What did you do to/with your Commander today?

I did quite a bit of searching and couldn't find a thread like this, which was surprising.

But anyway, this is to share the quick updates about the little things you did to your XK on any given day. If you don't want to start a new thread... Let us know here!

Nothing too cool and I haven't done it yet but yesterday I just received my replacement blower motor control module which I plan on installing this Saturday. I had to order the entire kit which came with a replacement wire harness. Should be fun to figure out the correct wiring since it didn't really come with instructions. I've also read in other threads that the cables to the blower motor are often reversed causing the fan to blow in the opposite direction so I'll have to keep that in mind.

last weekend I installed new head lights and replaced the water pump, I rented the tools to remove the fan clutch but were no use, my cousin came over and used a wrench to loosen the nut and remove the fan.

My blower motor occasionally makes the rattle, but not always. Still performs normally. I'm trying to just ignore it until it fails! Haha

I dried out the front seats and carpet with a blow dryer Monday! I left the sunroof open Sunday night while we had the slightest drizzle, more like mist, all night. No accumulation on the floor, but wet interior. I was worried about electrical issues, but none yet...fingers are crossed I have all three cars due for oil change and two due for inspection this month.

Great idea for a thread.


This wasn't "today" but recently used my Fumoto oil drain valve for the first time since install to change my oil. Worked GREAT! No mess. Running Pennzoil Platinum 5w20 and mobil one extra capacity filter. I spent $25 AMIR for 5 qts plus filter @ Autozone as they were running an oil change special, and Pennzoil has a $10 MIR. More than doubled my OCI, as it still looked clean after 3000 miles. I should probably send the next batch in for an oil analysis, so I ordered a free test kit. WAY cheaper than paying a greasemonkey to do it for me, and I shouldn't have to change near as often. Happy with that.

Free oil test kit

Waiting for my 7w cree bulbs to come in so I can swap the brake lights and backup lights. CHEAP on ebay from china, but shipping time is 21 days+, wish me luck.


Broke 100k miles, its time to get serious about changing the rest of my fluids: trans (scared of the NAG1 it is quite sensitive to fluid level), diff, brake fluid, etc.

I think this is a great idea for a thread.
Didn't do anything directly to my XK, but did a ton of research on how to replace the Rack and Pinion for my power steering.. which only lead me to dread the weekend that I have to do it But $300 for the part is way better than the 1k a shop wants to do it!

Finished subwoofer install. Sounds great. Used a line level converter off the door front speakers right at the BA amp located on the driver's rear section.

Removed the third row seating which I'll never use and was just taking up cargo room.

Added in the Sundown Audio SA-10 subwoofer in a small, sealed box. Wired to 1 ohm.

Powered by a Rockford Fosgate Punch P1000X1bd, which can push 1000w RMS at 1 ohm.

A little reserve power from a Precision Power 3 farad capacitor.

Ran the "Punch Level Control" to the front between the console and the passenger seat, allowing me to dial in bass level. Not permanently mounted yet.
