My Kia Sportage 2013 1.7 Diesel engine lost power and the engine started ticking when running.

Took it immediately to the local garage who found, upon inspection, that there was a o-ring broken on the injector causing the ticking and a hole in the rocker cover which was spewing oil everywhere. (Shown in pic)

The garage have told me to replace the rocker cover they've had to remove (and damage in the process as they were ceased tight) all of the injectors. I've sourced refurbished Injectors from Germany and had them shipped over to reduce costs as they were £300 each from Kia but now they can't get the rocker cover. Its on back order with kia apparently.

Searching the Internet i can't seem to find any 2nd hand either.

Can anyone help locate one?

Thanks.

Thank you, I'll try that. I'm still at a loss as to how that tiny hole got there in the first place. It's very strange. I've also messaged a couple of sellers that are selling cars and they ask that you message them for parts.
