Ongoing investigations by Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) into previously manufactured Takata airbags has identified that on certain model year vehicles the airbag modules have non-desiccated inflators containing ammonium nitrate. Jaguar Land Rover is conducting a voluntary safety recall in line with other Original Equipment Manufacturers and will replace the airbags in affected vehicles.

Due to prolonged exposure to combined high heat and humidity, the front airbag module inflator housing may rupture and deploy abnormally in the event of a crash. A front airbag module inflator housing rupture could result in metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants, resulting in serious injury or fatality.  

To rectify the issue, owners will be notified and instructed to take their vehicle to a Land Rover authorised repairer who will fit a replacement airbag. There will be no charge to owners for this repair.
