    Fuel rail options

    i tried to remove the fuel rail to check the filters in the injectors. the last owner didnt care about upkeep so i was turning rusty screws lubed with PB Blaster but spun the aft screw in the brass insert. I wasnt keen on putting heat to it near fuel. safety first. so its stripped in the manifold spinning the insert. i really dont want to yank it off and buy a new mainifold, should i dremel cut the screw head off and try to pull out the insert or what? thanks

    Did you try squeezing the manifold around the boss to keep it from spinning?

    I found some replacement inserts from mcmaster. They fit the bolt thread and are textured to grip the plastic. It doesn't torque down hard but it definitely holds the rail snug. Been using them on my GTI. I had to buy 25 of them. I have given some away to others with the same problem. PM me your address and I will mail you a few. No charge. They worked for me and if it works for you it is cheaper than a manifold.
