I had a 2003 S-Type R with the same problem. Dealer never could
resolve it. They told me it was because of the humidity in the air.
Duh!! I finally resolved it by trading it in on a 2005 XJR. Best
It probably means that you didn't use it over the winter and mould grew. It
does. Any decent aircon specialist (and I exclude jaguar dealers) will be
able to spray a biocide into the aircon intake while it's running (if you do
it yourself - doors & windows open and nobody in the car - it's horrid
stuff. Takes a few days for the smell of that to go, then problem gone.
Use your aircon in the winter!
