A noisy power steering pump bearing was found after careful diagnosis from technicians.
Customer noted that the hydraulic hood was very slow to operate.
On close inspection the feed and return hydraulic pipes had waxed up completely.
The interior had to be stripped out in order for the pipes to be replaced.

Jaguar X-Type Case Studies
X Type 2.5 noise
Vehicle booked in for diagnosis of a "droning" noise at low speed.
Vehicle inspected on ramp at low speed.
Technicians diagnosed faulty transfer box output bearing failure.
This required the transfer box to be replaced.
X Type 2.0 D Turbo
Vehicle presented with glow plug light flashing and sluggish driving. Customer had been near a local purported specialist so had vehicle checked out; advised that the issue was a fuel system problem and would require replacing but also offered an alternative to have a reconditioned engine fitted as this would be "cheaper".
Jagtech checked fault codes and together with inspection and checks found a turbo acctuator had seized. Replaced turbo acctuator and vehicle now running correctly.
If the customer had opted for either of the other "expert" assessment options they not only would have been more expensive but would not have fixed the issue.
X Type 2.0D Cutting out
Vehicle cutting out under load
Found non genuine oil filter had been fitted which was causing misfire.
X Type 2.2D Knock
Vehicle presented with knock from rear.
Technicians found that very cheap aftermarket rear suspension arms had been fitted by a non specialist garage. These were very inferior and were causing excessive knocking and made the rear suspension feel vague.
Replaced with genuine parts.
