    X350 / 358 - Issues, Fixes & Mods - A quick reference with Links

    I've been meaning to start this thread for a very long time, better late than never.

    I own a LWB X350 Super V8, but a lot of the Info you'll find in here will be equally helpful to all X350 & X358 models.

    In some cases it may even help those who own other models of Jaguar.

    I often read or see many threads that are fundamentally asking the same question, the purpose of this thread is to allow visitors to access what I and others have done, quickly.

    If you have a thread detailing an issue and outcome, especially if it has images showing how to, please let me know and I'll gladly add it to this.

    The links below will direct you to another thread, either at the beginning or the page where the fix begins. Reading from these points should allow you to see the whole fix, not everything is documented on the same post or page.

    Great idea Rich!

    You need to add your 'earthing points' link; feel free to use the pics from mine with the secondary earths to add onto yours if it helps.
    ex - 2002 X-Type 2.5 V6; 1995 XJ Sport 3.2; 1998 Mercedes C180 Elegance; VW Passat 2.0TDI (140); Audi A4 Avant 2.0TDI; Nissan Qashqai 1.5dCi; Current - 2007 XJ 4.2 V8 Sovereign, and occasionally an Electric Wheelchair!

    It wasn't me! A big boy done it and ran away.

    Thank you gents and special thanks to Ian for making a sticky in what is probably the best place for it.

    Jim has already moved on to the X351, I and others may follow suit at a later date, but even in 10 years or more there'll be someone who'll be running one of these beauties.

    This is a fine piece of literature young man.
    I doubt you'll ever receive the accolade's of Shaw, Wilde or Poe, but they didn't drive Jaguars.

    I'm flattered that you included my modest contribution, but no mention of the dreaded compressor saga?
    Might be worth re-visiting the contributions. Eddie certainly made many valuable comments with novel ideas.

    Great job Yoda and a boon for future owners.

    Keep well my friend

    Thanks Phil,

    Duly added, a tale I might add that would have graced any Tale of Mystery and Imagination

    Perhaps you are Edgar reborn.

    Dear old Edgar, my favourite poet and author, closely followed by Pratchett.

    Funny how crazies attract one another......

    Poe was as mad a a Honey Badger in a hall of mirrors and Terry P.....well, what an imagination.

    Like Eddie says, we're just N.Q.R. Yoda, N.Q.R. at all........I can live with that .
