Default Fuel injector caps - cant remove - 06-26-2020, 04:18 PM

We bought 6 brand new index 12 FIs from FCP Euro. the caps are NOT coming off. I used a pipe wrench on the first one and it looks like I ended up damaging the injector. Pulled out the second one, same thing, NOT coming off without a ton of rotating, pulling, clamping, etc. The videos online make it look like you take some pliers, add a little pressure and they pop right off. These aren't coming off no matter what we do. Any advice on this?

Thanks

They PUSH off easier then PULL off.

Eat your Wheaties 1st before trying again.


No matter how fast I go there's always someone slower in front of me.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him Jet Ski.
