The airbag is held on by 2 plastic clips, they are shaped like a claw to release them you need a flat blade screwdriver to gently seperate the 2 parts of the claw. (there is a jaguar special tool for the job} insert the driver through the holes in the back of the steering wheel and twist 90 degrees. turn the wheel quarter turn to gain access.pull gently on the airbag at the same time, you need the driver to be the correct size its a bit of a pig to do, make sure you disconnect the battery first. the airbag electrical connectors are delicate so be careful, good luck

SOURCE: Steering wheel removal

first you want to unplug the air bag. you do this buy removing the plastic surround around the steering column, where the ignition is, just below the steering wheel itself, then you have to remove the air bag by removing the bolts from the back of the steering wheel...

then get a steeering wheel removal kit, autozone has a loan a tool program.

put the steering wheel tool on and turn oit with a wrench adn the wheel will pop off...

SOURCE: remove rear door panel on x type jaguar

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: how to remove jaguar center console

As in you want a diagram? Either way, I don't have one but I have managed to remove it. I don't know if this might help but I start off by forcibly removing it by holding on to both sides of the top of the console (where the ash tray resides). Upon removal, I remove the cover of the ash tray by unscrewing two screws on both sides of the cover. These require a cross screwdriver. I then take off the connectors to both of the buttons where the gear lever is. The leather surrounding the handbrake is a bit tricky to remove. Slowly unbutton it then remove the top plastic part; you might lose the little spring that holds the button if you aren't careful. Then open the arm rest. Two Torx screws are located by the pivot point of the arm rest. I'm sorry I can't remember the size (most likely an T8). That's just about it. Hope this helps

SOURCE: 2005 jaguar xtype how do i adjust headlights

If I am understanding your post, I believe you do have a levelling
system and it should be near your light switch on the dash. It is
the type of switch that you depress first, it then springs out and
you turn the small knob (just like your instrument panel lights
adjuster next to it.) What you do not have perhaps, if your car is
not fitted with HIDs (high intensity headlamps), is the automatic
levelling system which is a legal requirement when HIDs are fitted
due to the high power of the lights....

if you don't have a self-levelling system then you'll have a manual
system, operated by a knob under the light switch so that you can
adjust to compensate for a heavy load in the rear of the car.

I have a loose steering wheel on a 1997 ford f150 and would like to see or have explained how to remove the steering wheel to make any neccessary repairs,airbag equipped


Safe/disarm the Airbag system by removing the negative battery cable for 5 minutes prior to the start of work, then remove the Airbag capsule from the steering wheel by removing the four machine screws at the rear of the steering wheel, they are down on deep wells, I believe they are 8mm heads, take a flashlight and look first, they used a number of diff screws types so confirm I am right. Once the Airbag capsule is removed remove the large nut under it that retains the steering wheel, then using a steering wheel puller (available from any auto parts store for less than $6) remove the steering wheel, you now have access to the parts that will need to be replaced or tightened if it is a tilt wheel.

Loose steering wheel


Disconnect negative battery cable(10mm).
Insert key and rotate steering wheel until one of the mounting bolts for the airbag are visible from the backside (7/32 or 5.5 mm).Unscrew and rotate 180 degrees until the other is visible.Pry airbag off with a small screwdriver (being very careful) release yellow connector and place airbag aside with leather or vinyl pointing up.
Use a 24mm socket and tighten to 37 ft.pounds.
Reverse procedure to re-install airbag.
Connect cable and remember the computer will have to relearn its settings so car may run different for a while..
