Help needed to diagnose fuel injector problem.

My 1989 230E is hesitating because it is not getting any fuel to #3 cylinder. I know this because there is no change in rpm when I pull the spark plug wire on #3 cylinder.

I tried changing the spark plug but there is no change. Then I exchanged the #2 and @3 fuel lines to see if the fuel distibutor was a problem but that also didn't change anything. Now I concluded that it must be a fuel injector problem.

The fuel injector seems to be very loosely installed and it is turning free in both directions. I have no experience on fuel injectors. Should I disconnect the fuel line to the injector and then pull it out to remove it ?
