SOURCE: 1988 Jaguar Vanden replace headlight

What you need to do is remove the 2 screws on the top bezel from inside the engine bay, then underneath the outer corner of the plastic headlamp surround there is a philips screw, (put your head under neath car near from wheel) loosen the screw, do not remove it, now the headlamp plastic bezel/surround will come free enough so you can get a philips screwdriver in through the middle of the headlamp surround, there is a chrome retaining ring holding the headlamp in place, loosen the 3 philips screws (do not remove) The retaining ring will rotate and you can slide the ring out from the outer edge of the headlamp surround. The headlamp will then come out throught the middle of the surround, disconnect the 3 pin multiplug and reverse process for install.

How do i disable valet mode om a 98 jaguar vanden plas?


Try inserting the key into the drivers door lock and try centrally locking and unlocking all the doors a few times. If this does not reset the valet function try using the key in the drivers door lock and pressing the fob at the same time as locking and unlocking the doors. Even with valet mode engaged you should be able to access the trunk by physically inserting the key into the trunk lock.

Rear driver side door lock doesn't always lock, is there a reset for it?


hi if you are saying it dont lock with the central locking all the time then this indicates the central locking motor is on its way out and will need replacing, this involves taking the door panel off and removing the locking mechanism its not for the novice to do as if you get it wrong you may not be able to get the door open again

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Electric windows


The driver side has a lock out button on the master switch on the driver door.
On mine, I had to remove the master switch, about 2 hours, cleaned the contacts and it worked all windows easily. A lot of work but the replacement switches are very expensive..The other possibility is simply corroded connections as a lot of water gets into the doors......almost the same solution but each door needs to have the door panel taken off.....
