the small line is a vent line, which goes to the inlet of the compressor, which is plumbed up to by the petrol fill-neck to keep from ingesting air. I think I may have that line in my pile of stuff, send me an email (below).Roo said:I'm currently refitting the valve block assembly and compressor (the box that contains these) onto the range rover. However, upon refitting ive noticed that outlet 11 on the valve block leaves the block and travels to the rear of the car. about 18" from the block it terminates into a piece of rubber tubing (perished) which is open to atmosphere. What is this for and am i missing something/is this contributing to my problems? I've also found the compressor seal is worn. would this create the errors i'm getting displayed on the dash?
Thanks for any input on this!

After 2 attempts (@ £35 ea) at indy diagnostics, I made up a cable and downloaded the latest EASunlock software form RSW solutions. I've managed to identify a faulty height sensor - you can move each corner up and down with the program and read the value from each sensor, my FNS is stuck at 9, no matter what the actual height is. Very useful for diagnostics.
Waiting for a new sensor . . .
I can recommend the software. Good luck.
Hi Benji, thanks for your reply, any advice is more than welcome. Its just nice to know i'm not alone if nothing else! I believe the independent tried replacement relays when they had it as well as the ECU. I have previously re-soldered the relays too. I know the earth is good on the transmission tunnel and the c clamp on the ecu. Its interesting you note the valve driver as up until I changed the loom, I never knew it was there! Mine doesn't look the greatest and has cracked as you described so this could be a potential culprit.benji said:I can fully sympathise with you there!
Have you tried another valve driver? Ocasionally the backing resin cracks, and water can get in creating random caos.
Have you also tried a substitute delay relay, mine was sporatic (apart from other faults) in operation and creating softfaults.
I'm also wondering if the ecu casing is earthed via it's rear c clamp.
It may be worth opening up the valve block and pump to make sure all is okay. I once had a dislodged o-ring on a non-return valve that caused the pump to cycle every 30 seconds or so.
I have also had troubles with the ecu earthin points on the centre tunnel under the seat, they looked okay but they were'nt.
Has the car logged a fault whilst it's been turned off, or has it only been whilst you are driving.
I also recomend the software, it's worth it's weight in gold!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And lastly don't give up! As de-knackering an eas model really is quite sad.
