Ace pipes leaking

I have a 2007 range rover sport which needs the pipes replacing that run into the ace filter block. My question is can this be done without taking the body off? I've taken a picture which hopefully is clear.

Cheers mate! Called a garage and was quoted £1800 plus VAT as body needed taking off. 2nd garage said it didn't need taking off and was 5 hours work.

I have spent 5 hours trying to get the seized pipes out of the valve block before Shocked

Generally, I allow 8 hours for front pipes, as a worst case Thumbs Up MMP Land Rover - Land Rover + Range Rover Specialist

I'm just getting more releived at the fact it can be done with removing the body mate.

Taking the body off isn't a big issue. The vehicle is designed to have it done and doing it can make jobs easier and thus quicker. Also better access means a better job is more likely. Compared to the price of many LR parts these days, the cost of body on and off isn't that big. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

Censored Im fed up of body off jobs Rolling Eyes

8 of the Censored since September, another 2 imminently, and and a further 2 in Jan Big Cry

Anyway, I think book time is 5.5 hours to remove + refit the body. Allow an extra couple of hours to deal with the inevitable rusty/seized fixings. Not the end of the world Thumbs Up MMP Land Rover - Land Rover + Range Rover Specialist
