Summary:
JAGUAR IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010-2011 XJ VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JULY 28, 2009, THROUGH NOVEMBER 3, 2010, FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 104, WINDSHIELD WIPING AND WASHING SYSTEMS. THE FRONT WIPER ARMS TO SPINDLE FIXINGS WERE NOT TORQUED TO SPECIFICATION DURING MANUFACTURING. AS A RESULT, THE SECURING NUTS COULD FAIL TO PERFORM AS INTENDED, RESULTING IN A LOSS OF WIPER ARM SYNCHRONIZATION AND A CLASH OF THE WIPER ARMS.

Consequence:
IF THE WIPER ARMS LOSE SYNCHRONIZATION AND CLASH, THEY COULD DETACH FROM THE VEHICLE, REDUCING A DRIVERS VISIBILITY AND INCREASING THE RISK OF CRASH.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL ENSURE THE WIPER ARMS ARE FITTED SECURELY ONTO THE SPINDLE AND THE SECURING NUTS WILL BE TIGHTENED TO THE CORRECT TORQUE. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE DECEMBER 13, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT JAGUAR AT 800-637-6837.

Notes:
JAGUAR SAFETY RECALL NO. J019. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
