There is a smaller battery the other side of the big battery. If they are good then the car will stop-start (some have reported that if the a/c has lost its charge the stop-start will not work). However, some are nit keen on this and it is possible to nobble it.
I get brake judder on my XFS, given up trying to cure it, it's a "characteristic" of the car, seems quite a few XF's suffer this. But as you were complaining the discs are worn, you'll be fitting new ones anyway, see if the judder goes away!
This is reminding of a time 9 years ago when I brought home a 4 year old lovely X-Type 2.2SE Estate in mint condition with 134K on the clock. Joining a forum, finding out all about it, learning, getting the Jag workshop manual and wiring diagrams etc.
It is now on 296K miles. In that time I have changed the clutch/DMF 3times, the injectors and diesel pump once, brakes loads of times including calipers. Its still shiny, and still goes well and passed its last MOT with no advisories. I do all my own work.
Starting all over again with the XF..............
I too try to do all my own work, servicing and repairs, I have a loathing for most dealers, their charges and attitude to customers. I'd happily use a specialist of course. Ooooo, white, nice! My XKR is also white. Looks very, very nice.
Whoops, two images!
Anyway the "due for replacement" or "worn" thickness varies with the brake spec (326 mm, 355 mm, 376 mm or 380 mm) but it's the same across all of them - a whopping 2 mm less than new thickness.
I have commented before how this seems to be a ridiculously conservative "worn out and due for replacement" spec, especially for the 380 mm front discs which are 36 mm thick when new. Little risk that you could go to twice as much wear as this (ie 4 mm less thickness than new) with zero problems, with one caveat - in my experience and that of others the inner surfaces of the discs wear around twice as fast as the outers, so 2 mm worn would be roughly 1.3 mm off the inside and .7 mm off the outside.
Point is, these are the factory JLR specs so if any disc is 2 mm or more worn below new thickness it is officially due for replacement, no ifs or buts, and you should be able to legally hold the seller to that.
When I bought my old XFR a few years ago now the seller advised up front that the local JLR dealership had advised him it was due for new brake discs and pads so I offered $2,000 off the asking price and the seller agreed.
2013 XF Sportbrake. Occasionally, an Air Suspension fault will be displayed, sometimes, Adaptive (something) fault as well. When this happens, the driver side rear is very high, whereas the passenger side rear is very low. Cycling the ignition will clear the fault and the rear will settle...
So today was the day I decided to start going after a loose rear wheel bearing.
First thing: rear axle nut on 2011 Jaguar XFR is 36mm (probably 35.5 but 36 worked) - not listed in the manual
Make sure all the bolts were pre lubricated which made taking the brake caliper and bracket off really...
I see the locations marked in this linked post, but when I look under my car it's all covered with a plastic undertray ( apart from the cutout of the sill ( plastic side trim/bodykit really) for the factory jack on the seam. Looking at the dots in that linked post it looks like they would...
Just thought I would start a thread for the noise I can hear from rear while driving to have your help and record it for future problems other could have.
It started few weeks ago and originally was only noticeable in motorways. Now I can hear the noise from 30mph.
I did jack the car and spin...
I have a question regarding the outside bolts on my alloys. Some are coming loose, one appears snapped. Are they cosmetic and replaceable? Should it be an extended warranty repair item?
what could cause this issue? I’m wondering if the car is. Safe to drive?
