What are the defects?

The upper anchor point for the seatbelt for the left hand side third row seat (C-D pillar) has not been installed correctly. The plastic trim covering the fixing hole and the body mounted upper anchor point are misaligned. This misalignment can cause plastic material to become trapped in the fixing threads during installation of the upper anchorage fixing during vehicle assembly, which may result in reduced clamp load, lack of full thread engagement or damage to the fastener bolt.

What are the hazards?

The seat belt may not perform as required during a collision. If the third row seat on the left hand side is occupied during a collision, the occupant of that seat may not receive the full protection of the seatbelt system and may be injured or, in the case of a serious accident, be killed. The improperly restrained passenger may also present an injury risk to the passenger in the second row left hand seat position.

What should consumers do?

The third row left hand side seating position should not be used until the vehicle has been inspected and repaired, if needed.

Consumers will be notified via email, SMS or letter and asked to visit an authorised Jaguar Land Rover retailer as soon as possible. The vehicles will be inspected and repaired as required, free of charge.
