  1. 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,
  2. 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.
  3. fitted these to my wiper arms …. great upgrade.
  4. well done to you ken....nice to see that you've got and sorted it out, 👍
  5. if the pipes blown off, it my be the clip is rusted or pipe spit ! just take all cover trays off... to gain access to get a better look at the problem, I done mine on my x type which was just a new jubilee clip needed. good luck if you do this yourself …. dave
  6. hi Daniel, my insurance is due on my 2004 x type at the end of this month, best quote so far is with hastings direct, fully comp for a year $170 pounds. so can you beat that ??
  7. andy….in the xtype forum someone had the same problem, and said that they had a new reverse switch fitted and it cured/fixed the issue.
  8. ian I take it you have a manual box, if you have to lift the lever up to gain reverse it may be the rods have come off, or the reverse cable has has broken, to gain access remove trim from around leather gaiter and see if you can see any problems in this area, if not sure look on youtube for a video so you know what to look for. good luck dave.
  9. today ive given the 2.0d x type a new air filter & fuel filter, must say it taken some time when it came to the fuel filter I had to fill the new fuel filter with diesel !...... this helps prime the diesel through the system as air gets in the system soon as you disconnect the pipes from the old fuel filter. if you do not fill the new filter with diesel it will just turn over and not start as there is to much air in the system. next on the list is an oil change!!!!
  10. gary, find a good auto election who will be able to trace what the problem is...
  11. 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. 👍
  12. 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.
  13. MOT....great to hear that the jag passed, plus a nice treat for the old girl too. 👍
  14. 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 ?
  15. 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.
