Mfg's Report Date: MAR 14, 2011
Component: STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST:HOSE, PIPING, AND CONNECTIONS
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 6,085


Summary:
JAGUAR IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010 XK AND XF VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JUNE 27, 2009, THROUGH MARCH 10, 2010. THE POWER ASSIST STEERING (PAS) PIPES HAVE BEEN SUPPLIED WITH ZINC-NICKEL PLATING THAT DOES NOT MEET FULLY THE CORROSION PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS OF JAGUAR'S ENGINEERING SPECIFICATION. AFTER AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME IN SERVICE, CORROSION OF THE PAS PIPES WILL OCCUR THAT MAY LEAD TO PIN-HOLING OF THE PIPE.

Consequence:
PIN-HOLING OF THE PAS PIPES COULD ALLOW PRESSURIZED POWER STEERING FLUID TO LEAK INTO THE UNDER-HOOD AND ENGINE BAY AREA. A LOSS OF POWER STEERING FLUID WILL RESULT IN A LOSS OF POWER ASSIST STEERING. ALSO, THAT FLUID MAY IGNITE IF IT COMES INTO CONTACT WITH AN IGNITION SOURCE OR A SURFACE AT SUFFICIENTLY HIGH ENOUGH TEMPERATURE, CAUSING A VEHICLE FIRE.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE POWER STEERING FLUID PIPES WITH PARTS MANUFACTURED TO THE REQUIRED CORROSION PROTECTION SPECIFICATION. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGED. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE APRIL 11, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT JAGUAR AT 1-800-452-4827.
