This is what Jaguar classic parts answer on my request for a part, or help:

""Hello Sir,

Thank you for your recent parts enquiry. Unfortunately, this product is no longer available and hasn't been produced by Jaguar for some time. I feel the only possibility is to search for a good second hand or reproduction item. You would need to search either in the Specialist Classic Magazines the internet or the aftermarket specialists.

I am sorry I cannot be of more help in this instance but hope the information provided is to your satisfaction.

Best Regards""

I replied the following:

""Hello Sir,

To be honest its not to my satisfaction.
All the used parts available are very old and not worth to install. And there are no reproduction items on the market.
Is there any chance that this part will be remanufactured in the future?

Because it is made mostly from rubber, I guess there will be some demand in the future.

Could you please tell me if the same part was used by other manufacturers?
Maybe they will still have it in stock.

What is most unsatisfying for me is that I spend very much money in the car and its still not perfect , because I have heavy vibration from the propshaft.""

And now the answer from Jaguar Classic Parts.
I really like that they at least respond to my demand.

""Dear Sir,

I can appreciate your frustration. There are many parts that I would like to have put back into production and this is part of my job role. I have noted the part that you requested and this is the second time this year that this part has been requested. I also want there to be all of Jaguars Classic cars on the road and am doing everything that I can to ensure this.

I know that this is not immediately a satisfying response, but I do hope to have this part back into production at some point next year.

Kind regards""

Yes, that will be james Dobson. He has been good at getting back to us. Though ultimately they never actually put firm delivery dates for new stock, which is what we actually need to know.
Still good communication is a start and shows they are listening.

Hopefully in the up coming months, new stock will start to appear.
In the meantime- ask Volvo!

I guess we need the correct measurements.


If you were to contact jaguar classic parts with an enquiry regarding this bearing they may possibly have the original drawings and measurements for this part , i enquired about the possibility of a rear silencer from another model and whether it would fit , they emailed me the two original specification drawings so i could compare the two for myself ,

EBC9040 is not the same as JLM1989.

EBC9040 is for the newer cars, and as all experts told me will not fit in a car before 1992.
