Windshield Wiper Problem Prompts Jaguar XJ Recall

November 24, 2010

WASHINGTON - Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 6,475 MY 2010-2011 XJ vehicles because of a problem with the windshield wiping and washing system. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the front wiper arms-to-spindle fixings were not torqued to specification during manufacture. As a result, the securing nuts could fail and lead to a loss of wiper arm synchronization and a clash of the wiper arms. They could detach from the vehicle as a result, posing a safety risk. 

To remedy the problem, dealers will make sure the wiper arms are fitted securely onto the spindle and the securing nuts will be tightened to the correct torque. There will be no charge for this service. 

The safety recall is expected to get underway around Dec. 13. 

Vehicle owners can contact Jaguar at (800) 637-6837.
