Re: Lumbar support does not work

Hi Oliver,

Great to hear thats you fixed the problem. Makes a world of a difference if the air bag in the seat is deflated.
Enjoy!

Re: Lumbar support does not work

Hi Oliver,
I had the same problem on my 93 DD6. The switch breakes inside and will only operate into one direction or not at all, and as you, I had an inflated seat that was not comfortable. Order a new switch, problem solved.

Re: Oil Cooler leaks v12

Hi,

I have a similar problem, with the joint of the across pipe Nr 3 in the picture leaking. it connects to to the pipe going to the radiator. How do you unlock the joint? I have cleaned everything up and the leak comes clearly from the joint.
Any input very much appreciated!

Thanks

Re: No time waster please?

When I sold my last XJ40, I had a guy who drove for a 150Km, to come and see it. After 5 minutes the car was sold. I told him what the weak points were (smokeup on start, a rusthole in the footwell, and that the high beam was not always working). He was surprised that I mentioned all these points, a...

Re: Xj81 Running Rough on idle

Yes I did, but was not very successfull. First I realized that the spark plugs I ordered were according to the NGK Website not the correct ones, which ones do you use for the V12? Upon wanting to check which plugs are installed, my toolset failed to have the right socket to get them out. So in terms...

Re: Xj81 Running Rough on idle

Having read the posts, I will go forward with following measures: - Check that all ignition leads are mounted correctly and are properly attached - Remove all spark plugs and and throw some new ones in - Double check that the dizzy cap is clean and dry (replaced it before it went into storage) and w...

Re: Xj81 Running Rough on idle

Yes I did. But still not sure about the topic of the wax bulb. Maybe I am just misunderstanding this. Had the car running more or less normal, without throwing an error code. Then I let it idle for .5 min, and the error is back on.

Re: Xj81 Running Rough on idle

Thanks for the reply's on my idle issues. Having read through several posts, I understand that the AAV is a hot candidate for my problems. As i understand it can be cleaned, as per a procedure mentioned in a post by leo-denmark. Now I am a bit confused as I read that there is a wax/oil in the valve ...

Xj81 Running Rough on idle

My 94 Xj81 just got motd after sitting nearly a year. The car was in good running order when parked but has developed over time a habit of stalling when idle, and often only running at 300-400 rpm when cold. Once warm it’s all good, and the car idles at 620 rpm. No VCM code. Now the check engine lig...
