X300 Transmission Fluid Change
A change of transmission fluid was high on my list of priorities, and Brucie decided to hurry me along with this by making regular deposits of oil on the garage floor, which was obviously from the vicinity of the gearbox. I purchased the appropriate parts (O-ring, filter and sump gasket) from SNG Barratt, however, I didn’t specify genuine Jaguar parts as I have had no complaints about the quality of non-genuine items purchased from them in the past, and there is a marked difference in the price of genuine and non-genuine parts! The transmission fluid change was performed by a local non-Jaguar garage who I have used before and have great faith in.
