Re: JLM11253 NLA -waht to do?

As per your other topic, I assume your system is the old hydraulic unit, replace it all with a reliable system from later models, much easier, maintenance wise that way, cost will be similar to fully sorting your old system but will last much longer with better performance.

Re: Daimler XJ40 4.0

I'm sure it can be fixed but since yours an early car I'd ditch the hydraulic stuffs since its now failing and replace it with a bit more modern system from here:

Re: 94 Sovereign 4.0 Auto

You can replace just the bulb and I can highly recommend a red led for this, looks much better than the green one.

Re wishbone bushes, easiest way to remove them is to cut them flush with the wishbone both sides, then it easily comes out, even if it's 30 years old, never replaced and super rusty.
