Open the trunk (boot) remove they carpet covers lining the left side of the trunk just above and to the right of the CD player under the gas cap you will see a 7 shaped lever, flip it with your finger and the cap will open. it is just under the gasoline cap area in the trunk you cannot miss is 98 is black and plastic not sure if all of them are.

If this is an electric release for the petrol flap then there is normally a manual/emergency overide in the boot - maybe a small cable pull? Only a guess as I do not know this particular car only going by what is often fitted on other makes! hope this helps-good luck.

2001 Jaguar XJ8 Idles rough while sitting


o2 sensors often cause a rough idle at stand still. Previously my xj8 had crank case ventilation (pvc valve essentially) issues that caused the check engine w/ restricted performance. I noticed a severe drop in gas mileage as well. Jaguar dealer fixed my problems in a few hours and it was surprisingly cheap. Its worth taking it to advanced or auto zone to see what the computer says. Then decide if you want to shell out for a dealer fix or if you can tackle it yourself. BTW, just to justify myself this is my third jaguar. I have a '94 xj6 with a chevy 350 inside it, previously owned a 95 XJ6 and currently have the xj8. They are wonderful cars if you can put up with their rough times.

Turn your key one turn ahead an let the car sit for a least 2 hours and the radio will unlock itself if this is what is going on with your Jag. Should put a battery pack on your battery while doing this or jumper cables.
