  1. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    Hi, 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...
  2. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    If it's been raining, and the next morning I go to open the boot on my x type estate, I'm always greeted with a niagra-type water display, running from the tailgate, and onto the car (and invariably into the boot). Is this a common issue? Or are there some drain holes that I should aim to clean...

  9. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    Hi there, I am on a long and steep learning curve here. First noticed some roughness several days earlier than the main event, but it cleared up. Car had been running well 2 years with some minor interventions. One was replacing the green air intake o-rings to fix oil leak onto manifold (I only...
  10. XJ8 / XJR (X308) 1997 - 2003
    I have a 2001 XJR100. In 2013, I moved to a house on a steep hill, with a steep drive that also has an incline. I live in Manchester - we are blessed with rain. I cannot complain when there are parts of the world with drought, their needs are tragically more serious than ingress issues on my...
  11. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    I've got an XF 3.0d on a 59 plate and have had the "Water In Fuel" warning come on. I checked the fuel in the filter by draining it and could see no evidence of water. So, I assumed that it would be the sensor (seems the place to start these days) and replaced it. The light didn't clear. I've...
  12. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    I have noticed recently that water is getting in to the spare wheel well of my '07 S-type. The water appears to be coming in from the very back of the boot. (Down from behind the black plastic trim at the very back of the car, low down between the rear lights) Are there any seals around that...

  14. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    As the title suggests, (yesterday) I found myself in a line of traffic having to drive through some standing water. Not hugely deep - I'd say about 8", but at one point had another vehicle coming the other way which made some quite large waves and it splashed quite high. Shortly afterwards I had...
