Summary:
ON CERTAIN VEHICLES, THE HEADLAMP ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM MAY BE OPERATED WITHOUT SUITABLE INSTRUCTION ON EITHER THE MECHANISM OR IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL. THIS DOES NOT MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT."

Consequence Summary:
AN IMPROPERLY AIMED HEADLAMP COULD PROVIDE LESS EFFECTIVE ROADWAY ILLUMINATION OR COULD CAUSE INCREASED GLARE TO ONCOMING VEHICLES.

Corrective Summary:
OWNERS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH AN OWNER'S MANUAL ADDENDUM CONTAINING THE NECESSARY HEADLAMP AIMING INSTRUCTIONS. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON JANUARY 6, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT JAGUAR AT 1-800-452-4827.
