Changing Bank 1 Spark Plugs
Remove Electrical Connections.

Start by removing the three rear electrical connections, as with most connectors on the Jaguar X-Type you will need to press down one side of the connector and pull it apart.

Remove the two connections one each side of the throttle assembly.

If you are not changing the Bank 2 spark plugs, remove the rubber flexible hose between the air filter and throttle assembly. If the original Jaguar clips are still fitted, these can be removed by sliding the small flat screwdriver in under the clip then press forward and twist. If the front bank (Bank 2) are also being changed then only the clip adjacent to the throttle assembly needs to be removed.

As the flexible pipe is removed, disconnect the plastic camshaft cover vent pipe connected to it near the throttle assembly.
