My SNG replacement system has the vacuum the vacuum port on the same side like the original one.
So I think it will fit and have the correct functionality.

Re: Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid

Dear forum colleagues, I totally agree. If the transmission has no problems I would just perform the normal oil change and also change the filter. When you remove the oil pan you can see if there is some debris. If everything is normal just clean it anf fill up new oil. Changing several times is muc...

Re: Still many issues to solve on my series 3

Hi, If you have now isolated the kickdown switch cable properly (or reconnected it) there should be no problem. I think a fuse should burn before a relay. Perhaps I was inaccurate before. The switching voltage for the relays and the kickdown has a fuse in the dashboard. The current for fans and horn...

Re: Still many issues to solve on my series 3

Hello Jerome, because the fans and horn are connected with the same fuse I would firstly disconnect one cirquit. For example the fans (just remove the + cable from the relay) If the horns work and the fuse doesn't burn then it must be a problem with the fan wiring. If you don't want to waste the gla...

Re: Still many issues to solve on my series 3

Hi,

on my S3 the fan and horn fuse is not in the dashbord.
It is a single 50A fuse in the engine wire harness, right side of the engine above the battery.

Did you check this fuse?

Hello John, That's my idea. For me it' s no problem to bring the car to UK. I have already visited UK during a Major Ivan Hirst (who rescued Volkswagen) memorial tour. We took the ferry from Rotterdam. Also Calais Dover is no problem, a trailer is available. I think it' a better idea to look for som...

Re: S3 body

Hello Julien, Thank you for your reply. In Germany it is difficult to find a workshop. In my area exerienced specialists retire and have no sucessor. I have one where they have done my VW T3. But they have no jigs for Jaguar and are not specialized in british cars. I think about bringing the body to...

Dear forum colleagues, This year I will try to get my 1971 S3 running. Mechanical things I will repair by myself. But it needs a lot of body repair work and I think it will be difficult to do it by myself. :hammerdrill: I have not welded something for nearly 30 years and have no experience with E ty...

sealed beam

Dear forum friends, replacing a front park light bulb I found that my car is equipped with sealed beam headlights (one has the number 2 on top of the glass, the other one not). It is an original german LHD, not a re imported car. I thought sealed beam was not legal in Germany. :seeingstars: Perhaps ...

Re: FUEL PUMP XKE 1971

If you want a cheap solution then why donˋt you repair your pump.
New points and diaphragm and thats it.

Re: FUEL PUMP XKE 1971

Hi,

I bought an electronic SU (like original) one from Burlen.
Price seems reasonable to me.
Also the "mechanical" one is available there.

Best regards

Re: S3 Auto: Dedicated transmission cooler

Hello Philip, it is important that the lower part of your AC condenser is not "blocked" by another cooler. If you put the transmission oil cooler in front of the lower area of your AC condenser you will reduce the cooling performance of your air condition. If the cooling air first passes the transmi...

Re: S3 Auto: Dedicated transmission cooler

Hi Philip, nice solution like it is very common in today's vehicles. From my experience you should place it higher because the subcooling area of your AC condensor is in the lower part. So if you put a transmission cooler in front of the AC condensor you might experience lower cooling performance. Y...

I want to use the manual mirror without cables.

I will buy a spare part from SNG (I can't find an original one at the moment) My door has no holes in the area where it should be mounted (the pre owner has mounted a round german mirror at the front end of the door using a woo...
