  1. Glad you got it sorted. If you haven't already, I would also check the anti roll bar drop links. Once the main problem has been solved (the "D" bushes) It tends to have a knock on effect to the next weakest point (the anti roll bar drop links) This is a simple fix and very cheap too! (£28 a pair from Jaguar Spares North East 0191 586 7770) Happy motoring. (oh, and I have no association with JSNE, it's just the cheapest place i found!) Roy
  2. Sounds like anti roll bar bushes and drop links need changing. I had a problem with noise on bumpy roads and changed the bushes and links..... now nice and quiet!
  3. Probably not the same problem, but my S-type was constantly steaming up last year. Turned out that one of my rear door rubbers was split, so any water running down ran straight into the rear of the car! One new rubber later, no more steaming up!
  4. No chance. It's bad enough when my laptop freezes or won't respond, but at least It's not controlling my brakes or steering. I wouldn't like to be doing 80mph down the M4 and the computer controlling the "anti-crash" suddenly decides to have a glitch. I'd hate to think what could happen!
  5. Evanescence or Creed usually does the trick if i'm on my own, or Amy Winehouse, Ce Lo Green, or Bruno Mars if the wife is in the car. A nice blast of Pearl Jam for motorway driving!!

  7. Hi. Have you checked that you've got CD's in your bootloader? .. just a thought, I may be wrong...
  8. I have a six year old Dobermann called Sophie.She's as daft as a brush!! She winds up my best mate (who's scared of her) by running up behind him, and "nose butts" him when he bends over to put his shoes on! Every time! You'd think he'd learn by now!! (Sorry Andy, if you read this!)

It's a pleasure to drive.

  12. Here you go. Stickers on my s-type. Car wash proof too!!
  13. Got mine today. It's really exelent quality. Cheers Steve
  14. I've owned my S-type for two years, and the only main problem I've had was the expansion tank cracked, and leaked coolant all over the offside front wheel. apparently it's a common problem! Repair was done at my local Jaguar main dealer and cost £170 all in. I didn't think that was too steep, as the genuine part was £118 on it's own.The only other common problem I'm aware of is the front anti roll bar bushes tend to wear prematurely, noticable by a dull clonk when going over speed bumps and potholes. I hope this will be some help.
  15. Very nice S-type. Is the leaper spring loaded. I think it sets it off.
  16. Hello all. Couldn't manage to sleep tonight, so started surfing. Result! Found this great Owners club, and here i am. I will upload some pics of my fantastic (well, in my opinion, hope you agree) S-type 3.0 SE asap. I've owned her for two years, and is my first jag. I've been very lucky. The only problem I've had (touch wood) Is a leaking expansion tank, which has now been replaced. You just can't beat the Jaguar driving experience. Nothing else comes close!!
