  4. Changed one of them today, I did this as an exploratory repair since I was unsure how the process would pan out. Now you can see the new bush is on the roll-bar. Very few tools needed, the biggest task was to undo the 13mm a/f bolt due to grime coating the threads. Very little room in there but there is enough ceiling to allow the capture flap to be removed. Then a pry bar gets the old bush out. Easy enough but that's when it gets tricky and take heed, the workshop manual gives no guide on how to change this bush except for removing the subframe. They are right - so I cheated!

  7. Hi Jon According to the workshop manual looks to be either the camera connector (or wiring) or a faulty camera. Regards John

  9. That's fair enough of the dealer, my mistake thought they had sold you the car. Good idea to get the service plan, takes a little worry off your mind. Glad your still happy with the car🙂

  12. Hi Levi, I don't have the problem with my s type. I have a speed control on the passenger seat in the car who ensures that the speed of my s type never exceeds 70 mph. Regards, Peter.

  14. Hi all. I was going to update when the vehicle was up and running. It's still not. To save a lengthy post see: https://www.jaginfo.org/threads/help-with-sdd-smartkey-problem-and-others.113707/#post-2885067 I'm currently in the process of replacing the GWM and DBM to try and cure the battery not charging issue. The key problem was easy to sort (but will reoccur if CJB is not replaced/flashed). If and when I sort the charging problem I will remove the CJB and have it flashed. I've also been very busy so haven't had the time to work on the Jag - I'll update when things change.

  15. I've used both of these companies: https://www.kerbed.co.uk/ based in Henfield https://www.wheelworksuk.co.uk/index.php based in Crawley They were both pretty decent and I'll use one of them again as I'm in a similar situation to you in that my wheels are looking rather scabby. The two seem to be on a par with price and turnaround time but I might use Kerbed as they seemed to be more sympathetic to my indecision on colour choice on a previous set of alloys! As I understand it the default choice is always Lepsons (https://www.lepsons.com/) and I believe that they also hav

  16. I think some of you might also be on one of the other threads about this subject but I put a bit more info on the other post so here it is on this one... As something of another follow-up to this post it seems there is something of an increase in the number of Indepenent JLR service centres that have Autologic that are working out the fix. I've got to have the timing belt on my XF changed imminently and I'm looking to see where the best place to do it will be. If I take it to my local Jaguar main dealer I know they'll try and rinse me for the official fix when the security module inevitab

  20. Hi James, If the amber light could talk it would say "Fix it now and don't mess around". You should now get the DPF dealt with by a garage. Removing the innards of the DPF is illegal and you will fail an MOT. Don't do it. Regards, Peter.

  23. The vehicle battery is probably low or on it's way out, try charging the battery. My car only gets used once or twice a week and the same would happen. Worked after charging battery or after a bit of a run out. Eventually had to replace the battery.

  27. Hi all. After searching for a while I’ve finally purchased my first Jaguar and loving every minute! First question from me. Why so few posts from fellow F Type members?

  28. Welcome to the the club, Andy. I am also a little surprised at the absence in the of quite a few Jaguar owners, and that includes the F type which is a very good successor to the E Type. I have only been in one F Type and guess that there are not many around. Carry on enjoying your Jaguar -- you will have quite a few envying you. Regards, Peter.

  29. Hi Mark, Seems strange to say engine starts but then cuts out. Not sure if it could do this if the timing chain has snapped, I would seek a second opinion. Someone with more knowlege than me should be able to make sense of this. Good luck. Cheers Rod

  33. Hello everyone. I have been very lucky enough to buy a 2002 XJ8 in British Racing Green, which is one of the bomb proof cars used by the Tony Blair government as one of the official ministerial cars. The reg is FB 02 LCX. The chassis number is SAJAC22M02LF44026. It is one of only 7 XJ8's that were converted by Jankel under contract number LV/MIL/53, dated 16/02/2001. It is item number 1 of 7. Asset code NB1126-4104. NSN 2310-99-908-6103. I have no idea what asset code or NSN mean. These are the numbers from the Jankel chassis plate. It is a truly wonderful piece of brilliant Briti

  35. When I took on my S-Type there was no sign of the long bolt which holds the battery in, just a rusty stub sticking out underneath and a Halfords receipt for a new battery with the documents. The battery was 'held' in place by a daisy chain of cable-ties. This looked like a potential MoT fail to me. Not having seen the system as it should be, I drilled and tapped the remains of the captive bolt in the boot floor and put a new 1.5" long bolt in from underneath. Now the plastic battery retaining block is held by a nylok nut and the threads are inside the boot. So the bolt head can rust all i
