Just got my 1st Jag (XF)


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've just bought a 2014 3.0d XF Rsport and I love it! 

Slight niggle, I tried filling it up for the first time but it kept 'Clicking' off, looking at it when I got home the fuel protection system appears to have activated. Apparently there should be a little tool in the boot but that's missing - Typically! Whilst I was in there I noticed a bit of a strange set up, in the wheel well, I have a pump, foam, locking wheel nut, a tow eye, a red space saver and a random Halfords Jack with nowhere to live. I'm guessing the wheel and Jack don't belong and have been added. The battery seems to be missing a cover too.

Does anyone have a photo of what it should look like please? That way I can try and tell what's missing, what needs replacing and what can go. The spare wheel and jack can come out as there's not a wheel brace to start with.

Thanks all and I look forward to being a member

Welcome to the club, Garry.

I guess that someone has added the space saver  and the jack to replace  the items that seem the modern thing == My s type has a proper spare wheel and all the bits that go with it are neatly placed in the boo.

I hope an XF owner can supply the photo.

Hi Peter,


Thanks for the reply. Yep, just hoping someone can show me what's it's supposed to look like under there. I realise it's a modern world but must admit, although I've probably only ever had to change a tyre once in my life there is a bit of security knowing theres a spare in the boot. I'm just going to take the plunge and embrace the need to save weight.
