Vee,

OB,

If I remember correctly, when you changed the sphere, didn't you use a similar, but not original one?

Is it possible that your replacement sphere used a slightly different type of thread...

Vee,

Just to clarify, all the bushes are mounted horizontally,. It's just that there are two bushes on one side (an upper and lower) and one on the other.

On late cars in the UK, they were...

OB,

Could you take the holder out of the boot light and use / amend that to fit? It's a similar festoon bulb on late cars, so I expect the same on earlier cars

OB,

I'm not sure from where you bought your belts. But they should have been able to identify everything fine from your VIN. Those number seem fine as you can see from the Jaguar website:

OB,

I'm very much enjoying the internal dialogue that has been going on in your head!

I have a degree of empathy for the view that cars only break down if you don't maintain them, or that if...

I think all companies will have access to both spectacles and flatbed. But bear in mind, most of their first-line response comprises of spectacles trucks. So, be VERY clear on the phone...

Hi OB,

I never used to have any breakdown cover as: 1. I couldn't afford it and 2. I always assumed that I could probably fix the problem at the roadside.

I suspect you're right on most, if not all, counts! But all of it would still be outweighed by the idea of owning what I still consider to be one of the most beautiful cars ever built. ...

As you say that the hood is operating correctly, then the problem doesn't lie with the handbrake switch. The problem must lie in the relays, window motors, wiring to the motors or...
