It could be the reverse brake band. If you get a Haynes manual for this model, it will tell you where and how to adjust the bands.
Hope this helps

1996 Jaguar xj6 sunroof will not close you can hear motor running, how can you manual close it?


If you remove any gear that is coupling it to the motor you should be able to slide it back to where you want. I would put gear back just to hold it in place and keep it from moving. But you do have to replace that gearbox for future operation.

Where is the starter motor located on a 1985 Jaguar XJ6?


The starter is on the left side of the engine, near the firewall, kind of below the battery. You can follow the positive side of the battery cable to the starter.

My 1985 XJ6 Jaguar sunroof won't fully close.( Australian model)Is there a manual overide winder somwere ?


The sunroof motor is accessable from the trunk. A winder handle for emergency use was provided when the car was new but you can use another tool to do the job. Take off the rear bulkhead panel and the motor will be visable and you will see the shaft to turn the sunroof manually. Good luck!

1988 Jaguar xj6 No forward in the automatic trans rev works fine


the linkage is just a slight bit off, it parks between gears when you shift into the slots. Disassemble the shifter from the center console, and slowly move just the cable its self between the positions and see if you have forword gears. When you find and sync the gears, then tighten the cable to the shifter so the positions match the notches in the shifter.
