XK rear window boot cover

Recommended Posts

Here I am again

The rear window of the X150 XK has a cover fitted inside, close to the window, which acts as a security cover for the contents of the boot and is attached to the tailgate. At the bottom edge it is located by two apparently push in clips.

Whilst happily fitting my Jag OC sticker in the rear window, one of these clips popped out.  How does it relocate, as we can't seem to get it to click home?  There is no slot in the head of the fitting, so it's not a screw in type.

Help!   but nevertheless, happy growling

Aha, solved our own problem.  It's a bit of a faff, but the clips do push back in, provided they are perfectly lined up.  According to a USA forum on the topic, the last thing you want is for the part of the fitting which accepts the visible piece to become dislodged and drop into the tailgate, as it is a pain to retrieve, but will rattle around if it isn't retrieved.

Our memo to self....resist attempts to remove the luggage cover and don't try to put any more stickers in the rear window!

As always, happy growling

Further to the above, and, we suppose, responding to our own question/post..........it is the case that the lower fittings ("lower" as in 'at the bottom of the rear window'when the tailgate is shut) have a thread within them. Thus, if they won't fit back in when they have "popped", holding the softish centre section and turning the rest of the fitting releases the pressure sufficiently to enable replacement.  Still a bit of a trial and error faff, but at least it is do-able.

We have discovered that a replacement fitting kit (containing all 4 fitments) is available off the shelf from XJK Jag Parts Warehouse Direct, just in case anything gets mislaid or broken.   Of course, as mentioned before, simplest answer is don't try to place stickers between the panel and the glass in the first place, even if it's a JOC sticker!

As always, happy growling  :yes:
