Do you know anything about the air release?

comment Is the fuel in my engine under pressure?
Thanks for this. I have changed the hose now, however I think I have air trapped in the system. I drove the car 10 miles earlier and it was choking heavily at times, particularly going uphill. I see two valve-looking caps to the left of the fuel filter. Would opening one of these up help remove the trapped air? Should I do it when the engine is running?

Yes, this was my concern really. As the fuel line is between the injector and the pump I was concerned about pressure. Do you believe this is safe to change myself? On the face of it the change seems pretty straightforward. Remove the two clips and re-fit the new hose, then clip it on again. Also, how do I remove excess air from the fuel line after the change?

Thanks. I'm surprised that there is nothing on the VOSA database for the injector recall. There is plenty on Google about it, unfortunately nothing about what cars are affected. Check HERE
