Jaguar Land Rover has issued a trio of recalls this week - two concerning its Jaguar XF range and the other targeting the XJ model.

The first recall concerns XF and XJ models fitted with Jaguar’s 2.0 litre GTDi turbo-diesel engine, specifically concerning a bolt securing the drive belt idler pulley.

The bolt may not be to specification, and may fail while driving.

Should this occur, the accessory drive belt will no longer run the vehicle’s air conditioning, alternator, or coolant pump.

Driver’s will notice a warning light in the instrument cluster, which could be followed by a reduction in the car’s steering assistance.

Changes to the steering behaviour of the vehicle could pose a hazard to the vehicle’s occupant and other road users.

The recall process will see the vehicle’s idler pulley and bolt changed to the latest specification.

A total of 816 XF examples are affected in Australia from the 2013-2015 model-years, and while the recall also includes the XJ, no XJ examples are targeted in Australia.

JLR is also recalling Jaguar XF models (pictured, top of page) from the 2016 and 2017 model years, fitted with TDV6 3.0 litre turbo-diesel engines.

A total of 28 vehicles are included in the second recall, which concerns a potential fuel leak under the bonnet.

The vehicle’s fuel lines may be misrouted, and a metal fuel clip may be allowed to rub against the line while driving.

Over time, the fuel line may develop a leak, allowing diesel to contact hot engine parts resulting in a potential fire hazard.

The recall process will include an inspection of the offending fuel lines, with fitment of replacement parts and rerouting carried out if necessary.

Jaguar will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
