Electronic Parking Brake EPB Jaguar Type 2004
The parking brake motor sits sideways just above the differential. The differential actually has to be lowered to get it out. I climbed under my S and lubed the cables up with silicon lube before the weather got bad.
When a new motor is fitted, set up the hand brake slack.

Check with chevy a dealership service (phone call) , there are 2 different types if your car is an automatic. If your car is a standard , it could be gear lube , or even Automatic trans fluid.

SOURCE: Handbrake adjustment 1955 X Type Jaguar

There really should not be any adjustment necessary, the parking brake is self adjusting. When you first install new pads It may take several puls of the lever to get them set up.

The cables MUST be absolutely free moving, for the system to work.

The adjustment as pads wear is inside the caliper itself and it is automatic, there is a little lever on the caliper and it moves the pads ahead every time it is pulled. This lever can become sticky and not return after it is pulled. you can free it up by removing the lever and then removing the rubber dust sheild behind it. Then you clean and lubricate it.
When all is moving freely, the arm should spring back against a hard stop each time the cable is pulled.

There is an adjustment on the cables under the car, just behind the centre console. It normally does not need adjusting unless you replace the cables themselves.
To check the adjustment, you need to make sure that the little levers on the rear calipers are fully returned to their rest position, and make sure the handle inside the car is down. Then adjust the nut to take up the slack in the cables.

I dont think that they can screw up the calipers inside. I have had them apart and there is really nothing to bust. I suspect very strongly that the levers on each caliper are not moving freely.

Most places dont understand all this, even the dealers, so they sell you new cables and calipers. I know for a fact that you can make it all work if you get everything moving freely.

Electronic handbrake will not release Jaguar S Type 2004


Common problem - normally caused by low battery voltage. Disconnect battery for 10 mins (MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR RADIO CODE) reconnect battery - then follow instructions on dashboard to reset park/brake. Use this method for all p/brake faults as 95% of the time it resets them. Hope this helps - good luck.

Motor mount, front right, solid or hydraulic?


Hello wrygrl...The OEM (orginal equipment) passenger side motor mount for the 1988 olds ninety-eight was a hydraulic type. After market "solid" type mounts are available for replacement...either type will work. Shop around and get some price quotes, i believe westar makes a solid type mount that sells for around 22 bucks.
Hope this answers your question. Have a safe and happy memorial day weekend.

Jaguar x type rear brakes change


On the rear brakes on this vehicle you have to screw the calipers in.

As the post above states for solid caliper pistons (which this vehicle has on the rear), there is a tool for this and you can rent it at AUTOZONE. ALSO REMEMBER, if you turn the brake caliper piston Clockwise and it does not go in, turn it COUNTER CLOCKWISE. I cannot remember which side is counter clockwise, but I think it is the left hand side (as you sit in the car).
