Jaguar XJ8 recalls

 

For Models: Jaguar XJ8, Jaguar XJR

Brakes, June 1, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Jaguar XJ8, Jaguar XJR
