Our Jaguar dealership wants to charge me $2,400

Our Jaguar dealership wants to charge me $2400 for brakes which doesn't include turning the drums. Can a regular guy like me that changes his Ford's brakes do this job or can I take it to any commercial repair shop to get it done cheaper than the dealer?

I had mine done in local repair shop in the UK using Jag parts came in well under $600 pads only (not rotors). At your price i'd do it myself. I have put the details for 2003 X Type up on my website its rough and ready but hope it helps. Jag recomend use of special service tools 206-080 caliper piston retractor and 303-588 damper remover ,

Trying to get brake drum off right wheel klf 300 kawasaki 1986

Sounds like a rust problem! Get a lump hammer or 8# sledge hammer and tap the drum all around on the outside of the drum. Try to rock the drum foreward and back (turn it) when you take a break from beating it with the hammer. When you get it off, completely replace both brake systems on that axle. That includes the drums and shoes!

Check it out. Under the passenger floor panel you will find two relays above the computer box. Pull them. Check them. One of these is to the steering lock bypass which is a $19.70 part at Napa. I went through this for a week and a half and refused to get taken by the dealer for 1400.00 dollars and GM's bull s*-! Recall. Check it and you will be driving more than 1.5 MPH.

Hand brake wont switch of

Call the Jaguar Dealership about your problem. Jaguar issued a TSB about electric brakes applying and not releasing.

You should be covered for free. . Another problem was transmission engaging reverse when accelerating away from a stop.

This is a safety concern and can cause an accident and injuries in both cases. Your dealer can resolve these problems with anupdated programming to the cars ECU .

I have changed both rear callipers as the handbreak adjustment arms were seazed I also changed both disks and pads but the hand break won't grip? Do I need to adjust the cable tension under the car?

This should have electric hand brake.

Check with dealership as some models of Jaguar have a safety recall for rear brakes being applied without notice and at speed !

Sometimes upon braking to full stop, there is a thud maybe coming from the rearof the 2005 Jaguar S Type. Any suggestions?

Brakes may be sticking a bit. Do you have 4-wheel disk or drums in the back? This is more common in drum brakes that are not self-adjusting properly. If you have drum brakes, check to see if the drums are snug to the hub. If not, adjust to snug. If you have disk, check the parking brake adjustment (does it pull up far to lock?). If you need instructions, let me know and I'll try to look them up for you.

Get the items as needed for changing the brakes are not that hard at all. Take the rotors and the drums to any NAPA store of one that will machine these for you. If not machinable they will advise you on a cost for replacements. You can save a whole lot doing it your self. Call around for the best pricing and availability too
