wiggle them out

    Thanks barney91 - I did look at buying the tool, but if I could pull them out by hand or some other DIY too I would try that first.

    A touch of wd40 may help loosen it up. The retaining clips should be replaced anyway so you could use them for leverage

    I had 2 stuck in the head but as I was replacing them anway I used a set of muligrips with a rotating wiggle motion and the came out without damage and yes you need to replace the 2 clips before reuse.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I tried to use angled pliers which bent :-(

    Will have to use the multigrips :-)

    I assume as you have the inlet manifold off that you are not in a position to wait for tools from the US, on some forums a guy made a puller from an old socket that he grinded and welded, if you have taken the clips off the injectors try to spray some carby cleaner or other around the outside, also try wiggling using as much force as you can with your hands use a cloth as a bit of a cushion for your hand. The tool that is used to pull the injector is a slide hammer with a shaped cup, to emulate that action you can use a bit of a tapping motion on you multigrips there is not much room to get a hammer behind them but with patience it should come loose.
