Broken fuel injector. Can I replace just one? Or the tip of this broken one?

Hi there,

I was cleaning my fuel injectors last night and managed to drop the sixth and final one I was cleaning. It hit the ground and cracked/removed the plastic tip-thing as seen in the photo. Should I just replace the whole injector? Or can I replace just that plastic part (the metal tip does not seem to be bent/broken)? If I replace the whole injector, which is the way I am leaning, is it okay to replace just one of the six injectors? The other five seem to be fine. Thanks.

Crossed threads are tight threads.
They sell them individually. I replaced mine with a Bosch purchased from rock auto.

from the looks of it, I would get a new o ring kit for all of them, its only a few bucks.

I poop in the furnace.
You can buy an O-ring and pintle kit. The broken plastic piece is the pintle, they just snap on. I would get the kit and replace all the rings and pintles and clean them, the injector itself is probably fine.

Coming in second just makes you the first loser!
If you can find the same brand get that one. I just had a bad injector on my 4.0 Jeep motor and I just bought one to replace it. Turned out to be just a hair taller so my fuel rail teeter totted on it. I ended up replacing them all with the newer 4-hole type.
