#1 Need help in finding some parts for the S3 dashboard / knobs

Post by disaster123 » Tue Mar 27, 2018 7:52 am

Hello,

i'm unable to find some parts for my dashboard and i hope somebody can help me where to find them or how to call them ;-) maybe i'm just searching with the wrong words.

I'm searching to the following parts for my S3 2+2 1971:
- choke knob / puller
- labeled ring behind air conditioning and temperatue knob
- kangol reflex seat belts

Thanks!

Greets,
Stefan

Stefan,

SNG has the "labelled rings" behind the AC knobs. Almost $35 each :wow:
They also have seatbelts, but not the original brand with the seatbelt warning switch.
Don't know about the choke "puller knob".

Cheers ........ Ole

Long shot, and could be....could be....might be...pricey !!!! , but why not contact the Jaguar factory ! After all, they are now doing repair, and complete restorations. They might help you with the part, or turn you on to the vendor that supplies them. Good luck !

I have the knob & seat belts, for sale or swap.
The choke knob is on my car and in use, however planned mods will make it redundant …
The Kangol seat belts, one is original, the other was new old stock for a Mini, that I purchased and installed the etype belt into. Didn’t get past rego check, faded seat belts are prohibited. So now they’re sitting in a box waiting for me to fit new belts into. I also have the seat belt warning light, sensors and wiring complete, including the passenger seat pressure sensor.
Will swap for right side seat covers, back and base, colour = biscuit, no cracks or tears. Alternatively, for an insane price plus postage I could sell to you instead, PM if yr interested and I’ll send yr some pics.
Regards,

Hi Stefan - the choke knob (with decal) seems to be still available from SC Parts/Limora (pricy), but suggest you also call SNG Barratt. You'll probably need to drill out the rivets securing the operating lever on the dashboard sideand fit (small screws) the new knob to that, then rivet the lever back on. If you're double-jointed, you may be able to do it without lever removal (in which case please post photos!)
I recently replaced my Kangol seat belts (the pendulum type, fitted into the body recess adjacent to B-post). I provided the description and dimensions to FDTS Limited (www.fdts-seatbelts.co.uk/) based on the descriptions which are well set out on their website. Sue of FDTS was very helpful (Email: Susan Taylor <sue@fdts-seatbelts.co.uk>). It seems that the pendulum type is no longer be available (?)- I purchased the inertia type in the interests of safety rather than originality given that I had little faith in 46 year old webbing.
I'm sure you'll find the aircon part at one of the usual suppliers.
Hope that helps
Chris
