Hello,
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you,
Shantal

Hi shantal, I can wait a bit longer if you think you can find out for me, if you can't find out in the next few days cancel it and I'll have my money back.

Thanks

Hello the 5th injector is on cylinder 4 if you look on the fuel rail you'll see that the end cylinder has 2 injectors, its meant to inject extra fuel to help with DPF regeneration so it should only be energised every now and then there is an issue with these getting clogged and so sticking slightly open and weeping fuel so if yuo're getting poor fuel consumption ( should be about 45mpg on average) then look inot getting this injector replaced

Hi matt, I'm still struggling I have found a parts schematic on line and the 5th injector is on the far end of the block, not on top with the others, and is really hard to get at. I afraid it might be a trip to dealers unless you have any ideas?

Hello I think that there may be a recall for these parts so its well worth getting in touch with your dealer to see if your're eligible for some free repair work
