The trim by the Windscreen is a notorious dirt/rust trap on S types.

I removed mine to see what horrors lay beneath.....

Next was a faulty coolant temperature sensor.

But with it being a Jag she's wasn't letting me off that easily.


Its fairly straight forward to do

#1 remove air intake tubes

#2 drain off the coolant in the expansion tank

#3 be prepaired for the worst.


whoops. i tapped that bit of plastic with my finger and it broke off!!

lol

So i go surfing for a new plastic pipe, £10 nooo

£80 later i have this!!

Not keen on the S types (from this period in time) although I do like a nice Jag, and this looks like it’s got potential. Now subscribed to see how this pans out.
