Vee,

The steering rack bushes shouldn't require any disturbance of the engine mounts or the need to move or support the engine. I did everything from below without touching engine or engine...

JayJagJay,

I have an outboard disc 94 convertible but I think the cage structure and diff access should be the same as your car.

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...

From memory, 2 of the bushes were quite easy and one slightly less accessible. I definitely didn't remove the rack completely or disconnect the steering pipes or either track rod. I know...

Innovative idea Japthug.

IMO, it's really not a problem to replace the rack bushes. I put poly bushes in mine 11 years ago at a cost of 23. I'm sure it only took me 2 hours in total and I didnt...

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:

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

I think the only difference on the earlier part will be the absence of cutouts for the valet switch. I have the earlier one and the fittings look the same. 60 + tax from Jaguar.

When did the speedo start "bouncing"? Is it a big bounce or small fluttering? It may well be your speedo but also the speedos are very sensitive to the air-gap at the sensor in the...
