want to rebuild all four, cant find a solid website that looks good. anyone knows of a place local in NC, or a good online site please let me know
Did you contact Giles or the diesel shop in Garner? You should also have some Bosch diesel shops closer to you, but the one in Garner is known to be good, as we've used them before.
(I saw your thread on NCDubs)
I've had to 'rebuild' mine several times since i've got my car. It's not horrible hard, just have to be patience and make sure you THOROUGHLY clean everything. I had a needle in one of my injectors break before while i retorqued the halves together. I never calibrated mine, just wanted it to run so i could drive the damn thing. Haven't had any problems for nearly 10,000 miles now. Couldn't get the halves to seat properly the first couple of times through. I also soaked all the parts in ATF over night just for some reassurance.

I just buy new nozzles for mine, and keep the existing shims. ~ $11 each.
Rebuilt ones are $30 w/ core exchange.
Vince's write-up, is right on track.
Home of the $35 VW-D
(look in your neighbor's brier patch to find your next Rabbit )
(25) VW-D's IDI's & (3) B4 TDIs and various other clattermobiles
not saying they are a good option, cause i would only consider them if they were the last injector on the face of the earth..
either send them to a good shop and have them rebuilt, or follow the vince waldon write-up..
