I don't think they're still available from Jaguar (maybe they are?) but fortunately the much cheaper GM part #25676065 which was fitted to the Cadillac Seville and Deville models from 1998-2003 is still available. It's a direct replacement, apparently same pressure rating, thread, physical size etc.
You may have to source this from the States - they run about $90 (£70) so even with shipping, it's not a bad deal.
Good luck with it

as this would cause your problems as well

The modulator runs a test when the ignition is switched on which is audible if you listen near it and the ecu is in the boot behind the trim on the LHS - worth a check of the connector and relay seating.
