Question 2006 Sportwagon Rear Glass - Help

Hello all,
I am desperately trying to find replacement gas struts for the rear hatch lift glass for my X-type. I am needing the gas support lifters or struts that hold up the glass in the rear hatch (the ones with open ended/slotted ends, at least as far as I can see), NOT the actual lift supports for the hatch itself (which has ball or sockets on both ends). I am tired of the lift glass falling after I have leaned in the trunk area and almost killing me. I have tried for hours to find these parts (left & right struts) but no luck. I found a thread with people discussing installing these struts without destroying the headliner, but nothing about the parts themselves. If anyone could help me with part numbers or a link or anything I would be very grateful. Thanks, all.

Might not be much use to you over the pond but could be worth giving them a call.

Found it, search C2S37601 for the glass strut.
Other forum posts suggest that if glass and/or hatch struts are weak (apparently they work in tandem) the hatch part tends to drop sharply at inopportune times. Hatch strut is a different part # from the above. Here's one link to supplier, but there are others by googling part #.

Default Found them

Thank you so much all for the input. I found them and even though almost everybody was out of stock I managed to order two of them from autoreservejaguar.com an online retailer in the UK and even with overseas shipping I paid less then I would have if I bought them in the states. Again thanks.

love that website, they helped me out loads with my x-type, once they sent me a speaker which wasn't properly working so they just instantly responded to my email at 9 pm and sent me another one - no charge

I use Autoreserve all the time for X Type bits.
I did have a problem with an aircon compressor that they sold me but they refunded the money immediately and didn't even want the old one back.
Obviously I still had to pay to have the old one removed, the replacement fitted and another gas recharge but they were straight up front about it.
