SOURCE: my parking brake will not relase on a Jag xk8.

I worked in a Jag shop back in the '70's in Los Angeles, but I'm from New England, where this is a BIG problem, unless you use the parking brake ALL the time.  Actually this is true for all vehicles!
If the case is that you don't usually use the parking brake, and then you go to use it, it will sometimes lock on due to rust, corrosion and dirt in the cable.
SOMETIMES, if you are very lucky, you can drown the cable in WD-40, soaking it several times a day, from inside the car, and under the car as well, if you can get to it.
Each time you do this, hold the release button and work the lever over and over so that maybe it will release.
If this doesn't work, then you have to replace the cable.
Sorry that it's not an easy fix.  Ultimately you might have to have it towed to a dealer or shop to replace the cable.
Final thought...  sometimes the problem is with the levers on the brake assemblies, that can stick.  If you can get to them, give them a slight 'tap' with a hammer to see if they will suddenly snap open.  Make sure the brake lever is down and the button is held in by a helper.
If this is the case, a VERY light squirt of lube at the pivot points might keep it from sticking again, but be sure to use the parking brake often.
If the car is an automatic, the device that 'locks' the transmission when it's in 'Park' is called a parking pawl.  It is a small steel pin about 1/8" to 3/16" that gets shoved into a parking gear slot.  This is what keeps the car from rolling, so it's VERY important to use the parking brake to assist this, especially when someone bumps the car a little when they are parking their car!  Oh, and the parking pawl is most times the first thing into the tranny when assembling it, so it'a lot of work to replace one.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: jaguar XK8 PROBLEM BOOT WON'T CLOSE

In the trunk on the right side behind the carpet is the hyrdaulic unit. There is a T fitting on it. Turn the T fitting counterclockwise to release pressure. Tighten it back up and try the top again. I have had this work for me several times.

I'm not 100% sure on Jags, but on a domestic vehicle you have to clear the code with a scan tool. You should be able to call any Jaguar service center and get a quick answer.

Can you help with instructions on how to install a mesh grill and spoiler on a 2003 X Type Jaguar..... Thank You


i have fitted an "admesh" brand mesh grille and spoiler on my fathers 2004 X type.

the mesh in the spoiler would have just fitted over the existing plastic grille using the supplied clips, if the original grille had not been damaged. i just removed unscrewed the original grille and fitted the mesh one using the same fittings.

for the main grille, i removed the grill from the car (4 screws) and cut out the centre plastic vanes before fitting the new mesh one to it using the supplied clips. i then screwed the whole unit back in place. it took about 1 1/2 hours from start to finish for both mesh grills.
the instructions were quite clear and most helpful.

i do not know which kit you have so do not know specific fitting instructions, but as far as i am aware, most kits would fit in a simillar way and should not be to difficult to fit with a little care.

1998 S-reg jaguar XK8 drives perfect until reverse is selected then goes in to reduced performance mode. using a fault code reader fault code P1646 and P0706 were read.


Seems likely it is just a transmission cable adjustment needed. Please see my whole note (not a musical whole note) above under Clarification...

I'd go to this site and read the info... http://www.europeantransmissions.com/Bulletin/DTC-jag/Jag/307-01.pdf

Luggage LIghts do not light up when opening trunk


The Microswitch is actually attached to the Latch mechanism But I would suggest that you mark the position of the latch BEFORE removing the bolts as there is quite a range of adjustment available when the bolts are loosened!
