That would be the servo valve at the base of the steering axle.

Hmm! Well they are easier to do than the servo valve.

To get at the tops of the shocks, you need to remove the sound insulation from either side (one is behind the wiper motor, on an RHD car you may need to remove the whole assembly to get proper access), and remove the covers fitted behind there.

Not really, I'm afraid. I haven't done the servo valve on a JE Espace myself, but I think you may find some help in one of the documents here:

Good luck!
