Hope you all are still enjoying an XJ40 and the new year will bring us enough health to keep getting the most from our Jaguars while spending time with the family.
I can not believe my last post here was more than a year ago. Apart from becoming my everyday car, and my wife finally accepting her, few things have changed about my XJ40. The family estate diésel X-Type is starting to feel tired, though stills looks new, and is now having longer "time off" at the parking place I rented for the XJ40.
My XJ40 is due for maintenance this year, assuming a service once every two years is enough bearing in mind the average 10000 kilometres I drive the car during this time. This Jaguar has only seen dealer maintenance, and I intend this circumstance not to change while I own the car. The problem is that, and this is a single side opinión, the Brand, Jaguar, is different, and customer service at my usual dealer is no longer the same. Earlier this year, during an MOT check, I was told there was an hydraulic leak. Took the car to the specialist where I also wanted the dampers, and the horn, to be checked.
The "high" tone horn was changed, and the dampers as well. Yet I did not like the horn sound, so I bought on eBay an X300 horn set. When I was changing the horn I realized the dealer put two "low tone" horns, hence the annoying noise when I needed it. Then, finding the car behaviour "softer" than before, and slightly higher at the front than at the rear, I wonder if the new dampers they used at the dealer were the correct ones.
The part number for those they used were: MMD2140AB for the front dampers, and MNC3540AA for the rear ones.
Question: Can anyone confirm if those are the correct dampers for my 3.2 Sport? With new dampers, what could be the reason why the car height is different front and rear?
Thanks in advance for your opinions and inputs about this issue.
