I am out of the Country right now with my car, a 2002 Jaguar x type. My Brother in Law has gone under the car and, trying to locate the transmission plug, has taken off one bolt if you are sitting in the drivers set the bolt would be under you, when he took this bolt out he says he heard that something "fell off" inside. He put the bolt back, however; now the vehicle will not reverse. It is automatic and will go into reverse but nothing happens when you press on the gas. It works fine in drive. I have contacted a few Jaguar dealerships and they all tell me there is nothing he could have done to it to cause this. So, what do we do to fix this?? Any ideas? Take a look at the photo attached, you can see the bolt that was removed and then put back, upper left with white arrow. Thanks,
he pulled whats known as the reverse pin, in oreder to fix this problem you need to take the transmission out and get the gear (the sound like something dropped) back into position on the bolt that he pulled out
hey i did the same thing how did u fix it????
did this fix your problem? im having the same problem
well u have to take down the tranny!!!
So where in the heck IS the transmission drain plug and fill? I know these are factory sealed and there is no trnasmission dipstick in the engine compartment. However, from what I have read so far, there are plugs for the drain and fill accessable under the chasis. For anyone else, if you are getting a "Gearbox Fault" dash light... you are likely losing tranny fluid and the light is intermitent. We took ours to the local dealer here in Newport Beach CA and they were totally worthless... said nothing was wrong and only needed reset on the computer. They lied. I now have a trans leak and the car is missing as I drive it... reving before engaging. Now I don't drive it until I can have it fixed. Where the heck is that dammed plug?!
Check this out for those of you looking for proper changing of transmission fluid.. almost scientific, and look where the fill plug is hidden, damned near under the battery box. Also- be very careful about what fluids you use- must compatible- see following links. http://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/x-type-14/transmission-drain-fill-procedure-faq-43649/?ref=esp-img http://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/x-type-14/cheap-approved-x-type-atf-found-5444/?ref=ccm-ext-0 http://jagmotorproject.blogspot.com/2006/01/motor-project-8-vital-fluids.html
Tell your brother to leave your car alone til you get back,it sounds like he accidentally took the linkage arm loose and knocked allready fatigued plastic bushing into the aluminum casing.shift linkage is out of whack.
Anybody know why my jag hasitates untill it reaches the right tempeture? After that it's fine but when it's cold even the brakes don't want to work.
I have a 2002 X-Type and for some reason now i cant put it in drive and it goes to 20mph and the rpm just rubs, the reverse works fine but i cant drive it. pls help
Just because you broke it, doesn't mean you have to fix it yourself. Take it to a jag mechanic and let them fix it so you don't cause yourself more problems. Jags are notorious for needing constant repair.
Let the dealership repair it. There are some you can do and some things for safety purposes you should let the dealership fix. Jaguars are a finicky bunch and if you don't know exactly what you're doing it could end of costing alot more to fix. Hope that helps =)
I have actually found a solution for this without removing the transmission. You will need snap ring pliers, air compressor with air chuck fitting,baling wire and a friend. First step-remove the cover snap ring (cover and plug are in center of picture). Second step-remove the plug next to the servo. Third step-blow air through the plug and that will dislodge the cover. Fourth step-remove the second snap ring, the servo and spring. Fifth step-feed the baling wire through the servo housing area until it is visible from the bolt that was accidentally removed. Sixth step-form a small hook on the baling wire tip and have assistant pull reverse band back into place and reinsert the bolt which holds the reverse band. Reinstall servo, spring and cover. Finally, live happily ever after.
drain plug is located on driver side under tranny remove the bracket for the trans cables plug is there
here`s my solution to the no reverse problem,if your able to get the use of a ramp your problem will be gone in one hour,remove n/s/f wheel and the plug you thought was the level / filler now this might sound a bit unethical but it works ,i`ve just fixed my own x type auto,after making the same mistake,,drill a small hole in the casing just above the plug hole avoid putting any swarf getting inside ,use a small electrical screwdriver through the plug hole and work the bit inside the box upward until you see the gap that the plug locates into,it has only dropped down about an inch or so when you have it where you want it then use a piece of welding rod through the hole you have drilled to hold the locator in place then fit the locator plug back in to the casing having done as instructed you have rectified your no reverse problem,,you only need to plug the small hole in the casing whichever way you want, job done...no need to remove transmission or dismantle servo or anything, happy days
what is the approximately cost to fix the ggearbox fault? the car reverse well, when goes forward it seems to be taking off on the second or third gear. What will cost me to get this fixed?
