SOURCE: Can not open trunk, Jaguar s-type

Look under the "U" in "Jaguar" on the chrome strip on the trunk. You'll find a key slot where you can insert your ignition key. You may have to remove the license tag frame (if you have one) to get the key into the slot.

Remove back seat to entry trunk


if you can not get in the trunk with your plip there is more than likeley a broken wire around the trunk hinge,or the exterior switch has failed. a manual key point is located in the badge on the trunk,rh side, it may be siezed because it is not used very much until the plip gives a problem, try it, if it is siezed spray some wd40 or something in it and keep trying.the rear seats are easy to remove but i do not think you can get in to the trunk that way because the fuel tank is there the only other way is to drill a hole behind the rear number plate to access the boot latch, good luck.

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.

Luggage LIghts do not light up when opening trunk


The Microswitch is actually attached to the Latch mechanism But I would suggest that you mark the position of the latch BEFORE removing the bolts as there is quite a range of adjustment available when the bolts are loosened!

1999 xj jaguar trunk not opening


Wether it is an xk or xj, you cannot get to the trunk by removing the back seat, the gas tank is in the way.
Where the badge/decal is that says either XJ8 or XK8 there is a key hole in the badge so you can open the trunk.
The most common problem with the auto trunk opening is the actual harness in the right far corner of the trunk, the wires are not long enough and become stressed and eventually fracture causing an open circuit and no power to the remote opening.
Hope this helps

Luggage compartment lights


Should be in the trunk fuse box, more more likely its the harness that feeds the lights, when the trunk is open you need to check and make sure there is power to the lights.
