    Daimler Super V8 rear heated seat switches

    Hi to all and as always sincere gratitude for any/all advice and help received.
    Some of the switches including the ones for the heated elements in the switchpack for the rear electric seats in my 1997 Super V8 do not work.
    As they are no longer available from Jaguar does anyone know of any company or specialist that can repair the switches or of anywhere that I can locate a second hand switchpack please ?
    Kindest Regards

    If you are positive the switches are defective you could try euro car parts, David manners or SG Barrett.

    Hi Jim,
    No joy with suppliers unfortunately but I have managed to find a company which may be able to repair/replace the pcb boards in the switches. I will keep you posted. If they can help I will post details on this thread as I suspect they would be of interest to many other owners.
    Kindest Regards

    Hi Jim,
    The company I contacted can repair or replace the switches whichever I prefer thankfully. I will wait until they have done this and given me a cost before I recommend them as I don't want to send anyone on a wild goose chase. Excellent news for owners of older cars as the switches are bound to go with time. Keep you posted.
    Kindest Regards

    Hi Jim,
    Got the switches back and they are great . The guys at Nova Electronics did a great job of replacing the switches with more reliable ones and even sourced new illumination bulbs and led,s . As I have more to be done they sent the two initial repaired units for me to test and will just charge me when all the switches have been refurbed. Great service from a great company. They can repair or refurb most switches and pcb boards.

    Kindest Regards
    Joe
