Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Graeme from Glasgow, Scotland.

I have a 3.0V6 DCi, but unfortunately not in a Vel Satis, but in a Grand Espace Initiale 05.

If it helps, I used to sell Renaults and have a Renault Sport 172 Cup that I have had from new.

So, on that,

Can anyone tell me how the injectors are held in place?

Are they held in from under the rocker cover, as two of mine have "Popped out" unfortunately, not for a meal, but are sat up about 3-5mm from the one that hasn't popped out.

if it is possible to see my pics that i posted, it is, from the right, the first two that are sat up.

I hope someone can help.

Thank you.

Graeme

Think I now see what i am looking for and it makes sense, the two that have came out seem to be held in by one bolt, rather than one each. Hmmmmnnn.

  Yes, those two injectors are held with one bracket . Tighten it back up but don,t overdo it. See how that goes.

Noticed that Lexi when I undid it all, it was loose, but the internal injector pipe had snapped as well, so looking, to no avail for a used one as well as the seals that fit onto the rocker cover…price for new ones from Renault are frightening. £34 plus vat each and the injector pipe is £78 plus vat.

Been searching for over a week and nadda!

  Did you try the breaker in Shotts?  Renault breaker and had a few bits off him last year.

     Two very nice Renaults you have Gee!

I have not Lexi, typical that nowadays I rely on internet to solve any issues, do you have a number for him, 3.0 dci parts are rare or so it seems.

 

Thank you, I will post some pics if i can get to them.

 

Cheers.

   Cracking Espace.  You won't get a more useful, flexible and comfortable drive.

 If no luck with him, keep an eye out for that engine in those big Vauxhalls. It is in a few less common Saab too and possibly a few others.
