A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Jaguar XK

Jaguar XK Problems

Door glass issues may be corrected with glass adjustment

Various issues with the door glass can be caused by the glass being out of adjustment, not a faulty window regulator. These issues include a knock, squeak, or binding condition when raising or lowering the door glass. Our technicians tell us that window adjustment should be checked first if any of these symptoms occur.

High Brake Pedal Effort Required to Start The Engine

High brake pedal effort may be required to start the engine. Our technicians tell us if the vacuum supply to the brake booster is correct, adjusting the brake light switch and recalibrating the anti-lock brake modulator pressure sensor will generally correct this concern.

Creak type noise from front brakes

A creak, click, or squeal type noise may be noted from the front brakes under light brake application. Our technicians tell us that lubing appropriate brake caliper and pad surfaces and installing new front brake pads should correct this concern.

Jaguar XK Recalls

Parking Lights

The front side lamps may turn off unexpectedly after approximately 5 minutes of operation. Dealers will update the software that controls these lights free of charge to resolve the concern.

Incorrect Tire Pressure Information Label

The tire pressure label on the body of the vehicle may not indicate a proper air pressure for the spare tire. Dealers will inspect the vehicle and attach a corrected tire placard label free of charge to resolve the concern.

Potential Loss of Vehicle Control

297 vehicles are being recalled because one or both rear tow adjustment links may come loose from the rear sub-frame. These adjustment links are used to help control rear wheel alignment. If a tow link were to come loose a loss of directional control could result, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the nut and washer assembly on the rear toe links to correct this concern.
