I don't no what to replace it with , I was hoping u would have some suggestion. I don't think u can buy asbestos
Mike
Thanks again

Answer
That may be difficult to find the asbestos as it has been outlawed for many things. The only thing I can think of it to try all the online Jag parts suppliers. I have done a lot of dealings with Engel Imports and Moss Motors. I doubt they will have the asbestos alone but they may have the heat shield with the asbestos attached. They both have toll free numbers on their web sites.
