Took mine in today to Jaguar Derby, waste of time, the technician said it’s not corroded enough to warrant a replacement! I despair on a less than 2 year old car with £15K on clock i dont expect to see any red rust corrosion albeit light? I’m visiting my supplying dealer on Friday for it’s complimentary second service so I’ll take this up with them there. I’ve also noticed some rust starting on the rear drive shafts. Really poor this on a £110K supercar, I’ve seen 15 year old German Cars with less underbody corrosion.

Guys I forgot to mention does the SSM state the level of corrosion required prior to replacement, does it have to penetrate the frames or just be evident as red rust.

Mine is 2yrs old and Derby replaced it 2/3 weeks ago.
The update from Derby was that mine was the last.
My comments here. It's not the dealer unfortunately....

Yep i should have actioned this when I bought the car earlier in the year. I still don’t understand what constitutes a claim under the normal warranty for corrosion and why it can’t be done under that route?

The SSM says:

If any of the Rear Under body braces are exhibiting red rust corrosion, replace them with the new part number as listed below, and submit an EPQR with photo's attached of the concern and quoting this SSM.

Many thanks for this and all your info posts folks, I spoke again with Derby today, trusting them with the car as they have undertaken several of these replacements already, and asked them to qualify what constitutes corrosion under the normal warranty as the SSM stated exactly this. They very kindly have spoken with Jaguar Warranty Hub, made a strong case and I’m very pleased to say Jaguar have taken this on board and will replace the parts with the enhanced ones :D . I’m so glad it’s been satisfactorily resolved. I’m now awaiting a date to have this work undertaken. I love these cars and wanted to trade up for an SVR but was extremely reluctant knowing the thing might rot. I’m much happier now it’s finally been resolved knowing I won’t have issues with mine in the short term future.

Yes they will be getting all my future services, we are locating into the area so it’s good to know there’s a great local dealer.

Guys, is it just the 3 braces that are replaced, are all the bolts replaced?

Ive also read somewhere that someone has claimed for other new corroded underbody parts?
