Our service is personal, not automated, so if you are not sure which numbers to give, provide us with all you see on the outside of the casing and we will check them for you.
Codes for JAGUAR factory-fitted radios require upto 24 hours to supply as they cannot be 'calculated' and must be obtained from a reliable trade partner. It also means that the cost is a little higher than our standard price, at £14.95.
We personally acknowledge your request (NOT an auto-responder) and usually succeed in responding by email with your code within 12 hours.
After submitting the form, you will be forwarded to our payments page. Note that your request will not be actioned until payment is received. Our service is inexpensive but it is not free. We aim to give a good service to paying customers, with the assurance of our money-back guarantee: If we are not able to supply the factory-set code for your unit, we will explain why and offer some options on how to proceed, and we promise to refund you less 95p to cover our payment processing fee.
I thank you a lot for your answer. I appreciate your "human" reply by far better than the automatic and no obm for the delay. (Younes Derbouguy - Jaguar X Type with Alpine CD/Radio)
While the radio in some models of Jaguar can be extracted using the standard form of two prong 'key' inserted into twin holes either side of the radio faceplate, others require that you first remove trim panels to reveal fixing screws - clearly the latter is more time consuming and more prone to accidental damage to trim panels or upholstery. If you have any doubts about your ability to remove the radio from the dashboard cleanly, without scuffing the surrounding trim or worse, we strongly advise you to visit a specialist radio installer or contact one of the many good mobile specialists. This advice is true for any vehicle, but damage to higher value cars can be prohibitively expensive to put right.
This independent website provides useful guidance on how to remove car radios and sat-nav units from vehicles.
Several of the Visteon units fitted to Jaguar use a standard twin pronged key (as shown here) to extract the unit - if this is the case with yours, you will see the two small holes each side of the faciaplate. Don't be tempted to try removing the radio another way or force it as you may damage the surrounding dashboard trim. The keys make it very easy - you can find them in motoring stores or online.
Labels applied to the case of the radio may overlap the back and top, or top and side panels. Look to see if such a label is torn along the line where the panels meet and let us know if you see this. It might indicate the radio has been previously repaired and the code reset.
