Thank you for posting that picture. I don't have any spares to compare against without pulling apart another door. The latch part of the mechanism does look like the problem, but it's not held that way by pressure and works well when turned with the handle. I guess it shifted out of place...
When I use the push button, the latch sticks and won't engage. While ripping the guts apart and letting the door flop closed has worked fine for many years, I'd kind of like it to work again. Now that I've taken the mechanism out of the door I can see what's wrong with it, but i don't know how...
That Jaguar's an S-type, not a 240. My family has a white one with blue leather, it's a beautiful car, but it is very much a cat. It got driven out of its garage for a few days, decided it didn't like being ignored, and lost compression in all six cylinders at once. Hasn't run since.

A good-looking car, but I wonder how much weight that luggage rack could hold before the trunk lid was damaged. It also has nonstandard side strips, which is a shame.

The ad has a lot of nice pictures to look at. The car is very pretty, but I'm not a fan of the lighter compromise badges. Is the large GB badge a factory feature?
I knew the NADA 3500S had reflectors, but I had no idea 2000TC's got them too. I was assuming they were a custom addition by the owner. Are they always orange at the back corners with none at the front?
