Re: 21MY electronic handbook now available

Not sure when they changed from ply to fibreboard but my 2018 MY19 is fibre and I noticed they had also done away with the handy little rectangular cubby just inside the boot on the left hand side. I used to keep my pump and a plastic mac in there.

Re: Unable to start

First place I’d be looking would be battery connections followed by the starter motor or maybe solenoid or could be anything in the electrical circuit. Any loose connections in the high current circuit between battery, solenoid and starter motor will draw loads of amps and prevent the starter motor ...

Re: 21MY electronic handbook now available

Anyone know whether my spare wheel and boot floor etc would fit in the new model? The spare wheel will fit but they have changed the position of the battery on the MY20 and it's now right at the back. They have added a bracket which fits underneath the wheel. The locking bolt and collar which hold ...

Re: Service

You can have it serviced wherever you like as Rojo said as long as you use correct parts. It depends on the mileage as to what parts will be needed, it will certainly need an engine oil/filter change and could be air and cabin filters too and possibly brake hoses, brake fluid, pads etc etc. My under...

Re: The Cat gets the Mouse

These pests do get everywhere. Reminds me that some years ago a friend of mine bought an SLK. She took it for a service and when she went to pick it up the garage asked her if she lived near any trees. The air cleaner itself was well chewed and the housing was half full of the remains of nuts. :lol:...

Re: Exhaust Rattle at idle revs (not the usual parts)

That really is a hell of a din. I can't believe that two JLR dealers, supposed experts on these cars can't find the problem and have told you that you will just have to put up with it. If the engine is ticking over without any excessive movement, then as other have mentioned, it could be exhaust mou...

Re: Caliper painting

Not a huge fan of painted calipers but of course, it's personal choice, however that view from your house is just fantastic especially with the Firenza XE outside :) :) :)

Re: Spare wheel

Something I would not be without personally. I see that one comes with a jack and brace. You can of course buy a wheel and tyre and source your own jack and brace which is what I did when I bought mine in 2016. I also got an extending brace which is useful to give you a lot more leverage. You will n...

Re: The long wait

Hmmm, I placed my order Yesterday and delivery date is stated as end of January. But I am waiting for a more definitive date.. hmmm bloddy hell, I don't want to wait that long! EDIT: I re read properly in that you have CHOSEN to wait for the 21 plate. I also went for the P250 S R Dynamic, Carpathia...
