I am attempting to remove the injector sleeves from a 1979 450SL

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '79 Mercedes?

450sl

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried a silicon spray and a pair of pliers to pull up the sleeves one came out and the others are real stubborn they turn but will not pull out

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes I want to know if I need a special puller ?

Hi, my name is***** is no special puller for the sleeves. It's not unusual for them to get stuck in the manifold. Try using an open end wrench that fits snug under the flange of the injector holder and see if you can pry them out. You may need to devise a pry bar under the wrench to lift them out.
