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 be 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.

Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) New Replacement Vehicle Car Handbook

Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) New  Replacement Vehicle Car Handbook

It is surprising how many XK8 / XKR owners (including myself before I managed to buy a used one!) do not have this handbook as part of the guides originally supplied by Jaguar. Either it has been taken out of the car to read and not put back or has been mislaid. It is a top level guide to understanding and caring for your XK8 and XKR. It will save you time and money if you follow the guide and undertake some of the basic checks and maintenance yourself. Also you will have a much better knowledge and understanding of the car. The guide is intended for mid range XK8 and XKR's around 2000 and 2001 but the majority of the information applies to both the earlier and later cars.
