    15yo car,champane motor for beer money?



    At a wild guess,two hours labour plus the parts cost....
    Bear in mind the buggeration factor that working on elderly cars can easily up the labour cost if the wheel is rusted to the hub and the hub is rusted to the driveshaft.....

    The best way would be to phone or write them an email to a Jaguar dealer and ask them how much they will charge you to replace it. They would have the time to this job from Jaguar and will be able to tell you the price of the part as well.

    If KwikFit do it for around £80 a better mechie should do it for £120 max, Thomas, if they use the same method and universal boot.

    But it could be one of the anti-roll bar gaiters if it's not clear. I'd guess max will be 2 hours plus part cost for any suspension job since they have all the tools handy and a lift or two.
