This will be hard to answer without more information.
Reasons it could be.
Tire noise notable from cheap tires or tire noise from road surface as in concrete roads etc.
Wheel bearings (admittedly normally heard when turning).
Low tire pressure.
Rear wheel drive vehicles it could be the differential.
the list goes on and on without more info it will be hard to diagnose .
the jaguar front wheel bearing comes complete with a abs sensor and bearing cover if someone has removed the cover it sounds like the air gap between sensor and the reluctor ring is to great or has someone renewed just bearing and not the hub unit like you are ment to do? have a good look at the rear of the bearing cover.
the brakes are pretty much just like any car,remove the fluid reservoir cap,then the tires,then disconnect the neg term on the battery,remove the calibers,then compress with a c clamp,then install,..the bearing are removed by releasing the hub assembly by removing the axle bolts and pin, i will send pictures Monday if need be...once the bearings are replaced make sure the hub isnt overtightened...and put the reservoir cap back on the brake unit...
that would most likely be tires and/or wheel bearing, common thing on these cars, also a way to check if its wheel bearings is to listen when you turn, does it get louder when you turn left or right, if it does it sounds like wheel bearings, run your hand on the tread of the front tires, are they smooth or does it feel jagged? if it feels jagged then you need an alignment. i'd have a shop check the wheel bearings and alignment.
It could be the selenoid lock it self , which is located at he front of the Selector.
You might need to remove the selector and test it if it is working properly. As it should be working for safety reasons
Too bad I am not at work I could call on a price for a bearing. To be honest that is not too bad of a price on a bearing installed. Most Jag parts need to be purchased from Jag. A typical price for a sealed hub bearing unit is about $140 retail for a chevy corsica(just did 2 on one on monday) to about $300-400 on a ford super duty. and that is not including labor. You need air tools, a torque wrench and lock tight thread locker for this job. And something to remove any corrosion from mounting surfaces 1. jack up car,take wheel off. 2. remove brake caliper 3.remove rotor 4.remove whats holding bearing on. Either one big nut on outside or three to four bolts that hold it to the knukle. this is how most cars are now,if its rear wheel drive its a peice of cake ,fwd is a little more difficult.
Sounds like you have some bad bushings, ball joints, or bearings. Take it into the repair shop unless you have the special tools to repair a Jag front suspension.
The parts falling off my Jag are of the finest British make!!
hi i am rather family with this type of jag and the wheel bearings can be a bit tricky and you was right special tools to do the job are reqiered my advice is let a proffesional mechanic do the job it will save you a lot of hastle
