Rear control arm help!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I've finally got myself a x-type!

Already having problems though 😭 the n/s/r arm that goes from next to jacking point back to everything else has snapped! Are the estate awd and the saloon awd the same or Not? Plus is this a normal fault with these and where's the best place to get one? 

Cheers Ian

Ian,

Sorry for late response, you've probably got this sorted now. Hadn't seen your post before today... Apologies, anyway for what its worth...

Snapped!!! I'm not even going to ask how, that's a solid effort, well done!!

So, new they're horrifically priced (EPC shows £1800) best option would probably be to go for a 2nd hand one... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HUB-CARRIER-REAR-LEFT-SUSPENSION-ARM-Jaguar-X-Type-2-5-3-0-2001-2007/401247818134?epid=1115898681&hash=item5d6c3bd196:g:ZA0AAOSwq1NZgzG2

also budget for replacement of the bushes... seems silly to fit a 2nd hand arm and not renew the bushes... Jag numbers C2S14739 and C2S14740. Genuine Jag prices are around £20, per bush. puts your total parts spend around £150. if you're fitting yourself... great! if your paying someone... I'd hazard a guess at between £150-200. I've not paid a garage ever for mechanical work, i spend too much money on my tools to pay someone else to do it for me ;) anyone who knows what they're doing should be able to do this in under 2 hours.

EPC also makes no mention of saloon or estate but does differentiate between FWD and AWD (because the hole in the hub may be different diameter due to drive shafts on AWD)... there is only diffentiation between chassis numbers, but only one part number valid for order... C2S20029
