I disconnected my dead battery in order to take it to battery shop for replacement while waiting for ride to take me to dealer. I had closed my trunk in the meantime, but now can not get in the trunk - my remote and trunk release in vehicle do not work with battery disconnected. Obviously, there should be a manual way to get into the trunk to replace the dead battery

Whe cold start car there is sort of alight tapping sound on the passenger side of engine after a few minutes it seems to go away -- what could this be

I drive a jaguar XK8 1998 convertible. The car is driven often, pretty much every day. There was a hurricane with a lot of rain, and when I got in the car, there was condensation on the inside. The car starts normally but the dashboard lights don't come on, so the car won't shift gears. If I manually make the gears shift I can drive around fine just without a dashboard. Checked all the fuses they are good, and I can make the lights come on so I know they work, its not a problem with the battery either. Any ideas?

Each time I try to close the convertible top, the motor runs extremely slowly and final latching of top is very slow and difficult. I would like a step by step instruction of how to change the fluid in the windshield reservoir.

The fluids are fresh. I think the hose may have come off somewhere near the latch because that's where seems like all the fluid came from. How do I get the top back down?

The top wouldn't go down and all the fluid came out into the dome lights. The back windows won't go up and the passenger window repeatedly lowers when I press the convertible button. The fluid was fresh.

How to re set drivers seat on xk8 jaguar 1999

After droping car off at dealership for radiator hose they called and told me the hose was ok. It was reservoir. I said it was the hose . They said they were sure.I told the I had cut hose to add a 3way t in the line and I knew that was leaking and I wanted the hose replaced.he said nope it was reservoir . So they replaced that...then on way home it got warm .fluid 3/4 of gallon low on coolant....they had me bring it back on trailer..I said replace that hose...they called back....now its water pump.I paid 1700.00picked it back up..drove 2blocks turned around and took it back.car was running ruff.....now they called me andvwant another 500.00 because my hose needs to be replaced.you tell me ...is this right....I told them 5 times it was the hose that needed replaced...oh and the water pump is leaking now...the new one...all it needed was the hose replaced as I stated...

reservoir for hydraulic fluid is only about half full. How do I replenish/replace the fluid? ( Believe this failure doesn't make the latch connection drive the rear windows back up.)
