This X5’s #6 injector has been ripped apart by someone, trying to extract it from being fused to the cylinder head. Additionally, he also damaged #5 in the process. I had to make a special tool for this occasion, so I can extract the remaining piece out of the cylinder head, without the removal of the entire head which would be $$$$$.
This whole predicament could be prevented if the partition walls were replaced earlier.
This is a perfect example why you should take your luxury vehicle to a specialist, as we all know this is a common issue on these vehicles.
I appreciate the knowledge of a general practitioner or doctor, but you can get brain or heart surgery only from a specialist. Correct ? (I didn’t intend to offend any doctors in here, this is only meant to highlight each has their own fields of specialty for obvious reasons.)
Folks you have bought a luxury automobile, so please give it a proper care or you will spend way more trying to resurrect it. We care, do you?
