  1. Jaguar Land Rover UK and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust have today confirmed a fleet of 700 Jaguar I-PACE vehicles for public sector staff across the country The agreement via Northumbria Healthcare’s NHS Fleet Solutions, will give staff from more than 200 organisations access to lease the Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE over a three-year period. Reigning ‘Car of the Year’, the zero emissions Jaguar I-PACE SUV complements the NHS’ ambition to reduce its carbon footprint and be more sustainable. The fleet of I-PACEs will be available to public sector staff at organisations which are signed up to NHS Fleet Solutions from April 2020. Employees will pay for their vehicles via salary sacrifice.
  2. I wonder if it could be a worn suspension component but it should show up with a lever bar inserted into the correct places to show excessive movement. Other areas to look at could be loose / excessive play in the calipers where they mount to the carrier, worn wheel bearings, testing run out on the discs in-situ, etc
  3. Hi Darren....welcome to the Club Great choice of car...the XFRS is definitely one to be reckoned with ! I think you definitely have the right idea with regards to over-servicing as this will lead to a greater reliability and drivability and usually show up anything untoward occurring hopefully before it becomes an (expensive) issue. Keep us updated on your search for 'the right car' and good luck Cheers, Trevor
  4. Hi David....welcome to the Club Plenty of information throughout the forum and dedicated XK sections. Any other info you require about Jaguars then feel free to ask away Good to have you onboard Cheers, Trevor
  5. Hi Andrew.....welcome to the Club The car looks superb and you seem to have got a bargain there! The good thing is that the check list you had seems to be complete, especially as it seems to have been cherished by the previous owner. Mileage is not a big problem and it has got there by its merits as a good car and having been maintained correctly. Timing chains should not be an issue if the oil and filter has been changed frequently and quality parts and fluid fitted. Good to have you onboard Cheers . Trevor
  6. Hi Sean....welcome to the Forum It sounds like they didn't recheck the level and top it up after changing the filter, when the level will drop by the quantity consumed by the new filter when the engine is run once refilled with fresh oil. Changing the engine oil in the interim is a great way to prolong the life of the engine. As you say, you can always take it back for the services and the oil filter change 🙂 I would however always use a quality engine oil with the correct ACEA specification which will more than likely be the same as the Jaguar supplied oil . Quality brands are Castrol, Mobil, Petronas and some others. Try this company for accurate specification engine oils and keen prices (discount through the club as a Premium Member) https://www.opieoils.co.uk/ Cheers, Trevor
  7. Hi Lucian....welcome to the Forum Plenty of information within the forums especially on servicing the XF, best to use the search facility on the top right corner of your screen Good to have you onboard

  9. I suppose you could use some adhesive but they should just click into the hole unless they are not fitting correctly (wrong sides possibly)?
  10. Hi Steve If it is losing boost pressure then you will definitely hear it hissing and blowing. The hoses should swell when the revs are raised enough to create boost pressure from the turbocharger. Other areas to investigate would be the EGR being removed and the Engine Management in limp home mode. This could be rectified by refitting the EGR and using a blanking plate (with small hole in the middle) which still allows the system to recognise an EGR and run normally (albeit with no functioning EGR to block up).
  11. Hi Penny....welcome to the Forum Sometimes its easier to follow the path of least resistance and in this case if you are considering upgrading your phone then maybe this is the easiest way forward.
  12. Hi Carl I'm not personally sure about whether or not they will fit but if you have both heads there it would be a case of taking measurements of all passageways, heights, valve lift, etc which will take time but at least you would be certain that nothing untoward would occur by swapping the heads. Would be interested to know how you get on with this Cheers, Trevor
  13. Thanks for the update John....it's also very useful to know the belt part number to bypass the A/C
  14. I've used black shoe polish in the past for any discoloured areas in the leather, just make sure you polish it all out and finish it off with a soft rag to ensure there is no residue left on the seats
