    Hi Peter. When were your last set fitted? Im sure Iíve read somewhere that they have changed the design to remove the protruding seam but canít remember where or when.

    Iíve done 16500 miles in 18 months or so; the original driverís seat has a small section, maybe 1cm long thatís worn away.

    My current set were fitted in January 19 but although I’d been told the design was different they look the same to me. This set has probably only done 3000 miles in six months. In general covers have been replaced every 3-4000 miles.
    I’ve had Jaguars for twenty years and never had this sort of problem. Not impressed!

They are on back order so I am hoping that they arrive before JLR goes into receivership which is bound to happen before too long as Tata cannot stand the enormous losses currently being filed.
    I was aware that Jaguar had a TSB on this issue but not a recall. Is this true or are you using that word incorrectly? Iím in the US and a recall is a legal process started by the United States Department of Transportation to force automobile manufacturers to address design and safety issues brought to their attention by numerous consumer complaints.The process gives the manufacturer a specified timeframe to determine a design change or fix and to repair the affected customer cars.

    They called me this morning to say ďthe covers are in, can we book an appointment to fit?Ē

    Iím quite impressed.

    Anyone know if the replacement covers are better or different to the originals?
    Famous last words. I took the car in and left it yesterday, supposed to be back last night. Then today. Just called them, they're aiming for 1/1.30 tomorrow. 2.5 days to change seat covers.

    I wish I hadn't bothered.
