New Members (and some established ones too!)

It is very helpful if you add a signature to your details including the year, engine type and which variant you have. This will then appear at the bottom of your posts. Often problems/issues can be replied to far better if we know which car you have to start with. If you don't know how to do it, go ...

Mine is easy.

Few Jaguar marked bits under the bonnet though.

Re: Recharge aircon yourself

The stop start will be stopped from working with the aircon on in a mode that it is pumping out at a high rate. However if it is set to just a chill it will most likely keep working. It is meant to be inhibited when the aircon is on. If you have cold air from all vents it is working correctly. When...

Re: Jaguar step up to the plate

Yes, your situation is bad and I see you have got in touch with CRC at the end of last month.
But this isn't your thread.
Someone posts a positive thing and the "joy vampires" descend to bring it down.
It's a shame that good news can't be appreciated any more.

Re: Recharge aircon yourself

As has been said before.
The manual advises that loss of refrigerant should be no more than 3% per year.
That should give quite a few years before performance drops off and a recharge needs doing.
If it's more than that then there is a leak and needs fixing properly.

Re: Jaguar step up to the plate

Nice to see a good dealer doing the right thing. They are out there believe it or not. :D Of course all XE's are totally unreliable and falling to bits at the side of the road everywhere. It says so on forums so it must be true eh? ;) A bit of inconvenient truth: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/cars/news/...

Re: 2021 F Pace

Interesting.
Being an American site it won't mention the two new diesels recently announced for the JLR ranges.
150 and 200hp I believe.
Interesting that the straight six fits into the engine bay of the F-Pace which is near as the same to the XE.
:D

Re: What's up with map downloads

Mark, are you talking about the download for the pro from the "Here" site ? I have had issues as well and have given up for the time being. Broadband is a bit down and I'm having it looked at but still 30Mbps. I downloaded the latest tool as well and it was dead slow. Got about 5% done and it kept s...

Re: Jaguar Breakfast Meet

There has been talk of having a special XE day with the possibility of getting them all lined up on the grass in front of the museum. Watch this space. Has been since I first went in April 2016 but it never seems to happen. Best thing is to get there early and do it yerself. :lol: 20160604.jpg
