Boot Lid Badge.

Recommended Posts

Noticed today that the Boot Lid Badge on my X100 4 litre is a bit odd to say the least. Looks like someone has removed ( stolen ) the actual badge bit, the round " holder " is still there but all it's showing is a shiny dome, not what I want.

A search on the net has shown that there are a few new ones around but at around £60 a go, a bit heavy. I was hoping to find on a stick on decal which would fit into the " holder " but no luck there at all.


So three questions.

1. Anyone know a source for a decal to fit into the  " holder. "

2. A source for a new badge at less than £60, I don't mind second hand.

3. If I am forced into a new badge does anyone know how to remove and refit.


To be clear it is the round badge on top of the Boot Lid which says " Jaguar 4 Litre,  " if anyone has the Part Number that may be useful too.


Thanks everyone.

Thanks for that Jim.

Having trawled the 'net for several hours it seems that a new badge is the only option. I was really hoping to find a " stick on " insert that would stick in/over the " holder," that would have been cheaper and easier than a whole new badge. It seems that these things are available for other marques but not for Jaguar.

So it seems that I will have to bite the bullet and spend what seems a lot of money just for a badge 😢.

Having accepted that this solution is the only option I still don't know how to remove the old badge and fit the new one. Anyone ?

When you get the new one you’ll see how it attaches. If it is stuck on then warm it up first, then using a length of fishing wire, slowly seesaw along the back of the badge whilst maintaining a slightly upward pressure.

Once off, clean the surface thoroughly before attaching the new badge.😊

Thanks Jim, I'm looking forward to that, nothing like a bit of fishing !

I had to buy a couple of small bulbs for the climate control panel a couple of weeks ago and at £9 each ( inc  p & p ) I thought that was bad enough.

Seems that any XK spares that begin with the letter " B " have a premium attached ! 😀

Just realized that I hadn't finished this Thread off.

For a temporary fix I bought four " Growler " Wheel Centre Stickers from Ding Dong Ltd for the grand total of £5.50.

They are an exact fit into the Badge " Holder " and look pretty good so for now I'm pretty pleased with how it looks, I'm beginning to think ( or convince myself ) that it looks better than the " proper " badge................
