If you all were attempting to source parts, where might you start looking? I've looked at the ones most mentioned which were JAEParts, davebean, and a few others.

Do any of you have a list of websites bookmarked that source lotuses in junkyards or is this "who you know" stuff?

If you know "us" you know the right people!



Assuming you want a used scissors jack? Be aware there are different type lift points, the older cars used a little pad while the newer ones accomodated a "blade" on the sill.

Anyway:

That is a good place to start. Be aware that these two don't respond promptly to emails or calls. I'd also ask Jeff @ JAE Parts about a replacement.

I also know of at least two folks who have parted out Esprits...PM me if you strike out with the suppliers above.

PS, If it were me I'd be scouring junkyards for a jack. Could send pics of what the Esprit piece looks like...it's nothing "special" AFAIK.

I have a spare Esprit jack. Send me a PM. I tried to send one to you, but your profile does not permit it.
