Usually fresh air enters a car somewhere near the bottom of the front windscreen. I cant see any intake anywhere on the XF.

Thanks but where on the car is that? Could it be sucking air from the inner wing area?

I can't see where tge intake is. I am getting exhaust fumes sucked in when first started. I suspect a leaking gasket joint from jlr replacing the O2 sensor and 3 gaskets. If the intake is in the engine bay that doesnt seem clever.

Ait intake is in the engine bay. And on the positive note if it wasn’t there, you wouldn’t have known you have a leaky gasket

Why do you need it? If it’s to replace the cabin filter, just search on youtube.
It’s behind glovebox with an access from foot well.

At the second attempt at finding my source of exhaust fumes in the cabin, especially on starting, jlr found it. They blew smoke into the intake and also up the exhaust tail pipe with the other sealed. Tech I got to speak to confirmed it was pouring out a joint by the cat and scr at the front. He explained one pipe had a boss on it that should engage with a slot in the connecting pipe. Muppet who refitted it after changing the O2 sensor had clamped it up without it being engaged in the slot, so not sealing properly. I had asked it checked when serviced a couple of months back but they said no problems were found. Obviously they didn't check properly. I had kept smelling it and had to eventually insist that I could also definitely smell fumes at the back of the passenger side engine bay with the engine running and bonnet open.

Some other evidence of sloppy standards these days on some other issues I spotted too Shouldn't be happening at nearly two hundred quid an hour for labour at jlr prices.
