Full ashtray, broken mirror, sounds like it's time to get a new one m'lud! :P

I've known a rich person like you get rid of a 3 month old Audi Q7, and all that had happened was 10l of liquid tar roof paint, moved in his boot a bit before the lid fell off. ;D :-X

I've emailed a 30 second video of the noisy but inoperative wing mirror to a local Jaguar dealer. He should be able to tell me if the fault is covered by the warranty.....or not.

If not, labour charges are 135 plus VAT..........162 P/H. :o :o :o :-X

If they can't change a door mirror in under an hour, then you have bigger issues than 162 ???

I'm opti-mistic it will be covered by the warranty, Al. :y

I dread to think of the price of a new door mirror. :-\

On the X-type, I got the same issue and opened it up to find that the gears weren't meshing. The mechanism was encased in a clip-together plastic box, of the type that the motors in wind-up Christmas cracker toys were. I re-meshed the gears, clipped and glued the poxy plastic box closed and had no more issues.

Maybe worth a look if Tata won't honour the warranty.  :y

Very much so, Jimmy. :y

The idea of paying some ridiculous figure for a f*ucking mirror doesn't bear thinking about.

Does it operate correctly when the engine is running, and you powerfold them (probably press both buttons either side of jotstick)?  If so, might be battery related, if not, buggered mirror.

My mirrors are different, and I know the glass alone for mine is over 150

My EPC is too old to cover your car Opti, but 5 yrs ago, a current XF mirror (electric, memory, self-antidazzle, powerfold) was 400, part number C2Z17762  (which may or may not be right for your car)

That's quite reasonable for a jaaag.  ;D

Nope........no movement at all. Just the vibrating noise.

Jaguar have not got back to me. :-\......I suppose they think 162 P/H isn't worth getting out of bed for.

Cheaper than GM ;)

TBH, some parts are quite reasonable. And then their are XJ front pads ;D

I've emailed a 30 second video of the noisy but inoperative wing mirror to a local Jaguar dealer. He should be able to tell me if the fault is covered by the warranty.....or not.

If not, labour charges are 135 plus VAT..........162 P/H. :o :o :o :-X

For a man of your means that makes more than that per second 24/7, are such trifling costs worthwhile spending time & fretting over m'lud? ??? Cough up and spend the saved time with the SIL or your chambermaid. ;)

It's not that our Lord Opti can't afford it, it's just that he's as tight as a mackerel's arse!  :-X

He got shot of his Merc because the maintenance costs scared the crap out of him!  ;D

Maybe the Jaag will go the same way?  ???  :-\  After all he still has the mighty Signum!  :y

I think we all suffer a bit from that illogical type of tightness. We will spend thousands on a car, but baulk at the cost of repairs/maintenance.
