Floor Pan Holes

Postby RichardSEL » Mon Nov 26, 2018 4:47 pm

Here are pix of my recently installed new floor pans together with new cross members into my XJ6 series 1 '72MY

What are the holes for?

Are there any grommets needing to be fitted there? I didn't see any on removal but the floor pan was so rotten that the shop just cut and threw away the old

I asked Manners but they didn't seem to know...

Spoke with another helpful soul at DMG who ferreted around and found the correct part (not yet seen though)

They are "Sealing Plug" 338023J at .79p each for the real Jaguar ones. Or .50p each for pattern part
+VAT +delivery = A full set appears to be 22 pcs

Have you not experienced pattern door seals? Got to let the water out somehow! :D Mike.

XJ6? Rust? "Nah, it's just a bit of surface corrosion that's all. You don't want to worry about that." :roll:
