Customer Question
Hi my name is...

Hi my name is ***** ***** own a 2010 XK convertible. Can you please provide an estimate of parts and labour to replace a faulty water pump and also replace a faulty alternator. Thanx

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?

No warning light came on saying coolant low I was only a minute away from home. Car has 60k and was serviced at ULR jag 6 months ago

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Convertible yourself? What have you tried so far?

No the car is at an independent repairer in south melbourne (out of warranty) I have just received what I think is a ridiculously high quote!!!!

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No I just would like an estimate to compare with what I have been quoted

Hello and welcome to Just Answer

a new pump and associated gaskets , new coolant and a fresh belt is about £120 in parts

and an AC delco alternator is £160

so £280 in parts - possibly more if you buy them from a jag dealer

fitting for both will around 3.5 -4 hours of labour and you don't need a jaguar specialist to do the job, any independent can carry it out so you don't have to pay the £100 / hour labour rate on a JLR dealer

Hi
do you still need help?
Bear in mind that the site takes a deposit from you at the beginning and this is held by the site until you rate my answer at which point the cash is split between the site and the expert. I am only paid for my work on this question if you rate my answer, using the star system at the top of the screen. Please do not forget! If you're not pleased, also let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent further replies
Thanks Matt
