Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
This is a lengthy process. Start by removing the vanity cover on the engine, the battery with its tray and the filter. Remove the large and small hose from the top of the radiator drivers side. Disconnect the fan harness and the 02 sensor harness in front of the battery tray. remove the O2 harness wires from the clips to free them completely. Remove the fan shroud mounting screws 1 on each side. Raise the car to remove the bumper next. Remove the bumper also starting by removing the lower tray from the wheel well shrouds. There is 1 10mm screw on each side of the bumper and the two next to the head lamps to remove the bumper. Drain the remaining fluid from the radiator from the lower hose drain plug, then detach the hose by lifting the spring clamp. Undo the retaining screws for the AT cooler and AC condensor to set aside. From below you will see the lower radiator support bar held by 4 13mm bolts on each side of the chassis. Remove it and the complete radiator with fan assembly will come down and out thru the bottom of the car. Installation is the reverse. Make sure to use DexCool antifreeze with distilled water or the premixed version when filling. Run until hot with heater on and remove Expansion Tank cap to purge air out of system. The car will do the remainder as time goes by. Just keep an eye on it for a week to fill to proper level as it purges.

There is a clamp that you lift up to release the hose on the radiator and a standard clamp where it connects to the plastic T tubing part of your thermostat housing. That should do it for you. Just wiggle the hose out. To reinstall, leave the spring clamp down on the radiator to here it when it locks in place. The connection to the T tubing is standard with the release clamp, no explanation needed there.
