MY 2012 XF S Portfolio Ultimate Black
It is lower LH side of the Radiator. You might find an odd spot to see the pipes through lower grills on bumper if you couldn’t see them from engine bay.
Not there Jordan. It’s only visible from the grill under number plate or the one on left hand side if possible at all. Mine doesn’t have auxiliary radiator fitted to LF windows so I can just see it there. But it’s easier from center lower grill. Like this:So had a quick look earlier, the gas from factory for air con has a dye in with it (who would have thought JLR would actually help the end user) so got my UV light out:
No signs of it, but I didn't jack it or anything as I've not long got home and don't fancy it!
If you remove LF airbox you might have some chance. You have to remove under body tray if you want to see it from under the car.Can't see from either of those points, acc blocks centre and the other side has a plastic guard behind it... Will have to get under it and see then
I bought the complete kit genuine JLR it is just the original part number and not revised, it comes with the replacement bolts and pipes too. The whole snout is already built with the pulley on the end, bearing and coupler etc. I think it was so cheap because it is the original one and not revised and probably takes up quite a bit of space for the sellerThe original kit from Jag is a new complete snout with everything replaced. You just bolt in straight to the charger so I guess the difference in price is to be expected plus Jaguar tax.
Yes I'm intrigued to hear the difference. Truth be told I was just glad when he checked the chains and said they where all okay. That's not to say I'm not pleased the dealer coughed up for the repair relatively easy.Yeah the engine isn't particularly quiet anyway so I'm not too fussed, especially when it will last my ownership and likely the car life cycle relatively cheaply.
That's good news, should be nice with the work done, interesting to see how quiet the engine is with the work done
