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.

Can't find in manual "ASC' trouble

ASC is short for "automatic stability control" u will need to have the ABS/Traction control system tested by the dealer for a possiable fault code.

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...

Best regards, Michael

1998 XK8...hear/feel a rub/vibration from the driveline. Jag dealer says transmission needs replaced -- $8,000.

I would try to find a performance shop that builds transmissions. It could be a $80 u-joint and they can it check it and replace it in an hour once they get parts.
Two other ways to go are to have your trans rebuilt at the performance shop or have them locate a Salvage trans and pay them to inspect it and install it.
Ford used some Ford parts on Jags and a 1998 should not be that hard to get parts for.
I hope this helps and Good Luck.

How do i get radio code for 98 xk8 ?

I just bought my 1998 XK8 and it still has the owners manual. It says that there was a code for the radio on a card that was issued with the car when it was purchased. (no card was in the book I recieved) It goes on to say that if you lose the card the only way to get the radio code is to contact a Jag dealer with proof of ownerhsip and they will provide a code.

Hope that helps.
