SOURCE: Wheel shake and brake judder

what speeds are you obtaining and braking

I would think that you tires are out of balanced whether it be dabre in the rim or an improper balancing job
some cars can be fine up to 40 but when you step up the speed more the more the tires become unbalanced. making the servere shakes.

SOURCE: jaguar xj8. 1999. front passenger door will not

More than likely the door handle assembly is broken. The chrome handle has a pin running through it and through 2 "ears" of a plastic part that creats a pivit point for the handle. One of the plastic ears (probably the bottom one) has broken loose. Glueing it will not hold long if at all. The accepted repair is to replace the handle assembly which consists of a Plastic mounting block of which the "ears" are part, a chrome handle, and a pivot pin. You can buy this assembly used on Ebay at this time (August 2010) for between fifty and seventy dollars including shipping, but you are buying a seven to twelve year old part out of a junked car with the same inherrent weakness as your broken one had. How long the part will last is anyone's guess. My guess is "not long". You can buy a new one that will probably last as long as the original one did, or you can repair the part by fabricating a metal replacement "ear" and attaching it to the Plastic part with very small screws or nuts and bolts as I did. To perform either repair you must remove the inside door panel. In the plastic handle recess there is a small circular plug that can be removed with a thin pointed tool. It reveals a phillips screw that must be removed. Remove the plastic recess part. There is another long screw on the underside of the armrest/handle. With these removed there a number of male to female plastic plugs that can be seperated with a dedicated tool or a flat tool like a common screw driver. Insert tool between the door trim panel and the door at each plug and pry the panel from the door a half inch or so. With all the plugs seperated wiggle and carefully lift the panel over the verticle locking stud because there are 3 wires that must be un plugged. After unpluging the wires, put the panel aside in a safe place. The handle assembly is removed by sliding it toward the front of the car and then removing the cable. Repair or replace the assembly and reassemble in reverse order. Good luck.

Cant get my 99 xj8 out of valet mode, and my trunk will not open.

There are Valet keys (often with a green knob) that will
only unlock the front doors and the ignition but not the
glove box nor boot/trunk.

When either the front door locks or the console button is
pressed, all the doors should lock. Likewise, when either
front door is unlocked, all the doors fuel filler lid and if
selected, the boot will also unlock.

Boot lock has three positions. Unlocked to the left,
automatic with the doors in the center, always locked to the
right. Simply remove the key in what ever position you desire.

The locks can get confused and not work correctly. Simply
sit in the car and manually lock all the doors. That will
usually get the locking module sane again.

Jaguar xj8 boot wont open

Just bought my 98 a week ago....from what I can figure out....the valet mode disables the inside button....until the trunk is opened by the key. From what I understand also....there is a valet key....and an owner key. (I saw the differences online this week) which also ties in with valet mode.
