  1. hi peter, yes its very similar to t cut. try t cut with the wd 40 and see how it goes? all the best dave.
  2. well ive had my car 2.0d x type for 8yrs ...with no problems with the radio/cd player and the six stack cd player in the boot. until Saturday !!! my six stack cd player came up on my display CD ERROR so sunday I taken out the cd player from out the boot, I must say that the cassette that holds the six cds was jammed in and took some ejecting !! but it did finally eject.... taken off plastic corner covers and slide the front cover across, this I could then see inside the player ? but could not see anything wrong ! so I got my compressor out and gently blew air through the whole of the unit, loads of little fine bits blew out along with something I have not got a clue flew out of the unit?? but what it was I don't know. so I placed the unit back in the boot and connected it up for a test run to see if and how it would play. and to my amazement it played fantastic , with all six cds playing each in turn when selected, plus the cassette ejected no problem, and just to make sure i done this a good few times before fitting back in boot .. so jobs a good un..
  3. I have a 2.0d x type, on a 54 plate ...and I found that my headlamp glass was dull at the top and had a tide mark half way across each lamp, both sides. ! so I set too with a can of wd 40 and my farecla g3 liquid compound. mixed to a paste on the glass then plenty of elbow grease/rubbing into the glass. done this twice on each headlamp . and this was my finish... pretty good I think, so i shall do this each year on the old girl.
  4. just to mention ….my x type 2,0d failed on emissions first time round on its MOT.. but there was a sticker under the bonnet showing a square box with a figure showing 1.27 ….now I found out that this is the emission test of the engine when first tested. so I was told to peel the sticker off !!!! as when I take it back for the MOT they then have to run the car at a default figure of 3.0 ….. and sure enough my jag passed the MOT.
  5. can I just say …. make sure the fuel filter is full ? then make sure by taking off the fuel pipe that feeds the diesel injectors, and see if diesel pumps out, (with good pressure) if you have any air leaks it will not start ! good luck dave.
  6. ahi Thomas, sounds like you've had a good go at this but not much luck by the outcome ? things I would try is check all intercooler pipes, intercooler itself, splits and cracks, then throttle pedal sensor if one is fitted, may need to check resistance across pedal sensor ? earth contacts too in case short is happening. just a little something to try if your able too, good luck dave.
  7. just to update, the actuator was delivered and was the correct part number. so sunday as the weather was dry ! I fitted the actuator on? it fitted straight in no problem so next was to make sure it worked.... yes yes yes I now have heat back in my little baby 2.0d x type, November meet here I come at gaydon motor museum, happy days....
  8. cheers joe .. I will check this before fitting back into place so it works correct when calling for temperature in the car.
  9. here we see 5 photos ... one is the heater control plenum showing the actuators, then we have the actuator taken apart showing a cog with a spring in ! then we have the motor itself that drives the cog wheels round, (now this one did work my temperature control ?). so having checked the motor which does not work, I have ordered a used control unit or actuator to replace this damaged one. cost of part £15
  10. I too hope to go if the old girl passes its MOT this Friday...... ive been going for over a year now and still enjoy looking around the cars and talking to other jaguar owners, hope to see you both there, mine is a light blue x type on a 54 plate. regards dave.
  11. this may well be a worn constant velocity joint, or a bent/distorted driveshaft. this is where I would start first ! good luck with this issue,
  12. if I had this problem with my car ? I would phone an auto electrician and explain the situation to them, and also ask them if they can find out the problem or not ! the problem with our cars is the ECU (electronic control unit ) which controls ignition , fuel system, anti locking brakes, etc. hope this helps ? all the best dave.
  13. well here is the old fuel filter taken to bits ? as you can see the old filter did need a change ! I average around 3500 miles a year. the last time when this was changed , in 2015.... not bad for 4yrs old,... but I must try to remember to change this next one in 2021, as I recently posted in april,
  14. after a few jag meets at motor museum in gaydon, I noticed that some cars had the wiper washers on the wiper blade arm, where as mine are on the bonnet. as seen in picture. but if you look at the wiper arm ,I have fitted the new nozzle to the wiper arm with the pipe running underneath.
  15. fitted these to my wiper arms …. great upgrade.
