DIY Replacing VW Intake Manifold and Fuel Injector

deutsche auto parts logo

Up next in the How To series with Deutsche Auto Parts is, replacing a VW Intake manifold and fuel injector. This is a great video that will teach you everything you need to know about replacing a bad intake manifold, or fuel injector. Also if you plan on inspecting your Volkswagen for carbon build up, this video shows you what to look for.

If you are not replacing either a intake or injector, skip to about 20 minutes to see what carbon build up on the intake valves looks like. You can also skip to about 27 minutes and see what a clogged fuel injector looks like.

Thanks again to the boys at Deutsche Auto Parts for having me out. Be sure to subscribe to their YouTube channel and follow them on Facebook. Be on the lookout for more VW how to videos from Humble Mechanic and Deutsche Auto Parts

      Hey Calvin
      Let me see if I can remember the tools

      Oil filter wrench
      T30 torx
      10mm socket
      17mm wrench
      7mm socket
      Hose pick
      13mm wrench or socket
      There is a triple square that you need but I forget the size. I’ll check when I get back to work.

      You will also need a ratchet and extensions.

      That may be about it. Hope that helps. Good luck with the repair. It’s pretty straight forward.

    hi I watched this to see the procedure for replacing the fuel injectors and I didn’t see anything about that I don’t know if I should put them in the head first or if I should put them in the intake manifold

    Can I do this on a Floor Jack up on the 2 front tires? Or I can Jack Stand on all 4 Wheels?

      Hey Rodimus Prime,

      I’m doing this right now with my CC on the ground. In the video, HM even notes that he’s doing this without having to lift the vehicle.

      Good Luck!
