Warning: Do not attempt to remove the pressure-regulating valve on models equipped with the Bendix УintegralФ ABS system. On these models, the task should be entrusted to a Peugeot dealer - see Section 23.

Note: On refitting, the valve must be adjusted using specialist test equipment. This task must be entrusted to Peugeot dealer.

Removal
1 Chock the front wheels, then jack up the rear of the vehicle and support securely on axle stands (see УJacking and Vehicle SupportФ).

Plug the open ends of the pipes and the valve to prevent dirt ingress and to reduce fluid spillage.
