If you have a Jaguar X-Type and the rear middle seat belt is not retracting or releasing try these steps below:

Release the rear seat using the catch to fold it down. (Only do this with the seat that has the middle seat belt actually built in to it.) Now slam the seat back really hard. Now try the seat belt it should fully work. If it doest not then remove the parcel shelf and check behind the seat for anything that could be trapping the seat from going completly back and retry this once again. If it solves it then install the parcel shelf back in the car.

This should solve the issue and now the middle passenger can use the seat belt again.

Jaguar X-Type Fuel Filter Changed Now Engine Wont Start [SOLVED]

I changed the fuel filter on a Jaguar X-Type 2005 model and now the engine wont start.  You can hear the engine trying to start but it doesnt quite make it.

Well basically the best way I found to solve this was to take the new fuel filter off and use a funnel and poor diesel directly into it filling it up and tilting it slightly to allow the air to come out of it fully and get as much diesel in as possible.
Re attach the fuel filter exactly how it was taken of to the correct hoses/pipes making sure the arrows line up and the fuel filter is the right way around as you can rotate it 180 degrees and it would then make the arrows point the wrong direction.
Refit and then turn the ignition on until the coil goes out on the dash light and repeat this for about five times.  Now start the engine it may hesitate very slightly and then just leave it to run and it will fully work as normal.

This is exactly what i did and it worked based on what I read online and in the Haynes manuals.  Hopefully this will save you a lot more time than I wasted on this task.
