  1. Today
  2. Just done this today. In case anyone else is about to do it on the facelift - do not try to turn the actual bulb, it doesn't turn! There is a black ring collar around the base of the bulb - this turns anticlockwise to unlock the bulb. The collar needs to be moved to the new bulb - press firmly on both open ends of the collar and push, the collar should slide off the bulb - refit in reverse on new bulb.
  3. My Auto gearbox problem (engaging whilst stationery) only happened three times. This was when I had put an injector cleaner in a full tank of diesel and I now recall considerable engine vibration and higher revs during the engaging action. As this took place in the first five minuits running and I have since done 400 miles just shopping and the engine is much smoother I think I have got rid of the problem. I have tested first start each day without fault. This speaks well for Wynn;s formula gold diesel treatment.but I guess any would do. I wonder if anyone has ad a similar problem?
  4. You've done a great job polishing it out. The "after" photos look superb. Well done! How long did that take you?
  5. Yesterday
  6. UPDATE - We really want the car to go to someone who will love it! Any sensible offer considered.
  7. Welcome to the club, Kevin. You have a nice well kept car -- I think the s type is a future classic, -- I certainly enjoy my humble diesel which has all the Grace, Space and Pace that Bill Lyons said. Regards, Peter.
  8. Hi Michael, About 15 years ago I bought quite a good high pressure wash, mainly to clean the patio and conservatory roof. In the instructions it mention that you should never us a high pressure washer on a car, and especially not on a convertible. Not using such a washer is really the solution. Regards, Peter.
  9. Last week
  10. We're having trouble with our 2017 F-Type R's convertible roof leaking when exposed to a high pressure car wash wand. Driver and passenger sides at top of window where there is a "notch" in the rubber seal. This doesn't happen when washed at home with a garden hose. But, keeping it clean in the winter requires going to one of those car wash stalls with the high pressure wands. Anyone else having this problem? Our dealer tried to fix it last fall, but to no avail. I am taking it back to them next Friday to see if they can fix it once and for all. However, I'm not confident they will fix the issue.
  11. thanks peter,got millars today and added.Will see how it goes.
  12. Hi I have just joined the jag owners club I have just acquired my s type r with 76000 on the clock this being the 3rd jag I have owned previous was a s type 3.0 sport then a Xj v8 super now this one kevin
  13. should have Jaguar only parking bays, they would be longer and wider than the norm and have valet parking as standard 🤣
  14. Me too! But yesterday I was berated by a somewhat elderly lady in a Fiat 500 because my XF doesn't fit in the parking spaces at our local CoOp. It was encroaching on the one she wanted to use behind mine. Anyway, she said that if I didn't move forward, she would move in and touch the back of my XF with her Fiat. Completely absurd, since with a good 12" between the cars, hers was still well within her parking space. And don't get me started about parking space widths!
  15. Hi Ian and Lynette, I had an x type, 2.5 AWD petrol on a 2005 plate, and found it very quick and a great road holder with all the quality you expect from a Jaguar. I will look out for you when I am holidaying in Lancashire - The Trough of Bowland is one of the most beautiful areas in the UK. The club is a very friendly one and any information you need will be readily available. Regards, Peter. Lancastrian in exile.
  16. On the way home last night (06 plate X Type Estate) listening to a CD with the screen showing the disc and track. The Traffic Alert cut in but when finished the CDC screen has vanished. Pressed everything in sight but no sound or screen. Any advice would be helpful, Stewart.
  17. Hi Jane, and welcome to the club. That's a bit strange. You seem to have done all, particularly having the diagnostics done at Jaguar, who should have resolved it. Which main dealer was it? Regards, Peter.
  18. Hi Alexander, Halfords will have it in stock. You will also find it in most Auto Accessories shop. Regards, Peter.
  19. thanks again Peter,where can I source Millars ECO. Will follow advice.
  20. Hello and welcome to you both. I’m sure you’ll enjoy every minute of your X type, as I do my S type. This is a great place to be for everything Jaaaag.
  21. Hi, everybody, we are Ian and Lynette and have just purchased our very first Jaguar, an X Type in gold. First impressions are of a brilliantly comfortable, quick and quality car. Looking forward to both offering and receiving support in times of trouble! Ian D
