Re: Boot lid adjustment

Hi all

My car went to bodyshop for a bit of work. Whilst there, I asked them to take a look and they sorted it for me :)

Re: Boot lid adjustment

Cheers for the replies

I can't understand how this has happened either, but it sits proud and is allowing water enter the boot. I'll take a look at it this weekend

Re: 3.2S Won't Behave/Starting/Running

Just an update on this. I'd booked the entire weekend in the shed, specifically for swapping the head. Glad to announce not only was permission granted, but I now have a smooth running XJ40. I am immensely proud of myself! I've followed various threads on here, plus the the 2 workshop manuals. Slow...
