I saw this in Topix - however I get access denied when I try and open it.
How do you get access to actually read the alerts?

Jaguar mobile technician heard my click this morning - he was aware of the issue and had heard it on another SVR. The car will be booked in for a fix - he said it was a "wheel bearing" issue. Not sure whether that means a new part or something else. Will try and find out more when my car gets fixed. He said there was no safety issue in the meantime!

Would be good if someone could open the link that p3eps posted above...

Might be worth asking for it in the Technical Documents section?

My car is STILL with the dealer (although GPS tells me it’s at the bodyshop just now).
They called me the other day and advised that the noise was the tyres skipping.
I can’t verify my own car, as I haven’t driven it for such a long time... but their demonstrator is 100% not tyres skipping! It’s REALLY loud and obvious - even with the windows shut.

I was in a multi story car park the other day, and naturally put the windows down to start the car 😂
When I drove away and round the 90deg corners, the ‘ticking’ was super loud.

Just had a call from my dealer - the car is booked in for the end of this month to fix the clicking - I am told they will need the car for 3 days! - seems like a major fix if they need the car that long. Hopefully new cars being built won't have this problem.

It's possible it's just a batch of duff wheel bearings so not all cars are affected but who knows?

Question for p3eps - do you still have the demo SVR (if so why so long?!) and does is it still click when steering at low speeds?
I ask because for a few days my car seemed to stop clicking but then it came back and sounded really loud!
Then on other days it goes quiet again. Car seems fine for normal driving.
In any event something is not right so hopefully the fix next week will sort it.

Afraid so - still got the demo.
4 weeks today.
Why so long...? Been at the bodyshop twice, waiting for warranty approval, various meetings etc. Getting them to accept all costs.
Car is due back to me at the end of the week. I haven’t driven it for 6 weeks (was on holiday the fortnight before they collected it) other than a couple of laps of their car park last week with the tech to see if it clicked.

Mine is very faint, but the demonstrator is REALLY bad. It does it all the time, and is really obvious - even with music on. They told me it was the tyres skipping (as per their bulletin), but after the tech heard it, he said it was something else - possibly bearings?

Wow - 4 weeks - but at least you get to wear out their SVR rather than yours!

Don’t you just love Jaguar dealers?
Having waited several weeks for the clicking steering to be fixed (new wheel bearings needed - a known issue) a cock up meant no loan car available today so now rebooked for mid-August! A lack of loan cars is reason for the long delay. Time to try another dealer...

You can’t get a loan car, and I can’t get rid of one. That’s over 5 weeks now. Due to get mine back NEXT Wednesday!
