Number plate

Post by 1stjag4me » Sun May 06, 2018 8:03 pm

Had my XE R-Sport 1 week and came home today to find that my front number plate has fallen off. Obviously the double sided sticky tape used by Jaguar isn't that sticky!! Would've thought the plates would be screwed on with a £38k car!!

Bit of no more nails seems to have sorted it, but might go back to dealer and ask them to screw them on.

Oh dear. Sorry to spoil your day, but a lot of the XE is "stuck" together, not screwed or bolted !!

That's down to the dealer who PDI'd the car.
Both mine have had the plates screwed on front and rear.
Take it back and get them to do it properly.

Thats weird as the rear has fixing points in the metalwork of the boot similar to Rawlplugs in plastic.

I guess the reason could be that they stick the number plates on is so they can be easily replaced with your personalised plates !!
