  2. Just a small update on my post above. PaulT dropped me a line and spurred me on to look into converting the rear seats. Why I hadn't done that before, I don't know. It turns out that they all have 60/40split fold rear seats fitted. Jag just wanted £360 to add some release catches and remove a lining between the seats and the boot. Cheeky sods. Details at these links: https://www.jaginfo.org/threads/how-to-fit-the-oe-rear-seat-release.1223/ https://www.xfforum.co.uk/threads/folding-rear-seats.9118/page-2 So I've ordered the parts (just under £130) and I'm a happy chap.
  3. Has any one bought a Japanese imported jaguar xj6 and how have you found it regarding servicing and parts and is it a good invstment
  4. Hi Adam and welcome. Are these what you are looking for? https://rimmerbros.com/ItemList--Jaguar-XF-Anti-Roll-Bars-Bushes--m-20456 Assuming you are not looking for 2016 on. 🙂 Regards John

  6. Many thanks for the responses and sound advice. The fault DTC C1785 has returned. Each day when I go to start the car I get the same C1785 DTC. Today, wiggling wires and removing/replacing epb plus did not cure it. I have removed, checked and cleaned all fuses relating the the Parking Brake but not relays. I'll check those too. Dam - yes there has been damp in the boot recently (now dried out) but I believe that was from leaking water/ coolant top up bottles I kept in the boot. However, I will monitor to see if any of this abundance of rain is finding a way in. The batter
  7. Hi Dave, I'm down in Seattle and take my car (2014 XKR-S that I bought in Vancouver) off the road for winter, in addition to the battery tender, I have a garage not to far from me that sells ethanol free gas, I run her as low as possible and fill her up with a tankful of that gas, I also use these to stabilize the fuel and clean the injectors. Others also suggest adding a few pounds of air to your tires to help wit flat spots. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076B2WH3L/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Good look and see you in the spring. Steve
  8. Hi Ant, I'm in the middle of respraying the front bumper cover on my XKR-S (removing license plate holes), so I do know how to get it out. There are 3 bolts in total to remove, 2 you can remove from the front of the car with the hood up - they should be obvious, there is a third bolt which requires you taking the wheel liner off and removing it from the inside of the wheel well. Once all 3 are removed and you unplug the connector it should come out. A little fiddly but doable. Let me know if you need any photos. Steve
  9. Good afternoon, I have a 2014 XKR-S, I'm in the middle of respraying the front bumper cover to remove the license plate holes. getting the bumper off requires a number of cable connectors being remove from the bodywork. Please see the pictures, my car has these fir tree clips that slid into the connectors all over my car. I've managed to break one during the strip down. Has anybody every found a part number and source for these little clips please. Thanking you in advance,

  11. Hi folks, The tailgate glass on my 57 plate 2.0L diesel won't open now. I know that there's a switch in the unit, how do I go about checking this out. I don't want to try to force open the plastic cover at the opening button just yet. Thanks.

  14. hi looks possible, its usually leaks, and that age where they start to perish, especially if disturbed cheers Joe
  15. Good evening all in the world of jaguar I look after the archive for the Peerless and Warwick register part of the TR register. See www.peerless-gt.co.uk. if you are not sure of the cars. I have a question please. I am trying to put together info on the company. We do not have any company records. I would like to find out what the jaguar dealer was called in Slough that went into recivership in around 1956/57/58. This was in the Bath Road. It is the operation the owners bought and started Peerless motors ltd and then set up Peerless cars ltd to make the cars. I look forward to
  16. Problem solved.....or should I say 'sorted' as I'm not entirely sure what I did. Let me first say that I have an icarsoft i930 code reader (a must for Jag owners I would suggest - it has saved me a fortune over the last few years) I had already replaced the actuator in Feb 2020 with a used unit. When this most recent fault C1785 occurred a week or so ago, I purchased a new Bosch S5 battery and a replacement (used) EPB Module that had the corresponding codes and revision "E" the same as mine Neither of these steps altered the C1785 DTC and the fault remained.
  17. Can anyone tell me when the MK 11 3.8 automatic was changed from column shift to floor shift ? or was it always an option, also did all the 3.8s come with limited slip diff
  18. Possible causes could be a burnt out bulb, loose or rusted ground ( earthing ) cable, or a loose fitting bulb there could be more causes. The best way would be to use a Multimeter to check it out. Regards Tom.
  19. Hi, can anybody update X type ECU to cure hot start issue? In Nottingham or Sheffield are? The car shows no fault codes, I think it's known as a stumble on start. There was an update to relax the fuel pressure requirements and lash voltage at start up. The fault started immediately after i changed the injectors putting old injectors back in cured the fault immediately, I did reprogram the injectors.
  20. Do you need to change the battery. There are videos on you tube so you how to change them. Its really easy just watch out for the spring.
  21. Thanks Big Jon, The car went to Marshall's Jaguar in Peterborough. They have a lot of franchises, including Jaguar, and it went to their own body shop which is Jaguar approved. I'll change the fob batteries this weekend (just to rule that out, unlikely to be the culprit I know). If that fails, I'll get back in touch with Jaguar and will report back how it goes! Very happy to be on the forum, and have my eye on the new XF, when they are available second hand and any bugs have been ironed out!
  22. hi it all down to diesel in the oil from either leaky injectors or blocked dpf so change the oil regular and keep an eye on oil level, if it goes up between checks you have issues diesel dilutes the oil, its not a very good lubricant and you get heat generated by the main bearing, centre one fails first, cranks gets that hot it weakens and snaps, worse case senario, but its quite common so keep an eye on your oil cheers Joe
  23. Earlier
  24. There is a setting to determine whether they open or not - if it is set to 'not', then they will only open at start up if the climate control was on when you turned the car off... Trust this helps IanL

    I have had 3 from eBay but they were not the LED type everything worked except for the indicators
  26. Hi Wajid, I also am no expert, but I did do a lot of research on Jaguar cars. I found that the Jaguar xjs has increased in value by 50% over the last 10 years, and maybe the xjs Club could assist you in the value of your car. On the starting problem, I think a good mechanic can fit the spark plugs, the alternator and other similar electrical bits to get the car started. About the Jaguar xjs the designs were found several years after Malcolm Sayer, the designer, had suddenly died at the age of 54. Malcolm Sayer was the designer of the Jaguar D Type racing version which was ext
  27. The procedure to wind back the E0B motors is as follows Sit in car with park brake off Hold park brake release for 4 seconds After the 4 second continue to hold release but now hold accelerator down hard for 4 seconds Now whilst both are are being held use your right hand to cycle the ignition off and on quickly Keep both held down and if you have done it right you should hear the motors winding back and you will get a message saying park brake in maintenence mode Once you have replaced the discs and pads to take it out of maintenance mode repeat the procedure
  28. Due to covid restrictions am not picking it up until this weekend . Am like a kid waiting for Christmas at the moment. !!😃
  29. You would need to go to main dealer for the update, can't see it costing that much takes about 10 minutes if that
