XJ40 front door handles

Postby katar83 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:02 pm

I'm not entirely sure whether they are difficult to get these days but a guy on another forum I use, is selling repair kits for broken front door handles

Stainless steel so will not fail again and its confirmed to be of good quality. A pic:

Original - Replacement

Cost is approx £45 and I can point in the right direction if someone wants one. This is to fit 90-94 models.

Its on a main polish Jaguar forum, if anyone is interested please PM me and I'll happily help/get you in a contact with the seller/help with payment/delivery :)
In case anyone wonders, delivery should take a week, I'm sure paypal would be fine.

Its good to see someone coming up with clever repair solutions, rather than just binning things when they break. We will need more people like this down the line, when most of the usable spares have dwindled away.
The early handles for 3.6/ 2.9 models are the most prone to breaking. He needs to figure out those now too!

Good to know, I'll ask him! I suspect if he did the later ones, he'll know how to do the early ones too, only problem might be that he'll need one as a model/template :)

Katar - Please do post up the link so that folk may investigate for themselves please?
This could be a valuable resource going forward and if, for whatever reason, circumstances conspire to keep you out of touch from the Forum here, that resource could be lost unnecessarily.

No worries I have asked the seller to register and introduce himself, he mentioned he'll try sometime this week :)
