All I get when I click on the link is a topix page asking for the vehicle info which only directs me to a page with a photo of the vehicle, no hand book link that I can find.

Mike, when you reach the page with the pic click the "owner" link at the top right and that will open a page with the links for the handbooks.
They sometimes take a minute or two to load!

Default Viewing & Downloading Handbook sections

I created these 6 JPEG files that show how to access the Jaguar Topix webpages (to select Jaguar model series & Jaguar model year, then open the owner's menu, then owner's handbook webpage, then the 7 sections of the driver's handbook).

How to open the attachments in this post:
Web Browsers Internet Explorer & Firefox - right click & choose "Open link in a new tab", when the new tab is loaded - click on it to view it, then click on image to enlarge image.

Google Chrome web browser - just open the attachments and a new tab is loaded and opens for viewing, then click on image to view it at its actual size.

Here is the XJ X308 1999 fully assembled Owner's Driver Handbook PDF file that I created earlier from the topix website:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/a1glty7tiu...s%20manual.pdf

I also found this XJ X308 1999 Vehicle Care Handbook PDF file somewhere on the internet around the end of January this year:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/grqvg520q5...20Handbook.pdf

Also looks like you can find some of the other years Vehicle Care Handbook PDF files on the internet using search term "jaguar xj vehicle care handbook"
It brought up the following results:

XJ 2002 Vehicle Care Handbook on the Jaguar.com website
http://www.jaguar.com/content/market...e_Handbook.pdf

XJ 2000 Vehicle Care Handbook on the Jaguar.com website

And the 1999 Driver's Manual covers all years? There were no changes to the Manual for say the 2002 model year?

Default Jag manuals

What about a manual for the XJ6? Also, is there a blog for a 1997 XJ6? I couldn't find the location.
Thanks, my friend.

Hi
I do not know if the XJ6 (X300) owner handbook pdf or vehicle care handbook pdf are available here on the forum, I do know they are not on the Jaguar Topix website (I tried searching for X300 - 1997, 1996 and 1995).

You can purchase all of the handbook pdf files for your 1997 XJ6 (X300) as a download from jagdocs.com for $6.81 - Here is the weblink (when webpage opens change the currency from British pounds to US dollars - look at right hand column - Currencies Title has dropdown menu choices below Title) :

A fine is a tax for doing wrong
Sometime a Fine is a Fee like Pay the Fee and you can speed, no different than Green Fees except you pay in arrears.

Default XJ8 (X308) Manual

Hi everyone

Many years after the original post, does anyone know where I can get an electronic (PDF) manual for an X308?

Jagdocs was my go-to resource but, much to my disappointment, they seem to exist no more.

Happy to pay a (nominal) fee

Joe

You, sir, are my hero!

Thank you so much.

It took me quite a few days to find the Driver's Manual and Care Manual, but I got them. Thank you very much. It will help me in keeping my 1998 Jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas in good shape. I sure hope to have enjoyable rides in it next year.
Once again Thank You!
