injector issue

So I think I found the problem - I pulled the valve covers and unhooked each injector 1 at a time and found that the passenger side #2 injector didn't affect the motor when I unhooked it. So I pulled the injector but the brass cup stayed down in - any ideas on how to get it out???

IDK, we watched a 'how to' remove injectors on you tube and the guy said to make sure the brass cup was with the injector. I just wanted to make sure because I couldn't get it out and didn't want to screw something up. I do know though that you can't rely on everything you see on there, that's why I wanted to ask.

The cup stays. Rosewood Diesel Shop makes the kit to change the cups and the tool to do it with. It isn't cheap, and unless the cup is cracked (Burning a lot of oil, coolant mixing with oil...etc) they don't need replacement.
