I very rarely post on this forum of late b/c Harlem (my '00 XJ8) has been in hibernation for quite some time.
I did try to start her up last week though and nothing … Determined it was the starter, so I have bought a good used one to r/r with. The factory service literature indicates it should be a very straightforward, simple procedure (unusual for a Jag, I know ) HOWEVER it shows also that supposedly the power steering rack has to be dropped first to provide sufficient maneuvering room for the procedure. Is it really necessary? Is there some way around it?
