Cayman specialise in solving Jaguar XK8 soft top convertible roof repairs
If you are suffering from a wet cabin or boot area in your Jaguar XK8 Convertible, contact us and we can talk you through the steps that lead to water reduction in your cherished cabriolet.
In May 1998, The Jaguar XK8 convertible was introduced to the range, a beautiful machine with an electrically-powered fabric folding roof. The folding soft top was developed by Karmann, complete with heated glass screen, and a clip-on leather hood cover to look tidy when the convertible roof is lowered.
Keeping your Jaguar XK8 roof system in top working order is essential and we recommend an annual roof service to keep the convertible roof system well lubricated and free of squeaks.
Like all soft top cabriolets they have their faults and in particular, lack of attention to care and maintenance can lead to water ingress and the usual electrical and mechanical faults caused by water damage on the operational roof system.
