this may be accompanied by an
intermittent chime.
Ensure passengers do not fully extend the
restraints and inadvertently engage this
feature during normal use.
Child Seats
It is important to remember that your
child’s weight, rather than age,
determines the type of seat that is
required.
Refer to Child Safety to determine the
correct seat for your child, see page 74.

diagnostic equipment (for example, the
use of test lamps or low impedance
voltmeters). The fitting of any electrical
accessory should only be entrusted to
a Jaguar Dealer.
Regular routine maintenance not only
helps to prevent unnecessary
breakdowns and inconvenience, but

WARNING:
Using any hand-held appliance
while driving can be dangerous and
is illegal in certain countries.
Always stop the vehicle before
making a call and ensure that the
telephone is switched off while you
are driving.
WINDOW TINTING
Ensure that the driver’s floor mat is
correctly positioned and secured under
the tongues on the retention posts (1, only
one post shown), so that the mat does not
interfere with the operation of the
accelerator, clutch or brake pedals.
Caution: Do not have your vehicle
windows tinted with a metal oxide
tinting (for maximum heat reduction
from sun load) if you have telephone or
a navigation system fitted to your
vehicle.
In particular, check the position of the mat
when refitting after cleaning or servicing.
Metal oxide tinting prevents the reception
of the Global Positioning System (GPS)
signals by the antenna, causing the
navigation system to stop functioning.
PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
We must all play our part in protecting the
environment. Correct vehicle usage and
disposal of waste cleaning and lubrication
materials are significant steps towards
this aim.
A non-metal tinting should be used if you
require window tinting and if in doubt,
contact your Jaguar Dealer for advice.
Avoid using high engine speeds. You will
then protect your engine, reduce fuel
consumption, lower the engine noise level
and help towards reducing the
environmental burden.
Dispose of batteries, tires, engine, brake
and coolant fluids at your local authorised
waste disposal facilities.

General Information
LEATHER CARE GUIDE
It is recommended that Jaguar Leather
Cleaner is used several times a year to
maintain its appearance and suppleness.
The Jaguar Leather Cleaner will nourish
and moisturise the leather and help to
improve and renew the surface protective
film against dust and substances.
Leather is a natural product, therefore, it
bears natural characteristics, such as
grain variations, growth and brush marks.
These non-weakening marks show the
true nature of the hide and are the
hallmarks of a leather product. Leather is
an easy to maintain natural product,
however, dust and substances can
penetrate the pores and crease the
leather, causing surface wear and
brittleness.
•
Do not use solvents such as gasoline,
white spirit or alcohol. Do not use
detergents, furniture polish or
household cleaners. Such strong
treatments may give, initially, an
impressive appearance, but their use
will lead to rapid damage or
deterioration of the natural properties
of the leather. Jaguar recommend a
basic set of products that have been
specially selected for the type of
leather in your vehicle. The
Manufacturer’s Warranty will be
invalidated if treatments are used
other than those recommended by
Jaguar Cars Limited.
•
Dark clothing may stain leather seats
just like other upholstery products.
•
Sharp objects such as belts, zip
fasteners, rivets, etc. can leave
permanent scratches and scratch
marks on the leather surface.
•
Unless spillages such as tea, coffee or
ink are washed away immediately,
permanent staining may have to be
accepted.
To prevent ingrained dirt and staining,
inspect the seat upholstery regularly and
clean every one to two months as follows:
•
Wipe off fine dust from the seat
surfaces at regular intervals using a
clean, damp, non-coloured cloth.
Change frequently to a clean area of
cloth to avoid abrasive action on the
leather surface. Avoid over-wetting.
•
If this is not sufficient, use a cloth
which has been dampened with warm
soapy water and then wrung out.
Never allow the leather to be soaked
through. Use only mild non-caustic
soap.
•
Use Jaguar Leather Cleaner for
heavily soiled areas. Dry off and rub
with a clean soft cloth, changing
surfaces regularly.
When staining (e.g.: from clothing) or
spillage occurs, clean the affected area
immediately as described above.
If a valet service is used, ensure that the
specialist concerned is aware of, and
follows these instructions precisely.
For any further questions please consult
your Jaguar Dealer for specialist advice.

compartment.
•
Remove the ignition key and spare
keys, even when the vehicle is in your
garage.
•
Close all windows and lock all doors
securely.
•
Park the vehicle where it can be seen.
At night, park in a well-lit area.
•
When leaving the vehicle unattended,
for maximum security ensure that the
doors are double-locked (where
fitted).
•
An electronic device is fitted in the head of
each key which is programmed to the
vehicle electronics. When the key is
placed in the ignition switch, a
sophisticated decoding process is used
to validate the key transponder code. The
engine cannot be started unless the key is
programmed to the vehicle electronic
systems.
When turning the key in the ignition switch
to start the engine, if the security status
light on the centre console remains
flashing, a fault condition is indicated, and
it is possible that the engine will not start.
Please contact a Jaguar Dealer to
investigate the cause of the light flashing
even if the engine starts.
KEYS
Vehicles are supplied with two key
transmitters, which comprise the key
body integrated with the remote
transmitter. Separate keys, without the
transmitter, are also available from Jaguar
Dealers.
Ensure that all key transmitters are
removed from the vehicle before
locking the doors, and that all doors,
the luggage compartment and the
hood are closed.
It is important to keep your keys in safe
places at all times. Leaving them in
conspicuous places is an invitation for a
thief to steal them and, consequently,
your vehicle or belongings. Keep them as
secure as you would your wallet or purse,
both at home and away.
The key operates all the locks on your
vehicle. The key number is recorded on
an adhesive label which is fixed to the
back of each key. Peel off the label and
attach it to the designated area on the
Security Card supplied in the vehicle
literature pack. It is recommended that
the Security Card is kept safely, not in the
vehicle.

Caution: Should a key transmitter be
lost, a new one can be obtained and
programmed to the vehicle by a Jaguar
Dealer, who will ask for proof of vehicle
ownership. It is advisable to notify a
Jaguar Dealer as soon as a key
transmitter is lost or stolen and have
the remaining key transmitter(s)
reprogrammed. This will then prevent
the lost or stolen key transmitter from
being used to disarm and unlock the
vehicle.
Note: Jaguar Dealers keep a log of all
enquiries for replacement keys and notify
Jaguar Cars Limited of any such requests.
The security system can be controlled
remotely by a radio frequency,
battery-operated, integrated key
transmitter.

The garage door opener transceiver is
located in the roof console. This
transceiver can be programmed to
transmit the radio frequencies of up to
three different transmitters which can be
used to activate garage doors, entry
gates, home lighting, security systems, or
other radio frequency operated devices.
Although this section mainly describes
the procedures for a garage door opener,
it also equally applies to the previously
mentioned applications.
In some countries this feature is also
known as the HomeLink® Universal
Transceiver.
The transceiver radio frequency approval
numbers for the USA and Canada are
shown below:
USA - FCC: K8597 R315.
Canada - CAN: 2145 101 790A.
55
WARNING:
Do not use the transceiver with any
garage door opener that lacks the
safety stop and reverse feature as
required by safety standards. A
garage door opener which cannot
detect an object, signalling the
door to stop and reverse, does not
meet current safety standards.
Using a garage door opener
without these features increases
risk of serious injury or death.
•
When programming the transceiver
to a garage door opener or entry
gate, make sure that people,
vehicles and objects are out of the
way to prevent potential harm or
damage as the gate or garage door
will activate during the programme.

Occupant Protection
Before Driving
SEAT BELTS
Although not advisable, it is possible to
disable the Beltminder function. Please
see a Jaguar Dealer to disable or reinstate
the function.
The use of front and rear seat belts is
mandatory in most countries. Using seat
belts saves lives. They should be worn by
all occupants whenever the vehicle is in
use, for maximum protection.
Lap/shoulder inertia reel seat belts are
provided for both front occupants and
three rear seat positions.
Note: Not all countries have the warning
chime.
Front belt height adjustment
The inertia operating mechanism of the
seat belts allows the wearers to move
their upper bodies to reach various
controls. The seat belts lock automatically
with accelerated body movement or in the
event of emergency braking.
The seat belt assemblies incorporate
additional safety devices. All have belt
pretensioners and the front belts also
have force limiters. These devices provide
increased protection in the event of a
severe frontal impact.
To adjust the front seat belt heights, press
the locking button and slide the
anchorage so that the seat belt webbing
passes over the shoulder without pulling
against the neck. Release the button and
check that the anchorage point is locked.
The pretensioners operate in conjunction
with the air bags as part of the Advanced
Restraints Technology System, refer to
page 66.
All passenger seat belt mechanisms
incorporating an automatic locking device
allow child seats to be secured safely,
refer to Child Safety on page 72.
Always check the anchorage point after
the seat has been adjusted to ensure that
the belt is correctly positioned.
Beltminder
The beltminder feature is a supplemental
warning to the seat belt warning function,
see page 100. This feature provides
additional reminders to the driver that the
driver’s and/or passenger’s seat belt is
unbuckled by intermittently sounding a
chime and illuminating the seat belt
warning light in the instrument cluster.
59
L
Occupant Protection
Seat belt fitting
When the ignition is turned to the ON
position, a warning light on the
instrument panel will illuminate for 60
seconds if the driver’s seat belt is not
fastened. This will be acompanied by a
warning chime for the first six seconds.
Note: If the vehicle is parked on uneven
ground, the seat belt mechanism may
lock. This is not a fault, allow the seat belt
to retract a small amount before gently
easing the belt from its attachment to
unlock it.
Belt buckle release
To release the belt buckle, press the
release button (2) in the buckle unit and
allow the seat belt to fully retract.
Inertia reel mechanism test
•
With the seat belt fastened, give the
webbing near the buckle a quick
upward pull. The buckle must remain
securely locked.
•
With the seat belt unfastened, unreel
the webbing to the limit of its travel.
Check that the unreeling is free from
snatches and snags and then allow
the belt to FULLY retract.
•
Partially unreel the webbing, then hold
the tongue plate and give it a quick
forward pull. The mechanism must
lock automatically and prevent any
further unreeling.
!
WARNING:
Do not adjust the seat belt while
driving.
Draw the tongue of the seat belt over the
shoulder, across the chest and push it
into the buckle unit slot (1). A positive click
indicates that it is safely locked.
The use of comfort clips or devices that
would create slackness in the seat belt
system are not advised.
If a seat belt should fail any of these tests,
contact your Jaguar Dealer immediately.
Ensure that the webbing is midway
between the neck and the edge of the
shoulder. Correct tension is controlled by
automatic retraction of the reel.
60
R
Occupant Protection
•
No modifications or additions
should be made by the user which
will either prevent the seat belt
adjusting devices from operating to
remove slack, or prevent the seat
belt assembly from being adjusted
to remove slack.
•
Should the seat belt not retract and
remain at its static length, consult
your nearest Jaguar Dealer
immediately.
•
Replacement/renewal of seat belts
should be carried out by Jaguar
Dealers.
!
•
WARNING:
Belts should not be worn with
straps twisted.
•
Always ensure that the webbing is
midway between the neck and the
edge of the shoulder.
•
Each seat belt assembly must only
be used by one occupant; it is
dangerous to put a seat belt around
a child being carried on the
occupant’s lap.
•
Seat belts are designed to bear
upon the bony structure of the
body, and should be worn low
across the front of the pelvis or the
pelvis, chest and shoulders, as
applicable; wearing the lap section
of the belt across the abdominal
area must be avoided.
•
Seat belts should be adjusted as
firmly as possible, consistent with
comfort, to provide the protection
for which they have been designed.
A slack belt will greatly reduce the
protection afforded to the wearer.
•
Care should be taken to avoid
contamination of the webbing with
polishes, oils and chemicals, and
particularly battery acid. Cleaning
may safely be carried out using mild
soap and water. The belt should be
replaced if webbing becomes
frayed, contaminated or damaged.
•
It is essential to replace the entire
assembly after it has been worn in a
severe impact even if damage to
the assembly is not obvious.
61
L
Occupant Protection
Pregnant women
Always wear seat belts without slack or
twists, since slackness in a seat belt
drastically reduces the effectiveness of
the belt and the level of protection it can
provide. For optimum protection, the seat
belts should fit tightly around the body.
Do not recline the front seats excessively,
as the belts provide maximum protection
when the seats are in the near upright
position.
!

WARNING:
Pregnant women must wear a
correctly positioned seat belt; it is
safer for mother and unborn child.
Never wear just the lap strap of a
lap/shoulder diagonal seat belt and
never sit on the lap strap using just
the shoulder strap. Both of these
actions are extremely dangerous
and may increase your risk of
serious injury.
There are many ways that the seat belt
can be misused for the sake of comfort.
However, there is only one way of wearing
it safely.
The lap strap should be fitted comfortably
across the hips, low beneath the pregnant
abdomen. The diagonal part of the seat
belt should be placed between the
breasts, and worn above and to the side
of the pregnant abdomen.
Never place anything between you and
the seat belt in an attempt to cushion the
impact in the event of an accident. It can
be dangerous and reduce the
effectiveness of the seat belt in preventing
injury.

