Jaguar XKR OEM Quality Timing Chains and Tensioners Replacement – Job Successfully Done !

Jaguar XKR OEM Quality Tensioners and Chains Replacement - Job Successfully Done !

If it has not been done already, this is one of the top jobs to do on the 4.0 XK8 and XKR's. With Pierre our good customer in Sweden we wanted to sure he had the best quality parts, correct tools and best professional advice on how to this job.

From Pierre's email:

"Hi Dave, I just want to let you know that we have successfully replaced all the tensioners, chains, waterpump, thermostat, seals and gaskets etc. I am very pleased with the parts, recommendations made, tools and the guide you provided so I have recommended you on Jaguar Forums. I strongly advise that you all do invest in this job, if you have not changed the old ones already, in my cases two of the old "slides" where complete cracked and broken, so it was just a matter of time before something serious happened".

Thanks Pierre I am glad all went well and that you now have complete of mind that this problem area has been sorted and to prevent major costs in the future.

Both of these great looking cars have been upgraded and maintained to a high standard with many parts being supplied by DCR AutoParts.

Clive's car is a rare XKR 100 limited Edition built to celebrate the centenary of Jaguar's founder, 500 'XKR 100' coupes and convertibles combined total were made in 2002. The XKR 100 featured all the available options and an Anthracite paint finish,Recaro seats, 20-inch BBS Alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, specific dark wood dashboard panels and GPS. As it was produced only after 2001 all the engines were fitted with upgraded metal chain tensioners and fuel pump, solving the common engine failures due to the weakness of plastic and semi-plastic tensioners.

XK8 XKR (X100) New Leather Rear Seat Covers Ready to be Shipped to Brazil

Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) New Leather Rear Seat Covers Ready to be Shipped to Brazil

Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) New Leather Rear Seat Covers Ready to be Shipped to Brazil

This is the first time we have been asked to supply new leather rear seat covers for the XK8 / XKR / X100 model. Most of the enquiries and orders are for the front seat covers as you would expect as the XK8 and R's are essentially a 2 + occasional 2 sports car the soft front seat covers get worn with age. The space in the rear of the car is limited and only really suitable for small children hence the limited wear and tear. The rear seats in our 2001 are in almost 'as new' condition.

This set of new rear leather seat covers in Oatmeal is being shipped to a customer in Brazil where it is perhaps the effects of the Sun / UV that has dried and faded the leather. The rear set will complement the new front set that we supplied several years ago.

Thanks for Visiting.
