Welcome Back

We recently welcomed our 2001 Jaguar XKR back into the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.

While it was here, Brian made some repairs to the carpet and the roof system was looked at. To do this, several components had to be removed from the car.

When Brian was done, Jonn hoovered out the car before refitting the seats. He then reconnected and tested the seat operation. The roof system was topped up with hydraulic fluid before Jonn ran the roof through the full sequence again.

After wiping over the car, Jonn noticed that the airbag light was flashing. When Jonn tried to clear the code, he was unsuccessful. The code was B2291 – passenger seat occupancy sensor. The connections under the seat were checked but the code would still not clear.

As a result, more investigative work will be required.

Inspecting Our Competition Jaguar

Our 2001 Jaguar XKR has been in the hands of classic car technician Jonn as he has begun inspecting the vehicle ready for it to eventually go live on Bridge Classic Cars Competitions very soon.

During his investigation, Jonn tested the air con which he found to be working fine. He also found that there was a broken wire inside the loom which meant the boot release button was not working as it should. After Jonn had repaired this, everything was back working again.

The bezels that go around the centre gauges were reattached before Jonn turned his attention to the front seats. The driver’s seat module was found loose under the seat so needed to be reattached to the seat frame.

This was slightly better than the passenger side module which was missing completely. Jonn also needed to untwist the nearside front seatbelt at the reel behind the panel.

Just Arrived

Today, we saw the arrival of our 2001 Jaguar XKR which will soon be available to win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

As it has just arrived with us, it will now go through an inspection and assessment with our team of classic car technicians but, from first impressions, things are looking good already!