Occupant Protection
ADVANCED RESTRAINTS
TECHNOLOGY SYSTEM (ARTS)
After air bag deployment, it is normal to
notice a smoke-like, powdery residue or
smell the burnt propellant. This may
consist of cornstarch, talcum powder or
sodium compounds that result from the
combustion process that inflates the air
bag.
!
WARNING:
The air bag is a supplementary
restraint system that provides
ADDITIONAL protection in a severe
impact only - it does NOT replace the
need to wear seat belts. For maximum
safety protection in all crash situations,
a seat belt must be worn.
Small amounts of other chemicals may be
present which may irritate the skin and
eyes, but none of the residue is toxic.
While the system is designed to help
reduce serious injuries, it may also cause
minor burns, abrasions, swelling or
temporary hearing loss.
Provided occupants are correctly
seated, with seat belts worn, the air
bags will provide additional protection
to the chest and facial areas of the
front seat occupants in the event of a
vehicle receiving severe frontal impact,
and also to the head and side of the
body facing the impact if a severe side
collision occurs.
!
•
Important information
To do their life-saving job, air bags must
inflate rapidly and with considerable
force. There is therefore a risk of death or
serious injuries such as fractures, facial
and eye injuries or internal injuries,
particularly to occupants who are not
properly restrained by seat belts or sitting
correctly when the air bag deploys.
•
Occupants with disabilities that
may require the vehicle to be
modified must contact a Jaguar
Dealer before any modifications are
made.
•
Safety experts recommend a
minimum distance of at least 25.4
cm (10 inches) between an
occupant's chest and a front air
bag.
The risk of injury from a deploying air bag
is greatest close to the trim covering the
air bag.
The whole sequence of events from
sensing the impact to full inflation of the
bag takes place in a fraction of a second.
63
WARNING:
No objects whatsoever should be
attached to the centre cover of the
steering wheel, the passenger
fascia panel, the sides of the front
seats or the interior trim
immediately above the door
openings. Do not put anything on or
over the air bag inflation area.
Placing objects on or over the air
bag inflation area may cause those
objects to be propelled by the air
bag into your face and torso
causing serious injury.
L
Occupant Protection
•
Children 12 years old and younger
can be killed or seriously injured by
the air bag. The rear seat is the
safest place for children.
•
Do not try to put an adult seat belt
around two children.
•
Several air bag system components
get hot after inflation. Do not touch
them after they have deployed.
•
If an air bag is inflated, the air bag
will not function again and must be
renewed immediately. If a new air
bag is not fitted, the unrepaired
area will increase the risk of injury
in a collision.

Occupant Protection
Air bag deployment
The air bag supplementary restraint
system incorporates front, side thorax
and side head air bags for the driver and
front passenger and side head bags for
rear seat passengers. These are indicated
by the word ‘air bag’ on the trim. They are
used in conjunction with the seat belts to
help protect occupants from upper body
(thorax) and head injuries.
2. The front passenger air bag is located
in the fascia panel immediately in front
of the passenger seat.
3. Curtain air bags are fitted on each
side, above the front and rear doors.
4. Thorax side air bags are fitted within
the outboard bolsters of both front
seats, and are identified by labels.
The air bags and seat belt pretensioners
are electrically controlled by an advanced
restraints technology system.
1. The driver front air bag is located in
the centre of the steering wheel.
66
R
Occupant Protection
Both front air bags use a dual inflation
technology which means, if activated, the
bag(s) will deploy at either a normal or
reduced level of inflation, depending on
crash severity. Lower inflation level is also
selected if the restraint system senses
that the driver is too close to the steering
wheel.
Front protection
Various sensors determine the direction
and severity of an impact and the
presence and position of front seat
occupants, see page 70. The system
analyses this information then deploys
only the appropriate air bags, e.g. the side
air bags where the impact is on that side
only.
Air bags will not deploy at very low
speeds or in rear impacts.
With a front impact of sufficient force,
the restraints system will trigger the front
air bag(s) and seat belt pretensioners,
which immediately tighten the seat belts.
For front occupants, the seat belt then
slackens with increasing chest load,
allowing the head and chest to more
gradually come into contact with the
inflated air bag.
The air bag absorbs the remaining energy
of the impact and then deflates rapidly via
vent holes.
Front air bags are designed to inflate in
frontal and near frontal collisions, not low
speed impacts, roll-over, side-impact or
rear-impact.
Where the air bags are not deployed,
protection is provided by the seat belts.
67
L
Occupant Protection
Side protection
When the curtain air bag inflates upon a
vehicle side impact, it breaks through the
headlining and deploys downwards,
giving head protection to the front and
rear seat occupants on the impact side.
The curtain air bag on the front passenger
side is always deployed in a side impact
even if the front passenger seat air bags
are de-activated. This is to maintain
protection for a rear occupant.
Seat mounted thorax and curtain air bags
are designed to inflate in a side impact
collision, not rollover, rear-impact, frontal
or near-frontal collisions, unless the
collision causes sufficient lateral
deceleration.
The air bags, in combination with the seat
belts, can help reduce the risk of severe
injuries in the event of a significant side
impact collision.
!
WARNING:
To ensure that the side air bags are
fully effective:
•
DO NOT sit too close to, or lean
against the door trim. The side
airbag could injure you as it deploys
from the side of the seat
•
DO NOT lean out of the window
aperture.
•
Only use JAGUAR APPROVED
accessories (e.g. seat covers).
The side protection system utilizes four air
bags: Two mounted in the front seats, and
two curtain air bags located just above
the front and rear door openings under
the headlining trim.
When the seat mounted thorax air bag
inflates upon a vehicle side impact, it
breaks through the seat bolster stitching,
protecting the side of the rib cage of the
driver or front seat passenger.
68
R
Occupant Protection
Rear impact protection
Both front seats have active, energy
absorbent backrests which, with correctly
positioned headrests, reduce the risk of
neck and spinal injury whiplash in the
event of a rear impact.
When activated, the seat backrests
automatically move back and recline,
altering the occupants’ posture and
reducing relative motion between the
body and head.
Note: The amount of backrest movement
depends on the severity of the impact and
for a minor collision there may be no
apparent change to the seat even where
the protective system has been activated.
After any rear collision, therefore, the seat
must always be inspected by a Jaguar
Dealer.
The degree of backrest movement in a
rear collision depends on the angle,
speed and nature of the colliding vehicle.
•
!
After activation, the whiplash protection
mechanism will not work again and the
seat must be serviced by a Jaguar Dealer
to restore the protective function.
69
WARNING:
For optimum protection, the driver
and passenger should sit in the
centre of the seat with the head as
close as possible to the head
restraint.
•
Do not wedge objects (e.g.
luggage) between the front seat
backrest and the rear seat cushion.
•
After a rear collision, the front seats
must be inspected by a Jaguar
Dealer even where there is no
apparent damage or change to the
seat.
•
Do not attempt to service or tamper
with the seat recliner mechanism.
•
Adjust the head restraint so that it
is just behind your head and never
behind your neck.

recommended:
•
Always sit centrally in the seat,
remaining in contact with the seat
back which for comfort should be
rearwards of the vertical position.
•
Adjust the seat to be as far back from
the fascia as practical.
•
Always wear seat belts.
The AIR BAG indicator light on the
passenger fascia is associated with the
deployment conditions for front seat
passenger air bags only.
Whenever the AIR BAG indicator light on
the passenger fascia is illuminated, the
front passenger air bag will not be
deployed in the event of an impact. Where
the air bags are not deployed, protection
is provided by the seat belts.
The seat adjustment controls are
described on page 80.
Air bag disposal
!
WARNING:
Do not attempt to service, repair or
modify the air bag system or its
electrical fuses. All work on the air bag
system, including renewal after
deployment, must be carried out by an
authorised Jaguar Dealer. Instructions
can be obtained from a Jaguar Dealer.
In the event of the vehicle being
dismantled, air bag module removal and
disposal MUST be made by a qualified
person.

Child Safety
Child Safety
GENERAL SAFETY
INFORMATION
Jaguar Cars Limited strongly
recommends that at all times children
should be carried in the rear seats.
Extreme hazard! DO NOT install a
rearward-facing child seat or child
restraint in the front passenger seat
position since deployment of the
passenger fascia air bag could
cause death or serious injury to the
child.
This is emphasised by the label
displayed on the end of the fascia
on the front passenger side, as
shown in the illustration.
If, however, you have no alternative
but to place a child in the front
passenger seat, use only a
forward-facing child seat with the
passenger seat set fully rearward
and in its lowest position.
•
Always follow the fitting
instructions supplied with the
appropriate child restraint system.
It is important to read and
understand all the information
contained in this handbook relating
to child safety before carrying a
child in your vehicle.
If you are unsure about any aspect
of this information, contact your
Jaguar Dealer.
In many countries legislation governs how
and where children should be carried
when travelling in a vehicle.
!
•
•
WARNING:
Children must be restrained by a
child safety restraint that is suitable
for their weight and size.
It is the responsibility of the driver to
comply with all regulations in force in the
country where the vehicle is being used.
Holding a baby or child in a person’s arms
is not a substitute for a child restraint
system. Do not use a seat belt to restrain
more than one person.
72
R
Child Safety
In an accident, a baby or child held in a
person’s arms can be crushed between
the vehicle’s interior and a restrained
person.
Child restraint systems
Look for the following when selecting a
child restraint system:
•
The child can also be injured by hitting the
interior or by being thrown from the
vehicle during a sudden manoeuvre or
impact.
It should have a label certifying that it
meets the applicable Regulations.
•
Carefully read the instructions
supplied with the restraint. Be sure
you understand them and can install
and use the device properly and
safely in the vehicle.
Injury can also be caused if the baby or
child is allowed to ride on the seat
unrestrained. Other occupants should
also be properly restrained to help reduce
the chance of injuring the child.
Infant safety
Babies and small children who cannot sit
up by themselves should be carried in an
approved rear facing infant carrier, which
should always be installed in a rear
seating position.
Do not allow children to stand in the
space between the front seats, or on the
passenger seats.
!

•
WARNING:
Do not put an adult seat belt around
two children.
Choose a child seat that sits
securely on the seat cushion and
against the seat back.

Choosing a suitable child seat
Before you buy a child seat, it is important
to note that your child’s weight, rather
than age, determines the type of seat that
is required.
Avoid travelling with your infant
forward-facing until they are between 9 to
18 kg (20 to 40 lb) and able to sit up
unaided. Up to the age of two, a child’s
spine and neck are not sufficiently
developed to avoid injury in a frontal
impact.
Jaguar recommends that a rear-facing
seat with a harness is used for as long
as your infant’s development allows.
Always use the top tether to secure a
forward-facing child seat where
possible. (See page 78.)
74
R
Child Safety
It is also important to consider how you
plan to use the child seat. For longer
journeys, a reclining seat may offer added
comfort and support for a sleeping child,
while a lightweight design may be easier
to lift in and out of the vehicle.
The following checks should always be
carried out:
•
Fit the child seat in the correct
position and secure with the seat belt
in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
It is also worth noting that some children
are more suited to a harness-style seat
than a booster seat during their toddler
years.
•
Regularly check and refit the child
seat to ensure there is no slack in the
installation.
•
Pull the seat belt all the way out to
engage the locking device, where
fitted.
•
To fix the seat firmly, retract the belt
back onto the reel; a ratchet operation
will be felt as the belt retracts.
Continue to pay the belt back onto the
reel until it fits snugly around the child
seat.
•
Make sure the child seat is fitted firmly
to the car seat. There should not be
excessive forward or sideways
movement.
•
The seat belt must not be twisted and
the buckle must not rest on the child
seat frame as it may snap open in an
accident.
•
Never modify the seat or install it
differently to the instructions.
We strongly advise that you do not buy or
use a second-hand child seat. The seat
may have been used inappropriately, or
involved in an accident. In such
circumstances, the seat may not protect
your child.
Because child seats vary in shape, certain
designs may be more stable when
mounted on the outer rear seating
positions, rather than in the centre.
Always check that the child seat can be
mounted securely in the required
position: if in doubt, speak to your Jaguar
Dealer.
Fitting the child seat
Passenger seat belts (not the driver’s)
have an automatic locking device for use
with child seats.
If engaged, this device, where fitted,
allows the belt to be retracted (tightened)
but not pulled out. When used to secure a
child seat, therefore, the belt will
automatically lock at any point to which it
has retracted.
Depending on the features of a particular
child seat, e.g. forward or
rearward-facing, engage the locking
device before or after attaching the belt,
as convenient.
Unbuckling the belt and releasing the
child seat will allow the belt to resume its
normal operation.
Always use and keep the manufacturer’s
fitting instructions.
Always secure an unoccupied child seat
safely. In an accident, an unsecured child
seat may pose a risk to the vehicle’s
occupants.
75
L
Child Safety
Booster seats
If a booster seat is used, position the lap
section of the adult seat belt over the
child’s pelvis. The diagonal seat belt
should rest on the child’s shoulder, not
the neck.
LATCH child restraint system
(Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren)
Your vehicle is fitted with a set of LATCH
brackets that allow the LATCH child seat
to be secured directly and easily to the
vehicle body without the use of adult seat
belts.
CHILD RESTRAINTS
Many injuries to children in accidents are
caused by the incorrect fitting and
tensioning of the adult seat belts, which
are normally used to secure child seats.
The LATCH system reduces the likelihood
of incorrect fitting and is also quicker and
simpler to use.
Safe use of child restraints
Ensure there is no slack in the webbing
and the restraint fits the child snugly
across the rib cage and hips. These are
the parts of the body most able to take the
force of an impact.
•
Ensure the path and position of an
integral harness across the shoulders
is appropriate for your child’s
development – consult the
manufacturer’s instructions.
•
The lap strap should pass across the
top of the child’s thighs, bearing on
the pelvis, not the abdominal area.
•
Adjust the harness every time, so that
one or two fingers only can be
inserted between the child and
harness. Different clothing on a child
can make a difference to the correct
fitting of the harness.
•
Make sure the harness webbing is not
twisted.
•
Never modify the seat harness or
buckles, as this may affect the quick
release mechanism.
•
Always secure your child correctly,
even for the shortest journey.
•
Follow the seat manufacturer’s
instructions for harness adjustments.
The LATCH system uses two anchorage
loops and a top tether bracket fixed to the
vehicle body. The LATCH child seat has
two retractable lower catches that lock
onto the anchorage loops and a strap that
clips onto the top tether bracket. The
child seat has a quick release mechanism
to allow it to be removed easily.
Make sure the child seat is securely fitted,
and follow the check list on page 79.

