How do I remove the fuel rail from my 2006 S60 2.5T?

Post by EngineeringBloke » Tue Mar 05, 2019 7:58 pm

I want to replace the fuel injector o-rings and filters, but I could not tell how to detach the incoming fuel line from the rail.

There is a clip at the fuel rail where the fuel line comes in which is held by a Torx screw. I removed the screw, and the clip, but I did not see if that was enough to release the fuel line. I really did not want to yank on the rail and break the line on my daily driver!

Yes, you yank the rail. Posted a video with step by step if it helps.

Thanks, Chris, I removed the fuel rail yesterday.

I followed the video, except I left the wiring harness in place, but shifted it aside after releasing from the fuel injectors. And, I removed the fuel pressure sensor instead of disconnecting its electrical connector - more fuel came out the side into a rag when I did that.

After removing the two rail retaining bolts, and the Torx-15 screw and the fuel line retaining clip it holds, I was able to lift up in the rail and it came free quite easily. There was resistance from the injector o-rings in the manifold, but there was no friction on the fuel line.

I had some mishaps and I will update further later.

After I put it all back together, the engine had a misfire on 1 and 2, but this cleared up, and after a drive, I removed the codes and they did not return. However, I am awaiting a new Bosch injector.


Update: Clarified that I had removed the fuel line retaining clip prior to pulling on the fuel rail.
