2004 Jaguar XJR RecallsJaguar Recalls 2004 XJ Models for Possible Accelerated Brake Line Corrosion
Jaguar is recalling 2004 model year XJ vehicles to prevent and correct possible accelerated corrosion of the rear steel brake lines. The existence of a special pad installed to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness under the vehicle in a location where it contacts with the steel brake lines creates an environment where moisture and dirt can collect and promote accelerated corrosion. Corroded brake lines can develop leaks, causing brake system pressure failure and poor braking function. Dealers will remove the special pad and inspect the brake lines for the existence of corrosion. Affected lines will be replaced.
On certain vehicles with automatic transmissions, with a forward "Drive" gear selected and the vehicle stationary or in forward motion, the transmission could potentially select "Reverse" without warning. This could result in a crash. Dealers will reprogram the Transmission Control Module to fix the issue. The recall began on May 1, 2004. The Jaguar recall number is R513.
