Though I have managed to fix the bodged up broken headlamp washer J connector, I'm still after a new part as I suspect that over time the pressure will result in the repair again failing.
As to be expected the part no DBC12082 is NLA on the Jaguar spares site. A search on Ebay threw up an NOS one in the USA, but at a starting bid price of US$50, with postage quoted at almost US$70, I'm passing.
Back to Jaguar classic spares and looking at the X300 catalogue shows a very similar looking connector with the part number LJA7071AA at a far more reasonable $33 AUD.
So would this part be interchangeable or is there something different about it (different hose diamenter ??) which is why it's is not listed for the XJ40.
