Do you have the part number, will be helpful to others.It's only the pumps on the facelift models that are failing, jaguar will only fix for free if there is still an approved warranty on the car. Of course the gradual deterioration peaks just at the end of normal warranty. Earlier face lift models are failing in greater numbers now and most cars will suffer eventually unless preventative action is taken. This is as simple as changing to the new upgraded pump before the corrosion gets into the CJB or risk a hefty bill. The new improved oe pump is around £70 and less than 1hr DIY, so a worthwhile fix. I did my 64 plate last year before the pump failed, even though it is still under approved warranty.
If Jaguar have been servicing the car it might be worth contacting Jaguar CR and push for a contribution given it's a known fault.
I read your fix, well done, but did you stop the water going in when you fixed the pins? If not it could be back to bite you again at some stageHi Alex
For what it’s worth, I have been hit with the same issue on my 2012 ( facelifted ) XF. I’ve a separate thread on this, but in summary, I was able to solder the affected pins ( sitting on Junction C5 in the central fuse box). With a little further assistance from Michael (08292), was able to sort a final issue on the DRLs. Total expense? Beer money for my nephew for his soldering skills...
This is the OE part number C2Z30987 about £65+vat there is also an after market available which is C2Z30987A about £40+vat. I got mine online from Justjags they do both but I paid the extra just in case lol! It came in a Jag box from France but the pump was made in China as was the one I took offDo you have the part number, will be helpful to others.
Has the screen been replaced? This is the normal culprit. If so, you should be chasing the cowboy screen fitters.Hi guys, I have a 2013 Sportbrake with the above fault, that’s going to cost me over a grand to fix, my question is shouldn’t Jaguar stump up the bill for this as they know about this problem? Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated ��
The CJB is on the right of the drivers side footwell behind the fusebox cover. The culprit is the large pull out connector at the top left (C5), pull the plug out and check inside the socket for water/ corrosion, you may need to lift the chrome sill plate and ease the side trim off to get a decent view. If it's still dry in there, happy days you just need to replace the screen washer pump in the drivers side wheel arch, less than an hour and you are home and dry job done, some also install a break in the wires to stop any future water creep. But I figuered if the new pump doesn't leak why bother. If it's wet in there the saga may continue and need more action.Does anyone have any pics of exactly where the CJB and wiring along which the water runs are located? Started looking in the workshop manual but only have the one for the pre-facelift diesels so it may be different in my car.
If I knew where to look I would consider having a poke and perhaps doing something preventive to stop any water reaching the CJB.
