For every r-th order Weil functor TA, we introduce the underlying k-th order Weil functors TAk, k = 1, . . . , r - 1. We deduce that TAM → TAr - 1 M is an affine bundle for every manifold M. Generalizing the classical concept of contact element by C. Ehresmann, we define the bundle κTA M of contact elements of type A on M and we describe some affine properties of this bundle.
