Reported by graent for the Jaguar Vanden Plas

Handbrake stopped working; continuous error alarm if "hand brake" is tried, disconnect battery to stop alarm but error light on all the time. I have been told the brake module is seized and needs to be replaced. Can someone please provide insight and an estimate of repair cost. Thank you

While getting my tires changed one of my lug nuts was broken. Had to go to another shop to loosen the rest of the lug nuts and then return to have my tires installed.

The three piece lug nuts are fragile, and if the tires are not rotated frequently, the lug nuts can seize. Lubricate the threads when changing tires and purchase several spares to have on hand for an emergency.

One wiper arm became loose, collided with the other wiper and ejected the wiper blade. Watch to make sure your wipers are parking correctly, if one is up it means that it is probably loose.

Open the hood and remove the plastic cap on the wiper arm end with a small screwdriver. Loosen the wiper arm nut using the apprpriate metric socket. Adjust the arm to the desired park position and tighten the nut, replace plastic cap.

The brake pressure accumulator, a component of the antilock brake system, frequently fails. This may cause a stiff brake pedal, forcing the driver to apply excess pedal pressure to slow down or stop the vehicle.
