Lightbulb The 'Interchangeable Parts Thread'

After an excellent discovery by milosnikolic a while back about Inner and Outer Tie rods being the same as those of the VW Sharan & Ford Galaxy, a suggestion was put forward by Greendiver to have a seperate section for reference as parts become harder to find.

So this sticky is just for that If you know of any items that are interchangeable with other vehicles, post them up here and we can build up a good list.

Lets start where the idea began with:

The later 'BMW square box' type ultrasonic interior alarm sensor is the same as on BMW E38, E39 and E46 models - note that some of those have a wider box but the sensor inside is the same. I cannot be sure about the colour match of the box though.

Most wiring connectors I believe are the same as BMW items, which may be useful if you wish to source spares from a scrapyard etc.

Remember that a lot of Rover parts can also be replaced with Land Rover ones, stick an L at the end of the part number to see if there is an equivalent and usually cheaper LR part.

The Freelander TD4 slave cylinder is suitable for all 75/ZT engines, though the hydraulic pipes may have to be re-shaped or swapped as preferred.

A recent re-investigation into this indicates that the threaded stub on the alternative part must be reduced in length by a few mm to allow the joint to butt fully up against the inner piece. It's covered in the latter part of the milosnikolic thread.

I just fitted Inner rods....and they aren't the same...they fit, but to fit correctly(butted upto the stop)....around 3mm has to be sawn/ground off the shorter of the two threads...........

So dont expect these to fit exactly without this modification....(read to the last post in the link above)

Sorry TC, I didnt see your post above....

The front fog lights on the pre facelift ZT are the same as the jag X type up to 2005.

Sorry if this has been covered.
