Turn the front wheels all the way to the right to replace the left light. There is a cover at the front of the wheel well. You have to remove the panel which is situated in front of the front wheel, inside the wheel arch, this will give you access to the lower bulb. Maybe found it easier to take the headlight unit out completely and replace the bulbs on the bench.To remove the unit you undo the two screws on the top of the light and loosen the screw through the panel in the wheel arch and the headlight will slide forward and out.

To take off the bulbs, after to remove the cover, there is a "cap" that is basically the back of the headlight. Unscrew the cap... you are at the back of the bulb. It is held in place by a metal retaining clip. Remove the retaining clip, unplug the bulb, replace the bulb, replace the retaining clip, screw the cap back on and replace the wheel well cover.

Hope this helps.

A grinding noise 47-53 mph on slight climb appearing to come from o/side wheel or drie shaft.The brake pads are good. This is on a 2001 xk8 Jaguar and only occurs at the mentioned speed and not when...

Check the Wheel Bearing and the hubs as those models having common problem on the Wheel bearings as well as the Bearing carrier. Try to investigate ASAP as the Carrier might get broken and will give you big damage.

Need source for new 1997 XK8 convertible front coil springs


Yes front coil springs are what you need !

I think the spares situation for Jaguars, is disgusting with the main dealers.

I have been trying to source them myself, for about 2 weeks, and only found ****, painted up second hand ones.
I will keep trying, and let you know if I am lucky and find a source for genuine new springs.

Best Wishes

XK8 abs module

We have the same problem with our BMW. Dealer quoted close to $1500, with a one year parts warranty. Go to Module Masters at

They show detailed info on how to remove your unit, and will rebuild one for a 2001 XK8 for $150. The unit for our BMW is $300.

I have heard great comments about Module Masters. Well worth a shot!
