Just buy a new bit of hose and replace all injectors with new hoses not expensive 15 minute job. Hope this helps

I agree, it's an easy cheap job.

On an OM606, you definitely need to buy 2 metres of leak off hose to replace it all. I don't know if you can get away with only buying 1 metre for an OM605.

The only slight note of caution is to be very careful not to scratch the pipe stubs / barbs on the injectors, or your new pipe might not seal as well as you need it to.
