After Hyundai, and without there being any relationship between these two recalls, it is Jaguar’s turn to announce a problem with the restraint system of four of its models. These are the pretensioners which could, in the event of an accident, not fulfill their role correctly. Indeed, during quality checks, the brand detected that some of its elements, which did not comply with the initial specifications, could have been damaged during the assembly of these vehicles.
Are affected by this operation, the XE, F-Pace, F-Type and XF released from the chain between January 19 and March 15 of this year. In France, this probably represents several hundred copies to be checked and on which the offending pretensioners will have to be replaced. Jaguar France is therefore currently contacting the owners of vehicles approved under the following CE types (appearing in box K of the gray card): e5*2007/46*1049*** for the XE, e5*2007/46*1047** * for F-Pace, e5*2001/116*1000*** for F-Type and e5*2007/46*1048*** for XF.
If one of the vehicles is sleeping in your garage, you have received or will receive a letter referring to the recall referenced internally under the code H412. A missive not to be taken lightly, since the safety of the occupants of the vehicle is at stake.
