Opening Boot when battery dead on 2008 XKR Converible

Recommended Posts

Hi, has anybody got any experience of how to get into the boot to charge the battery when it is dead. The boot will not open manually and I cannot find any access for the remote key in this area. Thanks in anticipation

Welcome to the club, Neil.

 

I think there is a key entry system on the XK  ---  there is on the S Type.

 

It is at the left hand side above the number plate on the s type.  But XK owners will be a bit more exact.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

A friendly garage replied yesterday, the key access to the rear luggage compartment is behind the rear number plate

I knew that there was a key slot on the XK, Neil, but not exactly where.

 

Some of the newer Jaguars don't have that facility, and problems do occur with flat batteries.

My son has a 2008 xkrs and the lock is definately behind the rear number plate, you only need to remove one screw but i can't remember which one.
