I have started to strip my XE, do I remove the loom from the fuel rail by undoing the little metal springs on the connectors or remove the whole fuel rail?
to get the injectors out you need to remove the loom from the top by undoing those little clips and the thhe injector rail has to come off then the injectors them selfs
you just have to press the C clip all the way in, the ends splay out due to its design, then the plug can be pulled off. piece of pish.
you shouldnt have to remove anything mechanical. the whole loom will come out with everything in place.
I done mine with a pair of pliers, puller all 4 clips off, removed the black plastic loom box, then pushed the 4 clips back on (so I don't lose them), 10 second job (so long as you have disconnected all the other connectors and GND connections).
