If i'm not mistaken it is also the same plastic screw that is on top of the middle (near windscreen) engine cover.

Did you ever get a chance to fit the parts back into the roof.

Originally I asked about part 9, but I meant part 3. I'm keen to know how it's supposed to attach to the whole kit......

If you've effected the repair can you let me know how it all went together.

Thanks

It's glued.

Mine was glued w/ what had congealed to a gel like consistency, I'm sure a decade + of heat has changed it from it's original state.

Anyone have any ideas on how to secure these things, mine drops every 2-3 weeks, it's beyond annoying now. I've ensured all tangs are inserted as well as the screw being tight yet it always falls. I've even had others like my audio guys install it, with the same result. It's a really a curious design to say the least.

If the "teeth" on the plastic turn-stud are good, you probably need to replace the part #6 on the diagram (BBC9868) but this seems NLA. You can try with KRF100001, "stud retainer" (the socket for the plastic stud holding the middle plastic cover in the engine compartment) or KRF100002 ("cam plate") which is for the plastic stud retaining the carpeted vertical floor panels at the back of the rear footwell.

If you cannot get these Jaguar parts, try with Volvo - I know that Volvo 240 uses a number of these studs and sockets at the bottom of the door panels.

This turn-stud retainer is from a BMW (E30, I think) or maybe Volvo 240.

It gives away @ the front end w/ the clips more so than the back.

Having only very limited experience with other areas of the forum, I have to say that the X308 guys are the best.

Always a helpful response, and full of ideas to make things easier, add to that the experiences and pitfalls to watch out for, what more could we ask? This is my first cat, an engine and gearbox replacement that simply wouldn't have happened without the help.

Wish there were more UK guys on here though!

I have a feeling this plastic "screw" fell into the glasses holder lid. In my experience you must press the console up tightly to the headliner THEN install the screw. I added the Vanden Plas wood grain veneer to mine. It simply peeled away from the donor wreck. I then applied 3M emblem cement to it to hold it to my console. Regarding LED's not working, they are polarity sensitive IE can be installed backwards !