Child Safety
Installing the LATCH seat
Caution: Always follow the
manufacturer’s instructions supplied
with the LATCH child seat. The
following is to be considered only as a
guide.
LATCH seats can only be installed in the
rear outboard seating positions. If
necessary, remove the headrest.
The anchorage loop locations
are highlighted by the small

R
Child Safety
The top of the child seat is connected by
a short strap to the top tether bracket to
prevent the seat from rotating about the
lower anchorages. The top tether
brackets are positioned on the rear parcel
shelf, under access covers, at the
centre-line of each rear seating position.
•
Avoid dressing your child in bulky
clothing and do not place any objects
between the child and the restraint
system.
•
Regularly check the fit of your child
seat and replace seats or harnesses
that show signs of wear.
Pass the top tether strap under the
vehicle rear head restraint to connect to
the top tether bracket on the parcel shelf.
Adjust the length of the top tether strap to
hold the top of the child seat against the
vehicle seat back.
•
No child seat is completely
child-proof. Encourage your child not
to play with the buckle or harness.
•
Never leave a child unsupervised in
the vehicle.
•
Activate the rear door child safety
locks, refer to page 47.
•
Ensure your child does not exit the
vehicle from the side where there is
traffic.
WARNING:
Child restraint anchorages are
designed to withstand only those loads
imposed by correctly fitted child seats.
Under no circumstances are they to be
used for adult seat belts or for
attaching other items or equipment to
the vehicle.
•
Set your child a good example –
always wear your seat belt.
•
Ensure that you have removed all
slack from the adult seat belt (nonLATCH restraint only).

WARNING:
Driver and front seat passenger should
always move their seats as far
rearwards as is practical.
FRONT SEAT HEATERS
Ideally, drivers should sit with at least 25.4
cm (10 inches) between the centre of their
breastbone and the cover of the steering
wheel airbag.
Since the risk zone at the time of
deployment is the first 5.4 cm to 7.5 cm
(2 to 3 inches) from the air bag cover,
sitting back 25.4 cm (10 inches) provides
a clear margin of safety. Very few drivers
are unable to achieve and maintain that
safety gap.
Each seat has a heater switch on the
centre console. With the ignition switch in
position II, press a switch to select the
heat setting:
The vast majority of drivers who do not
now sit that far back can change their
position and achieve that distance.
•
If adjustable pedals are fitted, move
them towards the seat.
•
Move your seat back as far as you can
while still comfortably reaching the
pedals.
•
Recline the back of your seat one or
two notches from the upright position.
If reclining the back of your seat
makes it hard to see the road, raise
the seat.
•
•
The optional heated front seats
incorporate heaters in the backrest and
cushions and have two heat settings.
•
A first press selects the higher
temperature setting, indicated by two
red lights on the switch.
•
A second press selects the lower
temperature setting, indicated by one
red light.
•
A third press turns the seat heater off;
both indicator lights off.
The heater will automatically switch OFF
after ten minutes or if the ignition is turned
OFF or a fault is detected.
Tilt the steering wheel/column
downwards so as to point the air bag
at your chest instead of your head and
neck. Adjust the steering wheel/
column fore/aft so that it extends
towards the driver as little as possible,
ensuring that the air bag has plenty of
room to deploy.
The heater will maintain a pre-set
temperature while it is switched on.
Storage of the vehicle in a heated garage,
body heat or warm ambient temperatures
may prevent operation of the seat heater.
Sit in the centre of the seat with the
head as close to the head restraint as
possible.

Door Windows
WINDOW ANTI-TRAP
PROTECTION
To override the anti-trap action:
Each electrically operated window has an
anti-trap protection feature. If the upward
movement of the window detects an
obstacle the anti-trap system will
immediately stop the window closing,
then move it downwards for a short
distance.
•
After the initial attempt to close the
window, operate the close switch a
second time.
•
When the window has reversed from
the blockage, operate the switch
(within ten seconds) until the window
stops again (it will not reverse on the
third attempt).
•
Immediately operate the close switch
again. The window will now move up
a short distance with increased force
to override the blockage.
•
Repeat the override action until the
window has closed. Each time the
window stops, the switch must be
operated immediately to initiate
further override action.
!
WARNING:
If the battery is disconnected or
discharged the window anti-trap
feature is lost. When the battery is
reconnected or recharged the window
anti-trap system must be reset.
To reset the electrically operated
windows anti-trap system:
•
Fully close the window, hold the
switch in the close position for two
seconds and then release the switch.
Wait for two seconds, do not open the
window.
•
Again, select the same window to
close, holding the switch for a further
two seconds.
•
Check to confirm the operation by
opening the window and then use one
touch operation to close the window.
•
Repeat for the remaining electrically
operated windows.
If this procedure fails to move the
blockage, the anti-trap feature will be lost
and must be reset (see first column) after
the blockage has been cleared.
Thermal overload
If the windows are repeatedly opened and
closed (e.g. by a child), a protection
system will de-activate window operation
for a short period to avoid overheating of
the window motors.
To override the anti-trap protection
The anti-trap system will also stop the
window closing if a blockage or
resistance occurs e.g. in the window
guide channels. Typically this might be
due to icing in winter but could also be
caused by damage or misalignment of the
guide channels or seals.

Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
(ACC)
The adaptive cruise control system is
based on the use of a radar sensor which
projects a beam directly forward of the
vehicle so as to detect objects ahead.
(Where fitted)
The radar sensor is mounted behind a
cover on the left-hand side of the lower
cooling aperture, to provide a clear ‘view’
forward for the radar beam.
The radar is approved under FCC rules.
Changes or modifications not expressly
approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user’s
authority to operate the equipment.
The adaptive cruise control system is
designed to aid the driver to maintain a
gap from the vehicle ahead or a set road
speed if there is no slower vehicle ahead.
The system is intended to provide
enhanced operation of the vehicle when
following other vehicles which are in the
same lane and travelling in the same
direction.
•
Only use adaptive cruise control when
conditions are favourable, that is,
straight, dry, open roads with light
traffic.
•
Do not use in poor visibility,
specifically fog, heavy rain, spray or
snow.
•
Do not use on icy or slippery roads.
•
It is the drivers responsibility to stay
alert, drive safely and be in control of
the vehicle at all times.
•
Keep the front of the vehicle free from
dirt, metal badges or objects,
including vehicle front protectors,
which may prevent the sensor from
operating.
•
Do not use ACC when entering or
leaving a motorway.
!
WARNING:
Adaptive cruise control is not a
collision warning or avoidance system.
Additionally, adaptive cruise control
will not detect:
•
Stationary or slow moving vehicles
below 10 km/h (6 mph).
•
Pedestrians or objects in the
roadway.
•
Oncoming vehicles in the same
lane.

When a vehicle ahead enters the same
lane or a slower vehicle is ahead in the
same lane, the vehicle speed will be
adjusted automatically until the gap to the
vehicle ahead corresponds to the preset
gap. The vehicle is now in ‘follow mode’.
The system is operated by switches
mounted on the steering wheel. The driver
can also intervene at any time by use of
the brake or accelerator pedals.
The warning light in the
instrument cluster will be
illuminated.
The steering wheel switches operate as
follows:
RESUME (1): Resume set speed.
SET + or SET - (2): Set the speed (+) or
increase (+) or decrease (-) the set speed.

Adaptive Cruise Control
The maximum braking which is applied by
the ACC system is limited and can be
overridden by the driver applying the
brakes, if required.
Overriding the set speed/follow mode
!
WARNING:
Whenever the driver is overriding the
ACC by depressing the accelerator
pedal, the ACC will not automatically
apply the brakes to maintain
separation from any vehicle ahead.
Note: Driver braking will cancel adaptive
cruise control.
If the ACC system predicts that its
maximum braking level will not be
sufficient, then an audible warning will
sound while the ACC continues to brake.
DRIVER INTERVENE will be displayed on
the message centre. The driver should
take IMMEDIATE action.
The set speed and gap can be overridden
by pressing the accelerator pedal when
cruising at constant speed or in follow
mode. If the vehicle is in follow mode, the
instrument warning light will go out when
the ACC is overridden by the driver using
the accelerator and CRUISE OVERRIDE
will be displayed on the message centre.
When the accelerator is released the ACC
function will operate again and vehicle
speed will decrease to the set speed, or a
lower speed if follow mode is active.
When in follow mode the vehicle will
automatically return to the set speed
when the road ahead is clear, for instance
when:
•
The vehicle in front accelerates or
changes lane.
•
The driver changes lane to either side
or enters an exit lane.
Changing the gap
The gap from the vehicle ahead can be
decreased or increased by pressing the
rocker switch (4), see page 116, on the
steering wheel. Four gaps are available
and the selected gap setting will be
displayed on the message centre when
either button is pressed. After the ignition
is switched ON the default gap will be
automatically selected ready for ACC
operation.
The driver should intervene if appropriate.
Low speed automatic switch off
If the speed of the vehicle decreases
below 30 km/h (18 mph), the ACC system
will be automatically switched OFF and
the instrument warning light will go out.
If the brakes were being applied by the
ACC system, they will be slowly released.
This will be accompanied by an audible
warning, and DRIVER INTERVENE will
be displayed on the message centre. The
driver must take control.
Note: It is the driver’s responsibility to
select a gap appropriate to the driving
conditions.

km/h) dependent on the country
specification.
•
The ignition switch is set to position 0.
•
Maximum vehicle speed is reached.
•
A fault occurs in the ACC system.
Resuming the set speed/follow mode
By pressing the resume button (1), see
page 116, after ACC has been cancelled,
for example, after braking, the ACC will
become active again provided that the set
speed memory has not been erased. The
set speed will be displayed for four
seconds and the original set speed will be
resumed, unless a vehicle ahead causes
the follow mode to become active.
Set speeds outside this range will not be
captured.
The ACC may apply the brakes to slow
down the vehicle to the new set speed.
The new set speed will be displayed on
the message centre until ACC is
cancelled.
Caution: RESUME should only be used
if the driver is aware of the set speed
and intends to return to it.

FORWARD ALERT
DRIVING WITH ACC ACTIVE
The system acts by regulating the speed
of the vehicle using engine control and the
brakes. Gear changes may occur in
response to deceleration or acceleration
whilst in ACC.
ACC is not a collision avoidance system,
however, during some situations the
system may provide the driver with an
indication that intervention is required.
An audible alarm will sound,
accompanied by the message DRIVER
INTERVENE if the ACC detects:
Limited detection and warning of objects
ahead is provided during ACC operation
by the ACC DRIVER INTERVENE
warning. The forward alert feature
additionally provides warnings whilst
ACC is not engaged; if an object is
detected close ahead, then the warning

DETECTION ISSUES
ACC FAILURE
If a fault occurs during operation of the
system in cruise or follow modes, the
ACC system will switch OFF and cannot
be used until the fault is cleared. The
message DRIVER INTERVENE appears
briefly, and is then replaced by the
message CRUISE NOT AVAILABLE.
If failure of the ACC or any related system
occurs at any other time the message
CRUISE NOT AVAILABLE will be
displayed. It will not be possible to
activate the ACC system in any mode.
Accumulations of dirt, snow or ice on the
on the sensor or cover may inhibit ACC
operation. Fitting of a vehicle front
protector or metallised badges may also
affect ACC operation.
If this occurs in ACC cruise/follow mode,
the audible alarm sounds and the
message DRIVER INTERVENE appears
briefly. The message ACC SENSOR
BLOCKED is then displayed. The system
is no longer active.
Detection issues can occur:
•
When driving on a different line to the
vehicle in front (A).
•
With vehicles which edge into your
lane which can only be detected once
they have moved fully into your lane
(B).
•
There may be issues with the
detection of vehicles in front when
going into and coming out of a bend
(C).
Clearing the obstruction allows the
system to return to normal operation. If
the obstruction is present when ACC is
inactive, e.g. on initial starting or with the
ACC system switched off, the message
ACC SENSOR BLOCKED will be
displayed.
Tires other than those recommended may
have different sizes. This can affect the
correct operation of the ACC.
In these cases ACC may brake late or
unexpectedly. The driver should stay alert
and intervene if necessary.

