Injector Oring help please

Ok guys, So I followed all the info from the tech files on Oring replacement here and so far has been real easy. The problem is 1 injector is missing an oring. Another is missing the copper washer. The tech file says to fish the washer out but I'm stumped Can't seem to find it or figure out how. A little help would be greatly appreciated. Is it possible for the oring to just completly disapear? thanks chris

After closer inspection, I dont see how the washer could possibly get through the injector nozzle hole into the cylinder itself. It is definetley not in the injector tube.
I also noticed the the end of the injector has alot of dark carbon like build up on it and the rest are nice and clean. ? possible no washer to start with ? This is 1 of 2 that have been replaced at some time before me.

copper gasket will not magically disappear. Sounds like someone didn't install the injectors correctly.

I have it soaking in diesel now, thanks
I was hoping a tech would chime in about the missing oring, guess I'll call the dealer and see what they say.

I would replace the oring and pray that the injector is still working properly. Whoever installed the injectors was drinking a bit much that day or didn't know what the hell they were doing. Orings/washers/whatever don't disappear. I've seen a few with damage and eaten away a bit, but never gone.

Just a question though, if the injector came unseated cant the copper washers burn up completely? Two of mine came unseated and the washers completely burned up, I know they were on there before becuase I double checked a washer was on each injector and they arent in the cups. Just throwing that possibility out there.
