How do you set the garage door opener for a 2004 toyota 4runner LTD?


You hold the remote close to the three buttons on the vehicle. You choose which button you want the remote to transmit to, and you hold it down. With your other hand, depress the garage door remote opener, and hold it very close to the 3-button assembly. Wait for the red L.E.D. light to blink slowly. If it does not blink slow, continue moving the remote around, until it does blink slow. When it starts to blink slowly, stop moving the remote around. Wait until the light starts blinking rapidly. When the light blinks rapidly, the process is complete.

Jag wont move


What did you do? hammer the pads in? It appesrs the pistons are not retracted fully . Open the bleeder screws on both calipers and force the pistons back real slow. then close the bleeders.. open the master cylinder while doing this but leave lid over the fluid so you don't get it all over. Good Luck, Ned

Jaguar XK8 PROBLEM BOOT WON'T CLOSE


In the trunk on the right side behind the carpet is the hyrdaulic unit. There is a T fitting on it. Turn the T fitting counterclockwise to release pressure. Tighten it back up and try the top again. I have had this work for me several times.

1998 jaguar xk8 convertible


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.
Good luck.

My convertible top will not close lock and slow to come up


This is a VERY common problem with these xk convertibles. The most common is the fluid thickens up and the motor has trouble moving the top up and down. What you have to do is perform a convertible fluid flush, which is a pretty difficult task. Jaguar has updated fluid for this flush but it cost like 90 buck a quart, luckily you only need one but its pretty labor intensive. If your look at a dealership to perform this repair is pretty expensive.

I have JAGUAR XK8 CONVERTABLE the roof is slightly open and wont shut how do I close it manually


Hmm, you may need to get the dealer to adjust the cables. Also make sure the pump has fluid (right side trunk, behind the cover). Once the top comes down to the top of the window, you can see the device that should pull it down tight. In an emergency, there is a hex key in the right side of the trunk that you can use to manually bring that down tight. Your vehicle manual explains how to do this emergency operation.

Convertible top


make sure your car is in park and that you have your foot on the break....if you release your foot it will stop. So keep your foot on until it is fully open or fully closed and the passenger seat has returned to where you had it set prior to opening or closing

Corniche vs jag xk8 4.0 soft top


this is the most expencive and grandest in the rolls royce range coming in at £250000 thats a lot of money, so what do you get? to be honest i think this car is a rip off, ok ok you cant deny the quallity and build of this car, but isnt it the same for all rollers? sure, you get a turbocharged v8 producing 544lb ft of torque but you could get that with a ford mustang. i dont think that the interior of this car is that much better than that of a top of the range jag. in fact at nearly £?200000 less the jag xk8 4.0 soft top is a much better buy.
