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.

I have a 97 Jaguar xk8 and would like to know how to adjust the headlamps


I understand they are not adjustable in the normal sense and are self leveling via a servo motor that determines the ride attitude and moves the lights accordingly. Find a jag owners forum as to what to do next.

Door locks on 2005 Jag xk8 not working. Cant close doors


It could need fault codes erasing and defaults restoring with diagnostic equipment but the symptom you describe could equally be caused by the internal switch in one of the door catches that tells the brain the doors are closed.
If the brain doesn't receive a door closed signal from each door and the boot lid it will not allow the central door locking to operate.

I suggest you check the owner's handbook for user information and then reassure yourself all the doors are closing and correctly adjusted.
This is something freezing weather can affect.

Jaguar xk8 cabriolet , the roof will not open en close, the small windows behind go up and down, but the roof is not functioning . we filled up the haudrolic oil, but the oil-seems to vanish if you push...


have you looked for oil leaks on the floor under the seats? My hose burst just above the windscreen filled the courtesy lights panel with oil :( the hoses go down the left A pillar into the footwell then under the seats etc, you have to get the seats out. It was an €800+ at Jag Luxembourg :(

1998 S-reg jaguar XK8 drives perfect until reverse is selected then goes in to reduced performance mode. using a fault code reader fault code P1646 and P0706 were read.


Seems likely it is just a transmission cable adjustment needed. Please see my whole note (not a musical whole note) above under Clarification...

I'd go to this site and read the info... http://www.europeantransmissions.com/Bulletin/DTC-jag/Jag/307-01.pdf

1997 XK8 JAGUAR the BOOT WILL NOT CLOSE, HOW CAN I FIX IT?


this is an electrical part and most probably needs to be replaced , but if it does not go into the lock it self ( Lock is closed while boot is open ) , you need to open manually with a screw driver and then close your boot
