Some chips increase the fuel injection pressure which ain't good for injectors. Before embarking on replacment injectors you'll need to have a correct diagnosis first.

If you need to replace one injector all should be replaced at the same time - then they will need coded to the ECU.
It should be possible to have the existing injectors refurbished.
A diesel specialist would probably be the cheapest option but expect to pay around £120 per injector.
On most occasions the injectors can be an absolute pig to remove necessitating the use of a specialist puller.:)
