Looking for injectors for 1.6 16v 2000 Bravo Trofeo....... any suggestions on where I can find patent parts at a reasonable price? Tried nearest scrap dealer but only got 3 in stock and cos I'm thick, can't use multimeter (?) to see if any good!

new injectors are £50 on ebay, thats a rip off, you can have 10 of them from a scrapyard for that price. using a multimeter is honestly as easy as using a microwave, surely you at least know someone who has one and knows how to use it?

Hi if i was you i wouldnt put 2nd hand injectors in always go for new, if you manage to talk the customer round then recommend a full injector rail when one goes another one always goes soon after saving you a lot of grief i even did this to my own Bravo (you would get the same time in labour and half the effort). if you was to get a new rail best place would be from a Fiat dealer

i've sold dozens of scrapyard injectors, never a single problem yet, i always test them before fitting. there's really no need to buy new injectors imo.

ehh customer? isnt it a DIY job that he's talking about.

If i went to a fiat dealer no doubt the labour would be the biggest charge, so of course they'd use new parts.

I managed to get 2 fuel rails and inlet manifold with injectors for only £45 including postage from some guy on eBay complete bargain. 7 out of 8 injectors were working perfect. I have had to replace 2 injectors on my 1.6 Brava and I still have not even considered replacing the entire fuel rail, after you have replaced 1 injector, which can be a pain the first time, doing it again takes no longer than 30-45mins. As with most things.. When you have done it once it is easier to do it again. I have never considered even going to a main Fiat dealer for an injector replacement, and that is all thanks to the excellent advice on this forum from the likes of Jug and other very knowledgeable people.

Indeed once done its easy. Like i said in a diff post if you have a bad injector theres no need to replace the whole rail! Just the injector (y)
