Hello club. 

I`m the not so proud owner of the much frowned upon X type 2ltr dsl sport estate (with a couple of issues!!).

As everyone knows they`re a Mondeo wrapped up in cats fur.. Nothing like the series 3 I owned in the 80`s.  Anyhow its practical for its needs and has some quite good extra`s.

Could anyone tell me please if the plastic sill covers are the same as the saloon?, I need a drivers side part, and having problems locating

an o/s one particularly for the estate model.. 

I`m looking forward to my future membership and sure there will plenty of members with some great help and advice. Thank you. Den.

Hi and Welcome Dennis

looks like your not far from me

as far as I am aware all the sill covers are the same

I take it you have checked those sills, hidden behind them covers, as some are really prone to rusting there

as for the mondeo, dont think much it the same, engines in jaguars are much improved and have higher outputs than the ford equivalents, though some electrical items are interchangeable, but not a lot, is directly interchangeable, so there more jaguar than ford

cheers

Joe

Hi Dennis, and welcome to the Club.

The Mondeo has some influence on the x type, but a lesser amount than the Buick and the BMW have on Rolls Royce.  Manufacturers share parts and engines and have done for years.  I had a Rover with a Peugeot engine, and Role Royce used a Buick engine until the  take over by BMW.

Just enjoy you Jaguar  --  My son has a similar car with n 06 plate  -  Great workhorse.

Peter.

Hi Joe and Peter, Thank you for your comments, I know I was being a bit flippant about my X type, and yes peter it is a very good workhorse, and returns great fuel economy..

There are no rust issues under the covers Joe, Thankfully. I have had to buy a saloon sill cover, it hasn't arrived yet, but everything crossed it`ll be fine, so Thank you for your advise.

I`ve owned this car for just short of a year now, and I think I have an EGR problem (heater plug light keeps coming on and going into limp), It`s ok if I keep the revs quite low, so when I get a bit of spare time I`ll investigate more.. Thank you again. Den
