Injector Removal tool

Hi guys, I was surfing on the old net and came across this interesting tool, it is an injector removal tool and is available from a company called
www.fondera.co.uk

It costs about £136 and if it's good then it would be a hell of a lot of less trouble to get one and do your own vehicle as opposed to giving it to the dreaded Mercdads stealerships.

It is also being sold here :
MERCEDES VITO & SPRINTER IN-SITU INJECTOR REMOVAL TOOL on eBay Hand Tools, Garage Equipment Tools, Cars, Parts Vehicles (item 110152860766 end time 01-Aug-07 16:41:21 BST)

Anyone seen this or have one and can tell us if it is any good?

How to Fix Little Dents

To fix a single dent (like the one pictured), it is probably not worth the time and paperwork it takes to fill out the insurance claim. Besides doing it your is easy enough --the tools won't cost much, and the instructions won't make your head spin.

You can bang out that dent, fill those nicks, and refinish that paint job with a body hammer and dolly, a sander with a 36-grit disc to remove paint, a putty knife and body filler squeegees to apply filler, a bodyworking file ("cheese grater") to level the filler, a stroke sander to smooth it, an air compressor and spray gun to apply primer/surfacer/paint, and a buffer to shine it all up. Thanks to today's body repair materials-better paints, improved fillers and two-part primer/surfacers-bodywork and painting to a mirrorlike finish has never been easier to do in your own shop.






Bang it out

To remove a dent, first gain access to the back side of the body panel by removing items like headlight buckets, inner fenders, door panels and interior trim. Then, place a dolly on the outside of the dent and then hammer on the inside of the dent, striking the metal against the dolly. The key is to go slowly and work around the circumference of the dent, banging it out until it lies just below the undamaged area. After the dent is out, put the dolly on the inside of the dent, then tap the area surrounding the outside of the dent to knock in any high spots.




Prep & Apply Filler

When you're sure all the sheetmetal is just slightly below the surface of the surrounding area, use a disc sander with 36-grit paper to remove all paint and primer from the dent and surrounding area. This will give the body filler a rough surface (called tooth) to hang on to once it has hardened. After thoroughly mixing the filler with hardener, smooth it on the damaged area with a plastic filler applicator. The filler semihardens in 10 to 15 minutes to the consistency of cheddar cheese.

Smoothdown & Sand Down Filler

At this point it's easy to smooth with a body file. Use the file to knock the filler down so it is slightly higher than the finished repair will be. After about 15 to 30 minutes, the filler becomes hard.At this point you can use a hand or air-powered stroke sander with 80-grit paper to bring the filler down to the level of the body. If you see any bright, shiny metal spots in or around the filler, those areas are high. Use the pointed (pick) end of a body hammer to tap them in slightly, then refill and resand.

Prime & Surface

Before the repaired area can be painted, scratches, pits and waves must be completely removed or they'll show up as reflections. A primer/surfacer forms a thick layer of material over the area, which is then sanded down to make the repair smooth and level. Two-part primer/surfacers, consisting of the primer and a hardening agent, allow a thick layer to be applied over the repair in only one or two coats. After a half-hour of drying the primer is ready for sanding.

(Warning! Before applying any primer or paint, be sure to wear a respirator rated for organic solvents.)

Contrast paint the primer/surfacer

Before you sand, apply a light mist of black lacquer from a spray can over the repaired area. This contrast coating will reveal imperfections that will disappear as you sand. Make sure there is adequate ventilation, and also make sure that pilot lights and other flame sources in the general area are turned off.





Prep for Paint

To sand the primer, use a rubber sanding block and 400-grit waterproof sand paper. The trick is to sand lightly while frequently dipping the paper in a bucket of water to keep it clean. When all of the black contrast coat has disappeared, the repaired area is finished. Then clean and prepare the surface surrounding the repair to accept paint then wipe the entire panel with a solvent-based wax remover. Now, wetsand the area again to be painted with 600-grit waterproof sandpaper. If you're going to blend the paint into the original paint, make sure to sand an area larger than the area where you will be applying the paint. Thoroughly rinse the area, let it dry and then wipe again with wax remover. Mask off adjacent panels, then cover nearby wheels and major portions of the car with painter's plastic sheeting to shield it from overspray.




Paint


Mix the basecoat with the appropriate amount and type of solvent according to the maker's instructions. Before spraying, gently wipe the area to be painted with a tack rag, then spray the panel or repaired area. If you are blending, apply only enough basecoat to cover the repaired area, then taper off as you move away from the repair. After the basecoat has dried thoroughly, you'll notice its finish is quite dull. This is so the clearcoat will adhere tightly. Do not sand the basecoat before applying the clearcoat. After mixing the clearcoat with hardener, according to the manufacturer's instructions, apply a medium wet coat and let it flash dry 5 minutes or so before applying a second coat. After letting the clearcoat dry for an hour, remove all masking tape. Then wait one day before polishing.





