Default Redex?

Ok read in another thread about using redex or similar to help with rough idle and suchlike.
Got my 407 back tonight and they reckon they tested the injectors and one was giving off a dodgy reading. So they cleaned them.
Didn't get a really decent drive home to test for pull back but I think after reading other threads that this redex wouldn't harm to try as well?
My question is what the hell is it and which do I need? Mines a 407 se 2 litre petrol..04 which would be the EW10 engine.

Can someone link me a brand?
This is the stuff I presume?
Amazon Amazon
Guess I need the injector version?
Never used it before so any nods in the right direction appreciated.

It'll be fine, quite safe. Run the tank low-ish and chuck in a whole bottle of Wurth petrol injector cleaner.

In Norfolk, about 20 miles from Norwich. Have a few local garages that can read the ecu for the princely sum of about 30 quid but can't find anyone with planet.
So if there is anyone about I'd be pleased to hear from them! If only to have a more accurate reading done to help the garage.
