FYI, I have not done this. I'm not if any 4.2L SC XF guys have. I looked into it but I don't have cooling issues. For a track car this would ideal. Mine is still a daily driver.

Well I fixed my dumb and am now working on trying to get to the other pump. Going from the bottom seems out. I got the skidplate off and I don't really have access to much of anything. I also don't remember being able to see the other pump when I replaced the heater one again, but I wasn't specifically looking for it at the time. I'm pretty worried I'm going to have to remove the radiator and/or fan to get to it, but we'll see.

Well, I definitely don't see another pump under this one (or anywhere near it). Any suggestions? I'm going to take the other airbox out and see if maybe it's on that side.

Nevermind. Looks like I found it. It's on the front of the radiator on the opposite side of the heater pump. You have to get the bumper off, but that was ridiculously easy.

For anybody looking to do it in the future:
Just some bolts on the top, unplug the front parking sensors on the driver's side behind the wheel well guard and the rest pops off (once you have the skidplate underneath removed.

Here's a pic of the pump:

I changed the charge pump today using this excellent DIY. Bigg Wills tutorial walked me through step by step and made it very easy. I bought the gates shrink clamp but just used the original clamp as I was able to get the hose on far enough for it to still work well. Also, luckily my wife and I like wine as it helped with the job. I used a wine cork to plug the upper hose and a rubber wine bottle cap and zip tie to cap the lower radiator outlet and lost very little coolant.

Thanks Bigg Will

Hey Anthony,

I'm buying one of these pumps, do you have a link to where I can buy the additional parts, the cable and connector ? That's it right nothing else is needed? I tried searching the part numbers from your pic but can. Find anything ? Thanks again!

It's a Mercedes Benz part so any MB dealer can get it for you.

And you can get the gates clamps on amazon. I bought them but just used the hose clamp.

The lower hose was really on there and I was worried about pulling too hard and cracking the plastic hose connection to the radiator so I bought a new one from jag first and cut off and replaced it.

Considering doing this "upgrade," and came across this vid. It's for an MB AMG E55, but it still gives some nice instruction on the pump swap in high def: www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzv5e7nACpw&t=180s

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I'm doing this job on my 2008 XJR and had a question about the MB connector. The MB electrical connector (coupling) referenced here does not fit the plug on the top of the pump. Am I missing something here? The part # is the same as the one I got.

I was under the impression the MB coupling is needed to connect to the top of the Bosch pump with the MB wires then spliced to the Jaguar wires that connected to the old pump.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, I'm used to just swapping out parts never modifying them.

Thank you!

My pump upgrade from July '17
I can't remember exactly because it was so long ago, but I think I ended up with a connector I didn't need, as the MB wiring was a direct fit to the pump. Maybe this pic can help somewhat?

Well the MB connector is/was a direct fit for the Bosch 010 pump when I did the swap, so I can't explain the issue your having.

Bummer, that's what I suspected.... it seems the MB connector I was given was the wrong one even though it's listed as being the same part # as in this thread. Hopefully the parts monkeys at MB just put the wrong part in the bag

Thanks for the help

I have the 09' XF Supercharged and have been dealing with the restricted performance issue for over a year plus. Eight months ago I had a mechanic replace the supercharger pump, or so I thought. A couple months back, I changed the water pump and I found what I thought was the supercharger pump. Now after reviewing this tread, I am sure that I found the heater pump, and pretty sure my local mechanic changed this out, instead of the charger pump, hence why I am still getting the RP and engine code P2601. So, I am ready to change to the '10 Bosch and I think I understand the connector issues but 1.) I am assuming that the previously provided MB part numbers are still valid (i.e. hoping hawaiianjag received mislabeled parts) and 2.) is there any thread out there that discusses the connector issue in more detail. Bigg Will's post are amazingly helpful but just trying to cover all my bases. I have the service manual and have already looked into removing the bumper. Frankly, I am pleasantly surprised as I would have thought it to be more involved process.

Also, anyone out there with a good source to replace the front five spoke (8.5") Volans wheel/rim. I have a previously repaired/cracked/now welded rim that is out of true and my wheel guys say better to replace at this point. Thanks. David

Can you post any pictures of the connector that you got?
I thought mine was wrong to but its "a bit fiddly" as the UK guys say!
You must disassemble the connector. Push the two female connectors into it inner part then snap all that back into the black plastic outer housing.

Also wanted to post the part number for that heat shrink Gates hose clamp.
It's a Gates Power Grip #32925. Grip range is 15/16"-1-1/16" . Turns out these are common and my local parts store keeps them in stock.

Also got my wires from Pelican parts for a bit cheaper price.



Also found the pump for $98 on EBay.
