Re: Water rail nightmare

I've been chatting to another owner who also replaced a water rail and in his car, a 93MY. On his car, the water rail was refitted WITHOUT gaskets, just silicone :o - apparently, because that's how it looked when he took it apart. Just silicone. Now in my case, my car (94MY) was also found to have ...

Re: L399GYP 1993 3.2S

A friendly comment for your safety: those springs are supposed to come out before you remove the sub-assembly. :shock: The dampers are presumably wedging the wishbones from extending further? This post provides a good explanation of the danger associated with removed XJ40 front crossmembers which h...

Re: New Exhaust !

I suspect these may need a bit of work to make them fit. The support bar on the rear of the back box looks to be welded in the wrong place?

Re: Oops.. no headlight washers on Daimler :-)

Mine work, but I'm not entirely convinced they make much of a difference.

Re: Rear bumper bolts

If no one has one available, they're still available from Jaguar - BCC8451 or BAC6543 at £2.53+VAT and post. I believe the late bumper mounts can corrode making the bolts difficult to remove, so I hope it doesn't fight you too much. https://www.jaguarclassicparts.com/uk/jaguar-xj6-xj12-parts/exterio...

Re: 1994 Daimler Double Six

I have always believed the passenger's airbag was introduced with the 1994 model year changes (the ones with the r...
