Default Need help finding trunk parts

I just purchased a beautiful 2007 XK Convertible and all is well mechanically. The only items it needs to be complete are the slotted louvers located on both sides of the trunk. They are missing. Rather than go to the dealer I was hoping someone could steer me in the direction of a source for parts. If you can then thanks in advance. I added a pic of the grill. It's on the far right.

Go to a breaker such as Pacific Motors in the Detroit area. Also look at vendor members some give discounts on parts.

I have never understood the attitude prevalent across Jaguar Forums of NOT going to the Dealer. The first thing I do for parts is to get the Dealer cost. Without knowing this it is impossible to assess comparative values from alternative sources.

The list on the vent C2P4542 is $49.50.

Jaguar Virgina Beach for example discount this by 9%. Several other US Dealers appear to offer similar discounts.



Our forum Sponsor, S N G Barratt offers a better price:




Alternatively, you could avoid Jaguar Dealers or aftermarket Jaguar parts specialists by going on eBay:

I can speak for my own reasons - I needed a side marker light for my XK. I want to support local business, so I called my Jag dealer which is literally 2 miles from my house. I got the price, and they had to order it for me. So I agreed. Immediately afterwards I shopped around and found the exact same part from a Jag dealer in Atlanta for half the price, delivered. I called up my dealer and canceled the order.
I don't mind paying little extra to support a local business, but I am not paying double.

I do the same with the local aquarium store (I keep salt water fish hence my name 110reef) - I will do business with them rather than the internet because of the relationship, and to help keep them in business. Plus I get to see what I am buying in person, which is important to me since I am buying livestock.

As far as cars are concerned, though, I generally will try my best to not darken the dealer's door if I can avoid it.

Call one of the places in this thread:

Seriously, look around for salvage yards online. There may be a wrecked XK near you. I bought an I-pod electronic module (forgot the proper term) from a salvage yard with the help of a local forum member. Might not be worth it for a $45 part but I saved about $300 from the dealer price.
