Signing in

Unlike other XE Forums, I have to 'Sign in' to JEC's every time - even though I've ticked 'Remember me'.
Anyone else get this annoyance?

Re: Sensitive door handles

My 2017 XE S is the same: I try to remember to leave the key fob out of range.

Re: XE S Arrived

Have now checked remaining wheels hubs. All have corrosion, which I've cleaned off as best I can and smeared a light film of copper grease on the mating surfaces.
The vehicle left the factory 1st week of March: Here's a pic of the front N/S hub

Re: XE S Arrived

Brian, the corrosion is on the car's hub NOT the space-saver wheel- which is similar to your spare.
I have yet to check the other three.

XE S Arrived

I collected my new XE S yesterday and I'm delighted with how it feels/drives. However, on removing a rear wheel to check that my ex-XK's space-saver wheel would fit, I was not impressed to see a rusty hub face looking at me after just 46 miles. Incidentally, on trying to fit said spare into the whee...

12V supply in boot/trunk

I posted this on the New Arrivals - and now found the correct place - doh! I have a new XE S on order and want to know if there is a 12 Volt pick up stud/bolt in the rear boot/trunk area? Had one in my 2013 XK which made connecting a CTEK battery conditioner a simple task. Thanks and hello X760 peop...

Re: Welcome to the XE Board!

Here we go then, first query. (Can't find 'New subject' on this revised site). I have a new XE S on order and want to know if there is a 12 Volt pick up stud/bolt in the rear boot/trunk area? Had one in my 2013 XK which made connecting a CTEK battery conditioner a simple task. Thanks and hello X760 ...

Defection

Hello folks. Tomorrow my 2013 XK Portfolio is being taken away (sniff...) by the dealer who is ordering me a new XE-s with a late March ETA. Therefore I've defected from the XK/XK8 Forum and waiting to pick up any tips on this model. What I'd like to see here are 2 full-size photos of XEs in Italian...

Re: New member looking for a xkr 2010 onwards

My 2013 XK Portfolio driver's headrest has the remnants of some old bloke's long-lost lustrous locks.
Sigh.....

Re: Dimensions

Yes. The (steel-bodied) XK/XKR are X100 and the later (aluminium) XK/XKR being X150.

Re: Electrics for drivers seat 02 XKR

On a previous XK (X150 'spam can' model), the driver's seat lost it's memory and ended up like yours. I found that by holding the adjuster in the fully aft position for 10 seconds all worked normally again. Worth a try on your X100.

Re: WINDSCREEN AND TRIMS DAMAGED BY LUNATIC THROWING BOTTLE

How dreadful.
No help or comfort for you, sadly - but certainly a reason to fit in-car video cameras.

Re: Battery drain; testing the current draw.

On my last three XKs (1999, 2007, 2013) I've used a CTEK conditioner and never had battery issues with any of them. I connect the unit's female cable via a fuse to the battery (or power stud on the X150 models), run the QD 'tail' out through the rubber bung in the spare wheel well and plug the CTEK'...
