    A disconnect tool would be handy but it can be done with picks or small regular (strait) screw driver. Yup, good idea to release the rail presure @ the schroeder(sp) valve first.. Then rubber cap the open ends of the fuel lines and rail in/out ports to prevent dirt/debris from entering the fuel system...

    You don't need to disconnect the fuel lines. You can pop the injector/fuel rail off the intake and lay it over to the drivers side with the fuel lines connected

    while this is the way i did it...i dislike this way...just due to the fact that popping them back on and off is a pain and not the easiest ..

    If you have the tool, It is much easier to get them out of the way. I did it the way Cutlass described the first time and it seems much easier to get them out of the way.

    Either way will work though.
