Ducato X230 Load Sensing Valve - Heads-up


Recommended Posts

My Ducato motorhome has dual brake circuits, so if you lose a wheel cylinder you still have some

50% brake function.


I haven't crawled underneath to trace the hydraulic lines, but the LSV seems a weak spot to me. As it mechanically proportions the brake pressure between front and back, then if it leaks all wheels lose brake function.


This is what happened to us last month, after fitting semi-air suspension. My local mechanic thinks the change in ride height after 15 years caused the seal to leak.
