  1. Read of them being separated ..... but it involves heating in an oven to soften the adhesive so they can be separated. Great care is needed.
  2. Is it not the case that some of the seals in the fuel system are fine for diesel but disintegrate when exposed to petrol?
  3. Sorry, but with all the problems with the vehicle you should be taking the car back to the dealer and demanding you money back.....especially as it seems that the dealer is happy to keep messing you about instead of taking ownership of the problems and fixing them.
  4. The non S 3 litre was 240bhp
  5. Also change the fuel filter, a partially blocked one can cause intermittent RP (I have the T Shirt).
  6. You need to have a slave battery. You could take one off of another car. Connect the slave battery to the terminals on the big battery. Remove the big battery making sure the slave one remains connected. Put in new battery, Connect and remove slave battery leads.
  7. And insurance companies wonder why they get a bad name.
  8. They can be rebuilt at far less than £2.5k
  9. The problem buying secondhand is when will they go sticky.
  10. From what I have read that when they go bad there is no way of restoring them.
  11. Best thing to do is to push the tool down the filler and see if it makes a difference.
  12. Check with Halfords what the warranty period is on the battery. A replacement battery in a 5.5 year old car would seem to indicate that there is more wrong than the battery. My car was 12 years old when I replaced the original batteries and only because stop start was not working that normally indicated that they are on their way out.
  13. I have read elsewhere that there is no solution apart from replacing the buttons.
  14. No, they are not rechargeable batteries just normal button batteries. Very easy to change - the owners manual may provide instructions to change them.
  15. Quote: 'Thanks it was actually Halfords' From my experience of Halfords I would not believe a word they say.
  16. If the stop / start is working then you should have good batteries. The button to turn off stop / start is the 'eco' button to the left of the hazard warning switch: Lock / Unlock / Eco / Hazard / Nav / Phone / Menu
  17. Why do people buy from a garage, discover that the car is faulty and then pay out to have it fixed? It is down to the garage, and if they will not do what is required of them take them to the Small Claims Court.
  18. You've posted that on a Jag forum wonder what the reply will be? 😄
  19. Always difficult to make judgements from photos, the camera can make things look better than they are. Be careful of the receptionist - what does the dealer do if for some reason the tyres are illegal, they have cracking etc, no doubt you got a 12 month MOT. Reading your various threads it seems that from the start you have been unhappy with the car. Perhaps, you either need to accept what it is or sell it.
  20. A partially blocked fuel filter will cause the car to go in to RP intermittently.....I've got the tee shirt :)
  21. My understanding is that the Jaguar TSB specifies changing the CJB AND RJB so perhaps this also needs coding, just a thought.

    The profile of a tyre is a function of the width of the tread: The aspect ratio, or profile, refers to the height of the sidewall as a % of the section width. In our example, 55 means the height is equal to 55% of the width So the wider the tyre the higher the sidewall will be resulting in a larger diameter and hence affecting the speedo reading.

    3l vs 2.2l

    In write ups I have read the reviewers complained of the harsh engine sound from the 2.2
  24. Probably cheaper than having to drive to a garage that has Autologic and then the cost of correcting the central locking if you do not have a slave battery.
  25. Yes, the text overflows onto the car and I have to highlight the text to read it.
