Default Advice on removing inlet manifold needed

I am doing the injector seals on my daughters 207 this weekend and as the inlet manifold is broken (lugs snapped that support airbox) that is getting done as well.

Can I flex up the fuel lines enough to free the manifold or do I need to remove them? I ask because the rail is buried down the back of the engine and it looks a nightmare of a job to dig down to get to the rail. Any advice....

Thanks.

Not always a great idea if you kink them the pipes are so hard to replace

You mean there snapped or the rubber bungs that the air box sits on are missing

Hi Monty

The lugs are snapped off. I have done a bit off YouTube research and the EGR cooler, valve and manifold pipe all come off as a complete assembly quite easily so I can get the the bottom nuts for the pipes. I will try to take pictures to help others.

While it is off I may as well blank the EGR, do you happen to know if blanking the EGR will put the engine management light on the 207 dash?

Thanks for the response.

Blanking the EGR will not put the light on just leave it plugged in though so its still working just not actually doing anything

One last question. I intend to change the injector studs as they appear to be of the yield type, they are not expensive and I understand that the official advice is to swap them. Is there a torque setting for putting the studs into the head?

Also I have heard nightmare tales of these studs snapping in the head, as I don't know the history of this car it is possible the bolts have been re-torqued over and over again. Obviously no one has a crystal ball but any thoughts on safest removal ideas? Perhaps just leave them in?

Thanks as always for the advice.