Polish

Chances are the finish already looks pretty good. But to make it flawless, it pays to color-sand and polish the entire repair. Use 1500-grit sandpaper to flatten the finish, followed by rubbing compound to remove the scratches left by the sandpaper. Finish up with polishing compound to make the finish flawless. After polishing, wait one month to apply wax.

Info on Vito

Hi Guys there is someone selling this info on eBay, so I thought I'd put it here. Not a lot but there, but may help someone.



Evolutions of Mercedes Benz Vito (2003 - Present):
Year
Change or development
1996
Vito launched. Pay load 1,000 Kg.
2000
New diesel engine available: common rail TD2.2 diesel to accompany 2.0 petrol engine.
2003
Heavily revised Vito. Now just has CtD2.2 diesel engine. Payload now 1,015 - 1,080 Kg.


Specific Engine Checks for Mercedes Benz Vito (2003 - Present):
Area
What to look for
What it means
What to do
Injectors
1) Check that the van starts easily from cold or warm. 2) Once the engine has been running for a few minutes, smell around the cab and engine for diesel or oil fumes. If you turn the cab fan on full this will suck any fumes into the cab which can be a good test.
If the engine turns over but doesn't start the most common reason is the injectors (sticking open). If you can smell fumes, then the injector seals have failed and lead to a build up of carbon above the injectors.
When buying Negotiate a £600 discount or have the repair completed.
Glow plug
Check that the glow plug lights comes on with the ignition and goes out after about 5 seconds.
If the glow plug stays illuminated, the plugs need to be replaced.
When buying Negotiate a £400 discount or have the repair completed.


Specific Interior Checks for Mercedes Benz Vito (2003 - Present):
Area
What to look for
What it means
What to do
Steering
Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock and listen for a squeak or groaning noise. Also notice if the steering appears to be snatching as it turns.
These symptoms suggest that a front suspension strut, top mount or steering rack bush need to be replaced.
Have the van inspected to establish which it is.
Gears
Check that the gears change relatively easily. It is a cable-based system so will be a little notchy but should not be too stiff.
The gearbox needs to be repaired (usualyy a cable replacement) or the clutch may need to be replaced.
Have the van inspected



Specific Suspension Checks for Mercedes Benz Vito (2003 - Present):
Area
What to look for
What it means
What to do
Front tyre
Inspect the outside edges of the nearside front tyre. The legal limit for tread depth is 1.6mm above the base of the groove across 75% of the tyre.
The the nearside front tyre (especially the outer edge) wears quicker than the rest of the tyres.
Rotate the tyres around the vehicle regularly to increase their life.
Anti-roll bar links
As you drive the car over rough surfaces or bumps (e.g. speed bumps) listen for a knocking noise coming from the suspension.
A knocking noise from the suspension usually indicates that an anti-roll bar link needs replacing.
Negotiate a £200 discount or have the repair completed.


Recall History of Mercedes Benz Vito (2003 - Present):
Date

Installing and removing the armrests
Swing the armrests up.
Press the
swivel hinge of the armrest against the backrest and as you do so
pivot the armrest back by about 45°. The armrest can be removed in this
position. Cover the armrest socket with the appropriate caps.

To install, place the armrest into the socket in the 45° position - the unit may
otherwise be damaged. Press the swivel hinge gently against the backrest
and pivot the armrest forwards.
Note:
Do not use force when fitting or removing the armrests.



Regards
SARGE

A car PC or carputer is a car tricked-out with electronics for playing radio, music and DVD movies, connecting to the Internet, navigating and tracking with satellite, taking photos, and any electronic gadget a person wants in a car.

The only place car PC enthusiasts can go for advice, tips and tools is a handful of hard-to-find Web sites--until now. Car PC Hacks is your guide into the car PC revolution.

Packing MP3 players, handheld devices, computers and video-on-demand systems gives you a pile too heavy to carry. But add a car and put them together, you've got a powerful and mobile multimedia center requiring no lifting. The next time you give kids a lift, you won't hear, "Are we there yet?" Instead, expect "We're there already?" as they won't want to leave the car while playing video games from multiple consoles.

Car PC Hacks is the first book available to introduce and entrench you into this hot new market. You can count on the book because it hails from O'Reilly, a trusted resource for technical books. Expect innovation, useful tools, and fun experiments that you've come to expect from O'Reilly's Hacks Series.

Maybe you've hacked computers and gadgets, and now you're ready to take it to your car. If hacking is new and you would like to mix cars and computers, this book gets you started with its introduction to the basics of car electrical systems. Even when you're unclear on the difference between amps and watts, expect a clear explanation along with real-life examples to get on track. Whether you're venturing into car PC for the first time or an experienced hobbyist, hop in the book for a joy ride.
