hel.
i dont know how to remove these 89 325i injector clips.
i think they pull out,
but i would be relieved to hear that someone else did this and what tool they used.
the below are similar to mine, its all i can find online of these things.
im not sure when they changed the design, but mine are not like my friends which has the simple PUSH-IN type

they are NOT the ones that have a "push-in" metal pin (u-pin). the pics are small ...so are the clips..

thanks

just work one end off w/a screwdriver gently and the other will pop with it. were swapping engines on a jetta right now and ive run into a few of those myself. its the easiest way i have found.

okay, ill do it next week when i have a sunny day .

i tried removing them again and it seems i need a screwdriver with a 90degree bend in the tip.

lifting from the bottom and pulling back.

i will try the bending one side but am I risking bending the bars out of shape or if i break them will they just fall off.

ill be more willing if i know my local shop has spares in case i ruin somthing.

thanks for the help , and those femme's are raging for attention.
best to give in to that, once in awhile./

they r stronger than u think bro. i tweaked the he!! out of the ones on the jetta block, and they clipped in just fine. stick a normal, smaller flathead driver under one side and gently pry the end off. it will pop it off easilly, and the rest will follow.


WHEN WORKING ON CARS, SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO PUT A LITTLE BIT OF BALLS BEHIND THE WORK. IF IT ALL CAME APART EASILY, MORE WOMEN WOULD BE MECHANICS. QUIT BEING GIRLY-MEN. OUR CARS ARE MADE TO DO 120 THROUGH CORNERS!!!!! THEY CAN TAKE A BIT OF ABUSE FROM A SCREWDRIVER AND LAUGH AT YOU FOR IT.
if half of you knew a few of the things we HAVE to do at the shop to get stuff apart/together........you would cry. but thats just how it works. ever tried to get a
siezed wheelbearing out of the hub??????? WITHOUT A BLOWTORCH AND PRYBARS???????

thanks, i will not hesitate on the proceedure.

im only careful because i break soo much stuff and things made from plastic i am not used to.
what ever happened to the metal.

ive already broken a few things (plastic) in the engine bay just by not being careful, so understand i needed to know what the breaking points are. they might be from china, aftermarket fixes.

and im certain i would have pulled out the entire fuel rail WITH the 4 bolts if someone hadn't warned me about them.

i just noticed them a few days ago, hiding way under the elect. rail. and im glad i asked because its been raining cats n dogs here for a week straight, not a good time to wait on the bus.
