Sewing machine noise


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 


I’m really hoping someone will be able to help me?

My 2014 XF 3.0 V6 Diesel has the annoying vibration/noise under acceleration. I’ve seen in other posts that this is a known issue and also know there is a “Sewing machine” fix by replacing the earth strap for a braided one. 

The problem I have is that I am unable to locate the strap that’s causing the issue! 

As Scotty Kilmer on YouTube would put it “There’s plastic crap everywhere!” I’ve seen the diagrams for the 2016 XE but obviously different. 

many thanks
