It was . . . . the . . . . .

. . exhaust! More specifically, and ironically (I think), the quad tip. :rolleyes:
Ever so lightly, the nearside one was rubbing/bumping against the inside of the cutout in the valance. I only sussed it when I noticed a bright line in the dirt on the stainless tip. There is not a mark on the plastic bodywork. But after moving it away, squeak has gone and sanity has returned.

Isn’t that just a typical example of how well sound can travel.
Well done

You can nudge the tips over by undoing three bolts that hold the silencer box.

But you’d need to remove the tips to access the bolts.

As it’s been pointed out before, there isn’t a single XJ that has left the factory with straight pipes or straight tips.

Probably because they know there'd be the "F'ing Annoying Squeak" previousy mentioned :D

It only needed a few millimeters so I was able to "adjust" the tips with a grunt. Plus did the same the other side to balance them up. If anyone insists, I can post a photo . . . . :eek:

Surely you will need some new quad pics anyway John?

Otherwise, if you post quad pics from your current library, you will just “know” that they are a few mm out.
