Re: Problems fitting courtesy light switches

Ok so we have had a look into this and we could definitely do better on these switches - the current ones are a bit more interference fit than optimal! The ones on our own E-type look like they have taken some effort to install. We do some of the assembly of these in-house, but the components are bo...

Re: Problems fitting courtesy light switches

I know how frustrated customers get with the "its never happened before" response so i will find the culprit in this case! In fairness to our team we have had zero returns on these in 2018 or 2019 and we sell hundreds, but that doesnt mean its not worth investigating. I will ensure my team look into...

Re: New locking boot cable hasn’t lasted a day! Now unable to open boot

Hi John, I have sent a message to our head technician to see if he knows a trick here to get the boot open and will come back to you tonight if we do. Maybe someone on here will come back to you before then. Either way, we will give you a bell in the morning to get the cable back and work our what’s...

Re: Anyone started to use their e-types yet?

Took my eldest daughter out for a picnic and to watch the sunset last night in ours - the view wasnt bad...not a cyclist in sight.

Re: Fuel filter (Glass Bowl)

Hi Steve, As requested, i have spoken to our head technician and this is our take on these filters: We (and Jaguar) offer the element filter as a replacement to the original cleanable gauze filter. With an original gauze fitted (7299), the fuel from the tank enters the bowl and is filtered –ish by t...

Re: Fuel gauge sender gasket leak

Agree with the original comment that the description on the difference between the cork and rubber gasket via our website is no good/non existent! I will ensure this is updated. We are working on a large program of improving the descriptions of the parts so you should start to see some improvements ...

Re: Where to buy a "Bonnet Hardware Kit"

We have done a bit of research into this subject and can advise what we think on the washer thickness. We think an original spacer washer for E-type (Part number C10193) is circa 1.99mm thick. This measurement comes from a "barn find" type car that we use to measure original parts. The parts that we...
