Front road springs

Post by Bluevan » Fri Jun 21, 2019 7:48 pm

Does anyone know of a u.k. supplier that would have standard front springs for an xe sport model 2016

My drivers side road spring is broken and I need to replace front 2 before Mot.

You could try online breakers who will more than likely help or Rimmer Bros for new.

Hi Vespa
Thanks for the info. I will phone Rimmer bros. today.
The only company that seems to stock them is based in Berlin and has mixed reviews.

I am trying to finish a 2 year rebuild of a 1966 Morris Minor 1000 when I would rather be driving steam engines at Boness.

I wonder if Demon Tweekes in Wrexham may be able to help? My photo is at Fort William. :D

Hi Vespa

I got prices from British parts uk. and Rimmer, but if you get the colour code wrong they will not take them back.

I have the list of spring band colours if anyone needs them.

I settled on spring kits from Glasgow main dealer and also got a small discount and the ability to take them back if incorrect also cheaper than non Jag.

Replacing them was the same as most cars, but please ensure you use strong spring compressor as they are tough old brutes.

Any information about the XE is always useful to somebody on here so if you have that spring info I am sure someone will find it useful. Please put the list on and I for one will file it in my other info.

Colour chart for Jaguar XE road springs.

Front, yellow / purple / yellow
front, yellow / purple / orange
front, yellow / purple / red
front, yellow / purple / pink = my 180 r/sport
front, yellow / purple / purple
orange / green / yellow
orange / orange / orange
orange / yellow / white

I found that the yellow almost looked green to me and you may need to use a mirror to see the colours at the back of spring.
