Over the years of maintaining and owning DB7s, I’ve built up a knowledge and catalogue of original parts at OEM prices, and re-manufactured parts where they are no longer available from AML (Aston Martin Lagonda) or their original suppliers (e.g. Ford, Jaguar, Mazda, et al.) Here are some examples:
DB7 Rear Outer Hand-brake Cable
Includes the heat sleeving (which is not included in OEM’s cable), Left and right cables are the same [30-84493]. Half AML’s price, and every bit as sturdy.
DB7 Window Control ECU
New, complete kit with instructions. Can be used on Mk1, Mk2, & Mk3 window instalations [AML 37.81867, 37.111361AA, 76.111926.AA] irrespective of whether the ECU or the motor sensing has a fault. Works slightly differently but even faster! Made from bare PCBs in the UK. .
Good second-hand Mk2 and Mk3 ECUs are also often available.
DB7 Vantage Brake Light Switch
Exchange service, Rebuilt with new heavy duty micro swiches [37-85792].
No longer available from AML.
DB7 i6 Power Steering Pump
Fully rebuilt assembly, available on service exchange basis. A surcharge of £120 to be added & refunded when servicable old unit is returned. .
This pump is not available from AML as a complete assembly. It is made of parts 24.81731, 24.81027 and 24.81731, thus providing a pre-assembled ‘bolt-on’ part.
Header/Expansion Tank DB7 i6
Made with love in alloy, complete with level sensor
Throttle Cable for Air Bag RHD DB7
All metal construction, no plastic. [AML original part No 14.90182] Remade as no longer available
Etched “Aston Martin” Rear Chrome Panel
Made in Holland, the chrome panel on the boot/trunk lid, above the rear number plate, is etched with “Aston Martin” – and looks like it should have been there from the beginning. Obtainable new or exchange basis for all variants of DB7 (except USA spec.)
Front Disc Brake Upgrade Kit (i6)
Disc diameter increased to 305 mm and better profile. Callipers are ALLOY, thus massive weight saving! Kit comes complete with pads and Stainless Steel braided flexible lines (not available for original set up). If original callipers are seizing and discs rusty/scored this is definitely the way to go and replace with kit from the 21st century – not 1975! See here for prices and further info
Instrument cluster dimmer switch
with knob £25, without knob £20.
New, easy to desolder wires from old dimmer and resolder to new, with original plug. No longer available from AML or Jaguar [p/n 37.84389, LJA6500AB]
Evaporator temp sensor/probe
Specially made in the UK. Sturdier than the originals, fits positively right into the evaporator to read temperature sensitively and stops compressor from running-on too long and freezing evaporator into a big lump of ice! Might seem expensive but a third of AML price and no longer available from Jaguar [89.83652, JLM748]. Individually hand built
BONNET SWITCH BOOT/GAITOR
£6 [ ALL SOLD ]
This fits all airbag DB7s (i.e. 6 cyl and Vantage), plus Vanquish too. Normally the switch itself continues to work, but the rubber boot disintegrates and looks horrid. Not an easy fit, but DIY possible.
VANTAGE COOLANT EXPANSION TANK
This is a new, custom made, all alloy tank, [AML part 32.86358} complete with new level probe and conventional type filler/pressure cap. We made several and all have increased clearance in the area of the left hand throttle butterfly. Very nicely put together yet cheaper than from AML.
HEADLAMP REAR ACCESS PANELS
Remanufactured as no longer available from AML, these will fit either side and come complete with clips and foam, ready to install. [Original p/n 88.83632rh, 88.83633lh or last p/n 88.86528]
Clutch kit for DB7 i6. Complete kit, new flywheel, pressure plate, driven plate, release bearing and specially made carrier, plus bolts.
SEAT MECHANISM SIDE COVERS
Seat mechanism side covers, left and right hand. [P/N 74.83169 and 74.83168]. Fits all pre air bag DB7s AND air bag DB7s upto MY97.5. No longer available from Aston Martin or Jaguar. Have been remanufactured.
NEW BOOT/TRUNK FLOOR
New remanufactured – strong, lightweight, professionally trimmed, really good fit (better than the originals) [AML part number 83.82611], to fit all DB7s except early Vantages as they had a skinney, inflated spare wheel, which stopped the boot being flat!
REPEATER TELL-TALES – INDICATOR/HAZARD WARNING
Can’t see/hear your turn-indicators flashing – a common problem. Here’s an easy fix: a replacement relay with an additional interior tell-tale light/led, plus a louder ‘buzzer’. The tell-tale led can be positioned at the top or bottom of the instrument binnacle (whichever is in your sight-line). Similarly the buzzer can be positioned closer to the driver on a volante (to overcome wind noise).
Fitted, or a DIY job with full instructions.
