just did this entire job on my 02 bugeye friday.

the GBOD's do suck arse and the passenger side is the harder one to remove (counted 9 bolts all facing different directions!). i used a dremel to remove the hose from the drivers side and i will not be putting them back on.

we must have removed and set the injectors 15 times and every time we primed the injectors they leaked. after wanting to push my car off a cliff, we decided to get into another car (thank god there was one) and drive to the nearest auto parts store to find new o-rings (the first store was out so we had to drive another 45 minutes to another one to get them. thank god we were able to find them).
lifted the injectors again, placed the new o rings on and first turn of the key there were ZERO leaks!

we could have avoided 4 hours of unnecessary wrenching if we did not try to re use the old o rings (also the o rings that came on the pinks from the guy i bought them from).

even though you MAY be able to re use the o rings, if i can stress any advise enough here, do yourselves all the favor and learn from my mistakes and get NEW o rings no matter what before you do the injectors!

I put GBOD back on driver side - took me 5 min. I didn't bother installing it on passenger side.

Did this last week and everything went in pretty easy. The GBOD's are not as hard as I was led to believe. Got them out and Was going to leave some bolts out of the passenger side, but my friend helping me was intent on getting it all together. Had Deatschwerks injectors, so they had all new rings and everything. Forgot about the lube and had just used gas. Everything has been running great and no leaks so far. Basically, have new O-rings and another set available if you need them is what I've gotten out of the issues people have had.

going to do this right now.. needed to sticky this as im going be running in and out of the house...lol
update. I found I didnt have to remove the tmic. I was only doing the driver side as I had a bad injector. I found if I removed the oil fill tube it gave me access to the front breather bolt and the other 2 I just removed with a 10mm wrench, pretty straight forward, great write up to work from.

Is there any real reason to put that big heavy metal bracket back on?? it only really covers up the fuel rail and holds the wiring harness.

That would be the GBOD. Green Bracket of Death. Yes they are a huge pain, most people remove them, I certainly did. Some people state that they would help reduce chances of fire in a collision, but the overwhelming majority of people apparently remove them rather than deal with reinstalling.

For the reason above, I put the GBOD back only on driver side.

You can get a big bag of those for $15 from McMaster or Grainger.
