In our workshops today we have our 2009 Jaguar XF. Unfortunately whilst in for the routine MOT and service elsewhere it was discovered that the rear sub frame had substantial corrosion which needed to be addressed.
Having sourced a used replacement unit our intentions, originally, were to rebuild the new purchase as a direct replacement for the existing.
Unfortunately, upon arrival, we noticed two key bushes missing. We wrongly assumed these were available from Jaguar themselves but they informed us that the bushes in question are fitted in the factory from new which therefore deemed our purchase to be of no use.
A brand new replacement sub frame was then supplied from Jaguar and the car could once again be pieced together.
