Jaguar Land Rover—Range Rover Evoque 2016MY
What are the defects?
The routing of the engine harness may not provide sufficient clearance, and as a result, the wires could contact the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) casing and cause an electrical short.
What are the hazards?
Engine harness contact with the EGR casting can cause the wires within the engine harness protective sleeve to wear through, exposing the wires and potentially causing a short to the metal EGR valve. This can cause a range of vehicle failure modes, and in the worst case it is possible the engine may cut-out with minimal warning to the driver and could potentially cause a crash.
What should consumers do?
Owners will be notified to take their vehicle to a Land Rover dealer who will fit the new wiring harness bracket to the engine assembly.
