Jaguar XK8 XKR XJ8 and XJR Rear View Mirror

Jaguar XK8 XKR XJ8 and XJR Rear View Mirror

These mirrors especially with earlier cars can lose their electrochromatic coating. This is indicated by a distinctive split in coloration - top clear and bottom coated darker. Sometimes the fluid in the mirror leaves a large oval shape on the mirror. The fluid is toxic and if it does leak will eat into the plastic on the J Gate. If this happens then you need to either replace with a new mirror or find a good used one. The key here is to indentify which type of connector plug you have - white or a yellow. This will require removal of the roof console. See our technical advice section on how to do this. Also the last 6 digits of your car's Vin will help us identify if your car also has electrochromatic door mirrors, auto dimming, rain sensing etc.
