  1. I too would be interested in doing the same - possibly with the inclusion of a WiFi hotspot too. Any ideas?
  2. I don't think so but I have just had a second failure of one bulb in my 2004 Jag within a couple of months. Another one went a couple of months before that. I'm off to Halford's tomorrow to get it fixed
  3. It is some time ago but I think that to lift the finisher cap back in place I took a bit of scrap bendy plastic, curved it so that it would act as a spring and inserted the finisher cap with this below it so that the homemade bendy plastic spring pushed the finisher cap back into place so that its front and read rested against the rail (labelled 1 in the diagram).
  4. The part you want is labelled 9 in this diagram:!/English/FindParts/Families/S-Type and X-Type/12/50/12670/11327/12271/1/10/1/viewassembly/7625/:DRIP MOULDING AND FINISHER-SALOON It is called a finisher cap. DukesDave was breaking his jag and sent it to me
  5. The E-Pace production car was on show at Frankfurt but not the I-Pace production car. According to the Financial Times, later this year, JLR will start making the E-Pace in Austria using third-party manufacturing group Magna, which already has a contract to make Jaguar’s first electric car, the I-Pace, from next year. In 2018 the E-Pace will also be made in China at the joint JLR-Chery plant in Changshu. JLR manufacturing director Wolfgang Stadler said: "The UK is the heart and soul of our manufacturing, design and engineering capabilities. However, with our UK facilities operating close to capacity, our contract manufacturing partnership with Magna Steyr and our joint venture in China provide additional volume, agility and flexibility to deliver the new Jaguar E-Pace alongside our other exciting vehicle launches this year." JLR made 604,009 vehicles in the 12 months to the end of March, and has ambitions to make 1m by 2020. The £28,500 E-Pace vehicle pushes the Jaguar brand further into the booming SUV market. Jaguar’s existing SUV, the F-Pace, has sold 80,000 vehicles since launching earlier this year. But the production version of the i-Pace was at the Frankfurt Motor Show. According to Nick Gibbs "...There has been so much interest in the I-Pace, which will sell for less than the Tesla Model X at about 60,000 pounds in its home market, that JLR figured it that the show attention would be better focused on its more mainstream entrants, a company spokesman said ... Jaguar says it has over 25,000 confirmed orders for the I-Pace, with customers in big markets in Europe and the U.S. placing "four-figure" deposits, despite the not knowing the exact final price. That order book is almost two year's worth of production at Magna Steyr's contract manufacturing plant in Graz, Austria, where the I-Pace will be built based on capacity predictions from IHS Markit."
  6. I am considering putting my name down for a Jaguar i-Pace. My local dealer says that the first trial models should be available in the showroom early in the New Year.
  7. Dave - many thanks for the plastic part and thanks for sending me four of them. They arrived today, I trimmed one of them down so it could fit into the channel without dismantling the car (!) and it now looks perfect again. Kind Regards Alistair
  8. Looking forward to receiving the items. The Jag is lovely and I am trying to keep it that way. Ali
  9. Thanks - I haven't been able to find this part anywhere.
  10. Thanks, Joe but I don't want the Roof Rail Finisher Cap. I want the plastic bit which goes inside the channel which the top of the Roof Rail Finisher Cap (the part with the lip at right angles) clicks against. The bottom of the Roof Rail Finisher Cap has a tongue which fits into a different plastic bit in the channel. This is present in my Jag. It is the plastic bit in the channel for the other end of the Roof Rail Finisher Cap which is missing on my Jag. Maybe it was dislodged in a car wash. regards Alistair
  11. Thanks - I've temporarily put a bit of sponge in the channel to act as a kind of spring pushing the tiny rectangular cover up so that it rests level with the roof line. The plastic clip in the channel would be far better. Regards Alistair
  12. I need the connector that this part works against. The depressed part is Jaguar X-Type Saloon Roof Rail Finisher Cap C2S20575XXX - See more at:
  13. I've just spotted that one of the four protective covers for a roof bar/rack is depressed. The reason it is depressed is that the plastic clip it is designed to clip against is missing. So I need to get a replacement plastic socket for it to connect with. Any ideas? I'll try and upload some pictures shortly. Alistair
  14. Thanks. Part 2 of the video establishes that it should not be a fuel pump fault because a V6 has two stoichiometric codes, one for each bank of cylinders. Since I was only getting a single code fault this would indicate that it was not a fuel pump fault. I'm going to top it up with Shell V-Power this afternoon - I used about four gallons of petrol yesterday. Let's see if it runs any better. Alistair
  15. Thanks. What I think has happened is that the EPC in the Jaguar is making a series of measurements and calculations based upon other sensors including a knock sensor. Controlling fuel delivery and the ignition timing are high on the microprocessor's priority list. The microprocessor dictates the opening and closing cycle (pulse) of the fuel injectors, effectively regulating the air/fuel mixture ratio when making minute timing adjustments thousands of times a second. Using LPG which has a RON equivalent of over 100 has meant that I need to have petrol which is between RON 98 to RON 100 to keep the EPG within its parameters. BP Ultimate is only RON 97 but it used to be RON 98 prior to its reformulation. The entry in Wikipedia regarding Shell V-Power suggests that I may well be onto something: Alistair
