Jaguar X-type brake problemSome cars built between January and February 2004 could have problems with their brakes. Vehicles with manual transmission, that are parked on an incline with the handbrake on and vehicle out of gear, could roll away due to brake components shrinking as they cool.

Jaguar X-type indicator problemOn some cars built between January 2001 and October 2002, there have been issues reported with indicators. The external indicator can be broken, but the interior light will continue to flash, breaking UK law.

Jaguar X-type sensor problemA number of X-types built between February and March 2004 had sensor issues. The yaw-rate sensor has been known to internally delaminate, which could result in uneven and unexpected application of the brakes.

My Dealer says : "They all do that". Other S-Type Owners have reported their Dealers say : "They all do that". (See Owners' Feedback)

Jaguar X-type short circuit problemSome models built between August 2003 and August 2004 had insufficient clearance between the battery's positive cable and the number one cylinder fuel injector. This could cause the cable to chafe on the injector nut and result in a short circuit.

Using the Pipe Pliers compress the Hand brake activator until you can remove the cable from its seat.

I have been informed by another S-Type owner that you must inform your Dealer within the first year to be able to have anything done under warranty. If you have an early S-Type check the insides of your front tyres.

Assuming that you don't have access to a car lift:- With the vehicle on a flat stable surface, chock the front wheels and jack the car up at the rear, on the side you wish to change, place the axle stand(s) for security and then remove the road wheel.

The Jaguar X-type was launched in 2001 and was based on the third-generation Ford Mondeo. An estate model joined the saloon in 2004, with Jaguar ending production of both in 2009.

These issues should have been fixed by Jaguar, so make sure the work has been done before you buy.

You do not have to remove the hand brake cable to do this job but it will help if you run into difficulty later for it to be out of the way. It's not hard to do and in my opinion worth- while. With the Rear Disk Brake assembly exposed look at the rear of the caliper and you will see the Hand brake (Emergency Brake) cable and its retaining circlip.

The safety aspect is of note - Other owners have stated that the rear brakes have engaged while their S-Types have been in motion (See Owners' Feedback). It appears that Jaguar TSB R167 was released to address this issue. (See Jaguar TSBs : Technical Service Bulletins)

My S-Type was booked into the local dealer twice to solve this problem while on holiday in Scotland - once for new replacement brake pads, then for a new replacement rear brake caliper.

In addition, the front brakes have always been noisy and creaky. Not what I expected from a Premium car manufacturer like Jaguar. These movies demonstrate very clearly the loud squeaking/creaking sound I experience when braking. (See Owners' Feedback now with 74 comments from Jaguar Owners)
