Just smear a little vaseline on the thread and you will not have a problem.HARRIER said:I have just put on the Jag genuine valve caps from approved accessories brochure. Metal caps look great but as stated they can fuse due to metal reaction against the threads on the valve stems.
The approved Jag caps are a ridiculous price but then again they are approved so no fusing issues and no warranty issues either.
I have no experience of the ones in the Jaguar brochure but would be extremely surprised if they caused the same problem as the ones from EBay, so I think you would be safe to use them. That said, I can definitely say stay away from the EBay ones.arc said:Maybe a silly question but am I correct in assuming the discussion only concern the nope OEM caps sold on ebay not the the types sold in the XE accessories broschure?
You are certainly not kidding when you say the Jaguar ones are very expensive, which is the reason I purchased the EBay ones in the first place. How they can arrive at a price of £35 for 4 x valve dust caps absolutely beggars belief. I shall be sticking with the black plastic ones from here on in.HARRIER said:The jaguar one's are very expensive but then I am not expecting problems as a genuine accessory part.
