Also, do you know how or where I can obtain a manual for the 2000 XKR?


The best service and repair manuals are actually online manuals- either AllData or Mitchell on Demand. They run $19.95 per year for a subscription.

I have checked the normal repair manual publications-Haynes, Chilton and Bentleys and cannot find one.

Your other option is thru Jaguar dealership
