Hey guys, so my girl just failed her MOT on a couple of things
Headlamp levelling device inoperative Nearside Front
Headlamp aim too far to the right Offside Front
- Anti-roll bar ball joint dust cover severely deteriorated Offside Rear Upper
I have a 2010 XJ (x351), which I’ve had for around 4 years. It has been trouble free until a couple of days ago, when the words “Suspension Fault” suddenly appeared in amber and the warning has remained on since. So every time I start the car I get a bing sound and the warning appears. I have 2...
I've not long owned my 2006 2.7 TDVI X350 and the inevitable 'air suspension fault' message popped up. I plugged in my OBD scanner and the fault was for 'reservoir plausibility error'. So I figured the compressor was shot because there were no real symptoms as such. I guess that...
On Thursday I just bought my Jag. Paid under 5,000 for it. Was not planning on getting one but it was so clean I could not pass it up. Being 20 years old. And nobody or nothing has been in the back seat at all. Always wanted a Jag and researched the X-Type a little before I bought it. Could not...
Hello everyone, I've just signed up to this forum as I have a hankering for an XK/XKR and would like to seek the advice of other members/owners.
From what I've read, having a full service history is essential as the engines (4.2 & 5.0) are reliable so long as they're regularly serviced.
Thanks for having me on this forum / community.
I am a new owner of a silver 2003 XJ6. This is my first Jaguar and I don't know much about cars. I was oping to get your advice.
Here are the things I was hoping to get your advice on:
The driver's mirror was already busted...
Dear guys/ girls,
my x-type 2 litre auto 2004 was just mot failed and the garage quoted me £620.00 for repair
see http://prntscr.com/p6ups4 for reason for fail
the car is only worth about that, however it only has 76000 miles on the clock and drives well
i am wondering whether to scrap? (I...
Its very difficult to find info about rear suspension differences between front and awd versions. I know in the front it uses same shocks and springs, but in rear it uses different shocks. But dont know if...
I suppose the front springs and shocks are the same. But what about the rear? I Have a 3.0 awd and im planing in changing the standard springs with the sport springs. Here in Spain i can only find the sport springs in front wheel drive diesel cars and im not if these fits in my car.
Does anybody know if the lower front ball joints are replaceable? I have a 2007 2.7D S-Type.
The only part code I found online is XR841215, but this seems to be compatible only with the older S-Type (ALL 2000-2002 S-TYPE MODELS UP TO VIN M45254).
Any input on this matter is appreciated...
Good Morning guys,
I would like to upgrade the suspension of my x-type, because I'd like to have a more aggressive look and sport handling.
At the moment the car is fitted with std suspension (which started to be a bit tired at front, so I need to change them asap) and std springs.
I leased the MY2017 XE First Edition in May, 2016 (I'm in USA). It has the 35t V6 engine, with 225/40R19 front, 255/35R19 rear tires, which are Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus. The lease is nearly ended and I think I will buy it. I have previously leased a 2004 XJ, 2007 XJ, 2010 XF, and 2013...
Has anyone done this job themselves?
I'm staring down the barrel of £300 to replace both front springs (only one has broken, mind).
Is it worth the bother of DIY ?
It looks like all you need for the job are some spring compressors and a full facemask/helmet.
For a start, it seems that...
Hi Guys, looking for a spot of advice,
I need to replace Offside Upper front Control Arm (Wishbone) on my 09 XF but can see that the rear nut and washer are located down behind the Fuse Box in Bulkhead area.
I found this while googling for an easy way....(Only thing I could find on this job...
Hi I am going to replace the rear anti roll bar bushes on 56 plate 2.0d x type. Im being advised that only genuine Jaguar bushes will do as anything else will not be as good or not last long. Has anyone had joy with any particular brand of bushes they can recommend ? Ive seen poly block bushes...
My 2009 XF-R failed the MOT on the offside rear lower wishbone bush - excessive movement.
I would like advice on replacing the wishbone as I know these are generally done in pairs, the garage advised I do both wishbones on the affected side, but I thought I'd come here and ask for opinions on...
I need to replace shocks on my X-Type. I noticed she is not as stable as she should, and there are 180.000 Km on the clock.
What should I replace with shocks? I presume I don't need to replace bumper stoppers, but what about front shock upper assembly?
Any info appreciated!
Been ages since I've been on here due to hectic home life etc but I still have my X type
I've just put it through its 6th MOT and it passed with only 1 advisory
The offside front steering knuckle has a little play in it nothing too serious but I'd like to get it sorted asap
I'm the owner of 2010 Jaguar XF S.
Time to time I can hear some noise from my back suspension, this summer I already replaced bushings in front curved wishbone lower arm. As I don't want to replace full arm, just brushes I came across that there's no really enough information and it's...
Having just moved from an 2000 S Type 3.0 ltr Petrol to a 2010 3.0 D XF we have mixed views of this decision... any feed back on any of these point raised would be interesting.
Victor Meldrew's views-I don't believe it!
1. The suspension gives a terribly jiggly bumpy ride, no better than a a...
