    Broken wing mirror housing

    Can anyone advise if this would suit? Assuming it was the correct electrical connectors- https://www.autoreservejaguar.com/xj-x350-2003-2007-wing-mirror-frame-right-powerfolding.html Is it a safe bet to expect it to be easy enough to transfer all the existing mirror glass, glass motor and...

    Broken wing mirror housing

    Cheers for that, worked a treat. Looks like the car has all the bells and whistles. Tricky bit now seems to be finding one that's definitely the same.

    X358 Daimler Super Eight

    Looks lovely. These really do suit a dark colour. Wish mine was! Not such a fan of the blue silver I have. (Not sure on the proper name)

    Broken wing mirror housing

    People don't list much on their adverts for these, powerfold is the only description I've seen. Mine has puddle lights and powerfold for sure, can't tell on the autodimming, couldn't get it to show obviously. Given the car is a sovereign I'd expect it to have all the bells and whistles. Is...

    Broken wing mirror housing

    Thanks. Is there a way to know for sure? Mine are certainly meant to fold electrically but no idea on the rest.

    Broken wing mirror housing

    Managed to find this online- https://www.autoreservejaguar.com/xj-x350-2003-2007-wing-mirror-frame-right-powerfolding.html Assuming this will fit the bill and a proper fix isn't really possible if something in the frame itself has broken?

    Broken wing mirror housing

    Lost my balance the other day like a complete clown and fell into the driver's wing mirror. It was bent slightly forwards but didn't think any lasting damage had been done as I straightened it up again and all seemed well. Something's clearly broken though, noticed it vibrating while driving...

    Driver seat wont raise/lower

    Can hear the motor wanting to do something when I press the switch in either direction but nothing actually wants to move. Any obvious fixes? Seat seems to move in ever other way no issue.

    Rear shock won't inflate

    You won't believe it but no wonder my mechanic couldn't diagnose the issue, it was the bloody shock absorber I bought from the Jag breaker all along! :rolleyes:

    Rear shock won't inflate

    All options exhausted so it'll be getting transported over to Prestige Jaguar near Glasgow and I'll just get the timing belt done as well.

    Rear shock won't inflate

    The sensor was brand new. He's already compared both rears at the same time, hence showing the different heights nearside to offside, not while driving the car though. It's that low he's weary about driving it as the mud flaps already scrape the deck and the surrounding roads are less than flat.

    Rear shock won't inflate

    Still no joy. Garage are getting help from another local auto electrician who are known to be good. Everything points to the hardware having the capability to work as it should, i.e. no air leaks etc. The readings on the height sensors look to tie in with what they actually have as well, i.e...
