Summary:
ON CERTAIN VEHICLES, THE HEADLAMP ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM MAY BE OPERATED WITHOUT SUITABLE INSTRUCTION ON EITHER THE MECHANISM OR IN THE OWNERS MANUAL. THIS DOES NOT MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT.

Consequence:
AN IMPROPERLY AIMED HEADLAMP COULD PROVIDE LESS EFFECTIVE ROADWAY ILLUMINATION OR COULD CAUSE INCREASED GLARE TO ONCOMING VEHICLES.

Remedy:
OWNERS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH AN OWNERS MANUAL ADDENDUM CONTAINING THE NECESSARY HEADLAMP AIMING INSTRUCTIONS. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING DECEMBER 2003. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT JAGUAR AT 1-800-452-4827.

Notes:
JAGUAR RECALL NO. R842. CUSTOMERS CAN ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY
ADMINISTRATIONS AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
