    All-season Tires

    I have Uniroyal Rainsports on my x-type. I find them fantastic in the wet, very good in dry, and very surefooted in snow and ice. Never had a wheelspin at all in recent weather.

    Has started. Can anybody recommend somewhere I can buy a reconditioned transfer box that is guaranteed. Cheers, Steve...

    Transmission filter

    Looks like sound advice. Recently changed my transfer box oil and now I need a new or reconditioned one. (Transfer box)

    Bye bye X Type?

    Hanging onto low gears would normally suggest low oil pressure in the g/box and possibly a low oil level in the box.

    I think she looks good.

    Took the old girl out for a good run today. Hopefully she forgives me for leaving her by herself for 3 weeks.

    Auxilliary power supply

    Does the x type estate have one in the boot or do you have to fit one yourself. Will be parking at airport for 3 weeks and want to plug in a solar trickle charger. The cigar lighter in front has no power supply when ignition is off. TIA Steve...

    Auxilliary power supply

    How embarassing. Car started first turn of the key for AA man. Said the charger had done its job well. Have no idea why it had not started for me. Think the car was sulking for being left idle for 3 weeks. Fickle things these jags.

    Auxilliary power supply

    So run the cable out under the bonnet and through a door?

    Auxilliary power supply

    Never worked. Flat as a pancake. Apparently its better to plug these solar trickle chargers to the obd plug.

    If it is not the wheelspin start at the traffic lights then it is probably something mechanical. Certainly whoever fitted the tyres should be consulted. Is the wear even across the whole tyre? Any photo of the tyres? A garage may also look at suspension bushes etc which if worn could cause excessive wear. Tyre pressures also.

    Space saver spare

    One of the first things I did was source another alloy wheel and relegate the spacesaver to the shed.

    Auto g/box filter

    Has the 5 speed auto. Is there a filter to change? Garage says no. 3.0 x type awd auto. Have tried a search but nothing conclusive found.

    Auto g/box filter

    Hi Joe, It is the 5 speed Auto. Maybe its just not in there any more, anyways, they couldnt find the part on the jaguar parts site they use. Probably wont use them again for that kind of work.

    Auto g/box filter

    Oil all changed in gearbox, transfer box topped up (apparently lots metal filings on the plug), new brakefluid and new power steering fluid. Lets hope it goes, stops, and turns better.
