xk8 starter motor removal.

Postby jaspersjags » Wed Oct 09, 2019 11:18 am

I have to replace the starter motor on my 1998 Jaguar XK8 4.0 litre V8.
Any advice would be really appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Roger.

After lowering the windows and disconnecting the battery, remove the steering rack. The starter can then be removed. The upper starter motor bolt needs a short 13mm spanner or a series of 3/8" socket set extensions including a UJ. Mike.

Thanks Mike,
Does the steering rack have to be removed or dropped?

I can't quite remember is the honest answer. It's quite a while since I tackled the task. Dropping it whilst still attached to the TREs and column would provide an opportunity to see if access is sufficient before total removal (I suspect it isn't). Mike.
