    Rear Brake Caliper Damper.

    During a failed attempt to change the rear pads (Don't worry folks. I know where I went wrong). I noticed that the vibration dampers had seen better days and could use replacing. However. I can't find anywhere that sells them. Would I be correct in saying that the dampers are a deleted part?

    If you're talking about the sprung clips which secure the pads (x4 per caliper) I've seen them on ebay?

    I'm not sure if I can post links on here? But, if you search for:

    Jaguar X-Type 2004-2009 Rear brake pad fitting kit anti-rattle shims PFK1066Y

    you should find them? Or, are you talking about the slider pins? (also available on the same site)

    Apologies if you're talking about something completely different!

    No it's not shims or anything. It's a round piece of metal that's covered in rubber. It's about 3" in diameter and about 1" in width. It also acts as the lower caliper bolt on the rear brake.

    IIRC they were only on the first models. They were removed about 2004?
    Not sure if they actually do much.

    This picture should show it. Top right.

    Yup. That's the part. So it looks like the damper is a deleted part then. No worries.
