  1. Sorted !! Purchased from Ebay Item No 323215897126. £42.99 inc PP Genuine Jaguar unit Very quickly posted. Worth a look, lots of new jaguar parts resonably priced, could be a jaguar dealer! JOHN.
  2. Hi All Have found glow plug relay now! Sited O/S chasis rail behind radiator. oblong unit about 3 inches long, aluminium heat sink with two large conectors.
  3. HI All, Still having issues with the glow plugs on my 2016 XF 2.0D. Have removed all 4 of the glow plugs and tested them on a 12v supply all are working, but the engine still miss fires for a few seconds when really cold. I suspect that the glow plug relay might be suspect, only problem is i cant fid it!! can anyone help with the location? thanks John.
  4. Thanks Joe, Allready tried them ! only listing for air filter and oil filter Tthanks John.
  5. Hi Ray, sounds like the small switches in the fob have failed or failing, common problem. They are called tactile switches. and redilly available on ebay, only problem is they have to be soldered onto the cicuit board in the fob, ebay sell a maintenace kit swithes and battery for your fob. Hope this helps. john.
  6. Hi Ian , Had the same problem with my 2.0D XF R sport. Found i could charge the battery on lihgt charge for 24hrs, and start stop would work for a few days and then stop again. i would then repeat the charging process and the same would happen again! i then decided to check the alternator output, ! 14.8 volts no load,and remaining at 14.8 volts fully loaded. (no fault here then) Concluded it must be a tired battery! (coming up for 4 years old and 130,000 miles) , have changed the battery and the car is now working as it should. There are numerous posts regarding stop start problems, most sorted with a battery change. Its allso worth mentioning that the car started faultlessly with the old battery , and no other noticeable faults. Could be worth getting a load test at local battery supplier., good luck. John.
  7. Thanks for the info Joe, SNG barratt dont have a listing for the X260 XF. Jaguar do not manufacture all of there components , they are put out to Bosche Delphi and companys like NGK (glow plugs) for supply. If you can by from one of the major parts suppliers direct there is a sustantial saving to be made, and you are buying the same component. It would seem that jaguar and other manfactures restrick sales from the parts suppliers until a vehicle has reached a certain age, thats why there is no listings for my car.
  8. Hi all, How frequently is the filter to be changed, on 2016 2.0 D X260? mine has done 130,000 miles now. Anybody know were you can purchase these without going to the dealers! There is no listing in the independant parts suppliers, Same issue as glow plugs . Regards John.
  9. Hi all The photo shown appears to show the battery sited on the right hand side of the boot space. the battery in the x260 model is sited toward the front of the boot, on the 2.0D. Must be a very tight fit to get it in there!! a photo from Chris XF would be appreciated. Regards JOHN.
  10. Hi all , One of the glow plugs in my 2.0 D Xf R sport has stopped workin (gone open circuit). I have trawled the internet and local parts suppliers for a replacement, No body! and i meen nobody has a listing for this engine. Looks like a trip to the dealers, i suspect i am going to pay as much for one, as a full set from other parts suppliers. Any body know otherwise? regards to all JOHN.
  11. Redditch Car Keys Tel 07968 393393
  12. Hi All Just a quick update to the key cutting, if you own a 2016 on Xf (x260), the key programing is a big issue. In 2016 Jaguar Changed the process to help make it more difficult to steal there cars , in order to reprograme a key or keys you have to have the KVM module reprogramed berfore you can programe the keys. The dealers will do this by suppling a new KVM module and 2x keys for the sum of £690.00. There are only a couple of companys in the country that will reprogram the module and supply 2 x keys, it cost me £ 180 pounds and a three hundred mile round trip. But much cheaper than a Jaguar sort !!!! So be aware later X20 no easy key fix.
  13. Hi all , 2016 Jaguar XF R sport 2.0 D I have been looking for some updated info , regarding the emissions recall. Lots of info informing owners about the recall, but very little about its effect on the cars afterward. I decided to contact the dvsa and had a conversation with one of there senior officers, regarding the possibility of getting the car returned with deminished driving ability. I was assured that there is no legal requirement!!!! to have this recall completed, allthough he did try to persude me that i should consider that my vehicle pollutting the enviroment. And i felt i had to coment that my car was far less poluting than some of the earlier diesels. I have spent ages trawlling the net for info regarding people who have had the recall completed , and there views afterward! , have any other forum members found any usefull info? Regards to all.