Parking Assist
Parking Assist
PARK ASSIST SYSTEM
Note:
(Where fitted)
•
For reliable operation, the sensors in
the front and rear bumpers should be
kept free from ice, frost and grime.
•
When using a high pressure spray the
sensors should only be sprayed briefly
and not from a distance of less than
20 cm (8 inches). Do not clean the
sensors with abrasive materials.
•
The front parking assist may sound
spurious tones if it detects a
frequency tone using the same band
as the sensors.
! WARNING:
It remains the driver’s responsibility to
be vigilant when reversing. Small
children or animals may not be
detected by the system.
Caution: It remains the driver’s
responsibility to detect obstacles and
estimate the car’s distance from them.
Some overhanging objects, barriers,
thin obstructions or painted surfaces
which could possibly cause damage to
the vehicle may not be detected by the
system. Always be vigilant when
reversing.
Rear parking assist
The Park Assist System is always
automatically switched on when the
ignition is turned on.
Caution:
•
If, for example, you are driving
within a confined space such as a
home garage, the outer sensors will
detect the side walls and after three
seconds will switch the tone off.
However, as movement continues,
the inner sensors will eventually
detect the rear wall and will start
the tone again.
•
The rear sensors are not active
when the gear selector is in neutral,
therefore care should be taken if
moving the vehicle as the tone will
not sound.
•
Do not clean the sensors with
abrasive or sharp objects.
When reverse gear is selected and the
ignition is on, rear parking assist
automatically provides an audible
proximity warning (to the nearest
detected object) when reversing the
vehicle, if obstacles are detected within
operating range of the rear of the vehicle,
as shown in the illustration below.
127
L
Parking Assist
Front parking assist provides an audible
proximity warning when driving forwards.
The front sensors only operate within a
fixed speed range in forward gears and
are not effective when moving forwards
above 15 km/h (9 mph) or when slowing
down until below 7 km/h (4½ mph).
(1) is approximately 60cm (24 inches).
(2) is approximately 160 cm (63 inches).
Front and rear parking assist
Objects are detected within the operating
range shown in the illustration (between
approximately 60 cm (24 inches) (1), 160
cm (63 inches) (2) and 80 cm (31 inches)
(3).
If an obstacle is detected at the front or
rear of the vehicle, a beep tone will be
heard from the front or rear speaker
respectively.
The beep tone increases in rate as the
vehicle approaches the obstacle.
When both front and rear parking assist
are fitted, a switch is located in the
overhead console.
The front or rear parking assist beep will
become continuous when the obstacle is
detected at or within 30 cm (12 inches) (1)
from the rear or approximate 25 cm (10
inches) (1) from the front of the vehicle.
Pressing the switch turns front and rear
parking assist on or off together. The
integral switch warning light will come on
when the system is turned off or if a fault
is detected in the system. A switch is not
provided when only rear parking assist is
fitted.
If the system has a fault when engaging
reverse gear or turning on the ignition,
then a single, three second tone will be
heard (only once per ignition cycle) and, if
fitted, the switch light will come on. The
system is automatically disabled when a
fault is detected.

automatically when reverse gear is
selected and the ignition switch is in
position II.
To move the gear selector from Park:
1. Turn the ignition key to position II or
start the engine.
2. Press the brake pedal.
D = Drive – All six gears are changed
automatically as required by the throttle
position and road speed.
Gear selector positions
2, 3, 4, 5 = Second, third, fourth, fifth – If
selected, the transmission operates
automatically but will not engage gears
higher than the one selected.
Note:
141
•
After selecting forward or reverse
drive ranges from Neutral or Park, wait
briefly for the transmission to engage
before accelerating.
•
V8 engines are limited to a maximum
speed of 4 500 rev/min when Neutral
or Park is selected.
•
V6 engines are limited to a maximum
speed of 7 000 rev/min, no matter
which position the gear selector is in.
L
Transmission
Drive to fifth
When driving in gear position D with sixth
gear engaged, the gear selector can be
shifted sideways across the gate to 5.
Provided that the vehicle’s speed is not
too great, the transmission will shift down
to fifth. Sixth gear will be inhibited until the
gear selector is moved back to D.
As well as shifting down, the gearshift
points are extended to give greater
performance. This mode is in effect for as
long as the pedal is fully pressed down.
Limp-home mode
In the unlikely event of an electrical or
mechanical failure, transmission
operation will be impaired. The vehicle
gear selector ranges P, R, N, D can still be
used to enable the vehicle to be driven to
a safe area.
Hill climbing and engine braking
When driving on roads with long downhill
gradients, selecting 3 or 2 (depending on
road/traffic conditions) will give engine
braking.
The driver should be aware that the
vehicle’s performance will be reduced
and must take this into account when
driving. In this event consult a Jaguar
Dealer immediately.
When the gear selector is moved from D,
5, 4 or 3 down to 2, downshift to second
gear will only take place at road speeds
below 64 km/h (40 mph).
Sport mode
Shift inhibit
Reverse is inhibited when the vehicle is
moving forward at speeds above 8 km/h
(5 mph).
Note: Reverse inhibit will not function in
limp-home mode.
Kickdown
Kickdown is operated when the
accelerator pedal is pressed fully down,
beyond the normal operating spring
pressure, to provide maximum engine
performance. Kickdown is used in
circumstances where rapid acceleration
is required, such as when overtaking.
The switch marked S on the J-gate
surround enables the driver to select
either normal N or sport S modes.
Kickdown causes the transmission to
change down to the lowest gear possible
to achieve maximum acceleration. The
gear engaged depends on the road speed
at the time of kickdown.
When sport mode is selected the
automatic transmission will operate
normally, but the gearshift points are
extended to make full use of the engine’s
power reserves.
142
R
Transmission
To select sport, press the switch. A red
light within the switch is illuminated to
indicate that sport mode has been
selected.
Final drive unit
Caution: Although the final drive unit is
a fill for life unit, if your vehicle is used
for a race event or test track day then
following the event the final drive unit
lubricant should be changed. Contact
your Jaguar Dealer.
To cancel sport, press the switch again.
Note: Both sides of the J-gate can be
used irrespective of the transmission
mode, e.g. with S selected the
transmission can be operated in full
automatic or by manual selection.
In addition to the switched transmission
modes (N and S) the transmission control
module will select shift patterns to suit
specific conditions.
Cruise control – When cruise control is
operating at set speed the transmission
selects a shift pattern to suit cruise
control operation.
Dynamic stability control (DSC) – When
DSC is switched ON and the system is
activated, the transmission selects a shift
pattern to suit traction control conditions.
Gradients – When the vehicle is being
driven on roads with uphill gradients, the
transmission adapts the shift pattern to
make better use of engine power and aid
engine cooling.
Under the conditions described above,
the relevant transmission mode will
override the N or S modes selected by the
driver. When such conditions no longer
exist, e.g. Cruise control switched OFF,
the transmission will revert to the shift
pattern previously selected by the driver,
i.e. N or S.

L
Braking System
Braking System
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM
(ABS)
There is no need for special braking
techniques, such as pumping the brakes,
to achieve optimum braking distances
and control on poor or slippery road
surfaces. Tires must be in good condition
to achieve maximum adhesion.
This system helps to prevent the road
wheels from locking and skidding during
emergency braking, assisting the driver to
maintain full steering and directional
stability.
During normal braking the ABS will not be
activated. However, if the braking force
applied begins to exceed tire/road
adhesion the ABS will automatically
activate, preventing the road wheels from
locking.
The factor controlling ultimate stopping
distance and cornering ability is tire/road
adhesion.
!
•
•
•
•
WARNING:
It remains the driver’s responsibility
to drive safely according to
prevailing conditions.
In these circumstances a pulsating effect
will be felt from the brake pedal indicating
that the system is functioning. The
pulsating effect is due to small
fluctuations in pressure supplied to the
brakes by the system to maintain full tire/
road adhesion.
The fact that a vehicle is fitted with
ABS must never allow the driver to
be tempted into taking risks which
could affect his/her safety or that of
other road users.
Under severe braking on some road
surfaces tire noise may be apparent even
though the wheels will at no time become
locked.
The addition of ABS cannot
overcome the consequences of
trying to stop in too short a
distance, cornering at too high a
speed, or the risk of aquaplaning.
ABS Monitoring
The ABS control module monitors the
ABS electrical system from ignition switch
ON to ignition switch OFF. Any
malfunction will be indicated by the
anti-lock warning light coming on.
The driver should always take road
conditions into account. A slippery
road surface always requires more
braking distance for a given speed,
even with ABS. A possible increase
in stopping distance compared to
locked wheels may occur during
ABS operation on slushy snow,
gravel, sand, or some heavily
corrugated or ridged warning
sections of road surfaces.
Should a fault develop in the ABS system,
the brake system will still operate
conventionally and with the same
standard of performance as vehicles not
equipped with ABS.
Caution: Consult a Jaguar Dealer
immediately if the warning light comes
on while driving, a system failure is
indicated.
ABS optimises tire/road adhesion under
maximum braking conditions though it
cannot provide increased cornering
ability.
144
R
Braking System
Emergency brake assist (EBA)
The EBA system measures the rate at
which the brake pressure increases. If the
system detects an emergency braking
situation, EBA automatically initiates the
full braking effect. This can reduce
stopping distances in critical situations,
which can help an inexperienced driver to
stop in the same distance as an
experienced driver.
! WARNING:
The EBA system is an additional safety
system; it is not intended to relieve the
driver of his/her responsibility for
exercising due care and attention when
driving.
Advice on ABS braking techniques
For optimum ABS performance these
instructions on braking techniques during
ABS operation should be followed:
•
Do not release brake pressure when
the pulsating effect is felt. Maintain a
constant pressure until the
manoeuvre is completed.
•
To familiarise yourself with the feel of
the brake pedal during ABS braking,
practise an emergency stop
procedure, always making sure it is
safe to do so. With the seat belts fitted
to all occupants, drive the vehicle at
32 km/h (20 mph) and brake sharply.
•
ABS enables the driver to steer
around obstacles during emergency
braking. However, the consequences
of turning sharply at high speed
cannot be overcome by the ABS.
145
•
Do not attempt to pump the brakes to
avoid skidding as this can interfere
with the ABS operation. The ABS will
not allow the wheels to skid under
normal road conditions.
•
The ABS will tend to keep the vehicle
straight during braking. Because
braking distances may increase under
certain road conditions, it is
necessary to plan and make turning
manoeuvres as early as possible.
L
Stability Control
Stability Control
DYNAMIC STABILITY
CONTROL (DSC)
The dynamic stability control system can
be switched OFF by pressing the switch
on the centre console. The warning light in
the instrument cluster will remain on and,
if fitted, a message DSC OFF will be
shown to indicate that the system has
been switched OFF. If the switch is
pressed again the system will switch ON.
Note: If cruise control is engaged it will
automatically disengage if stability control
activates.
A system malfunction is indicated by the
message DSC NOT AVAILABLE in the
message centre and an amber warning
light.
Dynamic stability control is operational
whenever the engine is running, unless it
has been switched off. If the system is
operating, the warning light in the
instrument cluster will flash.
The instrument cluster warning light will
also be lit.
The DSC system controls the anti-lock
braking system (ABS), traction control
and yaw control of the vehicle.
It is safe to drive the vehicle but the
system may not activate under wheel spin
or slide conditions. Report the fault to a
Jaguar Dealer as soon as possible.
Yaw control determines the vehicle’s
direction relative to the driver’s inputs
(sideslip and under/oversteer). It applies
braking pressure to individual wheels if
excessive variation is detected. This
ensures that the vehicle follows the
driver’s intended direction of travel.
!
•
Traction control will intervene to prevent
wheel spin, by automatically reducing the
power output from the engine and
applying braking to individual wheels.
WARNING:
The fact that the vehicle is fitted
with dynamic stability control must
never allow the driver to be
tempted into taking risks which
could affect his/her safety or that of
other road users. In all cases it
remains the driver’s responsibility
to drive safely according to the
prevailing conditions.
This improves acceleration, particularly
on surfaces with uneven friction, for
example, one wheel on ice the other on
tarmac.
•
ABS helps to prevent the road wheels
from locking and skidding during
emergency braking. When the system is
operating, the warning light in the
instrument cluster will flash.
When DSC is switched ON and the
system is activated, the transmission
selects a shift pattern to suit traction
control conditions.
146
It is recommended that when using
snow chains, DSC should be
switched OFF.

