Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
1998 3.2 sport v8 130.000 miles .had a rear end shunt which needed a new boot lid and valance.Have had car on ramp and inspected very carefully but no luck.The rattle appears when driven over side roads at approx 30/35 mph
If it has only materialized since the shunt, and the associated repairs, I suspect this is the area to look in.
Possibly, they have not adjusted the boot lid lock striker correctly, and this being a little on the loose side, is giving the rattle ?
Normally if you get a grip of the boot lid, and jiggle it up and down, you can hear a rattle.
Also check that the exhaust has not been shunted forward, and is fouling somewhere, as this will give you a rattle too.
Good Luck !
