Hey, visiting from the BMW board, I was changing the tires on my Mom's '04 XJ8, when I realized that the steering wheel dosent lock when the key is removed. In other words, when you jack up the car, the front wheels turn toward the side you are jacking up, causing the car to shift away from the jack. Luckly, the jack rolled with the car insead of the car rolling off the car, it wasnt a big shift, about 1", but it scared me for a minute regardless. Do these cars just not have a steering wheel lock, or is there something wrong with my Mom's car, cause i have never seen a car without a steering wheel lock.