GENERAL DRIVING
INFORMATION
Engine oil consumption
A certain amount of oil consumption is
normal. The rate of consumption will
depend on the following:
! WARNING:
Ensure the parkbrake is on and the
gear selector is in position P or N
before attempting to start the engine.
Before driving off, check the gauges and
warning lights and messages. Take
special note of any warning light that is
on.
Seat belts are provided for your safety
and it is unwise, and in certain countries
illegal, to commence any journey,
however short, without wearing them.
•
The quality and viscosity of the oil.
•
The amount of oxidation and dilution
of the oil.
•
Climatic conditions.
•
The speed at which the engine is
being operated.
•
Road conditions.
Drivers should expect above normal
consumption when the engine is new, and
after running-in if high speeds are
sustained.
In prolonged high speed conditions
above 30°C (86°F) ambient temperature,
the vehicle’s maximum quoted speed
may not be achievable.
RUNNING-IN
By observing the following advisory
precautions you will ensure maximum
engine, transmission and brake life for
your vehicle:
Warming Up
Do not operate the engine at high speed
when first started but allow time for the
engine to warm up and the oil to circulate.
Engine Braking on Downhill Gradients
When driving on mountain roads with long
downhill gradients it is advisable to select
a low gear.
Use of Headlights in Daylight
When visibility is poor the headlights with
dipped beam setting should be switched
on so that the vehicle may be seen more
easily by other road users. The instrument
illumination dimmer control adjusts the
brightness of the panel lighting.
•
Allow the engine to warm up
thoroughly before operating at engine
speeds over 3 500 rev/min.
•
Vary the speed frequently.
•
From 1500 km (940 miles) onwards,
gradually increase performance of the
vehicle up to the permitted maximum
speed.
Brakes
To ensure that the brake pads can
‘bed-in’ evenly and reach their optimum
wear and performance condition, usually
within 480 km (300 miles), the following
points are recommended.
•
147
Where possible, avoid heavy braking
or rough usage of the brakes as this
can result in damage being caused to
the brake pads and discs.
L
Driving Information
•
Avoid prolonged use of the brakes, for
example, when descending severe
gradients.
•
Frequent light application of the
brakes is desirable. This helps to fully
‘bed-in’ the brake pads before the
normal running-in period is completed
and the vehicle is operated at high
speeds, when maximum brake
efficiency will be required.
Windscreen wiper blades
Before driving away, clear any ice from
the windscreen and check that the wiper
blades are free. Switching on the heated
screen will accelerate this process.
Frost precautions
The correct concentration of coolant must
be maintained at all times when
replenishing or refilling the cooling
system.
The above equally applies when new
discs or pads have been fitted.
TOURING
Automatic transmission
To allow the automatic transmission to
uniquely adapt to the vehicle, the
transmission should be operated in
normal mode (i.e. sport mode switch not
illuminated) for the first 800 km (500
miles).
Foreign travel
Before planning foreign travel, check with
a motoring organisation to ensure that
your vehicle will comply with legal
requirements of the countries you intend
to visit.
It is advisable to carry vital spare parts to
ensure serviceability in a remote area.
Final drive unit
During the first 1 500 km (940 miles) and if
at any time a new final drive unit is fitted:
•
International motoring organisations are
helpful for all aspects of long distance
touring advice.
Avoid full throttle applications and do
not exceed 190 km/h (120 mph).
Observe the national speed limits in
the country in which you are travelling.
•
Do not participate in motor racing
events, test track days, sports driving
schools or similar.
•
Avoid towing during running-in
period.
In some countries it is a legal requirement
to carry spare vehicle bulbs.
First aid kit
A first aid kit is compulsory equipment in
certain countries. Your Jaguar Dealer can
supply a first aid kit.
Fire extinguishers
Many countries make it compulsory to
carry a fire extinguisher. Your Jaguar
Dealer can supply and fit one, see page
190.
WINTER DRIVING
Freeing a frozen door lock
Caution: Do not apply a proprietary
lock de-icer through the keyhole.
Fuel in containers
Some countries forbid the carrying of fuel
in containers, as do most ferry and
hovercraft operators.
Should the lock become frozen, warm the
end of the key before use.
148
R
Driving Information
Cellular radio telephones
Ask your motoring organisation about the
use of cellular radio telephones before
travelling abroad, as some countries
exercise controls on the importation and
use of such equipment.
The warning triangle with its stand legs
folded flat, is mounted on the inside of the
luggage compartment lid.
In an emergency, remove the triangle and
unfold its stand legs. Place the triangle in
the road in accordance with local traffic
regulations to give oncoming traffic
warning of an immobilised vehicle.
Roof-rack
The Jaguar approved roof-rack should be
used.
TOWING A TRAILER
The maximum load, including the weight
of the roof-rack, must not exceed the load
rating indicated on the roof-rack bars and
must be deducted from the vehicle
maximum luggage load. Do not exceed
the roof load capacity (refer to page 230).
Your Jaguar Dealer, and the main
motoring organisations can advise you on
towing and towing weight capacities.
When carrying items on the roof, make
sure the load is distributed evenly. It is
advisable to place heavier items as low in
the vehicle as possible. Make sure items
placed on the roof do not obstruct the
sunroof.
•
Maximum braked towing weight is
permissible, provided long periods of
uphill driving on gradients over 8%
are not undertaken.
•
In high altitude mountainous regions,
the thinner atmosphere can reduce
engine performance. Above 1 000
metres (3 280 feet) the stipulated
maximum permitted gross train
weight must be reduced by 10% for
every 1 000 metres (3 280 feet) in
altitude.
The following are important points of
safety, stability and comfort upon which
further advice should be sought:
Always ensure that items are securely
fastened to the roof-rack or load carrier,
to avoid the load from shifting.
Loads on the roof-rack may affect vehicle
handling, especially in crosswinds or
when cornering. Where possible, avoid
heavy braking and sudden acceleration.
Example: Driving on a mountain road
of a maximum of 2 400 metres (7 874
feet) means a reduction of the gross
train weight by 20%.
Jaguar warning triangle
(Where fitted)
A warning triangle to give traffic advanced
notice of a disabled vehicle is compulsory
in many countries. A triangle, designed to
international standards, is standard
equipment in certain countries.
Hazard warning lights must be used with
the warning triangle.
149
•
The curbside weight of the vehicle can
be found on page 229.
•
When towing, the weight of the
tow-bar assembly must be deducted
from the permissible maximum load
(see page 230).
•
When towing at the maximum
permissible rear axle load keep within
legal towing speeds.
L
Driving Information
•
Tires must be inflated to the normal
(Higher) pressure shown on the tire
pressure label, see page 210.
•
The recommended maximum tow-ball
nose weight is shown on page 230.
Having a lower nose weight or
exceeding the maximum nose weight
limit may impair the vehicle’s
handling.
•
When towing with a vehicle with
automatic transmission it is advisable
to keep the transmission selected to
D, normal driving mode, do not select
S Sport mode.
•
Avoid heavy braking. As the overrun
brake on the trailer is not connected
to the ABS, heavy trailer braking could
critically affect the stability of the
outfit as a whole.
•
Ensure that the towing vehicle’s
engine, transmission, suspension,
brakes and tires are fully efficient and
regularly serviced. Similarly check the
wheels, tires, brakes and wheel
bearings of the trailer.
•
Adjust the headlight level to avoid
dazzling other road users.
•
Caution:
•
When not in use, it is recommended
that the removable tow-ball is
either securely stowed in the
luggage compartment or,
preferably, not in the vehicle. Do
not leave it loose in the vehicle.
•
It is essential that only Jaguar
tow-bar and Jaguar electrical
tow-bar kit are supplied and fitted
by a Jaguar Dealer.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
FUEL TANK FILLING
Before refuelling, switch off the ignition
and remove the key.
Note: Do not leave the ignition key in the
vehicle; vehicles have been stolen from
garage service/filling stations whilst the
driver is absent from the vehicle. It is
recommended that the vehicle is locked, if
left unattended.
Caution: Do not put additives of any
kind (fuel or oil) in the fuel tank.
Additives could reduce engine life or
affect exhaust emissions.
!
•
•
WARNING:
Fuel vapour is highly flammable and
in confined spaces is explosive and
toxic. In the event of inadvertent
spillage, and before refuelling,
always switch OFF the engine. Do
not use exposed flame or light. Do
not smoke. Do not inhale fumes.
Do not fill the tank so that fuel is
visible in the fuel filler intake tube.
This could cause spillage and
danger from exposed fuel.
The fuel filler flap release switch is located
in the knee bolster switchpack below the
fascia. The filler flap is on the right-hand
side of the vehicle.
To remove the filler cap, turn it
anti-clockwise approximately a ¼ turn,
until a slight resistance is met, continue
turning to release it. Remove the cap from
the filler neck.

Fuel and Refuelling
FUEL CAPACITY
A label on the inside of the fuel filler flap
serves as a reminder to fill the tank with
the correct fuel.
Avoid the risk of running out of fuel and
never intentionally drive the car when the
fuel gauge indicates that the tank is
empty. When refuelling your vehicle after
the fuel gauge reads empty, you may not
be able to add the fuel quantity shown
below as there will be a small reserve
remaining in the tank.
The cap, which is held by a retaining
strap, can be stowed on the hook on the
flap to allow easy access to fill the tank.
When filling, the dispenser nozzle must be
inserted into the filler neck sufficiently to
open the trap door for fuel to flow into the
fuel tank. For quickness and to
completely fill the tank, ensure that the
fuel nozzle rests on the bottom of the filler
neck as shown. Fill the tank until the filler
nozzle automatically shuts off. Filling

FUEL REQUIREMENTS –
GASOLINE ENGINES
The continuous use of high quality fuel
makes the need for additional additives
unnecessary. This will help to protect the
engine components against corrosion,
carbon deposit formation and prevent the
fuel injection system from clogging.
The filler neck of the fuel tank is a small
diameter to suit the unleaded fuel pump
nozzle and will prevent the larger diameter
leaded fuel nozzle from entering the filler
neck.
If in doubt your local Jaguar Dealer will
advise on which fuel must be used in your
vehicle.
Caution: Vehicles with gasoline
engines must only be filled with
Unleaded Fuel. Leaded fuel will
damage the catalytic converters.
Emission control components
Owing to the legislative requirements or
options available in some countries, a
Jaguar Dealer should be consulted where
any doubt exists as to the precise
emission control system specification of
this vehicle.
Unleaded fuel
All vehicles are fitted with a catalytic
system and can only use unleaded fuel.
Unleaded fuel must be used for the
emission control system to operate
properly. Its use will also reduce spark
plug fouling, exhaust system corrosion
and engine oil deterioration.
Use only Premium unleaded gasoline with
a minimum anti-knock index (AKI) of 91.
153
L
Fuel and Refuelling
Using unleaded fuel with a lower AKI than
recommended can cause persistent,
heavy spark knock (a metallic rapping
noise). If severe, this can lead to engine
damage.
Methanol
Some fuels contain methanol (methyl or
wood alcohol). If you use fuels containing
methanol the fuels must also contain
co-solvents and corrosion inhibitors for
methanol. Also, do not use fuels that
contain more than three per cent
methanol even if they contain co-solvents
and corrosion inhibitors. Fuel system
damage or vehicle performance problems
resulting from the use of such fuels is not
the responsibility of Jaguar Cars Limited,
and may not be covered under the
warranty.
If a heavy spark knock is detected even
when using fuel of the recommended
octane rating, or if you hear steady spark
knock while holding a steady speed on
level roads consult a Jaguar Dealer to
have the problem corrected. Failure to do
so is misuse of the vehicle, for which
Jaguar Cars Limited, is not responsible.
However, occasional light spark knock for
a short time while accelerating or driving
up hill, may occur.
Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE)
Unleaded fuel containing an oxygenate
known as MTBE can be used provided
the ratio of MTBE to conventional fuel
does not exceed 15%.
Fuels containing alcohol
Caution: Take care not to spill fuel
during refuelling. Fuel containing
alcohol can cause paint damage, which
may not be covered under the
warranty.
MTBE is an ether based compound,
derived from petroleum, which has been
specified by several refiners as the
substance to enhance the octane rating of
fuel.
Some fuel suppliers sell fuel containing
alcohol without advertising its presence.
Where uncertainty exists check with the
service station operator.
Reformulated gasoline
Several petroleum companies have
announced the availability of reformulated
fuels. These fuels are specially designed
to further reduce vehicle emissions.
Note: Some difficulty in starting may be
encountered when using alcohol blended
fuel.
Ethanol
Fuels containing up to 10% ethanol (grain
alcohol) may be used. Ensure the fuel has
octane ratings no lower than those
recommended for unleaded fuel.
Jaguar fully supports all efforts to protect
and maintain ambient air quality and
encourages the use of reformulated
gasoline where available.
Most drivers will not notice any operating
difference with fuel containing ethanol. If
a difference is detected, the use of
conventional unleaded fuel should be
resumed.

