2000 Vito

Hi Benzies,
I drive a 2000 Vito and have had problems with the injectors leaking,
A garage was supposed to have fixed it but didn't???
Went to the Mercedes Dealer and This progressed well until they found one of the bolt holes was bad, and it would cost lots to get the head off and engineered.
Too expensive so I got the Vito back to my local garage and fixed the injectors myself, instead of bolts, I used s/s rod and nuts.
After cleaning out the holes/thread as good as possible installed the new rods 100mm long (6mmx1) and tightend the nuts about 17.5 Nm Used Loctite 660 in the bolt holes to fix the rods
Having done all this and being very confident that they wont leak.
We can't get it started????
Not enough pressure on the rail Checked everything twice , bled the system using bellows but still no pressure.
Any suggestions ???
I am a self employed Renovator and the Vito is my mobile workshop.
I love driving it or going on holiday trips, I put a false floor in it with drawers underneath for tools and parts.
When going on a trip store all my stuff in my workshop, chuck a queen size mattress in the back and away we go!
Despite all the hasssles I have had I still think its a beaut van and love driving it
Also SRS light stays on???
