[xj] Decals & CD

Hi Guys

The top radiator panel on my 92 Sovereign was corroded, apparently
a common issue with the 92 cars, as was the fan cowl.

The cowl was replaced and the radiator panel rubbed down and
repainted. However the panel had lost most of the paint before
this, along with the decals that I remember seeing on my other V12s.

Has any one a picture that shows these? This is a UK car. I doubt
if they are available from the JDHT; but I can try if I know what
should be stuck in place.

The car has a Jaguar boot mounted CD changer, as this was a
Sovereign not a Daimler (UK market), the changer was optional. The
documentation shows that it was retrofitted by the dealer at sale.

Rather than using mounting brackets, the changer was installed on
top of the battery cover (boot mounted battery as abs car). Again
has any one a photo of the factory intended location, preferably
detailing the brackets?

Thank you

THere is a yellow sticker ‘‘Warning Rotating Components’’ which
I believe can often be purchased from eBay. Paulsjag has
them. It goes just to the right of the highest point of the
curved part of the fan cowl.

The CD Changer should be mounted in the center of the boot,
below the black metal rail. In fact, your son is pointing to
the correct spot in the photo of your V12 Sovereign!
The brackets can be ordered from the dealer, otherwise I believe they are fairly standard for any CD changer.

Yes Jamie, I can show you all of this. I’ll send you photos separately. The
CD changer was factory mounted at the centre of the boot opening, not over
the battery (did the dealer people think the battery would never need to
come out? What were they thinking???).
The rough finish to the rad panel, and the fuse box panel are characteristic
of the 1992 cars, as you say.

Hi, thank you.

CD Brackets on the way, to relocate the changer to factory correct
position.

I have ordered these two labels:
CBC5929 Label-Anti Freeze for radiator panel
CAC9312 Label-Fan Warning for shroud

The Asbestos warning decal is in place, as is the a/c compressor
R12 label and Jaguar cam cover decals. The bonnet inside, has
emissions decal and R12 label.

All UK variants after 1989 that I have seen, have the
metal ‘‘Federal’’ tag near the front of the OS inner wing, as does
this car.

Q1. Is that it, or should further decals be in place?

Q2. Additionally I have found the remains of a foam ‘‘ring’’, in an
area directly under the master cylinder. Could this be for the
brake reservoir?

Thank you

Gregory will undoubtedly be able to provide the definitive answer
but there was a foam ring round the filler neck of the brake
reservoir on some cars and visible in photographs. I don’t see it
in the pictures in Jag care III, however.–

Yes, there was a foam ring around the brake reservoir cap (on V12 cars at
least), and my car does have it - The Jagcare III photos are of cars from
which this ring was missing - usually by the time the brake fluid was
changed once these foam rings were probably discarded. The rings work well
to prevent and dripping from an over-filled reservoir.

The other decals that should be in the engine compartment of both 6 and 12
cylinder cars: the “Brake System Warning” decal (referring to the brake
fluid) which is found on the sheet metal beside the brake fluid reservoir,
and the battery connection decal; there is also on the underside of the
bonnet the AC R12 decal and the larger emissions decal. On the V12 cars the
left hand air horn has a rectangular oil quality decal.

Okay, I will try and order a replacement ring. (Also would have
prevented dumb/inconsiderate Jaguar technicians damaging the paint
near the reservoir with brake fluid, when pushing the brake pistons
back without precautions).

I am not sure about the battery connection decal, is that in the
boot with the battery, or near the supply terminal studs in the
engine bay? Will also check on the brake decal.

Thank you.

The battery connection decal is with the battery, either in the engine
compartment, or on the last cars, on the battery frame in the boot.

As it is a 1992 car, the battery is in the boot, decal also
attached.
