    Hello Frank,
    I have been following your excellent instructions on top hose replacement. I have the new hoses in place and I am re assembling the car.
    I ran into this wire over the passenger side speaker and body brace and I don't know what it is for.
    How do I send you a photo?
    Can you help?
    Thanks, Ron

    also h a fox tried to tell me there was nothing wrong with the xf they sold me even though the brakes kept coming on of thier own accord even at high speed. 7 complete sets of brakes inc. discs in 4 years but i did manage to get jaguar to pay for them all in the end but it took jag assist coming out and following me to cheltenham until the handbrake came on at 60+ miles per hour and even then the jag tech at fox said" it cant do that"the jag assist guy " i know that , you know that now go and tell the ******* car because i have just witnessed it. the car was taken off the road for 12 weeks while they sorted it and it turned out to be a break in the loom which was cross contacting at the wrong time. Only took them 4 years to sort by which time i had had enough so got rid of the car once it was fixed

    sorry its been a while but my father in law died so the car has been on back burner. they say that the bcm they fitted is from a coupe and cannot be reprogrammed to a convertible i dont know if this is right but am hoping to find a solution. No I will not use any jag dealers the idiots in cheltenham tried to tell me my s type needed 1650 worth of work doing all of which i completed for about 100 then the one in droitwich told my friend he needed a new viscous fan and showed him the movement in it with the engine stopped until i said that its a viscous fan and will always move until the oil gets warm that is what its supposed to do. they had quoted him over 600 until that point. A meet up would be nice I always try to support the local car shows through the summer although the tewkesbury one was cancelled this year due to bad weather so maybe at one of those there are always plenty of jags being this close to coventry

    Hi Frank sorry i have just found your message and thank you. I just wish my poor old xk8 looked as good as your xkr in fact i wish it was an xkr but its the best i can do at the moment. I have only just got the car running and on the road after buying it as a non runner so still lots of work to do so I may well be shouting for more experienced help quite often. so thank you in advance for your offer pershore really is just down the road from me as i am in sedgeberrow outside evesham
