    The vehicle was towed away once and this mechanism hasn't worked since.

Hi.....
Your car is a AWD.. I don't recomend Dually truck to tow it. With a dually 2 tires will stay on the road. and you have no choice to desengage the AWD. system.
Bucause you will damage the Transfercase. and made the transsmission. work dry.
The best way is a Flat bed.
Is just my suggestion.

Thank you for use fixya..

Can i flat tow a 2006 xtype jaguar behind a motorhome


I would be afraid to tow with any of the wheels on pavement. You could burn out the central differential.

Can I tow my 2000 s type jaguar behind my motorhome


Yes if it is on a trailer.
You should never tow a vehicle with all four wheels on the ground unless you can disconnect the driveshaft.
And a car dolly won't work if the vehicle is rear wheel drive or all wheel drive.

Do I have to disassemble the drive line to tow a 1990 Isuzu P'up on a tow dolly?


if its not AWD, or in 4WD then no, just ensure its in neutral, or you can tow it from the back, just lock the steering wheel, tie the seat belt around it afterwards. We used to do it all the time. It also depends on how far you are towing the vehicle.

How do i tow a 1984 jaguar xj6


On a flat bed tow truck. You could use a tow bar and remove the driveshaft. But because of the weight and power steering being stiff without the engine running, I would suggest you rent a trailer with brakes. Don't cheap out and rent a towing dolly that only holds one axle off the ground as Jag's sit low to the ground and are rear wheel drive, meaning the rear wheels would have to be on the dolly and the fronts on the ground. You would risk damaging the steering, front suspension, engine sump, radiator, and front bumper.
