Re: Vacuum Mounts

I do not know any detail of how these mounts are constructed, but would imagine some sort of piston/diaphragm inside which damps the vibrations.

Incidentally, I read somewhere that the 3rd service (March 2026) also includes a change of spark plugs and also a ...

I've just plugged a random XE vehicle's reg number on jaguars website for a service plan and it's showing me £1612 for three years?? That's ...
