ACE High Pressure Pump - Banjo Connection Torque Concern
Land Rover has identified a concern associated with the Active Cornering Enhancement (ACE) pump banjo connection as fitted to Discovery Series II models. The banjo may, under certain conditions, suffer from torque relaxation and allow fluid to leak past the joint. This may prevent the ACE system from operating. Low system
pressure will lead to an amber or red warning light on the instrument console. In extreme cases, should the vehicle continue to be driven, the fluid leak could lead to fire.
