Default Knock Sensor 1997 XJ6 Location

Anyone know the location or have a photo of the knock sensor on a 1997 XJ6 4.0 in-line 6cyl?

Thank you Bob. I am assuming Drivers side? Is there two? a front and rear? Do you know of and documentation, picture views or service bulletins? I am new to Jaguars and still awaiting service manuals to aid me.

Hi Phdruss,

Just to try to complete the picture, this diagram may help. It only shows one knock sensor (part 17), but there are two, one for the front group of three cylinders (Bank A), mounted between cylinders 1 & 2, and one for the rear three cylinders (Bank B), mounted between cylinders 5 & 6. The sensors are well hidden by the intake manifold.



They are on the left side of the engine as viewed from the driver's seat (driver's side for LHD cars, passenger side for RHD cars).

The electrical connectors are the same type as on the fuel injectors. Here's a photo courtesy of our forum sponsor SNG Barratt (the plastic portion of your sensors may be a different color).




Cheers,

Don

DRIVER'S side and PASSENGER'S side is a rather pointless description due to the fact that these cars are commonly manufactured as RHD and LHD.
Which driver's side???????? The right or the left??

I learned long ago to state RIGHT or LEFT to be absolutely sure of the location on the car.
