Default XJ40 Gearbox removal

Can anyone tell me how to disconnect the gearbox connection shown on the left here please? I have managed to disconnect the muliplug and also the gear selector. Also what is this connector and what does it do?

Many thanks.

Hi Gerard,

If you are referring to the rotary switch, it is protected by the stamped steel cover. Remove the two 10mm hex head screws and the cover will come off. Then it will be apparent that the rotary switch is secured by one or two additional screws, at least one of which has a slotted hole to allow adjustment of the switch position. Make alignment marks with a center punch or paint so you can reinstall the switch in the same position.

With the screws removed, you can carefully pull the switch off of the gear selector shaft and tie the switch and its harness out of the way for transmission removal.

I have photos of the switch and the electrical connector, but unfortunately the large images are still down at Jag-Lovers so only the thumbnails and descriptions are currently visible, but they may be of some help:

Cheers,

Don
