Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) Rear Jewelled Light Upgrade

If I was to recommend just one thing to modify your existing early XK8 or R (X100), to give it a much more modern appearance from the rear it would be a rear light conversion. Also adding a chrome boot plinth, rear spoiler and larger Oval or Quad exhaust tail pipes are other great improvements.

Earlier XK8 and R's produced from 1996 to 2000 (to Vin 042775) had a rather flat looking non jewelled effect rear lamp with no chrome surround.

Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) Rear Jewelled Light Upgrade Kit

New Backing Panels for Rear Light Upgrade

The rear light conversion involves the removal of the existing light and the cutting out of the rear mounting panel. This is then replaced with an original jaguar mounting plate copy to take the later style jewel lights. The light aperture is sealed and painted to make it water tight. Then the wiring is altered to accept the new light plug connections

The interior boot trim can be modified or a new item purchased to clear the new light covers to give an original look.

Jaguar XK (X150) Supersports High Grade Stainless Steel Rear Exhaust Sections

Jaguar XK (X150) Supersports High Grade Stainless Steel Rear Exhaust Sections

Like the earlier Jaguar XK8 / R (X100) models the new X150 2006 to 2014 with it's fully silenced exhaust system does not sound like the fantastic GT Sports Car it actually is. Especially at idle and low speed cruising the engine sounds too quiet and flat. The standard XK (150) has fairly standard Oval type finishers. Better to have the much larger and impressive Quad finishers as fited to the later XK models including the XKRS GT.

These high grade rear stainless steel rear exhaust sections with large impressive quad finishers are designed to replace the large and heavy rear exhaust box thereby providing a net 25 Kgs weight saving contributing further to the car's excellent power to weight ratio. The exhaust sections provide a louder and more sportier V8 growl both at idle and all through the rev range .  The car sounds and feels like a proper GT Sports Car and will not go unnoticed wherever you go.

The large rear quad finishers will not fit into the small recesses of the standard diffuser so we recommend also our new rear diffuser designed to work with the above system.

Oil Leak from Jaguar XKR 4.0 With the Mercedes 722 600 Gearbox

If one day you see that oil has been leaking from the gearbox on your XKR 4.0 it is likely that this is from the in-line electrical connector on the front right hand corner of the transmission. This will be due to 'O' ring failure. When doing this job I would also treat the gearbox to a filter and oil change if not done already. The image below shows the new replacement connector JLM21109 with O rings which were the cause of the leak on the old part.

In Line Connector JLM21109

Read below how this was replaced on Ian's 1999 XKR 4.0 with only 43,000 miles on the clock.

The image below shows the offending item in situ. It is a fairly simple but fiddly job to do.

Location of Inline Connector

The image below shows the tab on the side of the new fitting. This will be seen high up as fitted on the car. Hook something on to this and pull down, thus releasing the plug which simply pulls out.

In Line Connector JLM21109

The housing left in the box can be pulled out AFTER undoing the central bolt in the bottom. 7mm + long extension. The offending 'O' rings may or may not come out with the fitting. Clean inside the hole.

Inline Connector Removed

Assembly is a simple reversal after lubricating the new 'O' rings. It is fiddly to get things in the correct rotational position but the main parts slide in easily once lined up correctly. Remember to lightly tighten the 7 MM bolt and to lock the tab. Replace the heat shield and bracket.
