2004 Jaguar X-Type 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 26000 miles
When car was under warranty (20000 miles), loud sceeching noise was detected in cold weather. Noise disappears after 2 or 3 blocks. Told by dealer rusty rotor- no action. This winter (26000 Miles) car not under warranty, exact same issue; was told bearing in drive shaft shot, cost $950. When I informed them the exact problem reported under warranty I was told the two issues were unrelated. The area service rep came back with this answer. I portested that in no way you will have the very same issue under similar conditions with two totaly different answer. When they examined the car the second time they did not hear the noise because the temps were in the 60's yet they came with the $$$ answer.
have the same problem?
