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. ;)



Both. :)

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


Taxman scares the crap out of me. :(

Piss poor customer service as usual.

Besides, they have probably found that if the wait a week, the warranty will be up :-X

Dealers (of all marques) are disgracefully bad and mostly incompetent.  My own experience of Jag dealers is only Stratstone in MK, and they are unbelievably bad on servicing - rude, incompetent, and have have low standards.

If other Jag dealers are as bad, then people won't use them (bar those that think "great service" is a machine cup of coffee and leftover cake), and Jaguar will lose customers.

I've just been informed the fault will be repaired/replaced under warranty.

Should save me a bob or two. :y


She is booked in to see 'the mirror doctor' next week. Should take no more than a couple of hours, apparently. :)

Just checked here, not a known fault with a TSB and would be covered under warranty, you can disable the auto fold in the mean time using the vehicle settings area of the touch screen

Yes......I have done this.  Stationary mirror still make a noise like a vibrating sex toy for about 20 seconds when I open the door though. :)

The closed/open park position switch is not being tripped hence the controller is chucking power on to try to get it to the correct position.

Is it easy to move by hand?

If its currently in the fully open position and still making a noise then the actuator has been damaged and is no longer connected, at least the ECU turns the motor function off after 20 seconds!  :y

Expensive to fix if not covered by the warranty?

You can't get the fold motor on its own that I can see (you can get the glass movement) so its complete mirror assembly only but loads available second hand (if you were to pop the mirror cover off you would see the part)

Dead easy to fit, states 0.4 for labour

Ahh the joys of Omega ownership, you can pick up an entire spare mirror for pennies. I bought a replacement glass for a tenner, after a taxi driver decided mine would look better in 5 bits rather that one.

When it happened the mirror was hanging by the heater wires, it popped back in nicely, even with glass cracked. Should be able to pop new one and off easily.

Then there is the fact I was a bit annoyed it happened, then after about 5 seconds just strugged my shoulders and kept on driving. If I had an XF-R of your vintage I'd be super annoyed if might was taken out or just broke like yours!
