Pressure regulating valve (Saloon and Estate models) - removal and refitting

1 The brake pressure regulating valve is located within the engine compartment, just above the aperture in the wing inner panel through which the steering tie-rod passes. On pre-1986 models the valves comprise a metal housing bolted to the inner panel. On later models the valves, one for each brake circuit, are individually located in a bracket attached to the inner panel (see illustrations).

Removal
Note: Before starting work, refer to the warning at the beginning of Section 3 concerning the dangers of hydraulic fluid.

2 Unscrew the unions, noting their locations and disconnect the hydraulic pipes from the valve(s). Cap the ends of the pipes with bleed nipple dust caps to prevent fluid loss.

3 Unscrew the mounting bolts and remove the valve or mounting bracket as applicable.

On later models extract the retaining clips and remove the valves from the bracket (see illustration).

Refitting
5 Refitting is the reverse sequence to removal but bleed the hydraulic system as described in Section 11 on completion.
