Broken part of soft top of Jaguar XK8 convertible 1999

Hi, a small part in Zamak of the soft top of my XK8 convertible 1999 is broken. Yet Jaguar shops (both France and England) are saying that I need to replace the entire top which seems crazy as it is a small part removable, and replacing the whole soft top would obviously be very expensive. Any idea about what I could do? thanks Rene

    Fermanonur, thank you, here is a picture of the broken part of the top (it is on the left side).

    i do not have a complete top to propose to you, otherwise I would have used it for me.Buying a new one is expensive.

Hit pothole real bad no damage to car checked all fuses battery it's self has spark but car is unresponsive when I try to turn it on what do I do now jaguar xk8 convertible 1998


In the 1999 Jaguar xj8 there is a fuel cutoff switch on the passenger side right hand panel to the right of the feet. Reach over the top rear of the small panel and find a soft flexible membrane on the top of the switch and press it until it clicks.if that doesnt work,there is a fuel pump relay in the trunk fusebox that might be the problem. 1998 Jaguar XK8 fuel safety shutoff Bing images

MY 99 XK8 CONVERTIBLE WINDOWS GO DOWN 1/4 '' EVERYTIME YOU OPN THE DOOR BUT NOT WILL GO UP AUTOMATICALLY,AS DESIGNED TO DO.HOWEVER THEY WILL GO UP IF YOU RAISE THEM WITH THE SWITCH INSIDE THE CAR,BOTH...


It just needs resetting.Hold each window switch down until you hear a click at the top and then go down all the way and hold until it clicks at the bottom of its travel.A low battery will cause this sometimes or a  battery change.Tony/Hills Motors, San Mateo, CA

My convertible top will not close lock and slow to come up


This is a VERY common problem with these xk convertibles. The most common is the fluid thickens up and the motor has trouble moving the top up and down. What you have to do is perform a convertible fluid flush, which is a pretty difficult task. Jaguar has updated fluid for this flush but it cost like 90 buck a quart, luckily you only need one but its pretty labor intensive. If your look at a dealership to perform this repair is pretty expensive.
