And yet another bad design

Recommended Posts

Trying get battery out, stupid long bolt going through bottom of floor so extremely exposed to the elements resulting in rusting and fusing so can't get out. To change air filter is a bit of mission compared to all other cars I've had. Personally think jaguar are not as good as made out in design and quality sorry guys but that's my opinion.

Why o why when they design them around the drawing boards just say to each other. Eg lets design changing air filter is like other cars, just snap to clips up and hey presto the air box lid comes off. Oh no lets design it so you have to take slam panel off then disconnect all the air intake pipe. Crazy. And as you say Harv lets design it so you have to take wiper arm of to change the wiper blade!!! Just what are thesePeople getting paid for.

Oh well, bolt snapped at least battery out now and on charge.

 

 

So what are you going to do to secure the battery Phil?

Hi Paul. It's in pretty firmly but there's still about 1 inch of bolt piping out so I'll try again with grips sometime, don't think battery is going anywhere anyway. Also found this under parcel shelf any idea what it's for? It's a black and red 8pin plug. For some reason can't upload pic
