Jaguar XKR Reconditioned Supercharger – Exchange replacement Supercharger Jaguar XKR
The Eaton supercharger used on most of the Jaguar XKR range is super reliable, its not uncommon for them to see over 100,000 trouble free miles. But failure can occur from anything over 50,000 miles, in fact its not especially rare to see failures at this type of mileage. If you hear noises from your Jaguar XKR supercharger please seek urgent advice, if you keep running a charger that is suffering early signs of failure catastrophic engine damage can occur if you keep driving and driving it.
One of the first signs of Jaguar XKR Supercharger failure is a shudder with a heavy rattle or clonk when turning the engine off. A whine may also be apparent when the engine running, or a vibration that looks a little like a misfire, often there can be a combination of these symptoms. To isolate your charger as being the fault remove the drive belt from your Jaguar Supercharger and check for free play on the upper pulley – a sloppy side to side motion with a clonk at each end of the free play is a sure sign your charger has reached its “end of days”
