brake pressure limiting valve - stucks

Recommended Posts

Hi!

The rear brakes system includes a brake limiting valve in the engine bay.

I tried to bleed the new brakes. but nothing came out of the bleeds.

I checked the valve by opening the fittings: in yes, out nothing.

I opened the valve only to see that the piston stucks.

Any idea from what car this presure limiter is?

 

cheers!

Michael

Hi Michael,

If it is the same unit as mine I have recently refurbished one of these, details here  scroll down to the very bottom. 

They are easy to do and a new switch if you need, it can be bought from here   https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-AAU1700A

It may be that all it needs is taking apart and a good clean.   PM me if you need any more info

Is this the pressure-limiting device on an Excel or the differential pressure switch (as referenced by Simon) on the Elite?

So not like the picture of the Rimmer Bros item?  The Excel device sits on the inner wing IIRC - is that the one you mean?

bleeding can be a pain on an excel, especially when starting with an empty circuit after replacing a master.

I tried and tried and couldnt get mine to pressurise. I finally got some fluid to drop into the cylinder by pressure beleeding. It didnt want to start with just gravity alone.

Thanks for all the replies.

it is not that Rimmer´s device. The rimmer´s device compares the pressure in the circuits. If pressure is different, a warning light is engaged.

I was looking for that pressure limiting device for the rear circuit.

At least I swapped the original by a simple device.
it  is from Ford Mondeo with 3/40
