I suppose you could just keep a splash of petrol in the tank and switch back on the fly for when you need the extra 20% performance for a 'safe overtake' ;)


That's exactly what I do with the S4. I keep a quarter tank of optimax in it so Maximum GLFery is but the press of a button away.

when you crack off the nut and break the seal to change the filter be aware that there is lpg under high pressure in the line back to the tank and its solenoid.

 

first time you crack off the nut you will crap yourself.

 

If the solenoid at the tank is fucked then you may have an issue as the entire tank is going to vent itself, the o ring in the filter will be hanging out (they do that pretty much as soon as you crack off the nut) and you will be unable to seal it back up again. + LPG is very cold, if it does vent do not get in the way of it

 

easiest way to do it is run the tank until empty. then leave it idling on LPG until it stalls. work in a well ventilated area before you replace the filter.

 

There is a nice magnet in mine which was covered in fur last time I changed the filter! where the fuck does that come from?

I actually do just that - and of course it always starts up on petrol.

Mine neither-it's a modern Prins VSi setup so (I believe) relies on water temperature to vaporise the LPG.

 

Out of curiousity, has anyone changed the filter on a Prins VSi setup? I did it on my old Jeeps OMVL system but can't find how to do it on the Prins system.

 

To echo Richardthestag on the Jeep I closed off the valve on the tank and ran it til it stalled-this took a LONG time, I then cracked open the filter and shat myself at how much gas came out...

Hmmm a new caliper from Rock Auto is less (including shipping and taxes) than breakers want for second hand ones.  New ones are £400+ from UK suppliers.

Mine has started making a whiring noise from the rear belt that drives the high pressure diesel pump.

It's almost certain that the bearings have gone dry in the tensioner.

To get the rear belt and tensioner off it seems that a sound deadening bulkhead panel has to come out, and to get then off the A/C and coolant have to be drained.

It worth putting LED bulbs in the rear number plate illuminators because they bulbs run hot and burn out the bulb holders.

I still have a bad back from converting the screen to Android and fitting a towbar.

 

This was useful:-

I suffered partial brake failure on holiday, because the vacuum pump has filled up the pipe to the servo with oil and this had rotted out the gromment.  The brake servo currently has about 1cm of oil sloshing around in it.  Landrover, Peugeot and Citroen all did safety recalls because of this but Jaguar did not so I am currently discussing this with them and VOSA.

 

and this was fun:-

That's a lovely motor and benefits from the minor facelift they did for the diesels (removed the rubbing strips from the sides, acoustic glass and one or two other things).

 

Hopefully with mine being a petrol it won't fill up the servo with oil :)

 

The Android screen conversions look interesting but probably more than I have the time for at present - I like the standard one more than I expected.

It has quite a few advantages:-

 

Navigation with Waze which is essential in London traffic.

Internet radio so I can listen to any channel, anywhere, even when gangster rap is being transmitted on Radio 4 frequency in Wembley.

Spotify when I get bored of my music collection.

 

The only downside is that the screen isn't really bright enough in the summer.  On the jag forum we are trying to engineer a bright LCD so that will get fixed.

I ripped part of the undershield off on a kerb at the co-op the other day. After I stopped swearing at myself I realised this was a good chance to fit the new headlamp burners and ballast I had ordered, and to take a look at fitting the new bonnet catch and see why the headlamp wash doesn't work.

First job, remove the the bumper - pretty easy as it more or less fell off.

There are two bonnet catches - the lhs is beneath a security cover and has a switch attached. First thing I dsicovered is that mine has a "spare" switch, with a piece of pipe cable tied into it to fool it into thinking the bonnet is always closed. Since the lhs catch doesn't lock into place it seems this was needed.

20171109_132023.jpg

I have a new catch so hopefully won't need both switches when I reassemble.

The headlamp washer pipe has a valve that splits the flow left and right, it's broken.

I removed the rhs headlamp. Once inside I dismantled it and discovered solenoid - it was jammed. Evidently the car has bi-xenon lights that weren't operating as intended on main beam.

Last night's hilarious fault was the refusal of the right hand indicators to quit except when I moved the stalk to indicate left.

 

Pretty glad it didn't happen in busy traffic.  Usual Jag electrical cures weren't working (stop and start, wiggle stuff etc), but I did "fix" it by giving a violent shaking by the stalk earlier.

Whoever wrote the workshop manual for the X350 diesel is a f*&#!"$ idiot.

 

To get to the diesel pump belt it says that you have to remove the bulkhead panel behind the engine.  The problem is that there are coolant lines and aircon lines that go through this and so you have to degas the AC and drain the coolant.

 

I went to a local garage and have the AC degassed and then go home and started tearing the car apart.

 

If you look at this pic

 

DSC_3045.jpg

 

you can see the big gap in the foreground of the pic is where the cabin heater filter box was.

 

This box came out in a few minutes with only four bolts and then you can easily get to that rear belt from the side.  Removing the bulkhead panel is totally unnecessary.

That "specialist fast release penetrant" WD40 wouldn't free off a sledge stuck on a near vertical ice slope.


Agreed. Glad to know it wasn't just my technique.

Update - as the MOT looms (next week) I thought I should finally smarten the jaaaag up a bit by refitting the bottom of the front bumper and the undertray.  This is nothing at all to do with hiding any leaks or anything.

 

As usual with stuff I do to old cars, it was a swine of a job, but I have now done it with stainless fittings to boot, so at least the poor sod who dismantles it at the Jag breakers will have an easier job.

 

 

I love the NACA ducts to channel air to the front brakes.

That oddly enough is exactly the last thing proletariat masses see if they don't clear off the highway in time for such a class vehicle to pass.

Ha ha - more like "look at this wanky old grandad-mobile, let's get in his way".  I am not sure if the "personal" plate, (not to me - it came with the car) makes it better or worse.

Yeah I suffered the 'grandad car' thing a few times when I had a Jag, didn't take long to get past them normally though.
