  1. Hi Roger according to my haynes manual, your gearbox holds 1.75 lires but I`m not sure of the type of oil. my car is automatic. maybe halfords will be able to tell you. Cheers Rod
  2. Hi, Is it possible to buy the chrome x type lettering on the tail gate. Mine was damaged at car wash the other day. It could be a trip to the scrap yards. Cheers Rod
  3. Hi Kevin, I think I have the same problem on my 2009 x type estate. I`ve done all the checks that you mention including taking everything out of the boot. What sort of job is it to change the shocks and was it the mounting bushes that had failed? Did you replace with same type or did you upgrade them? My car has done 145k but runs really well apart from this annoying problem. Thanks Rod
  4. Hi, I can confirm that I have recently had a lift in the back of a XE. It was not only very cramped but took me some time to get in and out without marking the trim with my muddy boots. I`m only 5ft 6" tall and slim build and wouldn`t want to travel very far in it. Great performance car though. Cheers Rod
  5. Hi Trevor, I will give the boot polish a try, thanks. Cheers Rod
  6. hi all, my xtype passenger seat, black leather has had liquid spilt on it and has left it patchy. what is the best way to make it better? cheers rod
  7. HHi Ray, I`m near Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire. Cheers Rod
  8. Hi Anthony, I have the same car and had exactly the same problem soon after I bought the car. Took it back to seller and they cleaned the EGR valve but it did it again a few days later so I took it to Independent Jag garage in Hull and they diagnosed turbo actuator fault. Replaced and car has been fine since and seller paid for repair as I tried to claim via my Warranty Wise but they refused to cover the cost. this was over 50k ago and it drives lovely. This is a great car to drive. Enjoy it. Cheers Rod
  9. Hi Steve, Welcome to the club. I have a 2008 2.2 diesel estate auto. Now done 143k. Had a few issues but this is out weighed by the driving pleasure. Always use premium fuel. Change oil and filter as often as you can afford. Check for rear wiper arm spindle seizing up. Take off clean and grease maybe twice a year. Rear suspension is a bit harsh but I think that gives it good road holding. Hope you enjoy it. I`m at the other end of the M62 near Hull. Cheers Rod
  10. Hi Haydn, I`m in East Yorkshire about 15 miles east of Hull. Cheers Rod
  11. Hi Rob, I have a 2008 version and I love it. Its now done 140k and has had all the problems that most of the other cars that I have owned. Always use premium fuel and I change the oil and filter every 8k miles. From a driving point, its the best drive ever. Enjoy. Cheers Rod
  12. Hi Johnny, I have the same problem on my X Type. Sometimes it goes off after starting but sometimes stays on until I turn off the ignition at end of journey. Not noticed it coming on during journey. Passed mot recently. Cheers Rod
  13. Hi Jeff, I`m in the uk, on the east coast near Hull. Our son lives near Detroit in Farmington Hills. Cheers Rod
  14. could it be from steering box etc ? Cheers Rod
  15. Hi, I'm in HU12 postal area and can't get my Bluetooth working after some work was done on the car.  Keep getting the message Phone Not fitted - but Bluetooth did work previously.     Can;t  take it back to the engineers as they don't do electrical stuff.  Any suggestions?
