Re: Climate Control Vacuum Lines

I had similar symptoms, ages ago with my 3.2 Sovereign.
In my case it was the vacuum line on the engine bay side of the bulkhead that got damaged and thus blocked all functionality in the car interior...

Re: JLM11253 NLA -waht to do?

...next research would be to find out who makes the pump in the first place... I've seen ATE labels on a few XJ-S (same period, similar system) units... Some lateral thinking: what about getting a used brake/ABS unit (shouldn't cost a fortune!) and have the pump motor refurbished? That, plus a few ...

Re: JLM11253 NLA -waht to do?

You mention 'new reservoir': was it the brake fluid reservoir or the pressure sphere that has been replaced? If it's a new sphere, then your symptoms indeed suggest a failing pump, if it was the reservoir: I would also have a look at the sphere's condition... I checked JCP, and I understand your con...

Re: My first XJ40

Andy is a former Jag engineer, who worked on -amongst other things- engine management. The bracket is a modified version of the OEM bracket that changes ignition timing by a few degrees, resulting in slightly better ‘oomph’ and fuel consumption. I’ve had them fitted to my X300 XJR and to a 3.2 XJ40 ...

Re: Sorting the boot out.

Will taking the rear seat out reveal anything? It usually will: the majority of the bonding is behind the rear windscreen, as seen from outside, you should be able to see much more of the bodywork with the seal removed. Condensation COULD be part of your issue, but bear in mind that this does requi...

Re: Sorting the boot out.

Where do I go?? Any decent car glass specialist should be able to do this. Ideally one with 1980s/'90s Jaguar experience, but imho any experienced car glass outfit should be able to cope... Even the bodyshop for my Insignia (front & rear windscreen edge rust/welding) hired a generic car glass c...

Re: Sorting the boot out.

...to rectify properly, it’s going to be a screen out job? Afraid that that's a ýes'... :( Are genuine window seals available. The rear windscreen has been labelled as 'backlight glass'... Seal part number is BCC9214 for vehicles up to VIN687219, and GMB9024AA for later cars. Both part numbers are ...
