Jaguar Recall J019: Vehicles Wiper Arm Durability

2011 Jaguar XJ

If the wiper arms lose synchronization and clash, they could detach from the vehicle, reducing a driver's visibility and increasing the risk of crash.

Visibility — Windshield Wiper/Washer

Summary
Jaguar is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Xj vehicles manufactured from July 28, 2009, through November 3, 2010. 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.
Actions
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 1-800-637-6837.
