  1. Thank you Akaz for spending the time to write out the informative information, it is most helpful. I will look into it and let you know how it goes. Also thank you Kie. I will have a look and see where mine is set. Regards Martin.
  2. Thanks for the reply Jon. The misting starts on wet days and does not clear, can not say my air con is blowing as cold as Siberia, more like a chilly day in Bournemouth. My concern is I have given £96 to a garage I trust to re gas and test my system but, can not notice any improvement, we have not had any rain yet to try out the misting. Just wondering if there are any tests I can do to check for sure. Regards Martin.
  3. Hi all. Jag XF 3.0D 2009 I have just had my air con re-gassed as I notices a couple of weeks ago the windscreen misting up, last time that happened 2 years ago, the air con had run low on gas so, the pump would not engage. The garage that has just re gassed my air con said that it required 350g of gas and is now working fine, no leaks detected but, I have not noticed any difference when set down to 16c, I think it blew much cooler a year ago when we had some warm weather. I don't think I can hear the clonk of the pump engaging when turning on the air con and the revs do not dip, but I can not remember if this happens on the Jag as I always have the air con on. Could anyone advise on how to check for sure if the pump is working and if not where to start looking for problems? Thanks in advance for any help Regards Martin
  4. Hi thanks for the answer. I managed to find a guy that could measure the thread of the bolts and have found they are M7 with 1mm pitch. I purchased a suitable tap and have now refitted the bolts so the wheels look good as new again.
  5. Hi all. I have a set of 20" Senta alloys on my 2009 XF s , I decided they needed refurbishment as they looked a bit tatty. I removed the fake split rim bolts so I could polish them up while the rims got the beauty treatment, I got the rims back lovely they look now and, proceeded to refit the bolts but, it would seem even though the holes had something put in them when being painted, paint has still got into the thread, easy I thought just run a tap down the thread, now the problem shows its face. I have measured the thread on the bolt, it looks to be around 7mm but could also be 1/4 inch or whatever the next size up is. Question is does anybody know the size of the threads for the fake rim bolts? I have spent hours googling the internet for info but nothing. Please help so I can get this sorted many thanks in advance Martin.
