    On the back of my "Caliper colour" thread, I'm very aware that the control valve block for the Dynamic Drive hydraulic set-up lives behind the offside wheel arch liner.

    I'm suspicious that after all the years it'll be cosily ensconced among a bed of road dirt and general crap, so want to investigate and clean it all out while I'm working on the wheels/calipers - assuming I get round to it soon :oops:.

    Does anyone have a write up "how to" with pics preferably, stored from the days of the 'Land I could refer to please?

    I had the rear wheel arch liner off when I did my xenon retrofit. I don't have any pics of the process though.

    It wasn't difficult to get to, jack up, wheel off and remove the clips holding the liner on, then pull the liner out. I imagine you then just need to clean up whatever dirt and grime you find :)

    I m sure a strong solution of G101 and some elbow grease will do the job fine John , just be careful around the Control Valve Block ,especially if using a pressure washer , then a coat of Chemical guys Bare Bones or a similar product of your choice to seal and that's you .:)

    I'm thinking a pointed stick might be needed first, Murray - then on to more 'conventional' methods afterwards........:D
