oooo thats a circuit code. you will have to remove the boost tube, 11mm nuts loosen, over the passanger side valve cover. then remove the glow plug module and bracket, 10mm nuts 6 total i think. then remove the nut for the tranny dipstick tube and move it out the way. remove the valve cover, 12mm bolts and studs,be patient for those 2 bolts at the evaporator case can be a pain. now with the valve cover removed, you will see either 2, allen plugs or 2, 1/2 drive plugs. the one at the rear isthe oil supply tube and if it is 1/2 drive, then you can leave it alone, but if it is allen (hex), then you have to remove both of them. also if it is allen then it make come out in a long tube that you will have to seperate so you can get the rail out, just wipe it off and you will see the split. be careful as there are orings on this tube and on the plug you have to be carefull with. now remove the 9 t-30 bolts that hold the oil rail down and then remove the oil rail with a little help from a screwdriver or prybar of some sort. then remove the injector with a long t-40 or t-45 bit ( depending on what year ) and as you unscrew the injector will come out.
now, if the injector is in two pieces you have a bigger problem. i have seen two issues with circuit codes that are more common than just a bad solenoid. i have sen them break in half, and i have seen the nut come off the solenoid. either can cause a later issue IF the pieces ever make it to your oil pump. if you see nothing wrong with the injector, then replace it with a new one, lubricate the orings with clean oil, reinstall with hand tools and torque to 35Nm. the reinstall everything and welcome to what i do for a living.
now if the injecot is broke in half, then get a oil rail for it as well because the nipples will loosen up and under high pressure flex to much and snap off the top of the injector. if you just replace the injector, chances are it will happen again. also inspect the o-rings on the plug and oil supply tube. if any are questionable or damaged then you also need to replace the oil rail due to a bad machine surface. good luck. i know this is long winded but i tried to tell you everything i can.
