H074NAS1 – SAFETY RECALL: Brake Hose Bracket – 2018 Jaguar E-Pace

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V140
Manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC
Components SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
Potential Number of Units Affected 41

 

Chafing Brake Hose may Cause Brake Fluid Leak

A brake fluid leak can lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

 

Summary

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain 2018 Jaguar E-Pace vehicles. The brackets that secure the front brake hoses may not have been installed properly, allowing the front brake hoses to contact the tires, possibly resulting in a brake fluid leak.

 

Remedy

Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the front brake hose brackets, replacing any that do not provide sufficient clearance, free of charge. The recall began on April 16, 2018. Owners may contact Jaguar customer service at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar’s number for this recall is H074.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

SAFETY RECALL H074 (NHTSA 18V140): BRAKE HOSE BRACKET SERVICE BULLETIN

 

21-MAR-18 NO.: 7-147USA SEC.: RECALL MKT.: USA

 

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of its intent to perform a voluntary Safety Recall on certain 2018 model year Jaguar E-PACE vehicles imported into the United States market. Information relating to this Recall will be posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

United States Federal regulations require that retailers must be notified within a reasonable time after the manufacturer decides that a defect that relates to motor vehicle safety or a noncompliance exists.

United States Federal law requires retailers to complete any outstanding safety Recall service before a new vehicle is delivered to the buyer or lessee. Violation of this requirement by a retailer could result in a civil penalty of up to $21,000.00 per vehicle.

This Recall Service Bulletin serves as notification to all Jaguar retailers in the United States and Federalized Territories that any affected new vehicles may not be sold and delivered for customer use until the Recall repair is completed.

 

THIS BULLETIN UPDATES 7-146USA

 

DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE

An issue has been identified on a limited number of vehicles within the listed Affected Vehicle Range with the assembly of the front left and right brake flexi hose brackets. The brake hose brackets were subject to unauthorized plant manufacturing operations. This unauthorized operation has taken the bracket position away from design specification.

 

AFFECTED VEHICLE RANGE

E-PACE (X540)
Model Year:  …………….. 2018
VIN:  …………………………… SADFL2FX9J1Z01546-SADFM2GX9J1Z06323

A total of 41 vehicles are potentially involved in the USA and Federalized Territories. Visit the Jaguar Business Network (JBN) website for a list of affected unsold (as of 15 March 2018) vehicles.

 

EFFECT ON VEHICLE OPERATION

Vehicles in this condition may not meet design specification clearance requirements between the front wheel and hose and in certain scenarios may lead to the brake flexi hose coming into contact with the front tires, leading to chafing and ultimately a loss of brake fluid.

Brake fluid loss will illuminate a red warning triangle on the instrument cluster instructing the driver to seek qualified assistance. If sufficient brake fluid leaks out, this will ultimately result in extended brake pedal travel combined with reduced braking performance in the corresponding brake circuit and vehicle stopping distances will increase.

Loss of one braking circuit could compromise vehicle stability and significantly increase the risk of an accident.

 

SERVICE PROGRAM / REWORK ACTION

Owners will be notified by mail and instructed to take their vehicle to an authorized Jaguar retailer who will inspect the brake flexi hose bracket. If the clearance is not to the required specification, the technician will replace either one or both of the front brake flexi hose brackets. There will be no charge to owners for this action.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION

Owner notification is expected to occur on or before 23 April 2018.

 

ACTION TO BE TAKEN

Use the Jaguar Land Rover claims submission system to ensure that the vehicle is affected by this Program prior to undertaking any rework action.

Retailers are required to HOLD affected new vehicles that are within your control and refrain from releasing the vehicles for new vehicle sale pending completion of the rework action. Affected vehicles already in the hands of customers should be updated at the next available opportunity.

Jaguar Land Rover North America recommends that affected sales demonstrator and loaner vehicles are repaired before use and that used vehicles are repaired before sale. Retailers who choose to proceed against this recommendation, where legally permitted, must clearly and conspicuously disclose the open recall to the applicable customers. Refer to Technical Bulletin H074NAS, SAFETY RECALL: Brake Hose Bracket, for detailed repair instructions.

CONDITION SUMMARY:

SITUATION:

An issue has been identified on certain vehicles within the listed Affected Vehicle Range with the assembly of the front left and right brake hose brackets. The brake hose brackets were subject to unauthorized plant manufacturing operations. This unauthorized operation has taken the bracket position away from design specification.

Vehicles in this condition may not meet design specification clearance requirements between the front wheel or tire and the brake hose. In certain scenarios this may lead to the brake hose coming into contact with the front wheel or tire, leading to abrasion and ultimately a loss of brake fluid. Brake fluid loss will illuminate a red warning triangle on the Instrument Cluster (IC) instructing the driver to seek qualified assistance. If sufficient brake fluid leaks out, this will ultimately result in extended brake pedal travel combined with reduced braking performance in the corresponding brake circuit and vehicle stopping distances will increase.

Loss of one braking circuit could compromise vehicle stability and significantly increase the risk of an accident.

 

ACTION:

Retailers are required to HOLD affected new vehicles that are within your control and refrain from releasing the vehicles for new vehicle sale pending completion of the Workshop Procedure detailed in this Technical Bulletin. Unsold vehicles should have this performed as part of the Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) process but must have it completed prior to vehicle handover to the customer.

Affected vehicles already in the hands of customers should be updated at the next available opportunity.
