With the recent chip shortage having had an impact on automotive parts availability and cost, many people have been turning towards second hand modules and control units to help keep their vehicles on the road.

Unfortunately it is not usually as simple as buying a salvage module and fitting it to the vehicle, most modern automotive electronic components are programmed to the specific vehicle and are locked against being reused to help prevent theft etc.

Vauxhall Vivaro, Renault Trafic and Nissan Primastar vans fitted with the 2.0L M9R engine between 2007 & 2010 regularly suffer from Injector related problems, this is quite often due to a problem with water leaking past the metal scuttle panel which can result in damage to the electrical part of the injector. After carrying out any injector repairs or replacement it is advised to seal the scuttle panel to prevent any further water ingress.

There are a number of different types of tools available for removing seized injectors.

  • Sliding hammers
  • Manufacturers special tools
  • Manual type pullers
  • Hydraulic puller
  • Vibration type equipment

One of the most important aspects of any injector removal tool is the quality of the material it is made from. If you buy a cheap tool, it is unlikely that it will withstand the forces required to remove most injectors and is likely to damage either the injector or engine.
