Re: Rubbing Noise - Front Half Shaft

As my dealer is trying to force me to take my car back and give them the loan car back I suspect I will be going down the independent report on this half shaft problem. I feel strongly about the way it is all being brushed under the carpet. Once I have had the car back stripped down and had the rep...

Re: Rubbing Noise - Front Half Shaft

It’s true, your legal relationship is with the dealership. Or, if the car was bought with finance, with the finance company. Usually, if the finance was arranged through the dealership then the dealer will provide you with a one stop shop and act on your behalf with JLR Finance. But if you financed ...

Re: Rubbing Noise - Front Half Shaft

Okay, I have just been onto TOPIx. The earlier F-Pace technical bulletin JTB00577 has been withdrawn. That’s why Renesis in the only guy on this forum to have had the revised mild steel component installed. A new update, SSM73717 was issued on 22 January saying that, due to supply problems, the camp...

Re: Rubbing Noise - Front Half Shaft

Hi All, Experiencing the same issues on my 3.0d purchased in June last year (replacement). I had been advised last week from the tech guy at the dealership that the bracket “fix” is no longer a recommended option from Jaguar and has been pulled. I was expecting this to be done on my car back in Jan...

Re: Rubbing Noise - Front Half Shaft

I would certainly recommend involving Auto Express as in my own case JLR don't like negative publicity and I know that the Watchdog article AE published has caused quite a stir at the JLR press office. office. office. I have been a subscriber to AutoExpress for more years than I can recall. TBH, if...

Re: Rubbing Noise - Front Half Shaft

Another note is it only the 3.0l models it’s affecting ? Mine is a 2.0l and the speed it starts is around 30-40mph and I read others it’s anout 25mph It is uncertain. The 3.0d V6 is the heaviest of all the engines. Combined with the larger rim sizes (21” and 22”) it seems that this combination is t...

Re: Rubbing Noise - Front Half Shaft

Thank you to all who have taken the time to post a reply, offer some advice and share their wisdom. Here’s a flavour of the email traffic between me and JLR Customer Services (Amelia) before they decided to tell me that they now had absolutely no idea when the parts might become available.....

Re: Wi-fi hotspot abroad

I wonder if it is dependent upon the terms of your data SIM? I have a Velar. I am in Austria right now and our EE data SIM worked like a dream through the Netherlands, Germany and Austria. EE allow you to use their EU national networks as if it were the UK. Identical. The lad had his iPhone hooked u...

Re: F-Pace v Velar

My Daughter has a RR Velar 2.0D 240 R Dynamic and in my opinion it is far superior to my 2.0 Portfolio F pace which is rather strange as the cars share the same platform. I drive the RR regularly and compared with the F pace it is quiet and well insulated from wind and road noise,the instrument pac...
