How to Remove the Rear View Mirror on a Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100)

Jaguar XK8 XKR Rear View Mirror

The Jaguar XK8 XKR rear view mirror is of the electrochromatic type and is operated by a control button at the base of the mirror. When switched on, the mirror darkens automatically to prevent glare from the following vehicle's headlamps and clears when light levels return to normal or when reverse gear is selected.

Where electrochromatic door mirrors are fitted, they are operated in conjunction with the interior mirror by the same control, and function in the same manner.

These mirrors 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. Also the last 6 digits of your car's Vin will help us identify if your car also has electrochromatic door mirrors. There are several part numbers for the XK8 / R rear view mirror.

There is not a lot of information on the web on how to do this job.

See below for the basis steps on how to remove the roof console and then the rear view mirror:


XK8 Parts Review, Timing Chain Tensioner Problems

The good news is that XK8 4.2 engines fitted to cars from 2003 onwards are on the whole virtually bullet proof with all the problems associated with the earlier XK8 engines fitted from 1996 to 2002 having being resolved. For earlier XK8 owners like me, there are some serious issues but thankfully all can be resolved.

Read below more on the cause of the timing chain tensioner problems, photos of worn parts and information on how to sort the problem out with the latest 4th generation replacement kit:


XK8 and XKR Parts Engine Number Location

This is a 10 digit number and for my 2001 XK8 this is recorded on my UK registration document. That is one place to look if you have a UK Registered car.

Read below more on how to find the engine number, what this means and also whether you have a Nikasil or non Nikasil engine:


Jaguar XKR James Bond Bonnet Vents

Jaguar XKR James Bond Bonnet Vents

Jaguar XKR Bonnet / Hood Vents as featured on the Zao green Jaguar XKR in the James Bond film, Die Another Day. These not only look fantastic but will help to reduce heat in the engine bay.

These stunning vents are made from the highest quality high temperature fibre glass with exceptional attention to detail. The base includes a rubber seal so no damage will occur to your paintwork. The mesh insert is hand crafted from top grade stainless steel and electro-polished to give it a pristine shine which will also complement the nose cone mesh grille.

The vents are supplied with all fixings and if required can be painted to your vehicle colour.

James Bond XKR Style Bonnet Vents

Please note this is one of the few bonnet vent styles that can be fitted to an XK8 bonnet when the required holes are cut in the bonnet. If required, we can advise on where to cut out the required holes. Most other styles of bonnet vents can only be fitted to the XKR bonnet with the lip / seat that the standard and new bonnet vent styles need to fit into.

If required we can supply a replacement bonnet with the required holes already in place to accept the bonnet vents.

Price for a pair unpainted £135.00 + Shipping and VAT.

No VAT to pay if you live outside EEC Countries.


Thanks for viewing.
