Fairly simple DIY job to replace or best left to a proper mechanic?

It's a bit of a bugger, it's a Peugeot lump and to get to the fixings the rocker cover needs to come off (quite a lot to remove) once that's off it's a case of removing the injector bolts, hopefully the injector will come out if your lucky, if not that's where the pain begins.

the recommendation is to change all 4 at the same time

wife's car went back to the garage we bought it from , they changed 1 first time
then the others decided to play up so it went back again

apparently pain in the rear to do !

Mayby they are leaking. Back to the op it's a bit of a pain to do but job time in a garage is around 4hrs ive done a few and the injectors have always been able to be remove them so i would say have a go at it and take plenty of pics when taking all the parts of just as a memory aid just incase you forget where a part goes.

It failed the mot due to fumes under the bonnet and in the cabin. Mot tester advised its a common fault. What I thought was a noisy water pump may be the injector according to the Internet.

Ended up getting it towed to a garage. Apparently the fuel system was air locked. They used a compressor to pressurise the fuel tank and had it going within the hour.
Turned out one of the injector seals was still leaking but not one of the two that had been leaking before so a bit (more) shoddy workmanship from me.silly

£105 later and it's working again.

Mechanic mentioned that if it had been a mondeo tdci he wouldn't have touched it.

Mot on Saturday and start looking for something Japanese to replace it.
