Removing injector connector

I am in the process of replacing the glow plugs and decided to do new valve cover gaskets as well. While unplugging the injectors, 1 of the plugs had a piece break off up in the connector. So I'm not able to plug in my new harness until I remove the piece still up in there. From this image, it's up in the left corner - very small piece preventing me from plugging in. there are 4 torx screws on top the connector. Can I remove those to remove the connector and clean out the broken plastic or do I have to remove the whole injector?

When I say "plugs broke off inside the connector" I mean that when I went to unplug the injector, part of that connector plug snapped off inside the top of the injector. If I have to remove the injector that's fine... just not sure what would be involved with the oil and fuel situation (if anything).

Honestly not sure what pulling those screws will do. All I do know is if you need to remove the injector, you'd need to drain the oil rail, to avoid dumping it into the cylinder.

Fuel rail too, IIRC.

I suppose I will work with a paper clip or maybe some compressed air to see if I can just blow the plastic piece out then. Would really like the avoid all that trouble if possible... thanks for the info!

An air compressor, blow gun and flexible hose to point up into the injector connector took all of 15 seconds... sure beats removing everything. Wish I would have thought about that last night when it was raining.