CATALYTIC CONVERTERS
•
The use of catalytic converters
increases exhaust system
temperatures, therefore, do not
operate or park the vehicle in areas
where combustible materials such as
dry grass or leaves may come into
contact with the exhaust system.
•
Do not run a gasoline engine with
either a spark plug lead disconnected
or a spark plug removed. Do not use
any device that requires an insert into
a spark plug hole in order to generate
air pressure e.g. tire pump, paint
spray attachment etc., as this could
also result in catalytic converter
damage.
•
The vehicle is designed for normal
road use. Below are examples of
abuse which could damage the
catalytic converters and vehicle:
A few precautions on the use of vehicles
fitted with catalytic converters are
necessary. These are:
•
In order to maintain the efficiency of
the emission control system it is
essential that the correct fuel is used.
If the vehicle is fitted with a gasoline
engine, never refuel with leaded fuel:
this will seriously damage the catalytic
converters. If the vehicle is fitted with
a diesel engine, use only high quality
diesel fuel to specification EN 590 or
equivalent.
•
Heavy impact on the converter
casings must be avoided.
•
A correctly tuned engine optimises
exhaust emissions, performance and
fuel economy. It is recommended that
the vehicle is regularly maintained.
•
The engine settings must not be
altered; they have been established to
ensure that the vehicle will comply
with stringent exhaust emission
regulations. Incorrect engine settings
could cause unusually high catalytic
converter temperatures and thus
result in damage to the converter and
vehicle. If adjustment to the settings is
considered necessary, this should be
performed by a Jaguar Dealer.
•
Competition or off-road use.
Excessive engine speed.
Overloading the vehicle.
Switching off the engine whilst in
gear.
These may lead to a dangerous
condition due to excessively high
catalytic converter temperatures.
Do not continue to operate the vehicle
if any engine malfunction is evident;
malfunctions should be rectified
immediately. For instance, misfire,
loss of engine performance,
excessive oil consumption or engine
run-on may lead to unusually high
catalytic converter temperatures and
may result in damage to the
converters and vehicle.

Climate Control
Climate Control
INTRODUCTION
Use of air conditioning
Air conditioning is an integral part of the
climate control system, providing cooled
and dehumidified air for occupant
comfort; the dry airflow is also effective in
preventing misting of the windows.
The cabin is supplied with filtered air from
a fully automatic electronic climate
control system which also provides
individual selection of temperature (dual
zone) by the front occupants.
While the air conditioner can be manually
switched off, it is recommended that it is
used in all climatic conditions throughout
the year, preferably in AUTO mode.
The system can be overridden by manual
controls.
The climate control panel is located in the
centre console above the radio and audio
controls. There are two variants:
•
•
Close all windows and the sunroof when
the air conditioning is on to ensure
satisfactory operation.
A dedicated control panel with LCD
(liquid crystal display) screen, refer to
page 159.
Note: When air recirculation is selected,
the sound of the airflow will change: this is
normal.
A multi-function touch control and
display unit shared with navigation
and other systems (see the
touch-screen display handbook).
Use of air recirculation
The air conditioner/heater system is
supplied with fresh air via an intake flap.
RECOMMENDED OPERATION
Closing the flap causes the air inside the
vehicle to be recirculated. This helps to
prevent unpleasant odours from being
drawn into the vehicle and also to improve
the performance of the air conditioner in
very hot conditions. However, the use of
recirculated air will cause screen misting
after a short period and should only be
used as necessary.
Automatic climate control
Automatic climate control provides
efficient regulation of the vehicle
environment without constant
adjustments from the occupant.
Sensors inside the vehicle monitor
temperature, humidity and direct sunlight.
In response, the electronic control system
automatically adjusts the heat input,
blower speed, air intake and airflow
distribution so as to maintain the selected
temperature(s) and reduce misting.
In AUTO mode, the air intake flap is
controlled automatically. If required, air
recirculation may be manually selected
for either a short or indefinite period.
Automatic operation provides optimum
comfort under most driving conditions.
!
WARNING:
To prevent humidity build up inside the
vehicle and possible screen misting,
avoid driving with the air conditioning
system off or in manual air
recirculation for prolonged periods.
It is recommended that automatic
control (AUTO) is selected as the
normal operating mode.

GENERAL POINTS
To ensure the satisfactory operation of
the climate control system, note the
following points:
•
Ensure that the external grille at the
base of the windscreen, which
provides fresh air for the climate
control system, is kept clear of leaves,
snow or obstructions.
•
A solar sensor is mounted on the
centre top of the fascia, (as shown on
the next page) (1). Ensure that this
sensor is not covered.
•
Temperature and humidity sensors
are located behind the small grille (2),
(as shown on the next page). Do not
cover or obstruct the opening.
•
Air ducts under the front seats supply
the rear passenger footwells (as
shown on the next page). Objects or
material placed under the seats may
block or obstruct the open ducts.
•
The external air intake to the air
conditioner/heater system is fitted
with a filter. Ensure that the filter is
changed at the specified service
intervals to maintain efficient
operation.
•
If the air conditioning system is not
used frequently, it should be run
briefly at least once each week, with a
cold setting, to prevent the seals from
drying out with subsequent refrigerant
leaks.
•
Moisture removed from the air by the
air conditioning unit is discharged
onto the road underneath the vehicle.
After stopping, puddles of water may
form underneath the vehicle: this is
normal.

ROLLING START
If the electric parkbrake was applied
before the battery was discharged (e.g.
vehicle unused for a long period), it will
not be possible to release the parkbrake.
Do not push or tow start a vehicle with
automatic transmission even with the
parkbrake released. With a discharged
battery it will also not be possible to move
the drive selector from the P position.
Caution:
•
If using a jump start vehicle, under
no circumstances should the
vehicles come into contact with
each other. This could establish an
earth connection, which may cause
sparks and damage.
•
Do not run the jump start vehicle’s
engine when boost starting a
Jaguar vehicle. If the jump start
vehicle’s engine is running and the
jump leads are disconnected,
damage to the Jaguar vehicle’s
electrical system will result.
•
The booster battery must be of the
12 volt type.
!
WARNING:
A vehicle start by pushing or towing
must not be attempted. Only jump lead
starting or the fitting of a fully charged
battery is recommended.
USING JUMP LEADS
Both the booster and discharged battery
should be treated with great care when
using jump leads. Always use high quality
leads capable of carrying the starter
current of the vehicle to be started.
Before commencing, the following
precautions must be taken:
•
When the battery of another vehicle is
being used, ensure that the vehicles
do not touch. Alternatively, remove
the charged battery and place near to,
not on, the vehicle with the
discharged battery.
•
Ensure that both vehicles have all
electrical services OFF, the
parkbrakes applied and neutral
(manual transmission) or P (automatic
transmission) selected.
Where the jump leads are of a
different colour, e.g. red and black,
use red for positive (+). This aids
identification and helps to avoid
crossing positive (+) to negative (–).
Take extra care to avoid crossing the
polarity when using cables of the
same colour.
To gain access to the battery, fold the
luggage compartment floor panel
forward. If a space saver spare wheel is
fitted it will be necessary to remove the
under floor stowage tray.
165
L
Emergency Starting
Procedure for using jump leads
3. Attach one end of the black jump lead
to the negative (–) terminal of the
booster battery and the other end to
an earth point on the vehicle being
started. (If your Jaguar has the
discharged battery use only the spare
wheel locking stud, as shown.) The
ground connection point must be at
least 30.5 cm (12 inches) from the
discharged battery. Make sure that a
good connection is made.
4. When started, allow the engine to idle
for five minutes before disconnecting
the cables.
5. Disconnect the black jump lead from
the earth point and the booster
battery negative (–) terminal.
6. Disconnect the red jump lead from the
positive (+) terminals of both batteries.
7. Refit the positive (+) terminal cover.
8. Refit the luggage compartment floor
panels.
The following procedure must be followed
exactly, being careful not to cause sparks:
After starting the engine, it may be
necessary to reset the electric parkbrake
(refer to page 134). See also After battery
reconnection, page 203.
1. Unclip the battery positive (+) terminal
cover.
2. Attach one end of the red jump lead to
the positive (+) terminal of the booster
battery and the other end to the
positive (+) terminal of the discharged
battery. Make sure that a good
connection is made.
Caution: Do not connect the negative
jump lead directly to the negative
(–) terminal of the discharged
vehicle.

OVERVIEW
Be prepared for a flat tire. Know where
equipment is stowed and read the wheel
changing and jacking instructions
carefully.
If a wheel change is required, pull off the
road completely. Park on ground which is
as level and solid as possible. Ensure that
the vehicle is clear of any objects that will
obstruct the safe removal of the wheel.
Switch on the hazard warning lights, and
where legally required, display a warning
triangle.

WARNING:
It can be dangerous to change a
wheel when the vehicle is on a
slope or soft, uneven ground.
Wheels are extremely heavy. Take
care when lifting and particularly
when removing and replacing a
wheel in its storage position in the
luggage compartment.
SPARE WHEEL LOCATION
The spare wheel and jacking equipment
are stored under the luggage
compartment floor panel.
To remove the spare wheel, fold the
luggage compartment floor panel towards
the rear seats. Remove the tray
containing the jacking equipment to gain
access to the wheel. Unscrew the
retaining nut and remove the spare wheel.

TEMPORARY-USE SPARE
WHEEL
To remove the nut, the front and rear
grooves must be aligned. Locate the key
socket in the grooves and push it fully
over both parts of the nut. Fit the wheel
nut wrench over the key socket and
loosen the locking wheel nut.
Observe the following warnings before
using the wheel:
!
•
WARNING:
Please note temporary-use spare
wheel warning label. Adhere to
instructions on the label. Failure to
comply can be dangerous.
•
When a temporary-use spare wheel
is fitted, drive with caution and
replace with the specified wheel
and tire as soon as possible.
•
Do not fit more than one
temporary-use spare wheel and tire
assembly at one time.
•
The temporary-use spare wheel
must be inflated to the correct
pressure.
•
Temporary-use spare wheel,
maximum speed is 80 km/h
(50 mph).
Note: Maintenance information for the
temporary-use spare wheel is the same as
given for normal tires. See page 219.
Where Jaguar locking wheel nuts are
fitted (one on each wheel), they can only
be removed using the correct key socket.
Attempting to remove the nut without the
correct key socket (such as attempted
theft) or with the socket not located over
the rear part of the nut, will cause the front
part (1) only to turn.
The locking wheel nut comprises two
grooved parts, front and rear, which must
be turned together to allow the nut to be
fitted or removed.
If this has happened, rotate the front part
with the key socket until the grooves are
re-aligned and then push the socket fully
over the nut.
LOCKING WHEEL NUTS
Should a new key socket be required,
contact your Jaguar Dealer. Proof of
vehicle ownership will be required.

WHEEL CHANGING
1. Ensure that all passengers are in a
safe place, clear of the vehicle.
Before raising the vehicle slacken but do
not remove the wheel nuts.
2. Apply the parkbrake and select gear
position P (Park) or select a low gear
on a manual transmission vehicle.
Observe the instructions printed on the
jack.
Use the jack only for lifting the vehicle
during wheel changing, and only use the
jack which is stored in the vehicle.
3. Ensure that the jack is placed on firm
and level ground.
Note: When one rear wheel is lifted off the
ground the selection of a low gear on
manual vehicles or automatic
transmission P (Park) position will not
prevent the vehicle from moving and
possibly slipping off the jack.
Do not start or run the engine while the
vehicle is only supported by a jack.
There are four jacking points, two each
side of the vehicle on the underside of the
floor. These provide positive location for
the jack. The front jacking point is
approximately 18 cm (7 inches) from the
front wheel and the rear is approximately
28 cm (11 inches) forward of the rear
wheel.
!
•
•
WARNING:
Before attempting to lift the vehicle
with the jack, chock the wheel
diagonally opposite to the wheel
being replaced to prevent the
vehicle from rolling when jacked
up. A wheel chock is supplied with
the jacking equipment for this
purpose.
The simplest way to correctly locate the
jacking point is to feel along the sill panel
to the cut-away portion and then fit the
jack to the body, not to the sill panel.
Never work under the vehicle using
only the jack as a support, always
use axle stands or suitable
supports under the jacking points.
169
L
Wheel Changing
Caution: Ensure before raising the
vehicle that the jack is correctly
positioned to avoid any damage to the
vehicle sills or sill panels. Use only the

alternately, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
Place the jack squarely beneath the
appropriate jacking point. Ensure that the
jack head is fully engaged. Carefully raise
the vehicle by turning the handle. Stop
jacking the vehicle when the tire just
clears the ground. Minimum tire lift gives
maximum vehicle stability.
At the earliest opportunity have the wheel
nuts tightened with a torque wrench to
125 Nm (92 lbf.ft.).
This torque must not be exceeded.
Stowing the equipment
Stow the replaced road wheel in the
luggage compartment, position the wheel
and secure with the retaining nut.
Remove the wheel nuts and the wheel.
When changing the alloy road wheels,
transfer the centre badge to the
replacement wheel (when a full size spare
wheel is used). Using the plastic tipped
end of the wheel nut wrench handle from
the inside of the wheel, push the centre
badge from its housing. Push the centre
badge into the replacement wheel. If the
temporary-use spare wheel is to be fitted,
keep the centre badge safely and fit it to
the repaired full size wheel when it has
been refitted.
Place the storage tray with the jack and
wrench over the wheel.
Reposition the luggage compartment
floor panel.
Note: Examine the jack occasionally and
clean and grease the threads to ensure it
is always ready for an emergency.
!
WARNING:
When the temporary-use spare wheel
has been fitted, drive with caution and
replace with the specified wheel and

