Hi Richard, and welcome to the club.

 

I had a similar experience with a Rover Sterling automatic some years ago and found that a front tyre was the problem.

 

Similarly with my X type after a pothole incident --  a new pair of front tyres and the tracking corrected cures it.

 

Regards,

 

Peter,

 

P.S.  My X type was the same colour as yours  ---   suits the car!

Not related to Jaguar in particular but tracking is always the first thing to do and mine need doing to  :(

Hi Steve,

 

Tracking is a very important little job that I am willing to spend £30 on every now and then, and certainly every time I get new tyres.

Hi Richard,

 

Having got the obvious reasons for the wobble out of the way, Jim has suggested the other possible reasons for it  ---  tyre or rim.  Worth checking out.

 hi Richard

                they go on flea bay from around £150 - £200  or you can get some good second hand ones  with a few kerb marks etc from £50 upwards
