thanks. emailed bauer who refered me to Independent Appliance Services 086 110 1913 . these guys were not helpfull at all, the guy at the spares dep, said they were out of stock approx 1sec after i gave him the model number and put the phone down.
i've emailed them *crosses fingers* for better service/response
btw, once i take the grill element where would i go look apart from teh 2 places mentioned already
either try that link or look for an electronics shop, you must have a few around you
