Jaguar is recalling 7,918 MY 2009 Xf vehicles. The rear safety belt D-ring assembly may not rotate properly around the safety belt anchorage mounting bolt. If the assembly is not held together when tightening, the D-ring and/or washer can separate from the shoulder of the spacer, allowing these parts to be partially clamped by the spacer, forming a burr on either the D-ring or the washer and subsequently limiting proper rotation of the D-ring.
Dealers will inspect the outboard rear safety belt D-ring and, if necessary, the D-ring assembly will be removed and any burrs on the D-ring or washer filed flat. The D-ring assembly will then be reinstalled to correct the condition. The recall began on August 29, 2008. Owners may contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827.
