Jaguar has issued a recall for 126 examples of its 2017 and 2018 model-year F-Pace, XE and XF vehicles fitted with 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engines over concerns a fuel leak could pose a fire risk.

The British manufacturer reports that affected models may be fitted with a fuel return hose that could leak.

If the condition occurs, drivers may notice increased fuel odour and see liquid fuel puddles underneath the vehicle.

Jaguar says if fuel leaks onto the road, it poses a skid hazard to other road users. Additionally, if the fuel comes into contact with a hot surface in the engine bay, it increases the risk of a fire.

The number of affected units and VIN ranges for each model line are as follows:

F-Pace (57 vehicles) - SADCA2BN7JA240001 to SADCA2AN3JA899999
XE (40 vehicles) - SAJAB4CN0HCP06281 to SAJAB4BNXJCP18445
XF (29 vehicles) - SAJBB4BN4HCY51636 to SAJBJ4FN6JCY54217

Owners of the recalled vehicles will be contacted directly by Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Australia, and are encouraged to contact their local dealership to arrange the replacement of their fuel return hose free of charge.
