you might want to try a black vinyl wrap over the chrome. So much cheaper with nice results and less effort.

Periodically, I share my Dropbox folder, which has a collection of documents relating to the F-type. Most of them (but not all) have come from this forum. Any time I see something that might be nice to have or useful, I grab it and stuff it in this folder. Examples: OzXFR's service manual, brake sizes, speaker sizes, service indicator reset procedure, etc. The 'Wiring Quick Reference.PDF' is an eye opener...

Feel free to grab whatever you like. There's a lot of interesting reading here. The 'Varta_H8_battery_productsheet_595901085D852.pdf' is, as best I can tell, the OEM battery for our cars. Maybe.

Hi TechnaBob, I'm new to the forum, and would love to get my hands on some of the information you had in your Dropbox. When selecting the subject, I get a 404 error. any way to make them available again? Many thanks!

Cool

SS4PK, (and perhaps others on the FT Forum) I noticed that you have a '16 RR Evoque. What can you share about your experience? Have not owned a LR or RR, though lots of Jaguars, with which we've been throroughly pleased. Limited research warns about their dependability, yet the only Evoque owners forum that I have found thus far has only "niggly odds / ends" complaints. My go-to Jaguar mechanic mentions leaky windshields, panoramic tops, early brake failures, faulty turbo / exhaust connectors, and other items currently escaping my memory. Thanks in advance for your insights, recommendations.

Default Replacing Start Button/Switch & Park Button on Shift Lever

Forum members have been great finding information about replacing the Start button and the Park button on the automatic shift lever. Both have a tendency to lose their finish and look worn, but are easily replaced. This post is just to summarize the information and provide some pictures of the installation.

You can use the part numbers to find the parts on the internet, e-Bay, or your dealer. Costs can vary a bit and there may be shipping and/or tax, depending on your source.

Start Button/Switch - Part Number: T2R18771 Approx Cost: $26.50

The easiest way to remove the old button is to drill a small pilot hole in the middle, insert a drywall screw a couple of turns, and just pull it out. There's a connector on the back that pulls off. The new switch just slides in.


Some have used less destructive methods to remove the old switch include using a pry tool (like used to repair phones/mp3 players, etc) around the edge, or even dental floss wrapped around the outer lip.

Park Button - Part Number: LR086213 Approx Cost: $7.00

Originally, the word was that there was no replacement part for the "P" button on the shift lever - you had to replace the entire assembly which was expensive and fairly labor intensive.
It turns out, Land Rover uses the same assembly and DOES have a separate part for the "P" which is rather like a keyboard key cap. Removing it is as simple as inserting the blade of a small screw driver at the base and giving it a little twist to pop it off. The new button just snaps in.

If you want a little extra protection for your new buttons, spray on a coat of clear Rust-oleum before you install. There is a version that specifically works on plastic - satin or semi-gloss finish.


Note the small screwdriver blade inserted at the bottom edge.

Shift lever with "P" button removed.

Finished job.
Hope this helps.
