I'm pretty sure Naki has one of these? Or at least a prop shaft he might take one off????

I would prefer a new part.
How is it possible that Jaguar doesnt produce them any more? Its a normal replacement part.

its becoming unfortunately all too common for many xj40 parts. fair enough if you want new, but you will struggle to get one right now, unless you can find a new/old stock

you best bet is to email, and say you are from this forum!
Jaguar Classic Parts <parts@jaguarclassicparts.com>
we are having regular communication with JCP to request parts that members need. from these request they can build up an idea of what the demand is, and hopefully decide to remanufacture these parts.

there is also a section on the forum dedicated to JCP, where you can request a part, but that way is a little slower.
best to email them directly

also, this rings a bell. "i think" this maybe the same as a volvo part.
see here. another avenue you may be able to investigate?

I think you may find that these bearings are fitted to a wide range of cars?? I'm going to collect two recon'd half shafts for a Lotus Cortina next week. I'll ask the guy there if I am correct. His business is all about reconditioning drive line parts so he WILL know!! :geek:

The Volvo part does not look right.

But I agree with you the doormouse. These parts are not only made for Jaguar.
Maybe your driveline expert has an advice for us.

if you can get your old one off, and take it to a place that sells the volvo part, to be able to compare the two parts.
