It's easy enough to do but the trouble is getting the preload shims as Jag dealers only sell them in packs of 10 of one size and they are about £5 each . I manange to work out what I needed and got hold of a local Jag reapir specialist and bought 3 different sizes at £5 a piece. I ended up linishing one down to the required size.

I'll have a look in a minute to see if thereis anything on the 'net about how to overhaul them .

EDIT , here ya go, first one I found

Just slop in the bearing and it sliding up and down the shaft ( probably). I did a set about 8 months ago that had been in use for about 6 months and they were fine.

Chances of it 'just ' going back together are slim, all about production tolerances. If they weren't needed they wouldn't make them would they ? ;)
