Jaguar Land Rover will inform its dealerships about the recall on August 4, 2022, while owners of impacted vehicles will be alerted on or before September 16. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to an authorized Jaguar Land Rover dealership where a technician will inspect the seat belt pre-tensioner tubes and will replace them in case of requirement.
