    how do I change the condenser on an S Type Jaguar?
    I realise the parts have to be removed but how do I go about unattaching everything to get to the old condenser?

    Not much of an answer from an 'expert'. Not satisfactory at all.

If you're talking about the air conditioner condenser, it should be located near the radiator in the front.

First, you'll have to have the a/c system evacuated. This must be performed by a certified technician for air conditioning.

Then, the part can be unfastened and removed from the system.

Once the new part is installed, a leak down test can be performed by the technician where the system is vacuumed out, and the car's a/c system can be recharged with fresh r134a refrigerent.

Good luck on this repair.

    I understand that the old one has to come out but how do I get to it to get it out?

    Unfortunately, I do not know the answer to this question, exactly, as far as removing the condenser on this particular vehicle, as I have never worked on one.



    You might be able to have the dealer do it, where they have more specialized training and experience with it.



    Although, if you watched them do it, it would seem like it was easy as they removed the plastic parts, first.



    Good luck to you.

X-Type Jaguar blowing white smoke


White smoke is steam. Blue smoke is oil, Black smoke is too rich a mixture.

Check your water to see if it is going down. Check your oil to see if there is any water in it.

some cars will steam when warming up as condensation which forms in the exhaust is burning off.

Your drain hose is under towards the bottom of the car, up against the firewall. You may be able to blow it out from the cowl. You may just have to do a fresh air service which is a special foam that kills the bacteria and such that builds on the evaporator from it sitting.

Water pump problem?


You need to make sure you don’t have an air lock. Find the bleeder valve for the coolant system and release the air. If you can’t find the bleeder, find the highest hose for the coolant system and make sure coolant is flowing through it.
