Design flaw with clock assembly on Jaguar X300 - Colin Etwell
There is a design flaw with the clock assembly on the Jaguar X300. The LEDs that illuminate the display repeatedly heat the ribbon cable connecting the LCD to the main circuit board, eventually resulting in the cable melting and the display ceasing to function.

Needless to say, the main dealers want to charge £157+VAT for the whole module, whereas all that is needed is the replacement ribbon cable (20p?).

Does anybody know who makes the clock assembly (Jaguar won't say!), or where a used replacement can be found, or indeed where a cable can be obtained?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You'll probably get the answer from Phil Weedon at the excellent Jaguar Monthly magazine (independent, not manufacturer). The publisher's website is www.kelsey.co.uk . You can e-mail Phil at jm.ed@kelsey.co.uk
