G’day. Very happy to be back with my Australian XJ40 after lockdown in the UK. Wonderful car - smoothest ride I’ve ever had. Mechanically sound. Excellent bodywork given age - a little rust in a couple of spots. Nothing major needs doing, just a few little things…
The trunk linkage seems to have ‘popped off’. No idea how to open. perhaps a coat hanger through the small hole behind the number plate.
The central locking is dodgy. Only the drivers door unlocks with the key. I’m having to leave it unlocked just in case that lock goes leaving my stuck outside.
Also… the radio failed when I was going through the security procedure (tune to am, tune to fm, press button etc.).
Can I ask. Do you have any ideas regarding the above. I love this car so much I’m hesitant to do anything that my make things worse. That said these are minor things. I feel like a captain of industry when I’m driving it, even though I bought it to cheer myself up on becoming unemployed. Perhaps not the wisest purchase when cash is short, but surely the happiest.
