Re: High level brake light

In theory, all accessories and standard equipment from different territories should be plug and play/ have the plugs in the main loom.

Chris, i would this theres model year specific versions of these parts, as always for 40. Its unlikely what fits 93-94, will fit 3.6.

Re: Heat issues

It sounds like the blend flaps are not operating within the HVAC (Hester box on the middle of the dash that houses the heater Matrix and Evaporator).

There are illustrations on this site somewhere showing the operation.,

One time I had this issue, the fault was traced to the climate control ECU.

You are forgiven. G Reg is 1989/90, so it’s the first production year of the 4.0 models.
They even carried over the 2.9 engine until the 91MY cars arrived.

Re: Sorting the boot out.

Firstly look under the rear deck with a torch, look fit any rust/ obvious problems there. Like in Mike’s picture. You can also remove the screen surround trim to inspect for holes from there too. Note- the trim can be tricky to get back in, but if you are employing someone to take the screen out/ ba...

It’s only the 3.6/ 2.9 that has hydraulic boat Girling brakes.
Mikes is an early 4.0.

Re: Daimler XJ40 4.0

I need to take the car back into the garage next week to have a final snag with the brakes sorted. After having the new reservoir sorted there was a huge improvement but, initially when starting the car, I had to wait for a minute for the ABS and brake light to go out and then she was fine. However...

Re: XJ40s in Germany

When I did the trip, we were still living on Devon, so we had a good 4hrs+ to even get to Dover. So we did the trip over 2 days, leaving on a Thursday morning, staying overnight on Germany on route. We still didn’t arrive in Jork, until about 6pm the Friday evening. Remember. Whatever google maps te...

It is a lovely photo. And I like how they are trying very hard to make the setting so English looking but yet they ...
