Check this link. It may be your only hope.

The "master cylinder" is indeed a very expensive replacement part. You can rebuild the unit, if you're handy, using this kit. ... or roll the dice on a used unit.

Hi guys (sorry for my english)
Im going to tell you my historyt. I hope someone can help
I live in mexico city, there are not too many range rovers here, even the new ones, we dont have mechanics that are really familiarized with the car.
So i tried to fix it with no success by buying brake abs accumulator, bleeding etc. SO i took the car to the "dealer" that was my last hope.
Right now i am thinking to make a trip to the us and try to find a used replacement of the master brake cylinder , but i am confused , i certainly dont know what piece is or how it looks like: is it the one that is under the brake liquid reservoir?? or is it located in the mechanism of the brake pedal????
can someone tell me???
this a resume
my abs pump aparently is ok.
abs accumulator new.
when i opened the bleeding niple at each tire i didnt get any fluid
there is blake fluid on the low pressure side of the abs pump, and the pump is pushing fluid too.
any ideas????
please help!!

Does atlantic british or someone else has this part for sale???
best regard from mexico

yes and yes, it's the same place. There's lots of pipes on it.

Did you use the workshop manual to do the bleeding? just opening the screws won't yield any fluid if you don't have a friend pushing on the pedal.

If you are unsure what the Brake Master Cylinder/Booster Unit looks like or where it is located I don't think you could have bleed the system correctly as there are Three Bleed Nipples on it as well as a Nipple at each Wheel/Brake Caliper.

The Link below to the Main Site may help.
