Passenger Door not thunking

Post by meandraft » Mon Jun 29, 2020 11:19 am

Something has bugged me for a while now. My passenger door doesn't close with a "thunk" like the other doors, it sounds very "tinny". As I've had so much time on my hands recently I thought it was time to investigate. Armed with the diagram on how to remove the door panel, downloaded from the F Pace Forum, I located all the necessary screws to reveal this;

I then removed the bass speaker and peered inside to reveal this;

The bar you see going across the door panel hadn't been bonded properly so vibrated when the door was closed creating the tinny sound I'd experienced. I wedged a screwdriver between the two and squirted in some black silicon sealant and removed the screwdriver. Result! The door now closes with a thunk😁

:o

I wish I could do such things myself... from my experience I usually break stuff so I shouldn't try this :D

Well done. I wonder how long it would have taken JLR to suss this one out.

They would probably have said "you get that sometimes sir" then charged you £200 for the privilege.

"It's a characteristic" is, I think, Jaguar's technical term for such issues.

Wow, I have exactly the same problem. I had blamed the wife for slamming the door too heavily 😳

Is it possible to post the link to how to remove the door panel please.
