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.

Changed the other mirror lens this morning, but this happened:



Wont go back in either, the whole cover retention layout leaves a lot to be desired. Hoping it is not tipping it down when I get home from work this evening so I can have a look with the UV light whilst it is nice and dark to make the light easier to see if it does...

Anyone have the instructions for replacing the lower piece, like the cap replacement? Can see the order it goes in then hopefully...

If not I think I will be taking the whole mirror off

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!

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:

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.

Mine failed on the end tank capping. As you can see, when it popped, it sprayed out over the fins.

Also, its sat between the charge cooler radiator and the engine radiator, so not an easy one to see.

Cheers Matt, to be honest looking more and more like it is just going to be dropped at a local AC specialist

So I've ordered the replacement snout and the solid coupler from powerhouse, rather than pay the massive amount from Jag for the revised snout kit, I paid less than half for a brand new original part number and will replace the coupler.

Need to acquire a fair few more parts for that work, but now the coupler was listed and I bought it I can start getting the parts as and when I fancy...

The 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.

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 seller

Yes I would probably gone for that one with a solid coupler as well. Although there is some anecdotal evidence to suggest these are noisier than the OEM revised coupler.

I don't think that would matter if it lasted the life of the car. I should be getting mine back tomorrow after its gone through a QC check at the indy.

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

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.