Available for pre-airbag i6 and later models.
i6: £96 on relay exchange basis, later models:£80.
PIVOT CLIP FOR KNEE BOLSTER
These are re-manufactured and clip the leather bolster (the one by the driver’s knees) to the metal struts.
Front cable cheaper and sturdier than AML’s, complete with sleeve and grommet! [AML 30-83218, Jaguar MHF5150BA]
I also have stock of the two rear handbrake cables [30-84493].
£48 each [ ALL SOLD ]
Genuine original ‘programmable’ key blanks for DB7, not required for pre-air bag but essential on all after that! None left now, all the Blacks and the Reds have been sold, and I don’t think any more of either will be available.
BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER – PRE -AIR BAG
In stock [AML 33.81741], rebuilt units, including ABS actuation parts, but not the fluid reservoir on top. Service exchange only. I don’t think you will find these anywhere else……..”
PRE AIR-BAG EXHAUST PIPES AND SILENCERS
£660 plus carriage.
Pre air bag overaxle pipes and rear silencers/mufflers, to original pattern in high quality Stainless Steel and will fit the original tail trims if still serviceable, otherwise new chrome tips can be provided at £40 each.
PRE AIR-BAG ‘STRAIGHT THROUGH’ EXHAUST PIPES
£490 plus carriage.
Pre air bag overaxle pipes with straight through rear pipes, just a VERY slight increase in sound level but NOT loud! Same applies with tail trims as with the mufflers above.
BOOT/TRUNK GAS STRUTS
Does your boot lid only just stay open?… or not?
TONNEAU SIDE SECURING BLADES FOR ALL DB7 & VOLANTES
As per pic, the originals break with age! The back two are different and seem to be fit for purpose, so have had the side blades made of a tougher plastic yet certainly no thicker than the originals.
New are black and need to be riveted in place of originals by a good DIYer, or a trim shop.
FRONT SUSPENSION BUMP STOP SPACERS FOR ALL DB7s (except GTs which are thinner).
£33 (ABS) or £70 (Alloy) each
New alloy ones now available here at £70 (or from AML at £151!). The black ABS replacements (£33) shown are as tough and light as the originals and will not corrode. Because the original alloy spacers are in a water and steel environment they are crumbling fast!
FRONT SUSPENSION BUMP STOPS
The Bump Stops themselves [ 23.83416 ] bolt THROUGH the spacer. Given the corrosion mentioned above, if the spacer has not fallen apart, there will definitely be little chance of the old bump stop bolts being able to be removed from the old spacer.
Intercooler radiator for 6cyl DB7s. [ 32.81569 or 32.84128 ]
INTERCOOLER CHARGE AIR COOLER REBUILDS AVAILABLE
£1500 exchanged for your old unit
These units are not available from AML and indeed the division of IMI Marston who originally built the intercoolers no longer exists, but we have access to their jig. The one shown is a good unit from an airbag i6 and is available for sale on an exchange basis for £800. Exchanged units will then have the internal radiator replaced with a new matrix and will be available for £1500 plus deposit of £800 till the old unit returned.
ANTI-TRAMP FRAME FOR ALL DB7 VANTAGES
Price £925 – less than 1/2 of AML’s mild steel price!
Have been out of stock for some time [ 26.122053AD ], so have now moved to re-fabrication of them in Stainless Steel… no need to paint, powder coat or underseal! These are a work of art, shame they are underneath the car!
FRONT NUMBER PLATE PLINTH AND SEAL STRIP
Fits ALL DB7s. Better made, of heavier gauge ABS, yet cheaper than AML [ 78.82545 ].
A/C COMPRESSOR OUTPUT PIPE & HIGH PRESSURE PORT
These are now no longer available from Jaguar [ their p/n was MHE7340BA ] and are £620+ from AML [ 89.82073 ], so have been specially re-fabricated to original spec. The pipe connects to the back of the compressor and goes up, past the alternator, to the input side of the condensor, on ALL 6 cylinder DB7s.
HUB CAP LOCKING BOLTS FOR i6 DB7 (set of 4)
Original locking bolts used a whole set of combinations of 3 pin layout, so giving a fair degree of individuality/security. Current AML stock has 3 pins equidistant, so one key fits all! Another disadvantage is that, being steel, all (past and present) rust, so look unsightly and seize in alloy wheels. The Stainless Steel ones offered here will, keep their finish, not accumulate road dirt and not seize in the threading into the roadwheel.
REAR LIGHTS SURROUND
This is an ABS extrusion of the surround for the R/H rear light for ALL DB7s with standard rear lights. The customer would have to cut off excess for their particular car as there are variations through the years! L/H available too. These are far sturdier than the originals.
I6 AUTO GEARBOXES
Not new, but should be fine – sumps are cleaned out and new filter fitted.
