SOURCE: 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.

97 XK8 top has no power. Top is up, but not


to latch manually you have a allen key located on the pump in the boot rh side, remove the little plug on the screen closing panel and use the key to latch the mechanism. if the roof top operation is poor/ sluggish it needs the roof/top hydraulic system flushing and new pentosyl fluid using in the system the old type/origional fluid can turn to a jelly like substance.

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.
