  1. Here’s the workshop manual, http://www.jagrepair.com/images/AutoRepairPhotos/CarPDFFiles/SType/S-Type 2002.5-2008-FSM-Workshop.pdf and for the electrical manual, http://www.jagrepair.com/images/AutoRepairPhotos/CarPDFFiles/SType/S-Type-Electrical-2006on.pdf
  2. Yes, this is correct. Had your wife stopped the car, she would not have been able to restart it. Furthermore, there would have been a warning on the dash to say the fob was missing from the car as she drove away.
  3. You may find the system might just need topping up. Have the system pressure tested to ensure there are no leaks, at the same time, they will be able to tell you how much refrigerant is in the system and whether it needs topping up or not.
  4. Here is the part number you quoted and available. https://parts.jaguarlandroverclassic.com/c2z12659-steering-column-lock.html
  5. Welcome to the forum Mark. A steering lock is worth getting as it acts as a visual deterrent. The best thing to buy is a couple of Faraday pouches to keep your fobs in when you’re not using the car.
  6. Assuming your car is fault free, when fully locked there is a natural discharge of 30milliamps, anything above this figure is considered to be a parasitic drain due to a fault. If you do have a “parasitic drain” then all a CTEK will do is mask the problem, although it will keep your battery charged.
  7. Try Michelin’s, you won’t be disappointed.
  8. It’s more than likely that your “alarm chirp sounder” may be the source of the draw. It is underneath the drivers side bonnet catch. A CTEK will only mask the problem until it’s resolved.
  9. Have a read of this, it will give you all the info you require. https://www.jaginfo.org/threads/oil-service-top-extraction-method-v6-diesel.93529/#post-2364121
  10. Excellent work and a very neat installation too.🤙
  11. Welcome to the forum. Forcing them will do more harm than good. You will need to remove the painted cover first. This will reveal the amount of crud that has built up around the operating mechanism, all of which needs to be cleaned out. Lubricate on completion of cleaning and you should be ok.
  12. Welcome to the forum. Yes you have done the right thing, enjoy.👍
  13. Here you go, https://jaguarspares-northeast.co.uk/product/jaguar-x300-rear-springs/
  14. This is the one, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303707027552
  15. No settings to change, you are responsible for ensuring the car is in park before exiting the vehicle.
