    Default Torque Wrench

    My friend has bought a car - barely roadworthy and intends to fix it.

    One missing piece of the puzzle is the wrench
    Any ideas where to buy one in this country?

    LOts of parts shipped in already... but forgot the wrench....typical

    Also... a windshield - 2001 Jaguar S Type... auto dim feature - no rain sensor or heating function

    THe part search is a challenge -- to say the least
    not just here--- USA too

    The Good News???
    It truly appears to have only 40,000 miles on it...I mean spotless inside .. door sills etc
    I actually believe the mileage.

    But Jesus - the car is old enough to vote !!!

    And flies low.... very little clearance...especially until the new ssuspension system gets installed

    Which is why he needs the torque wrench


    Any help will be appreciated

    Ochoa in Santiago is a good bet. They have some good quality hand tools.

    Windshield could be a tricky one. Can't even find one on eBay.

    Your friend likes a challenge! Those S types were pretty mediocre at best. Very unloved in the UK. They sell for hundreds of pounds now Unless it's a Type R with the supercharged V8.

    I had a 2005, 2.7 diesel for two years and loved it.

    Order a torque wrench off Amazon or eBay they are not expensive and it could be here in 6 days. Way faster than he will get a windshield.
    Reminds me of my old 441 Victor.
    Loved it but couldn't find parts nor anyone that could work on it.
    I'm trying to locate a ABS control module for an O6 Grand Vitara 4x4 and Automatic.
    William - you had one, any ideas?

    I have two new Torque wrenches, both of them are in Sosua at the Self Storage unit that my friend owns. If you have no luck finding one, let me know. They cost $40 each.

    you need to know what kind of torque numbers you are going to be applying to the bolts. torque wrenches come in various sizes. there are quarter inch, three eights, half inch torque wrenches. if you only need to torque small pressures, a quarter inch is fine. you might need bigger, depending on the application.
