Lots of work done on MOT's over the years.
Good price though.

Can I ask Roger and hopefully in future we can all add our Jaguar Finds to the thread for discussion , but on a car this
age is it a good thing to see all this receipted work already done ? I know that some people on the Forum say that a
long list of advisories and an MOT Failure point to a lack of maintenance but there is a limit to what an owner can do ,
things like corroded ferrules and play in bushes is simply beyond even the most conscientious of owners ?

You are correct Red, even the most pampered of cars can still fail a MOT or get advisories, my old XJ6 failed it's MOT once for a similar issue, despite the large expenditure carried out before hand.

Of course it can be a good sign. At least we know what has occurred and fixed. Mostly suspension but still two advisories left on bushes which one would have replaced whilst doing the other works.
Still a good price .

why are the under trays on the advisory ??
Because they obscure the testers vision and they are not allowed to remove them to inspect that part of the engine. The same as advisories if you have a child seat fitted, they cannot check that seat belt so it becomes an advisory.

Another beautiful X350 comes to the marketplace , they are still out there it seems ,
a nice history as well
Looking at it again it looks like the car has been in contact with a lot of salt for brake hose ferrules to corrode in 40K.

  • Brake performance not tested (3.7.A.1)
  • Nearside Front Brake hose ferrule excessively corroded (3.6.B.4e)
  • Offside Front Brake hose ferrule excessively corroded (3.6.B.4e)
  • Nearside Rear Brake hose ferrule excessively corroded (3.6.B.4e)
  • Offside Rear Brake hose ferrule excessively corroded (3.6.B.4e)
  • Nearside Front Brake pipe excessively corroded (3.6.B.2c)
  • Offside Front Brake pipe excessively corroded (3.6.B.2c)
  • Offside Brake pipe excessively corroded (3.6.B.2c)
  • Service brake: efficiency below requirements (3.7.B.7)
  • Parking brake: efficiency below requirements (3.7.B.
This could suggest possible rusting of sills etc in the future.

To be honest I did suspect this was the Main Dealer taking advantage of the Customers Wallet , strange that this wasn't down as an
advisory on the previous MOT ?

It suggests to me that JLR have made some pretty poor brake hoses in recent times , especially the ferrules.

The ones on my XJ are still ok , cleaned up and well greased around the ferrules ..........

I don't ever remember historically replacing a brake hose due to the ferrules / fittings , just perished rubber.

Both of my Mondo's at 11 years old and all season driving are still on the original hoses and fine.

Yes Eddie, the brake lines are crap, very common for corrosion.

FYI, here is the MOT of my old X350, which I was hoping for a clean sheet:

Reason(s) for failure
  • Offside Front Brake pipe excessively corroded (3.6.B.2c)
Advisory notice item(s)
  • Nearside Rear Lower Shock absorber has a slightly worn bush (2.7.4)
  • Offside Rear Lower Shock absorber has a slightly worn bush (2.7.4)
  • Nearside Front Lower Shock absorber has a slightly worn bush (2.7.4)
  • Nearside Front Brake pipe slightly corroded (3.6.B.2c)
  • Parking brake: parking brake efficiency only just met. It would appear that the braking system requires adjustment or repair. (3.7.B.7)
  • osf brake binding slightly when rotated by hand
  • all brake pipes heavily undersealed

Are the front and rears the same length and fittings or are they different ?

I didn't take much notice , just gave them a bit of love when I painted the calipers.

When I need some , ill get them made locally by a company that does many of them.
