Default Front bumper XJ6 1990

Just got into a collision with a car that ran a red light- then took off!

My 1990 XJ6 Vanden Plas survived with minor damage to the driver side bumper. Now looking for parts to fix it up. What do I need?

Hi Salawada,

Welcome to the Jaguar Forums. It's great to have you with us, but I'm sorry that it was a collision that prompted you to join.

From your photos, it looks as though it may be possible to bend the bumper components back into shape and position, but you'll definitely need a turn signal/direction indicator lamp.

You can find part diagrams and part numbers at jaguarclassicparts.com, the website of the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust. Here's an example:




You will find that many of these parts are No Longer Available (NLA) from Jaguar, so your best option may be to find good salvaged parts. If you can't find a good donor car at a salvage yard within driving distance, check eBay for sellers offering parts from a similar car and send them a message to ask if they have the parts you need.

Cheers,

Don

Hi: beyond Don B's keep and repair suggestion, you can also visit you local salvage yard. Most XJ40s that I have come across have had pretty good bumpers. The chrome and rubber are usually in good shape. I've never removed one but I hear tell it's not that difficult. I saw yours had headlamp washers which is kind of rare so you might have to settle for a standard bumper. You can also try car-part.com. Good luck.

Sorry to hear this happened, especially to such a lovely car. Looking around junkyards or searching Craigslist for somebody parting out a 40 is you best bet.

Thanks for the info. Why are the headlamp washers rare?

I say that because I don't see many in the salvage yards I visit. I believe the washers came with VDP models which were the most expensive models. I could be wrong as I often am.
