    any advice on the size,difficulty and cost of replacing the ace pipes on a disco 2 03 plate as ive discovered 1 is leaking before it goes into the valve block near the front of the car? Looks quite difficult going by a quick search on the internet.:eek:

    3 of the 4 pipes from front of block are high pressure 1 low which can be repaired with hose clips and hose for a while,the other 3 will need replacing pipes are about £100 each ,new pipes from pump come in 2 pieces to aid fitting

    have a good look at rear pipes where they go over chassis to ram often rusty there ,if your going to disturb block may as well replace all that are not in very good condition
