  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.
  16. if you have internet, type in jaguar breakers in your area and ask them if they have one, but remember to give them as much info so they can see if they have the correct part . I live in Leicestershire but travel up to a jaguar breaker up in Derbyshire, which has been a great help, also they can give you advice too as they do break the cars down.
  17. try this little test ?... try opening the car with key only and see what it does regarding opening of the cars doors ? and check rear glass hatch ? if it seems to work ok after a few tests, then try your remote and see what happens then ! sometimes it can be due to your car battery, or actuators not working correctly, short in the wiring, bad earth connections, start with simple tests first then it will help narrow the problem. but in some cases you will then have to get a multimeter and do a thorough check of the door opening process, which can take a long time due to the electrics, plus its components that are used for the opening of the car system. or get an auto electrician to carry it out who will be able to locate the problem. good luck...… dave
  18. if I could just mention that I would check out the wiring ? as it may be a bad earth contact, short in the circuit, break in a wire, many things route itself showing what it is but trying to trace it is very hard,... I would find a good auto electrician or if you've good at using a multimeter you can check it out yourself.
  19. It all started when we were in the Yorkshire dales, driving around that lovely countryside. when after a good few days I noticed that I was having to really pull up the handbrake as much as possible for it to actually work ? so when we arrived back home, I set too on having a look as to what was going on ! …. On inspection the handbrake was only working on the drives rear side only, /o/s/r. and the near side, n/s/r. was not working at all ? The reason being was near side rear hand brake cable had jammed, not giving me the proper hand brake efficiency. so booked the car in to have the work done, to have new rear hand brake cables both sides fitted with all necessary adjustments to caliper/pistons, plus cable adjustment. …… picked up the old girl, 4hrs later...and it feels 100% with a lot smoother action when pulling on handbrake. cost of work done 170 pounds. now giving me a good piece of mind of a job well done...🤗
  20. with the faults that you all are saying, comes across as electrical. I would find a good auto electrician who will go through each fault, and trace what the problem is, as it may be a short in the circuit, bad earth connections, or other cases to which it may be. just a pointer for you guys …….
  21. well my 2.0d was due its MOT so booked in a week early due to us going away when the MOT runs out. well with me having new rear discs and calipers fitted, plus me giving it an inspection myself, The car went in ( MOT) Monday. to my joy the old girl had passed with only an advisory,... on keeping a check on the front tyres.
  22. WHEN YOU SAY NEW KEY ? DOES THIS MEAN THE METAL PART ! IF SO YOU HAVE TO PLACE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION BARREL AND LET IT LINK UP TO THE NEW KEY PLUS THE CIRUIT BOARD, THEN DO THE PROGRAMMING WHERE IT DOES THE CHIMES. BUT DO IT IN A ORDER, I THINK THERE IS A LINK WHERE SOMEONE HAS EXPLAINED THIS IN ONE OF THE POST. AS FOR THE NEW CICUIT BOARD I WOULD SEE IF IT LOOKS THE SAME REGARDING TO ITS OUT LAY, AS SOME CICUIT BOARDS DIFFER. FOR ME I JUST HAD TO CHANGE THE TACTILE BUTTONS ON THE CICUIT BOARD X4 AND MINE NOW WORKS GREAT, THATS ON A 2004 X TYPE, BEST OF LUCK ...HOPE YOU GET SORTED, DAVE.
  23. sounds as your having a night mare with this issue, at least with you doing the job yourself you will be getting a great insight of the layout of everything and best ways of fitting new parts back in ,( when my boost pipe went I checked loads of components that support the whole system. ) good luck with the repairs, look forward to seeing pics when posted.
  24. sounds as if you are having problems with the electrics, you need someone with a multimeter to check your wiring from the fuse box/ check fuses, (blown) for any resistance in each of these issue's that you have posted. you my have a short or bad earth? good luck with this,
  25. has this got the side door ? and two split rear doors? engine v6 or v8 ? my wifes brother had a Chevrolet in Ibiza v6, many years ago, great day vans but drink the fuel loads....
