What are the connectors beneath the intake manifold?

I was wondering what the connectors that are below the intake manifold are. They have a wire that goes around the top of them that you deppress to disconnect them. Injector plugs? It looks like there is one for each cylinder.

You don't depress the wire clip you have to pull it out, and yes they are injector plugs.

Oh ok. I removed one I think by pressing down on the wire...haha it came out easy enough, but then I cracked one when I was wiggling the intake manifold out. Are they easy to replace or should I just glue the plastic back together. It still pushes on fine and stays in place. I'd hate to have to spend a bunch for one little plastic connector. Thanks for answering my question

Plug it in and see if it misses, if not drive it and enjoy it. Just remember which one is cracked if you ever develop a miss. When you need injectors also replace the injector harness. You can't replace just that plastic connector, you have to replace the whole harness.

Actually the wire clips are designed to be depressed to unplug the injector plug. Just squeeze the wire clip, and pull up on the plug. No need to remove the clips and take a chance of having the wire clip get lost.