EXTINGUISHER
Operating the fire extinguisher
Many countries make it compulsory to
carry a fire extinguisher. Your Jaguar
Dealer can supply and fit one.
FACTORY FITTED FIRE
EXTINGUISHER
Mexican vehicles have a factory fitted fire
extinguisher which contains 1.1 kg (2.2 lb)
of BC powder pressurised with nitrogen
to a working pressure of 12 bar (180 psi)
at 20°C (68°F).
This extinguisher can be used on liquid
fires, electrical equipment fires and, if no
explosion risk, gasoline fires.
1. Unclip and remove the extinguisher
from the bracket.
2. Put your finger through the yellow
safety wedge ring (A) and pull hard to
remove the wedge. The operating
lever will be exposed.
!
•
•
WARNING:
Do not test the fire extinguisher
prior to use. Partial discharge will
render the extinguisher inoperative.
3. Hold the extinguisher upright and aim
at the base of the fire.
Do not use the fire extinguisher
closer than 2.4 m (8 feet) to the
base of a liquid fire as the force may
splatter the burning liquid to the
surrounding area.
4. Press the lever down firmly.
5. Release the lever to stop the flow of
powder.
Maintenance
Every six months:
•
Remove the extinguisher from its
bracket and check that the nozzle is
clear.
•
Check that the safety wedge strap (B)
is secure.
Check the pressure gauge on the base of
the extinguisher. If the gauge is in the red
area report it to your Jaguar Dealer
immediately as the extinguisher may not
work in an emergency.

General Maintenance
Maintenance
INTRODUCTION
Always use a hand cream to protect the
skin from oil contamination. Avoid contact
with the skin as far as possible and wash
thoroughly after any contact. Keep oils
out of reach of children.
Owners are responsible for ensuring that
the vehicle is regularly serviced at the
correct distance/time intervals as
specified in the Maintenance Schedules.
The first part of this section deals with
regular servicing.
PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
Care should be taken at all times to avoid
polluting the environment. Used
materials, e.g. batteries, tires, fluids and
filters, should be disposed of at suitable
disposal facilities in accordance with local
legislation. If in doubt, clarification should
be sought from your local
authority/regulator.
The condition of the tires is of the utmost
importance. Advice about tire wear and
correct usage is given in this section. If in
any doubt about the condition of your
tires, contact a Jaguar Dealer.
REGULAR SERVICING
Each vehicle is given a full Pre-Delivery
Inspection to ensure that all systems
function correctly and the vehicle meets
its specification.
ENGINE AND THROTTLE
SETTINGS
Do not attempt to make adjustments to
the engine or throttle settings. Many
vehicle systems are controlled by
complex electronic devices and require
specialist knowledge. Such work should
be entrusted to a Jaguar Dealer.
Regular maintenance and servicing is the
responsibility of the owner. Failure to
implement maintenance at the
recommended intervals could result in
deterioration of vehicle performance and
possible infringement of regulations.
HYDRAULIC FLUID
Your Jaguar Dealer will be pleased to
arrange periodic servicing in accordance
with the Passport to Service or Service
Portfolio book.
The brake hydraulic fluid in the master
cylinder and brake operating system uses
Shell DOT4 ESL or a low viscosity DOT 4
brake fluid that meets ISO 4925 class 6
requirements.
Battery/ignition isolator switches
Non-approved battery isolator switches,
which disconnect the power supply to all
electrical circuits, are not recommended.

CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
Gasoline engine oil level
The oil consumption of your engine is
influenced by many factors: new engines
reach the normal value only after
approximately 5 000 km (3 000 miles).
Under high loads your engine will also
consume more oil.
Check the oil level regularly with the
vehicle on flat, level ground.
Refer to pages 194, 195 for dipstick and
oil filler locations.
It is preferable to check the oil level after
the vehicle has been standing, that is,
with the engine completely cold.
If the engine has been started do not
check the oil level until the engine has
reached normal operating temperature.
Stop the engine and wait for a minimum of
five minutes to allow the oil to drain back
into the sump.
Caution: Do not use oil additives of any
type. Use only specified lubricants.
Remove the dipstick (1) and wipe clean
with a non-fluffy cloth. Replace fully, then
withdraw the dipstick. If the oil level is
above the lower of the two dots on the
dipstick then no additional oil is required.
If the oil level reaches the lower of the two
dots, remove the oil filler cap (2) and add
oil, to the quantity and specification
shown in ‘Recommended Engine Oil’ on
page 197.
Refit the dipstick and filler cap and
securely tighten the filler cap by hand.

Checking and Top-up
RECOMMENDED ENGINE OIL
SAE VISCOSITY RATING
Jaguar recommends
For climates ranging from –30°C (-22°F)
to +50°C (+122°F), the following oil
viscosities may be used:
When the oil level is at the lower dipstick
mark, add 1litres (1.1 US quart) of oil.
0W–30
Oil specification – Gasoline engine
5W–30 (preferred)
API SL/EC and ILSAC GF-3.
0W–40
When topping up between
oil changes, make sure that
you use oil that has the
correct quality level (API
service) and viscosity grade.
5W–40
Note: For maximum fuel economy, 5w-30
oil is recommended.
It is recommended that the oil level is
topped up using oil of the same viscosity.
If you are unsure which oil viscosity is
used in your vehicle, your Jaguar Dealer
will be able to advise.
Caution: Your vehicle’s warranty may
be invalidated if damage is caused by
use of improper engine oil. Low quality
or obsolete oils do NOT provide the
protection required by modern, high
performance engines.
If you are operating this vehicle in
climates outside the above temperature
range, contact your Jaguar Dealer for
advice.
Failure to use an oil that meets the
required specification could cause
excessive engine wear, a build up of
sludge and deposits, and increase
pollution. It could also lead to engine
failure.

CHECK POWER STEERING
FLUID LEVEL
CHECK BRAKE/CLUTCH FLUID
RESERVOIR
The manual transmission clutch fluid is
shared with the brake fluid in a common
reservoir. Refer to pages 194, 195 for
brake/clutch fluid reservoir location.
Caution: It is imperative that the power
steering system does not become
contaminated in any way. Always
dispense fluid from a fresh sealed
container and clean the area around
the reservoir neck both before and
after topping up. Never return drained
fluid to the system.
Caution:
Refer to pages 194, 195 for power
steering fluid reservoir location.
•
While handling brake fluid, take
extreme care; brake fluid must not
contact the vehicle paintwork.
•
Always use fresh, clean fluid from a
new container. Never introduce
used brake fluid into the system.
The fluid is visible through the translucent
casing of the reservoir and must be
maintained at the MAX mark.
Check the fluid level when the engine is
COLD and the vehicle is on a flat, level
surface.
Wipe clean and remove the filler cap from
the reservoir; take great care to prevent
any foreign matter from entering.
!
WARNING:
The fluid level will drop as the brake
pads wear. If the level is very low report
the loss of fluid to the nearest Jaguar
Dealer. Do not drive the vehicle until
the cause is rectified.
Check that the fluid level is between the
marks on the dipstick or between the
MAX/MIN indications on the outside of
the transparent reservoir.
If necessary, top up with DEXTRON III
power steering fluid, DO NOT OVERFILL.
If necessary, top up as follows.
Before removing the cap, clean the
reservoir and cap thoroughly with a
non-fluffy cloth to ensure that no foreign
matter enters the reservoir.
Refit the filler cap.
Should the level be very low, report the
loss of fluid to the nearest Jaguar Dealer.
198
R
Checking and Top-up
Unscrew the filler cap and top up to the
MAX level. Use Shell DOT4 ESL or a low
viscosity DOT 4 brake fluid that meets ISO
4925 class 6 requirements.
Refer to pages 194, 195 for coolant
header tank location.
The coolant level MAX and MIN
indicators are located inside the reservoir
and are only visible when looking into the
filler neck with the cap removed.
Refit the filler cap securely.
To avoid contamination should any brake
fluid be spilt, replace the cap on the
reservoir before cleaning the spilt fluid
from the vehicle.
Check the level only when the engine is
cold. The coolant level should be between
the MAX and MIN indicators. If persistent
coolant loss is noticed, have a Jaguar
Dealer investigate the cause immediately.
CHECK COOLANT LEVEL
Topping up
!
•
•
WARNING:
Do not allow anti-freeze to make
contact with skin or eyes. If this
should happen, rinse the affected
area immediately with plenty of
water.
Coolant fluid is toxic and in
concentrated form is flammable. Be
sure to observe all warnings
indicated on the container.
Caution: Anti-freeze will damage
paintwork. Avoid spillage.
Top up with a mixture of 50% water and
50% anti-freeze until the coolant is
between the MAX and MIN indicators
inside the header tank. Use anti-freeze to
specification WSS M97B44, coloured
orange, Extended Life Coolant.
!
WARNING:
Do not remove the coolant header tank
filler/pressure cap while the engine is
hot. If the cap must be removed,
protect the hands against escaping
steam and slowly turn the cap
anti-clockwise until the steam
pressure starts to escape. Leave the
cap in this position until the pressure is
released, and then remove the cap
completely.
Refit the filler cap and hand-tighten
securely until the ratchet operates.
Engine anti-freeze
When used at the correct concentration,
anti-freeze not only protects the engine

L
Checking and Top-up
The cooling system should always be
topped up or refilled with the specified
anti-freeze at the correct concentration.
Fill to just below the neck with Jaguar
Windscreen Washer Fluid diluted with
clean, preferably soft water as specified in
the instructions on the bottle. Do not over
fill.
This 50/50% mixture gives frost
protection for temperatures down
to –40°C (–40°F).
Using a non-approved fluid may
adversely affect the wiper blade rubber,
resulting in ineffectual and noisy wiping.
Do not mix any other anti-freeze with that
specified; inferior quality anti-freeze may
be ineffective in maintaining adequate
frost and corrosion protection to the
cooling system.
Cold weather precautions
To prevent damage to the pump during
freezing conditions, use Jaguar
Windscreen Washer Fluid at the strength
shown on the bottle, for the anticipated
ambient temperature.
The coolant solution may remain in the
cooling system for five years or
250 000 km (156 000 miles) after which
the system should be drained, flushed
and refilled.

The exterior of the battery should be
occasionally wiped clean to remove any
dirt or grease.
Check, and if necessary replenish, the
electrolyte level when the battery is fully
charged.
If a new battery is to be fitted, it must be
the same type as the original.
Battery lead disconnection
The use of unapproved batteries is not
recommended and could invalidate the
vehicle warranty.
Note: The service life of the battery is
dependent on its condition of charge. It
must always be sufficiently charged for
the battery to last an optimum length of
time.
We recommend that the battery charge is
checked frequently if the vehicle is used
mostly for short distance trips, or if it is
not used for long periods of time.
Caution:
BATTERY CHARGING
•
Under no circumstances should a
battery be disconnected whilst the
ignition circuit is live, as permanent
damage to the instrument cluster
may occur.

Remove grease or tar with Jaguar Tar
Remover or methylated spirit (alcohol).
White spirit is also effective, but must not
be applied to rubber, particularly the
windscreen wiper blades.
Do not use a dry cloth to wipe dirty
paintwork. Dust and gritty substances are
abrasive and will scratch the paintwork.
Remove dirt using a cellulose sponge and
plenty of warm (never hot) water. Rinse off
with clean water and dry using a clean,
damp chamois leather.
Glass surfaces
To avoid scratching glass surfaces, do
not clean dirty glass with dry paper or
cloth. Use clean, warm water and a
chamois leather which is reserved for
glass only.
Do not use household soaps or
detergents. The use of Jaguar Vehicle
Shampoo is recommended.
The following products will ensure glass
surfaces and windscreen wipers are kept
in good condition:
Do not direct hoses at full force around

CARE OF ALLOY ROAD
WHEELS
Polishing paintwork and brightwork
For maximum protection against road
dust, salts, industrial fall-out etc., it is
recommended that the vehicle is polished
regularly using Jaguar Polish and a
Polishing Cloth.
When removing or fitting tires always
advise the tire fitter to treat the alloy
wheels with great care and to only use
equipment with spigot or stud hole
clamping. The equipment must not have
any moving parts which contact the
wheel, and tire levers must not be used.
The alloy road wheels are covered with a
protective anti-corrosion coating. To
prevent corrosion it is essential that this
coating is not damaged.
Note: The vehicle’s brightwork should be
cleaned in the same way as the paintwork:
Chrome polish or other abrasive cleaners
must not be used.
Wash the wheels with soap and water at
two week intervals to avoid an
accumulation of particles which could
become embedded in the wheel surface.
In salty conditions the wheels should be
cleaned weekly.
Paint chips
Scratches and chips should be touched in
before weathering action begins. Inspect
the paintwork immediately after the
vehicle has been washed.
Jaguar acid-free wheel cleaner can be
used to remove heavy soiling, however,
non-approved acid based cleaners
should not be used.
Underhood cleaning
Underhood cleaning using high pressure
hoses or steam cleaners should be done
by a Jaguar Dealer. Indiscriminate use of
cleaning equipment could damage or
contaminate the electronic control
modules and fuse boxes.
The size of the wheel rims is stamped or
cast on all wheels.

