  1. gary, find a good auto election who will be able to trace what the problem is...
  2. yes frank that's great to know as I keep a check on mine being on a 2004 plate, but I think one day they will need to be done and as you say both sides. as for the cost that's good, plus its keeping the jag on the road. 👍
  3. hi roz……the issue with water being in the passenger foot well can be down to ether water running down the windscreen and then under the black scuttle where the wipers are, then leaking in through the air pollen filter, the other issue could be that the rain channels that are each side of the wings may be blocked again causing water to through the pollen filter. to check this you need to take off the black scuttle, in this picture you can see the hole to where the water would run down and into the passenger footwell. the pollen filter fits into this black box, which then you can not see the hole. ( to be honest its a bit of a design fault) when I get time I shall rectify this when I get to fit a new pollen filter. as for your sills they need new sills welding in....this is a problem for the s type too. can be costly ! hope this has helped you...dave.
  4. MOT....great to hear that the jag passed, plus a nice treat for the old girl too. 👍
  5. when I changed my battery on a 2004 2.0d ….. I closed the circuit by holding down the" alarm bonnet switch" with a piece of wood and a clamp. with the new battery fitted, so far with mine all is ok, something to try ?
  6. so pleased of this picture as my little 2.0d x type, made it in a shot at the first breakfast meet at the motor museum at gaydon.
  7. well done..... nothing worse when you have electrical gremlins, lets hope it all stays fine and all works well. 👍
  8. hi steve, I went Saturday, and it was a good turn out, a gentleman turned up in a C TYPE open sports replica. next meet is first Saturday in February.
  9. if this was the problem with my car I would start at ( cigar lighter) testing it for power, with a multimeter. if no power I would then start to trace it back right through the whole electric system using the multimeter, bad earths, continuity tests, current measuring too. until it flagged up with a problem, this is a long process but if done correctly you find the problem. then working my way all through the list of your problems, but a good auto electrician will also help out if you are not capable of carrying out this process. good luck with this issue.....dave.
  10. I took my EGR valve off and cleaned it, but this has now been some years ago ! I did check if the plunger inside worked when under vacuum, lucky for me ive only had a few little issues which I have managed to fix myself. the last time I had bad smoke and lack of power was my boost pipe had blew off from the intercooler due to a jubilee clip had rusted,
  11. this seems as it may be your turbo actuator, if you have a square looking box on top of the turbo? get some to rev the car and check to make sure the arm moves from this box to the turbo itself. as this is a problem when the glow plug light flashs. plus limp mode too. some where in the XTYPE FORUM you should find posts regarding on this. all the best ...dave
  12. peter...well done you ! great to see that you don't mind having a go fixing things, plus it saves loads of money in the long run too, I also have the same code reader, great little machine. enjoy your rewards when driving now that you've done the fix.
  13. you say that you've just taken delivery of the XF …. so have you got any warranty with this vehicle ? or was it brought private ? makes me wonder that's all ? !
  14. lets hope that it works, and ever thing is straight forward for you, keep us all posted on how it goes..... good luck …. dave.
  15. peter.. the address. auto reserve, unit 6, belfield street, ilkeston. phone 0115 837 2707 when you call them they will see if they have the parts and will let you know. good luck … dave.
