just a reminder, this is a MY20 car, not a launch year car and the F type I spoke of was also the latest model year. That's my issue, why are the latest cars suffering this issue, my car is the post upgrade and is only 6 months old. Will have to wait until lock down is over to get it into the Jaguar dealership.

Our neighbour has had two sets of balance shaft bearings on his 18 reg Discovery. It made a whining noise inline with engine speed. All fixed now.

Hi Domfow, did you manage to get to the bottom of this issue and resolve it?

Spot on it's the balance shafts, going in July 20th for 2-3 days engine out job. As stated by capese21 my dealer has seen it a lot on the Late Land Rover cars with the D180 engine but not on the Jaguars. After 5 years in production, you'd have thought the ingenium diesel engine would now be sorted. My car is a motorway car daily doing 90 miles at 70 mph cruising in 8th, that is not going to stress the engine. I had a previous 2016 XE sold with 66,000 miles on same engine but in D163 tune,but no sound out of the balance shafts.

Faulty batch of bearings apparently & later design is better to. Although an inconvenience having later modified parts is a blessing in disguise. Keep us posted how it turns out.

Do we know when the faulty batch occurred?, as my car is a MY20 MK2 XE, registered new last October, I'm surprised those engines got into the new model?

I asked my Discovery owning neighbour. It may have been pacifying dealer speak to explain why they had to do the job twice. All good now & no recurrence.
