  2. Morning all Had an S-type years ago (converted to run on LPG) and regretted it the day I sold it. Have worked through BMW, Mercedes, Audi in the meantime but have finally seen sense. Just bought a 2010 XF S and am over the moon with it. Comfortable, quick and stable (now I’ve put decent tyres on it!). Look forward to learning about the model on the forums. Angry-Silverback

  4. Hi Joe, Thank you for your help. Europarts don't do the clutch ad/or flywheel and it looks like Brtish Parts don't do them either. Marks link does sell them but at Jag prices so am still stuck. Thanks both for trying but please keep your ideas coming everybody. Sincerely, Steve

  6. Hi guys and gals, Just purchased a 2011 Jaguar XJL. Both key fobs are in a far from desirable condition. I'm sure this is a common issue and there is probably a whole thread on options. Could someone please link it on to here so that I can to work on sorting them out. Many thanks in advance, Soggy.

  9. I've just had a very hard time replacing my fuel pump. It apparently stopped working and the AA's diagnosis shewed that there was power to the pump but the pump itself was not running. When I eventually got the unit out I found that the plug connecting the unit to the control system was severely damaged. There were obvious signs of over heating at the pin connections. The plastic had become brittle and the pins themselves were blackened. The actual pump was still working fine when fed directly. As the whole thing is immersed in petrol I thought I'd better warn owners of the potential danger in this model and, maybe others. My car is a 2002 XJ8 Exec. After asking a few questions at various garages I got the impression that several pumps have gone down and the general feeling is that they are getting past there sell by date.
  10. I was looking at Ecsta PS71 but I didn't mention them because as I said I am looking for suggestions, what I will say is they are A rated in the wet and having Kumhos on my Porsche I can say their wet weather performance is exceptional. I will certainly look at the Uniroyals now though having had some positive feedback so thanks for that.

  13. I have recently updated my iPod Touch from a 3rd Generation model to a 5th Generation model to use in my 2013MY XF, apart from the improvement in capacity, speed and style etc. the only other difference is that the newer one uses a Lightening Connector cable rather than the older 30 pin type that Apple originally designed. Unfortunately, even though the content on the newer iPod is working fine, when I plug it into the USB port in the arm rest (where I have always plugged in my 3rd Gen model which works perfectly) it shows an error on the Infotainment screen and reports “No playable media”. Can anyone suggest what might be the problem please?

  16. I'm led to believe that each sensor has a battery fitted to them inside the tyre and may need changing after 4 year's, and i've also heard that they need to be working when the car goes in for it's Mot. I've got them on my XF and one was acting up, but it seems to have settled down now.

  18. I went through 2 sets of OEM discs/pads on my 2008 XKR 4.2 tracking it around Goodwood Circuit over the last couple of years. A local specialist recommended switching to EBC Yellowstuff pads and grooved discs. The pads are for heavy road/light track use, and the discs are supposed to cool down quicker. They still produce dust - more at the start while they bed in, but they have survived one very intense track day so far. See for full explanation of their colour coding and products.
  19. New altarnator fitted all good now
  20. I know this is an old post, but as this sounds like an auto gearbox problem most BMWs of a similar age have exactly the same gearbox! a ZF 6hp26 IIRC or the weaker ZF 6hp19. so just as likely to have the same problem. When I have problems with my British or Italian cars the culprit often has a ZF, Bosch of Getrag label on it.

    Welcome to the club, Kamil. The diesel engine in your car does need a long run about once a month -- about 20 minutes keeping over 45 mpg, or putting the car into third gear to keep the Revs higher. You should also use premium fuel and you can also give the engine an additive [I use Millers Eco plus Diesel] every time you fill up. I have never had a problem with my S type with the V6 2.7 diesel. Regards, Peter.
  23. Hi All I have just joined the club and I am looking for an XKR-R 5.0 Year 2010 to possibly 2012 Milage less than 35K With service history I am a private buyer with cash available and welcome all offers and quite happy to travel Thanks to all those who reply
  24. Did you ever get to the bottom of the screeching and do you still have the car?
  25. Since I ordered my 1st service kit from Berkshire Jag Spares, I get everything from them. I generally order by phone to go through the options and it's always arrived quick and right. They may want VIN, but more likely explain year and model and they'll know the rest 😉
