Thumbs down Ok Ok I give up

How do i get that stupid snap ring out of the top of the injector to replace the o ring where the oil rail plugs in? I have been working at it for about 6 hours now with no luck.

Lol, dunno, probably why ford won't replace them, but they will sell you an injector attached to the oring.

Thanks psdmikeb
