      Hello again, very urgent - - - please
      I have now sealed the ace leak on the block the best I can.I began to refill the reservoir but as the oil reached the top it would go no further! Obviously there is air in the system.Besides having to take the fan belt off to get to the pump, is there an easier way to bleed the system? I would take it for a short drive but the RED light comes on immediately together with the warning tone! Any help much appreciated!
      Is there an easier way to bleed the ace system other than having to take the drive belt off?

      Help, urgent - I need help! (TD5 1999)because of a leak coming from two of the pipes from the ACE valve block, I am trying to drain the system so that I can seal it with a special silicon high pressure sealer.I live in Germany and where I am there is no Landrover help"! A mechanic has twice failed to seal it.The proble is this; in order to do this,the block must be dry and although I have emptied the reservoir and taken out the block filter,it is still very slowly dripping ace fluid, and this after three weeks.My question; What must I do to drain it completely dry? The silicon will not work while there is still oil coming out.Eventually I want the ACE system removed and replaced with a pully etc etc although there is nobody I know that can do this!
      The silicon seal I have was reccomended by a Landrover expert from Berlin who has done this many times with success.
