Default Headlight washer jet missing

OK so I have just got myself an XJ6 SE and noticed that one of my headlight washer jets is missing. Part number C2C3373 - number 1 in the following diagram: http://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/at...em-jetwash-jpg

I can't see how it would have fallen into the bumper as I guess there is a hose attached and yes, there is still water coming out (quite a jet) when operated.

Any ideas? I gather these are no longer available parts direct from a Jaguar dealer. Anyone know where I can get one, even second hand would be fine.

I'm in Kent, UK.

Cheers,

Jim

Thanks,

I've emailed a request to both. The first one states they are no longer available, presumably that is new.

I'd be happy to find one from a salvage yard.

These things are not a good piece of engineering IMHO. I had one blow out in 2010, had the dealer put in another, only for this to blow out a few months later. Got another one put in under warranty, and it is still there on the car and working, (touch wood).

The thing that concerns me is I think this will be an MOT failure and I'm a bit stuffed if I can't actually find a replacement part.

All this for what amounts to what should be a 2.50 bit of plastic
