Jaguar S-Type. Service manual - part 7




General Information





Never place non-approve floor matting 
or any other obstructions under the 
brake pedal. This restricts pedal travel 
and braking efficiency.

Make sure that the driver’s floor mat is 
correctly positioned and secured under 
the tongues on the retention posts (A
only one post shown), so that the mat 
does not interfere with the operation of 
the accelerator or brake pedals.

In particular, check the position of the mat 
when refitting after cleaning or servicing.


We must all play our part in protecting the 
environment. Correct vehicle usage and 
disposal of waste cleaning and lubrication 
materials are significant steps towards 
this aim.

Avoid using high engine speeds. You will 
then protect your engine, reduce fuel 
consumption, lower the engine noise level 
and help towards reducing the 
environmental burden.

Dispose of batteries, tires, engine, brake 
and coolant fluids at your local authorised 
waste disposal facilities.


Caution: Do not have your vehicle 
windows tinted with a metal oxide 
tinting (for maximum heat reduction 
from sun load) if you have telephone or 
a navigation system fitted to your 

Metal oxide tinting prevents the reception 
of the Global Positioning System (GPS) 
signals by the antenna, causing the 
navigation system to stop functioning.

A non-metal tinting should be used if you 
require window tinting and if in doubt, 
contact your Jaguar Dealer for advice.


Leather is a natural product, therefore, it 
bears natural characteristics, such as 
grain variations, growth and brush marks. 
These non-weakening marks show the 
true nature of the hide and are the 
hallmarks of a leather product. Leather is 
an easy to maintain natural product, 
however, dust and substances can 
penetrate the pores and crease the 
leather, causing surface wear and 

To prevent ingrained dirt and staining, 
inspect the seat upholstery regularly and 
clean every one to two months as follows:
• Wipe off fine dust from the seat 

surfaces at regular intervals using a 
clean, damp, non-coloured cloth. 
Change frequently to a clean area of 
cloth to avoid abrasive action on the 
leather surface. Avoid over-wetting.

General Information



• If this is not sufficient, use a cloth 

which has been dampened with warm 
soapy water and then been wrung 
out. Never allow the leather to be 
soaked through. Use only mild 
non-caustic soap.

• Use Jaguar Leather Cleaner for 

heavily soiled areas. Dry off and rub 
with a clean soft cloth, changing 
surfaces regularly.

When staining (e.g.: from clothing) or 
spillage occurs, clean the affected area 
immediately as described above.

It is recommended that Jaguar Leather 
Cleaner is used several times a year to 
maintain its appearance and suppleness. 
The Jaguar Leather Cleaner will nourish 
and moisturise the leather and help to 
improve and renew the surface protective 
film against dust and substances.
• Do not use solvents such as gasoline, 

white spirit or alcohol. Do not use 
detergents, furniture polish or 
household cleaners. Such strong 
treatments may give, initially, an 
impressive appearance, but their use 
will lead to rapid damage or 
deterioration of the natural properties 
of the leather. Jaguar recommend a 
basic set of products that have been 
specially selected for the type of 
leather in your vehicle. The 
Manufacturer’s Warranty will be 
invalidated if treatments are used 
other than those recommended by 
Jaguar Cars Limited.

• Dark clothing may stain leather seats 

just like other upholstery products.

• Sharp objects such as belts, zip 

fasteners, rivets, etc. can leave 
permanent scratches and scratch 
marks on the leather surface.

• Unless spillages such as tea, coffee or 

ink are washed away immediately; 
permanent staining may have to be 

If a valet service is used, make sure that 
the specialist concerned is aware of, and 
follows these instructions precisely.

For any further questions please consult 
your Jaguar Dealer for specialist advice.


Service Data Recording

Service data recorders in your vehicle are 
capable of collecting and storing 
diagnostic information about your vehicle. 
This potentially includes information 
about the performance or status of 
various systems and modules in the 
vehicle, such as engine, throttle, steering 
or brake systems.

In order to properly diagnose and service 
your vehicle, Jaguar Cars Limited and 
service and repair facilities may access 
vehicle diagnostic information through a 
direct connection to your vehicle when 
diagnosing or servicing your vehicle.


General Information


Event Data Recording

Other modules in your vehicle - event data 
recorders - are capable of collecting and 
storing data during a crash or near-crash 
event. The recorded information may 
assist in the investigation of such an 
event. The modules may record 
information about both the vehicle and 
the occupants, potentially including 
information such as:
• How various systems in your vehicle 

were operating.

• Whether or not the driver and 

passenger seat belts were buckled.

• How far, if at all, the driver was 

depressing the accelerator and or the 
brake pedal.

• How fast the vehicle was travelling.
• Where the driver was positioning the 

steering wheel.

To access this information, special 
equipment must be directly connected to 
the recording modules. Jaguar Cars 
Limited do not access event data 
recorder information without obtaining 
consent, unless pursuant to court order or 
where required by law enforcement, other 
government authorities or third parties 
acting with lawful authority.

Other parties may seek to access the 
information independently of Jaguar Cars
