Injector removal with Specialist Tools Australia

Nothing makes for a headache quite like injector removal. It’s a hefty challenge for even the most experienced mechanics, especially if suitable quality tools aren’t available.

Let’s face it, common rail injector removal can be a nightmare. Thankfully, the team at Specialist Tools Australia has kits specially designed to assist with diesel fuel system repairs, including modern Common Rail Diesel tools.

Over the years the Specialist Tools’ team has sourced the best quality automotive tools available in this field, bringing tools to the Australian market that have either been unobtainable or difficult to source here. Specialist Tools Australia has continually expanded its range to include specialised European tooling and tools that can alleviate the difficulties encountered in engine repair in Australia. These tools are now in stock here in Australia. The team at Specialist Tools Australia understands that mechanics can’t wait six to eight weeks for a tool to arrive in Australia so they can complete
a repair and get their customer’s back on the road. Specialist Tools Australia’s blue-ribbon range of Govoni tools are made in Italy and have some of the highest quality tools developed and manufactured for modern vehicles currently on the market. The Govoni injector removal kits are not only top-quality tools, but they are extremely functional, especially for the removal of Diesel Injectors.

They are designed to enable removal without damaging either the injector or the engine, and without requiring the dismantling of engine components to get the injectors out. Removing injectors without damaging them or their associated components allows them to be tested independently of each other, and saves a great deal of extra work and, ultimately, cost for the repair. Removing injectors without destroying any components can be a simple and easy job with the right tools and an understanding of the system you are working with, although some presentations can be very daunting – especially if there is a build-up of material around leaking injectors or simply around the structure of the engine and the injectors themselves. The time and money saved by these tools more than compensate for the cost of having them handy.

For this reason, Specialist Tools Australia has tried to ensure that they can provide their customers with the right tools for these repairs, stocked in Australia along with technical advice on the most effective method of using them. Often with injectors, the most important aspect of removal is that you can connect to the injector for removal effectively,
and that the extraction tool can mount to the engine block to provide leverage, using low impact force from tools such
as a Mechadraulic or Hydraulic rams, or a slide hammer arrangement that provides force with minimal jarring and a force that is perpendicular to the injector. Along with the injector removal kits, Specialist Tools Australia carries a full range of complementary tools for removing injector seals and for cutting and cleaning the injector seats. It also has a large range of injector adaptors as well as slide hammers, Mechadraulic and Hydraulic rams.

This kit allows injector removal with three distinct procedures:

• Using the pliers with holding arms perfectly fitting to the shape of the injector • Using the articulated joint adapter and the pivot, that must be screwed to the fitting of the Common Rail duct

• Using the special socket (suit Bosch) which ensures the removal of the injector without removing the electrical connection plastic top, the injector remains intact and working after removal.


If you’re working on removing Toyota-Denso injectors, then this kit is for you. The connectors attach to the injector without removing the electrical connector. This kit is extremely efficient with several suitable mounting plates that remove the injectors independently from the engine.


Govoni’s Master Kit GO405 is the ultimate go-to for seized injector extraction in Denso, Delphi, Bosch and Siemens diesel fuel systems.  This extensive kit is capable of removing very stuck injectors locked into the recess by combustion leakage and fouling around the injector. It uses engine mounted bars that locate on the fixing screws of the head that provide leverage directly onto the injector.
It is one of the most popular injector removal kits for Specialist Tools Australia.


The GO426 – M9R 2.0 DCI engines with Bosch injectors is a multi-stage injector pulling kit that’s designed especially for Renault, Nissan and Opel M9R engines which present with various signs of breakage in different parts of the injector body. It extracts broken injectors and releases blocked or seized injector nozzles with the valve nozzle retaining nut. This kit may be the only one of its type specifically designed to address these issues found in M9R engines.
Specialist Tools Australia also stocks numerous kits as well as single injector claws and sockets to fit a wide range of injectors including petrol injectors. This is just a small sample of the many injector removal tools that they have in stock – so if you have an injector issue, contact Specialist Tools Australia – their team can provide technical support as well as tools for almost any job on a diesel fuel system.
