Newbie here with a fault!

Recommended Posts

Hi All, recently had an amber warning light for Adaptive Dynamics Fault, had diagnosis done and was told the rear right wheel sensor was faulty?? Phoned them today for a price to replace and was told £250.00, is this right?? Any help much appreciated.

Hi Roy and Welcome to the Club,

Problems that are rooted with the ABS wheel sensors and reluctor rings are a common problem - they spawn all sorts of spurious reports TCS, DCS, etc. etc..

I went through all that pain last winter with my S Type and but spent only £15.00 on a new wheel sensor and did all the work myself. I cannot imagine the XF arrangement is all that different and if you're comfortable with oily bits and have the tools the job can be done in less than an hour - and that includes jacking the car up and removing the wheel. To get a flavour for what involved check out YouTube, theres one video where a 5 year old girl installs the sensor on her fathers S Type.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Steve

Hi Again Roy,

I should have checked Frank eBay link before but I see now that Jaguar integrated the cable and sensor into a single piece of kit for the XF - and probably others - hence the big price difference. On earlier models, like my S Type, the sensor and cable are separate items hence my £15 for the sensor alone. That said, the work involved in fitting the sensor and cable is still less than an hour for a DIY job.

Cheers.

Steve
