12 hour shifts, 4 on 4 off sounds tough, no time to get used to the shifts and then off, must be hard I'd imagine!

a quick update

all fitted in three hours start to finish , probably not a world record, but im happy , and its damned hot out there, though no where near the 45 degrees when i was in Oz in January , lol
180163


front bumper off, not easy , but then again , not too hard once you find all the fixings, ACC plug is into a blank holder on the beam , unplug and untie to allow enough to mount in the middle, new bracket Tek-screwed into the bumper beam centrally ,

180166


180164


any rusty bits got a clean back and spray with stone chip, and so did the new bracket and fixings, the three mounts are dimple snap fit, one has a thread to adjust the angle of the radar module
then all put back together

180165


the ACC radar cover easily unclips if adjustment is required

having a beer now, and its my 31st wedding anniversary today , so will do the CCF tomorrow, lol

BB;)

If you read back through this thread you'll find that BB has provided a lot of info on the different variations.

im afraid i dont know which one you may need, as i have a 2015 car, and as you say , there are different ones, so some research is required by you to find out, its all part of the fun of modifying....

Thanks but I asked because there wasn’t anything about the radar itself.
i did , i said it was the newer type rather than the older large radar box with separate module for the pre 2012 cars that is mounted in the corner of the lower grille, but you may need to confirm with your VIN , they also fitted them to Range Rover Evoque, but there may be a firmware version issue ? i took a punt, you may have to ?

Cx23/dx23-9g768-a* will be suitable for all facelift xf.
Thanks again. This is what I was after.

also a quick question. Does ACC On XF brakes when the car in front slows down?

the ASL on downhills just gives me warnings which is pointless. It doesn’t intervene

BB can you confirm the bracket for the ACC radar please? I couldn't see it mentioned anywhere in here :)
