Couldn't Pick My New (67plate) XE

Post by Kennl » Fri Aug 10, 2018 7:34 pm

Supposed to pick up my '67 plate XE R-Sport today but told Jaguar had stopped all cars from leaving dealerships until a new part was fitted to the exhaust/emissions system. The salesman was a little unsure of the detail but that is his understanding of the problem. Apparently applies to XF's as well. Has anyone else come across this. Ken.

How frustrating to be so near but so far! Hopefully they will source/fit the part soonest. Be most interested to know what the "new part" is and its part in the grand scheme.
Out of interest, is it petrol or deisel?

The problem is they need to change the bearings on the balance shaft. It appears they were noisy. Changing them will be carried out if a customer complains of a noise which corresponds to the ones they have been told by Jaguar to expect, whatever they are. Glad it’s being done before I get it.

Many thanks for updating us. Wonder what the noise sounds like and I ask because I suspect something is noisier in mine than perhaps it should be but then again reading this forum is likely to make you manic about the slightest thing if you are not very careful! ;)

Apparently I should have heard it on tick over/pulling off.
