Injector seals?!
#1
Hello again, still trying to get my head around the 'fuse 25' problem I had but I've also just found out that I need new injector seals, it might be a daft question but are they universal? I can't seem to find any for the 1.8d engine? is it going to be a special order from citroen themselves?

Thanks in advance

The un-numbered small "washer" is the shimming washer and that's spec'd separately depending on pressure correction.

   

I'm presuming it's one of the numbered parts in this diagram. Correct?

Hello again Addo, All I know is that the 'small copper seals need to be replaced' there is a lot of diesel bubbling around the 3rd injector and a little bit on the 2nd but I presume it's best to do all 4 including changing the hoses etc? I'm not that mechanically minded you see but I like to try and gain as much knowledge as I can before a garage claims to me that I need a full engine rebuild (lol) . I'd guess that the part I need is either the number 2 or the number 4 (or both?) on the diagram you provided - after several phonecalls i've managed to finally find a place that's willing to do this job (even though I thought it wasn't a hard task) i'll try and get some more info today and post back what the guy says

Just go to Citroen , give them your reg no /engine details, pay and thank the man.

Not sure how many washers the 1.8d has but while you have pulled the injector I would change all the washers.

Took it to a company called 'SIS' (specialized injection services) and he said that two of the injectors would need refurbing - the diesel was not leaking via the bottom as i thought but was leaking from below the top bolt and dribbling down making it look as though it was leaking from the bottom thread when it was not - anyway for £90 he's going to take two injectors out - refurb them and then replace all 4 seals anyway. I phoned a fair few garages and they all said 'no, I don't really touch injectors' and after trips to eurocarparts, GSF and citroen themselves I got no where in purchasing just the seals (unless I wanted a pack of 50 from citroen lol) but thanks for your help guys, no doubt in the near future i'll be posting some more issues i'll have

Just a follow up, I had two of the injectors reconditioned and the leak has now stopped, although he did find a leak in the 'top casing of the throttle body' and to be fair I dont know how I didnt see it before - anyway its sorted now so a thank you to everyone
