So I am hopefully nearing the end of my RR timing chain guide adventure. With not a lot of spare time to work on the Rover, I fell behind when I had to circle back around to redo the top end timing. In the process when pulling off the electrical box atop the driver-side valve cover, several of the little brown connector wires pulled out of the plastic connectors. None thankfully on the passenger side.

For anyone who has encountered this, is there a strategy for getting the wire to stay in the connector? I can get it to slide in but it does not stay. I was thinking about glueing it in?

The pins have retaining barbs that hold them in the connector. If you have damaged or broken the barbs off you are going to have a heck of a time getting them to staying place well enough to make firm contact.

I was afraid of that. I am thinking glue may end up being my option. I can get the little connector to slide in the appropriate spot, but like you stated, its not staying.

If you're talking about the injector wire going onto the actual injector, several break off when I do the job on whatever vehicle, and I just push them on with no issues ever.
