Hey Highhorse, thanks for responding,

I put everything back together and it runs great with great fuel trims (which means I put the cam cover back on correctly), but it's still making that...

+1 for Christopher's foreign car parts - I installed one of their kits a few years ago on an XJ8 and was happy with everything. I did the whole job, upper & lower tensioners, guides and chains. No...

Instrument Panel trim rings

I received the six trim rings from the UK today. The three large ones and the one on the clock fit snugly (friction fit), really don't seem to need any glue. They didn't move or make any noise when...

I went for an all too rare drive in my XJR today. I was supposed to just drive to get a haircut and back home so we can catch our movie on time. Instead, I skipped the haircut and just drove for an...

That's a beautiful car Patioboater! Very elegant looking.

These pictures are actually kind of lame because the light is coming from the wrong side; the car actually looks glossy and shines better...

A weak battery could also be responsible for codes on these cars. If the battery in one of these cars isn't in tip-top condition the electronics do NOT like it. Just something cheap to rule out...

Two potentially interesting X308 events today.

1) I bought some little self-adhesive felt stickers; round. I removed all my trim wood and strategically put them at connection points. Lots of...

I think you push it up a bit and then slide the bottom side out. In the picture of the backside of the new badge I'm not "sure" which is the top, but essentially the large plastic pieces on one side...

I think it was a pretty fair price. Like he said, the car doesn't need a lot of expensive cosmetic work and another set of wood trim was included! The tensioners haven't failed yet so there's no...

I agree with Jim. If the wood and leather are in good shape, and there are no neglect issues with the car, it's worth a bit more than your average X308. The XJRs are not as easy to find, especially...

Since it’s on the passenger side it’s on the side away from oncoming traffic. Maybe it won’t be a big deal. The beams looked the same on the garage wall.

When this hurricane is gone I’ll pull it...

It turns out the noise was due to a ham-fisted mechanic, both on the old car and the new one. ME!

The two 8mm mounting bolts for the evap purge valve assembly were too tight defeating the rubber...

I can't see a difference in the lenses from one side to the other. The bracket is different obviously, and that's what the assembly part number label is on. Someone told me the reflector portion of...

Hi Andy, I think you nailed it. The LNC4610CB is the European (ROW) model and the LNC4610AB is the USA/Canada market model. So, is there a difference that would prevent me from putting a CB...

If it's just the upper tensioners (secondary) then it seems a shame to sell it without fixing it first. I don't need it at all and I'd probably give you 1k for it right now, just as a parts car.

Well, I hope that 16 year old sensor is reliable then. Haha

Thanks for the input.

I guess if I notice an upward trend in temperature I can just check the trans cooling system to make sure it’s...

It took a lot of time and effort to clay bar my XJR. I didn't use a lot of force except in some spots but even though the kit came with two clay bars it really wasn't enough. They were filthy...
