Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

1995 Jag XJ6 Rear Issues...need to fix ASAP.

Sounds like a hammer sometimes hitting the rear quarter panel. Notice the unit inside the spring (shock? strut? mounting plate?) moving way too much. What is this? What parts should I get?

My 1994 Vanden Plas makes the same noise. I know I need rear shocks. You do also!! Have the rear shocks replaced. Bilstein part number B46 1858 or Koni part  number 30 1377. Actually the Bilstein is the better shock and less expensive.

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6

  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    My brake lights arnt working

    Sounds like you need a new brake switch which is located on the brake pedal under the dash. It is what send the signal to the rear brake light module.

    You can pick one up at any jag dealer.

    Good Luck!

    Sounds like a snapped or broken spring, you need to get them checked asap as could be dangerous.
    As for antifreeze, are you sure you havent put screenwash in recently as this can smell very strongly of Alcohol.

    Changing rear shocks on a 1990 jag

    No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under will be very awkward. The calipers get in the way when you are removing the springs and shocks as a unit. You can move the part and get it out and down, but you will need to remove the rear wheels and let the rear springs hang down.
    Make sure you have a good spring compressor to get the old springs most cases it is the springs that go soft and not the shocks...
    Don't assume that it is the shocks unless you know for sure they are bad.

    My 1989 jag xj6. the rear suspension (shocks) are down

    Hi Verbatum

    Yes, replacing the self leveling rear shockers with gas shocks, is the way to go.

    The self leveling system was notoriously problematic.

    Due to either to the leveling sensor going faulty, and making the car go up and down, whilst sitting at the lights. ( Do not be surprised to see that yours has been disconnected. )
    Other problems are loud knocks over the big bumps, and finally oil leaks from the shockers.

    Yes Jaguar in there wisdom, did not make things easy, and new gas shockers will not match your old springs.

    I do have all the Jaguar part numbers somewhere for this job, if you want to keep it all Jaguar.
    ( let me know and I will have a look !)

    I have seen in the past, Modification Kits being offered in England, but would have to get back to you with source.

    I see you are in Canada , and I am in Spain, and not familiar with your spares situation out there.

    You will be requiring 2 Gas Shockers, 2 Springs and retaining collets, and plates.

    I hope I have been of help.

    Good Luck
