2002 Jaguar X-Type Question: Light Assembly Replacement

 

Question

This model has a really rough ride that jars the lights and makes the connectors weak after a period of time. Jaguar repairmen are few and far between in smaller towns, and it is hard to get a diagnosis and some reasonable work done. Driving a Jag does not HAVE to mean you are loaded. Does anyone know how to replace the light assembly WITHOUT going to a shark dealership?

    I recently replaced the headlight assembly on a 2002 Jaguar X-Type. Bought the left and right headlight assembly from Amamzon and took it to Maaco to install. Total cost $750. Jag Dealer wanted $1,500. Don't take the car to a mechanic, take it to an autobody shop.

    I had the same problem. Needed to replace the assembly on both sides. Dealer wanted $1500 p/l. Found OEM assembly on Amazon for $360 a piece delivered. As crazy as this may sound. I took the car to Maaco and they installed it for $125. Saved about $655.
