Yesterday the battery warning light came up on my xf 2011. Then multiple faults suck as abs, gear etc. After reading a bit it suggested it is probably the alternator.
The mechanic opened the boot to check the battery and it was filled with water! He said he pulled about 8 litres out. He...
Hello everyone, just purchased a winter project, Jaguar XK 2010 model, it needs quite a bit of tidying. I noticed that the boot appears to be missing something, I can see the road, it also seems to be missing the heat shield, did the XK have this above the exhaust pipes?
I have a issue with my boot not opening using the button on the key or the boot button inside the car.
The only way I can open the boot is through the key. I have replaced the latch thinking it was that, but that has not solved the issue.
Is there a fuse or anything else to check...

Ok so I have a dead battery so the electrics are totally dead so I cant get into the boot to replace or charge. The emergency key hole on the boot lid also didn't work I can't turn it with the key, so looks like that's broken.
Any ideas how I can get into the boot please?
Hi, Just purchased a used XK 4.2 2006 and have a very annoying electrical noise from inside the car at rear. At first I could hear the noise when I have the windows down from outside, but have now pinpointed it to the rear. I've removed the small section of seat in between the back seats and...
Got my XF 2016 (X260) about a year ago, and from day one the trunk lid is difficult to close: I need to literately bang it for it to properly close.. checked with the dealer and they said it is common on the 2016 XFs, that was the same for other brand new XFs available at the showroom...
I am interested in the xk8 but from my searches I struggled to find information on the boot capacity, could anyone answer me or point me to where I can get the internal boot dimensions? (I am after actual w x d x h dims rather than litres)
Another question I'm hoping someone will have some wisdom about:
The rubber boots on the outboard ends of my rear tie-rod ends are starting to split, and so of course I would like to replace them. However, I can only find complete units to purchase, which is a pain when the joints themselves...
My 2008 estate has unfortunately developed a leak at the rear which has lead to the spare wheel well filling with water. That in turn has killed the park assist module :mad: Have found the main leak which has been cured by fitting a new tailgate seal but a small leak is still there. It isn't...
Hi everyone, just wanted o share a simple, yet quite rewarding, project that I've just finished on my x-type.
When going on vacation my better half always finds a way to fill up the enormous boot of the x-type.
In general I don't have a problem with carrying around the extra baggage...
I recently bought a new wheel rim and had a tyre fitted so I have a spare wheel for my XF.
The thing is it does not seem to fit properly in the bottom of the boot. Is there a different set of liner/boot coverings for cars with no spare or one with a spare?
I have never had a problem with the boot not closing before, but suddenly today, it has decided to pack up. the catch remains open even when slamming the lid shut. I have taken it apart and tried lubing the parts, but that has not worked.
