Question about 2004 Jaguar X-Type
I have water leaking into the nearside footwell of my 2006 X type. I have taken the carpet set out and have determined that the water is coming in down the A post at a point somewhere behind the dash in the corner. I can replicate the problem if a pour load of water down the drain channel immeditately below the windscreen in the corner. As present no water runs out at the bottom of the nearside A post but instead tracks across the car and pours out the drivers side. Does this suggest that the nearside drian channle is blocked probably with leave mulch?
Check for blockage and you are likely to find that is the cause of the interior leak.

SOURCE: Leaking waterpump?
Hello had the same problem in the last mouth, you need to change the water pump front housing it cost about 75-95 for the part if you can do it your self.

First of all, one of the easiest & cheapest ways to find a draw in the system, if you don't have a clamp on style amp-meter, is with a 12volt test light that costs about $5-$10 at parts stores or hardware stores. You remove positive (+) cable from battery, and simply attach test light in between the battery cable & battery + post. Be careful neither end touches metal obviously. Anytime the test light is lit, you have a draw. If light is nice & bright, it's a fairly good draw, when dim, slight draw. When light goes out, no draw. Now start pulling and re-installing fuses. If you pull a fuse and bright light goes out, you've isolated the circuit.. I usually make sure I have notes or whatever is needed to insure I put fuses back where they should be, then I pull radio fuse and leave it out, as it will cause a constant draw for memory, and sometimes any accessory fuses such as lighter, or power socket for 12v chargers etc. With those out of the way, start pulling and watch light, if no change, put it back in. When I run into a real stumper, I make necessary notes if needed as before, and pull them all out, and light should be off. Now I start putting them in 1 at a time, and watch the light, when it comes on, I note that circuit, pull it back out, and do same with the rest. When your done you will have notes on every circuit that is causing a draw on your battery when sitting. Before you start, take your test light, go to all the fuses and touch little tips sticking out at end of fuses on both side to test for power, if only power on one side, that is a circuit that would not cause a draw when sitting & vehicle off. That would only be powered when key on, headlights on for example, so it doesn't come into play here. Leave those in if you want & it doesn't confuse you. Yes a little time consumming, but hey, think of the learning experience, and a simple test light, is something that every car owner should have anyway. Next time your wondering which fuse blew, you have a test light to tell you. As far as the heated seat goes, if there is a short there, and it's causing a lot of draw, pulling fuse should eliminate & confirm that.

It sounds like the classic symptoms of air leaking into the engine after air flow sensor. check the hoses on top of the engine. Also spray detector spray around the inlet manifold this will get dragged into the engine at the leak and will make a noticeable affect on the engine note/smoothness. Leaks around the inlet manifold is quite a common fault on s type. see other posts with similar symptons earlier in jaguar fixya.
Good luck. Please let me know if you find the fault.

I would suggest that the rubber seals on the boot surround are in fact faulty or the boot lid is very badly aligned. (Has there been an accident repair to the boot area?)
1. Check the seals again - every inch - and check for movement as some of the rubber adhesive which glues the rubbers to the body work may have broken down.
2. You should be able to replicate the problem with your garden hose. Run the hose full bore over the upper section of the boot lid and over the rear window for a few minutes. As soon as the surface water has cleared the exterior body work open the boot and you should be able to detect where the entry point is by inspecting the edges of the boot compartment and the boot lid.
One person I know popped his wife in the boot while he ran water over the boot area to find a troublesome leak point. I would not recommend doing that.
