Removing passenger VC

Well I am pulling my valve covers to check harnesses and install some a new injector on each side, what all has to come out to get the passenger side off? Anyone have any pics? I can access all of the bolts now except for the most rearward and bottom bolts. Really need some help on this guys thanks!

Alright I got the passenger VC off and now I am getting ready to put in my two new injectors, 3 and 8. I am also replacing the glowplugs and UVC harnesses. What is the best way to clear the motor of oil? Which fuse do I need to pull to shut off the IDM? Do I need to drain the Crankcase to do this? What about opening up the oil rail? Thanks.

8 is on the drivers side, do you mean 7?

pull the glow plugs, turn the motor by running a lead to the solenoid on the fire wall. jump from the connector that has a wire lead/cover on it to the positive on the batt.

No I mean 8. I had to change 8 and 3 and was having trouble with the passenger VC. After looking at my injectors I noticed that 1,2,3,4 are all AP63801AB while 5,6,7,8 are all AB1822803c1. Could this be part of my problem? This truck is driving me nuts, I cant wait to get it running right.

Do I need to drain the oil rail even if I am only doing one injector on each side? Everything I read says to drain it but they are removing all of the injectors?

Anytime you remove an injector you need to do that.


You just need to remove all the nuts, all 13 mm (a 13 ratchet wrench makes life easy on the two by #'s 5 and 7).

The coolant hoses also come out of their clips, and then use a screw driver to pry the clips from the bottom and they'll pop off.

You'll also have to remove the I/C pipes...

I've done it both ways. The last time I had to replace a single injector, I did not drain the oil line. Once the new injector was in, I turned the motor over (by hand) with the glow plug out. Then waited a few minutes, then cranked the engine over with the starter. Replace the glow plug, then crank the motor over for about 30 seconds. Button the motor back up, then crank the motor over for another 30 sec (both times done at the solenoid).

If you've never done this before, take the safe route and drain the oil line.

When draining the oil rail will oil only dranin into the cyinder that has the injector out or will it go into all of the cylinders? I really appreciate your help I want to make sure know all the details.