Tire Pressures
Wheels and Tires
TIRE INFORMATION
Tire temperatures and pressures increase
when running. Deflating a warm tire to the
recommended pressure will result in
under-inflation which may be dangerous.
Tires of the correct type, manufacture and
dimensions, with correct cold inflation
pressures are an integral part of every
vehicle’s design. Regular maintenance of
tires contributes not only to safety, but to
the designed function of the vehicle.
Road-holding, steering and braking are
especially vulnerable to incorrectly
pressurised, badly fitted or worn tires.
!
•
Tires of the correct size and type, but of
different make have widely varying
characteristics. It is therefore
recommended that only Jaguar approved
tires are fitted to all wheels.
•
•
Pressure checks should only be
carried out when the tires are cold
(the vehicle has been stationary for
three hours or more).
Tire pressure label
(Canada and Mexico only)
A tire recommendation label is fixed to the
inside of the right-hand side door front
pillar giving information specific to the
vehicle’s wheel and tire equipment.
!
•
WARNING:
Under-inflation causes excessive
flexing and uneven wear to the tire.
This can lead to sudden failure.
Over-inflation causes a harsh ride,
uneven tire wear and poor handling.
WARNING:
Always ensure replacement tires
have the correct rating and
specifications (e.g. load index, size,
speed rating) for your vehicle.
Contact your Jaguar Dealer for
more information.
When using tires other than those
recommended by Jaguar, do not
exceed the speed capacity
recommended by the
manufacturer.
Tire glossary
Refer to page 223 for a glossary of terms
and definitions associated with tire
pressures and vehicle weights.

optimum ride and handling
characteristics for all normal operating
conditions. The pressures should be
checked and correctly set each week,

Checking tire pressures
The following procedure should be used
to check and adjust the tire pressures:
A slight natural pressure loss occurs with
time. If this exceeds 14 kPa (2 psi) per
week, the cause should be investigated
and rectified.
1. Remove the valve cover.
Note: It is an offence in certain countries
to drive a vehicle with tires that are not
inflated in accordance with the vehicle’s
proper use.
2. Firmly attach a tire pressure
gauge/inflator to the valve.
3. Read the tire pressure from the
gauge. If required, add air to the tire.
4. If air is added to the tire, remove the
gauge from the valve and reattach it
before checking that the pressure is
correct. Failure to remove and
reattach the gauge from the valve
could cause the gauge to show an
incorrect reading.
5. If too much air is added, remove the
gauge from the valve and allow air out
of the tire by pressing the centre of the
valve. Reconnect the gauge to the
valve, and check that the air pressure
is correct.
6. Refit the valve cover.
211
L
Tire Pressures
Ambient temperature pressure
compensation
If the intended journey will take the vehicle
into an area where the ambient local
temperature is known to be lower than the
journey start point, tire pressure under
inflation could occur.
Note: Ensure that correct tire pressures
are maintained when moving to areas of
differing ambient temperature.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring system
(TPM system) may issue a warning if the
under inflation becomes significant. When
driving through variable climatic
conditions the TPM system warnings may
be intermittent.
In areas of extended high ambient
temperature, vehicle tires can be affected
by a softening of the tire side wall. If the
vehicle is stationary for long periods, the
effect is to slightly deform the tire at the
point where the tire meets the standing
surface. This is known as a flat spot.
JOL4681
A colder ambient local temperature will
reduce pressure within the tire. An effect
is to decrease sidewall height and to
increase tire shoulder wear with the
potential for tire failure. Vehicle dynamics
could also be adversely affected.
In order to minimise this effect, tire
pressures can be adjusted to
compensate before the start of the
journey. Alternatively, tire pressures can
be adjusted when the area of lower
ambient temperature is reached.
JOL4683
This is normal tire behaviour, however,
when the vehicle is subsequently driven
vibration may be experienced from the flat
spot. The condition will steadily improve
with additional mileage.
In this situation the vehicle must be left in
the ambient local temperature for a least
one hour before tire pressure is adjusted.
To compensate for colder ambient
temperatures, tire pressures should be
increased by 2lbf/in2 (0.14 bar / 14 kPa)
for each 10°C (20°F) decrease.
In order to minimise this effect, tire
pressures can be adjusted to
compensate.

WARNING:
Failure to comply with the following
can be dangerous. When a
temporary-use spare wheel is fitted,
switch off dynamic stability control,
drive with caution and replace with the
specified wheel and tire assembly as
soon as possible. Do not fit more than
one temporary-use spare wheel at one
time. Temporary-use spare wheel
maximum speed is 80 km/h (50 mph).
All tires fitted as original equipment
include tread wear indicators (TWI) in their
tread pattern. When the tread has worn to
a remaining depth of 1.6 mm the
indicators appear at the surface as bars
which connect the tread pattern across
the full width of the tire.
It is illegal, in certain countries,
to continue to use tires after the tread has
worn to less than 1.6 mm over three
quarters of the width and the entire
circumference of the tire.
For information about temporary-use
spare wheel, refer to page 168.
It should be noted that the properties of
many tires alter progressively with wear.
In particular the wet grip and aquaplaning
resistance are gradually but substantially
reduced. Extra care and speed restriction
should therefore be exercised on wet
roads as the effective tread depth
diminishes.
219
L
Tires
Incorrect wheel alignment will accelerate
tire wear. Fins on the inner or outer edges
of the tread pattern are caused by
excessive toe-in or toe-out respectively.
As fins may also be caused by high
cornering speeds or road camber, it is
advantageous to have the cause detected
by having the wheel alignment checked.
Damage
Excessive local distortion can cause the
casing of a tire to fracture and may lead to
premature failure. Tires should be
examined especially for cracked walls,
exposed cords, etc. Flints and other
sharp objects must be removed from the
tire tread; if left in they may work through
the cover. Clean off any oil or grease
contamination by using a suitable cleaner.
Do not interchange tires from side to side,
front to rear or vice versa as tire wear
produces characteristic patterns
depending upon their position. If the
position is changed after wear has
occurred, the performance of the tire will
be adversely affected.
Caution: Do not use paraffin
(kerosene), because this has a
detrimental effect on rubber.
Tire use after vehicle storage
After a long period of a vehicle standing,
tires may become locally distorted with a
flat area. This will cause an uneven ride
for a few miles until the tires have warmed
up and the flat rounds off.
Note:
•
•
On certain models the rear wheel and
tire assemblies will be larger than the
front. These larger assemblies must
never be fitted to the front of the
vehicle.
However, to reduce the effects of
flat-spots, the tires of a stored vehicle
may be inflated to pressures not
exceeding 420 kPa (60 psi).
On certain models the tires specified
may be directional type. These tires
must be fitted so that when viewed
from the side of the vehicle, the tire
direction of rotation arrow points in
the vehicle forward direction of travel
when positioned at the top of the tire.
Tire ageing
Tires degrade over time, even when they
are not being used. It is recommended
that tires generally be replaced after six
years of normal service. Heat caused by
hot climates or frequent high loading
conditions can accelerate the ageing
process.
Tire repair
It is recommended that damaged tires are
discarded and new tires fitted. They must
not be repaired in view of the high
performance capability of the vehicle.
You should replace the spare tire when
you replace the other road tires due to the
ageing of the spare tire.

TIRE QUALITY GRADES
!
WARNING:
The traction grade assigned to this tire
is based on straight ahead braking
traction tests and does not include
acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning,
or peak traction characteristics.
United States Department of
Transportation/Uniform Tire Quality
Grades
The following information relates to the
tire grading system developed by the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration which will grade tires by
tread wear, traction and temperature
performance.
Temperature - A, B, C
The temperature grades A (the highest), B
and C represents the tire’s resistance to
the generation of heat and its ability to
dissipate heat when tested under
controlled conditions on a specified
indoor laboratory test wheel.
Tread wear
The tread wear grade is a comparative
rating based on the wear rate of the tire
when tested under controlled conditions
on a specified government test course.
For example, a tire graded 150 would
wear one and a half (1.5) times as well on
the government course as a tire
graded 100.
Sustained high temperature can cause
the material of the tire to degenerate and
reduce tire life, and excessive
temperature can lead to sudden tire
failure.
The grade C corresponds to a level of
performance which all passenger car tires
must meet under the Federal Motor
Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109.
The relative performance of tires depends
upon the actual conditions of their use,
however, and may depart significantly
from the norm due to variations in driving
habits, service practices and differences
in road characteristics and climate.
Grades B and A represent higher levels of
performance on the laboratory test wheel
than the minimum required by law.
Traction
The traction grades, from the highest to
the lowest are AA, A, B and C. The
grades represent the tire’s ability to stop
on wet pavements as measured under
controlled conditions on specified
government test surfaces of asphalt and
concrete. A tire marked C may have poor
traction performance.
! WARNING:
The temperature grade for these tires
is established for a tire that is properly
inflated and not overloaded. Excessive
speed, under-inflation or excessive
loading, either separately or in
combination, can cause heat build-up
and possible tire failure.

TIRE RENEWAL
SNOW CHAINS
When renewing tires, it is preferable to fit
a complete vehicle set. If either front or
rear tires only need to be renewed,
new tires must be fitted, as axle sets,
to replace worn ones.
Snow chains, of the recommended type,
may only be fitted to rear wheels.
Contact your Jaguar Dealer for details
and availability of approved snow chains.
The maximum speed when using snow
chains is 48 km/h (30 mph).
After new tires have been fitted the
wheels need to be dynamically balanced.
Remove the snow chains immediately the
roads are clear of snow.
The radial ply tires specified are designed
to meet the high-speed performance
capability of this vehicle.
Ensure the fitting instructions supplied
with the snow chains are kept in a safe
place, for example, with this literature
pack.
Do not fit tires with a different tread
pattern, size or speed rating.
Caution: Ultra High Performance Tires.
Note: Dynamic stability control MUST be
switched OFF when using snow chains.
This vehicle is equipped with a Ultra
High performance tire and wheel
combination designed to provide
maximum dry pavement performance
with consideration for hydroplaning
resistance. As such, they may be more
susceptible to road hazards and
consequential damage. Ultra High
performance tires may also be
expected to experience increased
tread wear with shorter tread life.
These tires are not recommended for
driving on snow or ice, and should be
replaced with winter tires when
weather conditions dictate.

Cargo Weights
Steps for determining correct load limit
6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer,
load from your trailer will be
transferred to your vehicle. Consult
this handbook to determine how this
reduces the available cargo and
luggage load capacity of your vehicle.
(Subtract the trailer nose load (see
page 230) from the available cargo
and luggage load capacity.)
!
WARNING:
Do not exceed the vehicle capacity
weight (the total weight of driver,
passengers and cargo) given on the
tire information label (see page 210).
1. Locate the statement ‘The combined
weight of occupants and cargo
should never exceed XXXX kg or
XXXX lb’ on your vehicle’s placard
(see page 210).
The number and weight of passengers will
affect the cargo and luggage load
capacity. In the example above, the cargo
and luggage load capacity is 650 lb.
However, if fewer passengers ride in the
vehicle, the luggage load capacity will
increase. If this vehicle carries three
150 lb passengers, the cargo and luggage
load capacity will increase to 950 lb:
(3 x 150 = 450 lb, and
1400 - 450 = 950 lb).
2. Determine the combined weight of the
driver and passengers that will be
riding in your vehicle.
3. Subtract the combined weight of the
driver and passengers from XXXX kg
or XXXX lb (weight given on placard).
4. The resulting figure equals the
available amount of cargo and
luggage load capacity. For example, if
the XXXX amount equals 1400 lb, and
there will be five 150 lb passengers in
your vehicle, the amount of available
cargo and luggage load capacity is
650 lb:
(5 x 150 = 750, and
1400 - 750 = 650 lb).
If the passengers weigh more, the cargo
and luggage load capacity will decrease.
!
•
5. Determine the combined weight of
luggage and cargo being loaded on
the vehicle. That weight may not
safely exceed the available cargo and
luggage load capacity calculated in
Step 4.
•
226
WARNING:
The weight of accessories must
also be subtracted from the
available cargo and luggage load
capacity. If you are unsure of the
weight of any accessories fitted to
your vehicle, contact your Jaguar
Dealer.
Overloading the vehicle will have an
adverse affect on braking and
handling characteristics, which
could compromise your safety.
Overloading a vehicle may also
cause tire damage or failure.
Never overload your vehicle.
