If you just have a broken lense,you can pop off the old unit with a largish screw driver.
open the bonnet,un plug the light...the lamp is clipped on in 4 places,put your screw driver behind the bowl part of the lamp and prize forwards not too hard tho and the light should pop off,then the new one,offer it up to the mounting with the 4 balls on then just give it a tap with your hand not too hard so ya dont break it....plug it in...job done !!

How to change thermostat on 98 xj8l

3, 8mm bolts hold it to the t-state housing located at the end of the upper radiator hose to the engine. The new T-stat will include a new seal. (if you notice a white milky substance on the old
t-stat you have a problem which may include needing a new water pump, by I digress) Do not put any silicone on the housing or seal.

after replacement, be sure all the air is out of the system, it will need to be "burped" and topped up serveral times before you go on a long road test. Be sure to use a 50/50 mix of Jaguar anti freeze and water to fill the system.

good luck!

Need to replace fuel pump on a 1999 jaguar xj8. where is the pump located and can u get 2 it through the back seat or do u have to drop the gas tank.

Typically Jaguar fuel pumps are the submerged type (i.e. in the fuel tank) so you will need to remove the fuel tank or there might be a panel in the the tank that you can remove to get the the fuel pump. Good luck.
