SOURCE: where is the battery located on a 1997 xk8

Haven't tinkered with that year but previous Jaguars had the battery under the shelf behind the driver's seat.

SOURCE: Need source for new 1997 XK8 convertible front coil springs

Hi

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

John

Hi, 1997 Jaguar xk8 convertible. Drivers seat electrics not functioning where is the relevant fuse?


Unfortunately for many of the Jaguar models there is only one fuse for all the functions of each seat. The fuse locations can be found in the electrical section of the owners manual or Roadside emergency service section of the Vehicle Care Manual. In a 2000 XK8 the fuse for the drivers seat is fuse #1 (20A) located in the drivers side fascia fusebox (at left end of instrument panel). Not sure if it was changed from 1997 but doubt it.

Had problem of seat fuse blowing on XJ8 every time the headrest adjustment was attempted (shorted motor). Very tiring to deal with but be aware if fuse continues to blow you might have a motor or wiring problem. Good luck.
