Re: How to adjust tex door mirrors???

I had the same problem with a floppy mirror!.........it was the swivel socket ball that was too loose. I solved it by carefully smearing Araldite epoxy glue around the visible parts of the ball and then using a hairdryer to make the glue more runny so that it seeps into the hidden bits. You'd think ...

Re: Late series 2 air filter.

Hi Phil,
I converted my 2+2 to right hand drive and made the mistake of ordering K&N filters that didn't fit!
I ended up with fitting Ram-flo by Lynx filters to my Stromberg's..........look very smart as well.
Will try to download a photo if you want to see how they look?

Re: "Torpedo" armrests/door pulls????!!!

Thanks for picking up about the screw to retain the door card. I have checked on the exploded diagrams of some suppliers to see where exactly the self-tapping screw should be located and it is in the centre of the handle trim on the corner where it turns downwards at 90 degrees. SC Parts show this a...

Re: "Torpedo" armrests/door pulls????!!!

Hi Joe, No, despite my car being a fairly late Series 2 it wasn't, as far as I am aware, fitted with armrests. It's just that to close the door you have to either pull the door handle or pull on the door handle recess........both not ideal as the handle is not designed for that purpose and secondly,...

Re: "Torpedo" armrests/door pulls????!!!

Hi Bob, Yes, I was aware that the armrests to other Jaguar models..........I thought the Mk10 and 420G.....were meant to fit but I have my suspicions that although they look very similar the mounting hole centres may well vary. This is mainly because I enquired about a pair that were going on eBay, ...

Thanks Steve and sorry about that............thought the Post might be more relevant to the 'Series 2' section rather than the 'Wanted' section.
Emailed John Skinner last October but received no reply. Have just emailed him again but will probably phone him next week anyway

"Torpedo" armrests/door pulls????!!!

Still urgently seeking a pair of "torpedo" armrests/door pulls............ie. with 166mm fixing bolt centres..........they appear to be like gold dust!
If anyone has a pair they want to sell, or know of a supplier who stocks them, then please let me know.

Re: Body door & window seals

Hi Bill, No, it is not the complete seal kit. It's generally everything for the doors/windows, quarterlights, sills, bumpers and bonnet seal. It excludes the windscreen, rear door and window. I suspect I WILL end up with a "door slammer" as I wasn't going to argue with the price............and, basi...

Re: Body door & window seals

Thanks Steve. Order placed today for all the seals with SC Parts, (did I hear an audible gulp from some members!?) Well, true they have had mixed reviews and have always tended to be a bit pricey but, for this month only, they are matching (or bettering in my case!) any price from their competitors,...

Re: Body door & window seals

I am in the process of compiling a list of all my damaged and missing seals but an anomaly has cropped up. The Upper 'B' post seal & quarterlight hinge seal is listed by suppliers for the FHC but generally not for the 2+2. Martin Robey originally listed this seal as R10 in their old catalogue but I ...

Body door & window seals

I am needing to replace all the perished rubber door and window seals on my 2+2 (inc. bumper seals & Furflex window seals). The quarterlight seals are missing altogether so I am at a loss as to what section rubber these are. The easiest option might well be to go for a complete kit from someone such...

Re: Long cant rail fitting problems

Back on the job again.............so thanks Steve for your advice. Decided to tackle the passenger-side cant rail instead. The quarterlight shims and packers were missing, which didn't help, so I knocked some up. There were very few holes to line up the cant rail as it was held in place by only 4 sc...

Re: Long cant rail fitting problems

Thanks Steve. Here's some photo's, as requested, to see if it might shed some light on the problem! At present the cant rail is held in place by the quarterlight catch at the rear, a loosely tightened G-cramp over the door (in the middle) and one screw at the front, about 150mm from the bottom.

Long cant rail fitting problems

Having real problems refitting the long cant rail trim over the door and quarterlight on my 2+2. I took them off ok and re-covered them (with slightly thicker vinyl!), but when I try to refit them they seem to have grown in length! Have already trimmed about 3mm off the quarterlight catch end, which...
