  1. XF (X260) 2015 - Present
    I have been noticing that my rear wheels get noticeably coated with brake dust just after 200 miles of motorway driving. Is this expected with the XF being a rear wheel drive? My brake pads and disks have pretty good thickness at the moment. Front ones doesn't seem to be as bad. Also I notice...
  2. XF (X260) 2015 - Present
    Hi, I’ve got a x260 Jag XF and the rear discs and pads are corroded and need to be replaced. With regards to the EPB (electronic handbrake) do I just turn it off manually and then work on the rear brakes? Or is there a procedure to turn it off so it doesn’t automatically turn on when I’m...
  3. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    I wanted to start a new thread on this topic to get more exposure. 2005 Jaguar X type; $39,000 miles. Looks mint. Just bought it last week. (sight unseen, long delivery, AS IS) 2 ISSUES: a braking issue and a slight issue with the engine "get up and go" (engine hesitating) BRAKE SYMPTOMS...
  4. XF (X260) 2015 - Present
    Anyone had a decent deal on brakes, been having a look online and all seem expensive. All four are grooved and coroded so need the full set before Mot, not due soon and wont be replacing in the next week but having a look to see whats available. I can see two sizes for the 3.0d, I assume I have...
  5. XF (X260) 2015 - Present
    Hi, I've got a 16 XF, and at the 47k checkup the dealer says I need new rotor/brakes on the back, and quoted $1300 for that, and another $210 to replace/refill with brake fluid. Non-dealer brake place I called wanted 750 for the same thing. I drive the car hard, and I bought the car because...
  6. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    Ladies and gentlemen, My S-Type had a catastrophic fluid leak from one of the rear calipers. It was so bad that all (or nearly all) brake fluid leaked out when the car was parked for a while. I replaced the caliper and both rear discs and pads (they were due), refilled the fluid and bled the...
  7. XJ / XJR (X351) 2010 - 2019
    This is the 4 set of front disks and pads on my XJ. They last for about 3-4 month and then bend ( vibration on the wheel when braking ). Did anyone experience the same problem? How to fix it? I tried different brands including Brembo to no avail.
  8. XF (X260) 2015 - Present
    Can anyone recommend a high-quality aftermarket manufacturer of rotors/pads for 2015 XFR? Or, a vendor with access to well priced OEM? Thanks.
  9. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    I’ve managed to avoid work on the Jag as it gives such a mixture of pleasure and pain. Whilst not perfect my Lexus LS400 is a breeze and once fitted, a part is good for 20 years and stella mileage. My eldest son now drives and complained about poor braking performance...checking records it look...
  10. Mark V to X
    Hi all Does anyone have a drawing of the rear brake assembly on the 1949 MkV
  11. New Members Introduce Yourself Here
    Hi all... Thanks for having me!! I had a full service today at Jaguar Cheltenham.. it was all good! However they called part way through and told me i needed new rear lads and discs as well as front pads. The quote from them to do the work was £938!!!!! I politely declined. I’ve been looking for...
  12. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    Hi All I remember seeing an amazing, in depth discussion on here about dimensions for the front calipers, main reason I joined the forum. And now I call upon you again for more questionable about the front calipers. I did have an s Type that I could have taken dimensions off, but stupidly...
  13. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    The life expantancy of my pads is nigh and i think i will swap out the discs at the same time. however, there seems to be 3 different sizes on offer (Front): 326x30 326x20 355x32 is there a reason for 3 sets being available for this car? I suspect the only way to be sure is to off-wheels and...
  14. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    Hello, A couple of days ago "parking brake" fault showed up (for a couple of seconds, after switching off the ignition), and after that the car feels "heavy" and the rear end feels more noisy than usual... I tried the e-brake resetting procedure (re-calibration) but nothing changed, car still...
  15. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hello, first time posting on the forum, but I have read a LOT of relevant threads. I just bought an X-Type estate, when I test drove it, it was fine, but after about 20 miles on the way back the brakes started binding and got progressively worse. I had to stop a few times to let them cool and...
  16. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    x type rear brake calipers Hi all, i have a 2003 xtype diesel. The hard brake keeps seizing on. I've done to quick fix of freeing off the handbrake mechanism on each side but the fix is short lived. ive had a read on this forum and understand the rear calipers were revised on later cars. im...
  17. XJ-S / XJS 1976 – 1996
    Hello team, here's a strange one. The old girl is pulling to the right on braking, and the garage has identified a 50% imbalance between left and right. So far we have replaced all the pads, the LH brake pipe and LH calliper...and still it's not cured. Now there's a suggestion it could be the...
  18. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    Hiya .. Encountered this problem a few weeks back when reversing out of a car park. The brakes were very ineffective as if the engine was not started. Checked the fluid level and it was a bit low. Topped it up and have not seen the level drop since. Today I pulled away down a small incline to a...
  19. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Okay, So i've always thought the X-type brakes were a little spongy compared to other cars i've drove, but as they've always been very effective i've thought this is just part of the cars character. But when i test drove the 06 2.0 i've just bought my missus (picking up saturday). I nearly...
  20. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi Everyone, I'm back here as everything else has failed. I have posted about this in the past, tried all the suggestions, nothing has helped. In Brief: 2 years ago, I clipped a curb with the front N/S wheel. This damaged the side wall of the tyre and my wobble started. New tyres, wobble still...
