Research on Brakes for Jaguar XJ8
Driving in luxury should not be compromised by your Jaguar XJ8 having trouble stopping. As a full-sized sedan it takes more power to stop this larger car than it would to stop a small, compact car, which makes the brakes even more important.
Brake Types on a Jaguar XJ8
Like most luxury cars, the Jaguar XJ8 features both front and rear disc brakes. These brakes use pads to close around the disc, which is attached to the wheel. The friction from contact between the pad and disc, which is sometimes called a rotor, causes the wheel to stop. This happens very quickly and on all four wheels at once in a carefully orchestrated ballet that you only see as a fraction of a second to stop. Jaguars also have parking brake shoes behind the rear brake rotors. These are used only in emergencies when driving but typically used very frequently when parking to keep the car from rolling. The pads and rotors are the brakes that you will find the need to replace more often because they experience higher levels of wear.
XJ8 Brake Recall
There were very few Jaguar XJ8 problems reported, but among those was a recall for part of the braking system. Only on 2004 Jaguar XJ8 cars was there a recall for any component of the braking system. On the 2004 models, a particular pad was installed on the vehicle to make the car quieter and smoother to drive. The problem was that this pad would rub against the steel brake line for the rear brakes, eventually causing wear and brake fluid leaks. Leaking brake lines have the potential to reduce the braking power of a car. Since it is under recall, a Jaguar dealer will remove the quieting pad and install a new brake line if the original was damaged and leaking.
Cost for New Jaguar XJ8 Brakes and Rotors
Your price for new brake pads and rotors will depend on the types of both you get and who installs them. The labor costs if you install them yourself will be $0, but if you send your Jaguar to the dealer's service center, you will be charged an hourly rate on top of the cost for parts. This is also true if you take your car to a mechanic. Depending on the labor rates, you could expect to pay anywhere from $1599.25 to $1963.92 for a pair of new rotors and pads for your 2004 Jaguar XJ8 brakes. The pads and rotors required for installation on a luxury car such as the XJ8 are costlier than those that may be used for a lighter car that requires less powerful braking.
