  1. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hello all! Been a while, I'm fitting a new front passenger wing to my 2004 petrol manual xtype. Sills / rust solution? And so I've been thinking about my sills... I've known this could be a problem for a while but touch wood, I think my sills are in relatively good shape. However I have not...
  2. F-Type (X152) 2013 - Present
    Could anybody recommend a place that does restoration and protection? Paint / wax etc for the rear subframe, predominantly involing the crossbeam. Preferably near London or Bristol. Also interested in buying pre-prepared parts. Thank you!
  3. XK8 / XKR (X100) 1996 - 2005
    When my XKR was delivered I was concerned to discover a fairly nasty patch of rust under the passenger sill. Does anyone have any advice about what I should do to treat/repair it please? The 30 second video of the underside but is here: Many thanks in anticipation of your advice
  4. XK8 / XKR (X100) 1996 - 2005
    Afternoon all, This morning I went to view an XK8 and need a little advice on what I found on the vehicle, I know what to look for in XK8’s as I have been wanting to purchase one for a while however I can point out issues but not how bad they are? The vehicle I went to see has a few small...
  5. XJ6 / XJ12 / XJR (X300, X330, X305, X306) 1994 – 1
    Hi all, Newbie here, driving an XJ6 3.2 automatic executive, x300 from 1997, runs and drives like heaven. I'm looking to find an answer about these cables, why are they not connected and should they be? there's also a concerning very rusted bit, 3rd photo, which I'm unable to identify. And...
  6. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    As I mentioned in another thread, when I bought the car it was on the COVID MOT extension and the dealer I bought it from agreed at the end of the extension to put a full MOT on the car for me. Well, the time has come and I took it for an MOT and it failed on 3 things, the handbrake not working...
  7. XJ-S / XJS 1976 – 1996
    Hi all, So I finally got around to sorting out the rot on my '85 HE. I've posted a picture of the worst area affected. I've had to chop out back to good metal (might as well make a proper job of it) plus some damn fool tried to jack it up but missed the jacking point by going too far under, so...
  8. XK / XKR (X150) 2006 - 2014
    So after successfully swapping the AC condenser out without removing the nose of the car I spotted some rust patches which I wanted to come back to...which I did and armed with a screwdriver I gave a couple of jabs and it went straight through! I explored a little to see how bad it was but then...

    Hi have recently bought 2.0D 56(2007) saloon and have a few questions. firstly the rear parking sensors seem to work whenever they please. I believe the previous owner (sadly passed away) had replace two sensors and the parking ECU. secondly whats the average cost of a full service and cost...
  10. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    Hi all, Not sure if this has been covered in any previous threads, a search didn't bring it up. My newly purchased XF (MY2013 x250 3.0d S with 20inch black kalimnos alloys) has rust bubbles on most of the alloys. The car is only 4.5 years old, first registered September 2013, albeit a high...

  12. XK8 / XKR (X100) 1996 - 2005
    2003 XK8 76,000 miles Kept in garage. Original problem play in arm. Mechanic in Northern Virginia said he couldn't replace bushing front upper control arm because of rust preventing sliding bushing. Recommends replacing both arms and coating the joint with grease. Is there a better way to...
  13. XJ / XJR (X351) 2010 - 2019
    So I went in for a service yesterday (had a major hoon in the XF-S they gave me! Never heard of dealerships letting people have that for a loan car, it was my first time there too!) and wanted them to check out some rust that was on the car. There were some small areas the size of a 2p coin on...

  15. XJ6 / XJ12 / XJR (X300, X330, X305, X306) 1994 – 1
    Hello All, I am interested in replacing my front wings with glass fibre versions. The wings are from David Manners http://www.jagspares.co.uk/Manners/partdetailalternate.asp?partno=AXX1516GRP. On paper it seems like a good idea to me. No more rusting wings and lighter panels can only help the...
  16. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    I have a 2002 X-type which I absolutely love - it's done just short of 100k miles. I've just spent several hundred pounds having various bits and pieces put right, only to find out that the sills have rusted badly. This is based on the underneath of the sill which you can still see with the...

  18. XK8 / XKR (X100) 1996 - 2005
    Do any of you champions know (a) who might do it for me...it has been suggested by my mechanic that it is probably a job for a restorer and (b) is there any way of getting the parts from a wrecker or ex-market? Any advice much appreciated. This was an unexpected surprise and is due to the car...
  19. Jaguar X-Type Pictures
    We see lots of really nice Jags, but how many owners know what lies beneath? (Undoubtedly many in the Jaguar forum) Chassis, suspension, underbody...We've seen some very interesting threads dealing with X-Type sills, but here I'm just tackling other areas we usually take for granted. * * *...
  20. XJ-S / XJS 1976 – 1996
    Hi. I have a white XJS 5.3 V12 (HE 1988), and it's time I started to addresss some of the bubbles of rust, which (thanks to the marvellous wet summer we've had in England) are beginning to grow at an alarming rate !! I'm trying to locate a decent bodywork garage in London. I live in Streatham...
