Description: Diesel particulate filter excessive heat
VIN: XJ - SAJAC721067G45259 to SAJAA711377H17094, S-TYPE - SAJAC031167N32679 to SAJAA011387N82818

Numbers: 8028
Defect: The diesel particulate filters (DPF) of the 2.7 litre engine may exhibit smoke and or fire from the underside of the vehicle, flames emanating from within the rear exhaust tailpipe or an orange glow from the underside of the vehicle. Heat from within the DPF can radiate to the surrounding vehicle components and may lead to heating of the underside of the transmission tunnel and subsequent melting of interior components, with the potential for an interior fire.
Action: Recalled vehicles will have the engine management control module re-programmed with the latest calibration file. The vehicle will self test for DPF blockage which where required, will be replaced.

VIN: L73665 TO L85960
Build Date: May 2000 to July 2000
Numbers: 2109
Defect: A component within each front seat belt buckle may have received insufficient heat treatment. This may result in unintentional release of the seat belt latch if it is subjected to a loading which exceeds the standard specified by EEC Regulation 16, during an accident.
Action: Recall vehicles and check production date codes on both front seat belt buckle assemblies. Replace all buckle assemblies falling within the affected production dates with quality assured units.

VIN: L00001 TO L92349
Build Date: January 1999 to September 2000
Numbers: 18062
Defect: An under torque condition may exist in the front lower ball joint. This may result in a high bending fatigue loading of the joint which could result in a fracture of the first thread of the ball stud, which then leads to separation of the lower control arm from the knuckle. This separated condition will limit steering control.
Action: Recall affected vehicles and check ball joint security and condition. Replace vertical link if necessary.
Launch Date: 23 November 2000
