Question about 1996 Jaguar Vanden Plas

1 Answer

Mystery Buttons. I know this may be a silly question to some people, but.... I have a 2000 Vanden Plas and there are 2 buttons just below the shifter and I was wondering what exactly they do and what they are called. My car never came with a manual so I don't even know their names. I have come to realize that it makes the car go faster, but if anyone has a more detailed answer that would be awsome. One of the buttons has a picture of something that looks like a speed-o-meter or a tach-o-meter and the other one has a picture of a "S". Thanks!!

The S button indicates "Sport Mode". When sport mode is selected the gear shift points are extended to make full use of teh engine's power reserves.

The "meter" button activates (lit) and deactivates (unlit) cruse control. Once activated cruse control functions are managed with controls on the left hand side of the steering wheel.

Hope this helps!

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.
