Youll need to remove the radiator cowl and the fan and viscous coupling; they all come off in order. Then you need to drain the coolant and take off the hoses going to the thermostat housing which sits on top of the water pump. Theres one bolt in particular right underneath the thermostat housing that almost impossible to access, takes forever. You'll find the bonnet gets in your way too as its forward tilting. Take it off if you can stand the pain. With the thermostat housing removed you can see the water pump; if youre lucky it will come apart easily but more likely youll struggle to get the pulley off and theres hardly any clearance to get at the retaining centre nut. Ignore the book and pull the whole assembly out in one go if you can, dont try to get the pulley off the pump, its a nightmare. Replace the thermostat while your in the pain zone anyway. Reassembly is a straight reversal. The whole thing is a pain and I'd pay not to do it again.

If you have to ask, have some one else replace the hose. You don't appear to have enough knowledge to do the job yourself.

the only thing that I have found to be successful was to just move the belt around the fan.

The fuse for the window controls on a 1986 Jaguar XJ6 is in the passenger compartment fuse box. It is in the second row down and the fourth fuse from the right in the fuse panel.

To remove the factory radio from a 1986 Jaguar XJS, remove all climate control knobs from the dashboard and remove the rings that surround the climate control knobs. Pull away the plastic that surrounds the stereo head unit and unscrew the four screws on either side of the stereo head.
