    XF problem

    Hi Paul, Just to add, one symptom I had, that if you have it would mean it's the same, is when you hit 2000rpm and the turbo kicks in I could hear a kind of whoosh/blowing sound, obviously the air being forced out of the split hose. You can't see the hose from the top, it's item 12 in the diagram below.

    XF problem

    Hi Had a very similar issue just last month, it turned out to be the turbo intercooler hose that had split. Dealers diagnosed it and had a replacement in next day, I had my cat back just after lunch that day Mine was done under warranty but if you don't have a warranty then I don't think it's too pricey at a good indy. Although if you only got your cat in July you should still have a warranty to cover this. Good luck, Dom
  3. Hi Richard, Sounds like an ordeal indeed, I can't think what might have happened the first time round, mine was faultless, they should have reset the adaptation the first time. When i had mine done they did tell me to take it easy for the first 500 miles, no kick downs etc. but now it is as smooth as silk. Hopefully everything should be all good for you now, it's more about prevention that fixing, if it gets to the point of needing fixing then you're looking at ££££s. Best wishes, Dom
  4. Hi All, Just to update, I called the dealers for an update but the person wasn't at their desk, so have been promised a call back. After that I call the Jaguar extended warranty people, as I hadn't included Jaguar Assist when I renewed it and it would have been very useful. It was a very easy and straight forward change to my policy as it was still within 30 days since renewal, happy days, he did mention that a replacement hose had already been approved on my current case, so this means that it wasn't the intercooler that split but that a hose either split or came off. So Alex, gold star and go to the top of the class. So this means that I should have my cat back tomorrow as hoped, although I did move my Eurotunnel booking back a day from 1.30am Fri to 2.20am Sat as a precaution. As a side note, I find that when ever I am without my cat, any substitute vehicle just doesn't live up to it, I had the newer version Sportbrake, didn't like it, I had an Evoke, didn't like it, from E & E in MK I've had x-types, really don't like them, right now I have a Seat Leon which I also don't like. With exception of the X-Types there is fundamentally wrong with them, just not as nice, comfortable and smooth as my own. Am I just a snob? Anyway, the dealership just called, confirmed split hose, on order for next day, so all being well I will be back in my beloved cat around lunch time tomorrow 😉 Thanks guys for all your advice and support. Best wishes, Dom
  5. Thanks Clive, It does, I am clinging to hope that they can diagnose it quickly, have the part in stock or next day so I can get it back on Thu for my road trip to the Netherlands, otherwise the trip has to be cancelled. Best wishes, Dom
  6. HI Guys, I just got my first ever restricted performance, no loss of power as such though. I pulled off the M25 and parked up, when I restarted the light was off. What I did notice though is that when I hit 2000rpm I can hear a sort of whooshing sound from the engine bay, to the passenger side I guess, like a steady blow of air for a moment. I am in no way mechanically minded but to me that would indicate that perhaps a turbo pipe has split or come loose, I did look under the hood but couldn't see anything obvious. I have to drop it a my dealers tomorrow, I guess a bit of gentle driving is in order, keeping it below the 2000rpm, if possible, they say that it will be looked over within 48hrs. Have any of you experienced anything similar? Is it likely to be a simple fix? I was supposed to be driving to the Netherlands on Thu night. I do have an extended warranty, so the issue isn't getting it fixed but it's a case of how long as I will have to hire a car. Any thoughts and/or advice would be most welcome. Best wishes, Dom
  7. Hi Rich, I just had my gearbox oil changed at 68K, it is recommended to do this at the 65-100K mark, mine didn't really need it either, it was more of a preventative measure. I actually called and spoke with a ZF engineer as some people were suggesting it was best to flush and replace the oil but the ZF engineer said they don't advise to flush as this can loosen some debris and cause problems, it's best just to drain and replace the oil but he did say it is important to change the oil and not sealed for life. I had mine done by E&E in Milton Keynes, if I remember correctly it was about £450. Hope this helps, Dom
  8. Hi Jason, I just changed the battery on my Sportbrake and it seemed bone dry but I have heard of this on the other forum, do a search on jaginfo and you should find some threads on this. Best wishes, Dom
  9. Indeed, in the boot under the floor there is a yellow stick, poke this down your filler hole and it will reset the yellow flap. I had the exact same issue when I bought mine. As for mirrors, as James mentioned, firstly check the settings in the system, there is an "Auto fold" option. For the locks, this is a little more difficult to diagnose, it could be a sign that the battery is getting low and needs replacing, odd things happen when the battery starts to get low, the other thing is that the actuators on the door lock are known to be problematic, I am having an issue currently with both the front passenger door and rear drivers side doors, I will be taking it to the dealers to fix as I still have a warranty, if you bought it from a dealer then they should rectify all your issues. If not then seek out a good Jag indy in your area, the one I use and comes highly recommended might be a little far for you in Milton Keynes, it's a 70 mile drive for me but well worth it, they are called E & E. Welcome to the SportBrake family. Dom
  10. Hi Allan, I use the Wynns Gold Diesel treatment (from Halfrauds), I add it roughly every 4 fills, I use Shell V Power and have never had and DPF or EGR issues in 40'000 miles, my car purrs smoothly and cleanly. Just my 2 penneth. Dom

    Only when the ignition is on, I use mine for my dashcam, a couple of minutes after I turn the engine off the dashcam will go off. Dom
  12. Update* So I took it into the dealers, it turned out it was the wiring loom but not at the boot, it was the loom in the front bumper, it had moved and then proceeded to rub through a couple of wires. All fixed now, they did try to blame it on a pheasant strike (there were still feathers inside my grill lol) but I told them the strike was long after the camera issue started. I went the last 5 weeks without a reversing camera at all, now I find myself forgetting to look at the screen and just using the mirrors lol. Anyway, all sorted on warranty, so no cost to me. Dom
  13. Hi Ian, I just had my Sportbrake at the dealers for a faulty wiring loom, meaning the sensors and rear camera were out, all fixed now but the loan car they gave me was a 2018 Sporbrake R Sport. I can honestly say that our version is nicer, I'm not saying it wasn't nice but it just wasn't as nice as mine, our version feels more refined, I think when it comes time to trade in I will go for an XJ or I-Pace. Which model do you have? Mine is Portfolio spec, in Saphire Black and I had it re-mapped so now 250bhp, 2.2ltr. Enjoy. Dom
  14. Hi Ian, No, unlike the front washers, the screen wash comes from a nozzle under the roof spoiler, not from the wiper arm. Dom
