Sadly you are correct. To access this tiny component requires complete disassembly of the instrument panel. There are several Jaguar car clubs who can help you with the procedure, eg the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club (http://www.jec.org.uk/)

Thanks for using FixYa. In Jaguar XKR the parking brake is controlled electronically unlike the cable ones. The voltage applied to the electronic Park Brake module is applied at the same time you start the engine, consequently on a very cold day the battery will be far less efficient and due to the extra power required to start a very cold 6 cylinder engine the voltage will fall.

Although this reduced voltage will quite happily start the car it will trip out the Parking brake. To help avoid this problem happening again switch the ignition to position 2(position just prior to starting) and press the chrome handbrake tab down while having your foot on the brake. The brakes will be released, the park brake light on the dash will go out and you can now start the car.

On the new XKR module the electronic handbrake is not activated by the gear shift as in the later S models so you can start the car and then release the brake when the engine is running.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

There are two cables in housings that come from the rear wheels and are exposed to water from the road which results in rusted cables and interiors of the housings. Replace both parts on each side. Make sure that you get new rubber boots for the open ends of the cables.
