Ace valve block seal removal

Recommended Posts

Hi would anyone be able to tell me how to remove the seals from the ace valve block ? As when I got mine someone had replaced the pipes but not the seals and it’s leaking.

Try the Discovery forum - RR don’t have ACE as far as I know.

ACE is Active Cornering Enhancement.  It is a hydraulically actuated torsion bar (similar to an antiroll bar) that is electronically adjusted to keep the front suspension level.  It was fitted to 7seat Discovery IIs which had rear EAS but coil sprung fronts.  RRC and P38 had EAS on all four corners, so the EAS would compensate for roll.  This is the first time I have heard of ACE in relation to any RR.

Perhaps it looks bodged because the prev. owner fitted it?

 

Unlikely - it’d be a hell of a job with all the wiring and ecu.  I thought the EAS would negate the need for ACE, but then again, the Sport is meant to have sharp handling...

My son works for an established Land Rover independent garage. He tells me ACE is an option for RRs. However experience is they last about 3 years and the seals are not replaceable. So replacement is the only option. However take a lot of time and effort to replace depending on model. So labour costs can be quite high.  Expensive, they usually recommend to customer to fit standard antiroll bar

I know a lot of D2 owners remove the ACE and rear EAS because of recurring reliability issues.
