Great vid XJ. Can we have a lower control arm bushing next?!

Kenneth says:

XJ Jesse was extremely thorough in his procedures. Most don't realize you need to loosen the brake master cylinder cap BEFORE you push the caliper piston back into their bores. That is a very critical step as well as cleaning the wheel speed sensor as preventative maintenance. Jaguar's are very electronically sensitive automobiles so keeping an eye on items such as these can save you a ton of headaches in the future. Great video.
