    rear sunblinds retro fit

    I have got a set of the rear sun blinds for my XJR and I have just been out to start to fit them but... There are 3 hooks that go a round the window frame and these are screwed into place but all I seem to have are taped over holes in the window frame with nothing for the screw to screw into. Any ideas what should be there as I don't see anything in the parts manual. Although that could just be because that part is hidden in a random place you would never consider looking in. I will have another look tomorrow when it is less dark and wet. Thanks

    Just a guess.

    But are they the type of hole that a plastic fixing goes in the then allows the screw to bite/screw into.

    A pic of what you have and need to attach in the area might help.

    If you've bought the proper Jaguar assembly, it doesn't have any window hooks - the sunscreen rises out of a slot in the rear parcel shelf.

    Yes there are hooks which screw into the frame, you need the plastic inserts.
    I did this retrofit many years ago. You will need some rivnuts installing too.

    I wish I could source a set of these...
    Maybe save yourself the hassle and sell them to me??

    Yep, that’s the way of it, that’s how I got my rear electric blind, but would love the door ones instead of the adamesh ones I have at the mo.

    Bugger just deleted my reply by pressing the wrong button!. Any way thanks for the part number. I have ordered some that I think will fit but if they don't I can get the proper parts. Oh I see the black window trim is still available. Mine are in a horrible state but to buy all 4 would be close to £400!
