Jaguar XJ8 Air conditioning compressor relay replacement
Do Jaguar XJ8 air conditioning compressor relays need to be replaced?
It comes down to comfort.
If you are in the habit of driving in your Jaguar XJ8’s air-conditioned comfort then this is a no brainer, you probably won’t survive the drive if the AC isn’t working.
When you switch the air conditioner on in your Jaguar XJ8 you can usually hear a click, that is the compressor clutch operating.
If you don’t hear a click and have no A/C this is a good sign the relay needs replacing.
Avoid turning your Jaguar XJ8's A/C on and off continually. Electrical components generally don’t like being switched on and off repeatedly, as this can cause them to overheat and fail.
It is a fairly simple task to replace an air conditioning compressor relay but without the correct tools and knowledge, it will be easier to get the experts to do it.
When it comes to electrical work, you don’t want to get a jolt from the battery.
A technician will locate the relay box, usually found under the Jaguar XJ8's bonnet.
The old relay will be removed and the new relay installed and the system operation will be checked and cleared of faults.
