update ,

brand new heated headlight washers and new screws obtained from Jaguar and brand new washer caps along with the the correct hose ( still looks like garden hose, lol ) and a brand new headlight washer pump and bottle seal ,
interestingly , the pump is modified as the original had a ' bleed pipe ' back to the washer bottle, the replacement pump does not have this bleed pipe , but instructions on how to modify and a blank for the redundant pipe,

should be plug and play from now on


btw, these parts were bought from jaguar, and were cheaper than ebay....go figure...

I can only suggest painting the other side of that chrome bumper blade, that crappy Jag primer wont last a winter :roll:
