  1. I have a Jag X type which was converted to LPG
  2. My X-Type Jag was converted before I purchased it to run on LPG. The car had 73,000 miles on it when I purchased it. It now has about 82,000 miles. I understand that it was converted to LPG by the Lloyd Ash Group on 22nd March 2012 when it had 45,425 miles on it. It ran perfectly on LPG, changing over automatically when the engine was warm. And at £0.64 pence per litre running the Jag was an absolute joy. It required a special fluid to connect to the injectors - but getting that was no problem. But about eight months ago it developed a fault. Whenever the engine now switches over to
  3. I too would be interested in doing the same - possibly with the inclusion of a WiFi hotspot too. Any ideas?
  4. 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
  5. 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).
  6. The part you want is labelled 9 in this diagram: https://www.sngbarratt.com/uk/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw28_XBRDhARIsAEk21FiGNRvgTivUUbaCT2KnPZAfpsv5rGqu7_0SVrBFHV_VsWK9Go3Xy3AaAhM5EALw_wcB#!/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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Looking forward to receiving the items. The Jag is lovely and I am trying to keep it that way. Ali
  11. Thanks - I haven't been able to find this part anywhere.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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: http://www.xjkltd.co.uk/jaguar-x-type-saloon-roof-rail-finisher-cap-c2s20575xxx/#sthash.IwpSqXm8.dpuf
  15. 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
