Question about 1998 Jaguar XK8
The top will not lock. The top comes up very slow.
The problem in my Jag was the hydraulic cylenders that raise the top. The seals in the cyl's leak by, and there isn't enough pressure to lift the top. No external fluid leaks, just internal to the cyl's. I had estimates from 2 shops to replace the units. $1,500 at both shops. I purchased the cylenders for $750 and replaced the myself. Required refilling the tank on the pump in the trunk, passenger sideb behind carpeted panel. Works like new again.
