TRANSPORTING THE VEHICLE
Vehicle recovery
E91737
Jaguar strongly recommend that the vehicle is
recovered by use of a slide-bed recovery
transporter only.
When the vehicle is transported, the parking
brake must be applied, the wheels chocked and
the Emergency Park Release (EPR) operated.
EPR ensures that the transmission remains in
N and does not automatically select P.
Ensure that transportation is carried out by
suitably qualified persons an that the vehicle is
secured correctly.
While the vehicle is being loaded, the Jaguar
Smart Key should be placed in the starter
control unit.
CAUTIONS
Ensure that the recovery team do not
tow with sling-type, spectacle-type or
towing dolly equipment as damage to the front
or rear underside bodywork may result.
Only use over-wheel/tire tie-downs as
lashing points to secure the vehicle to
the transporter or trailer. Use of any other
position (e.g. lower control arms, towing eyes)
may result in damage to the vehicle.
If the vehicle has defective
transmission, to prevent further
damage, it must be towed with the rear wheels
clear of the ground.
The vehicle must be securely tied down to the
transporter or trailer. Use straps on the front
wheels and tires to secure the vehicle for
transportation.
The towing eye is not designed for securing the
vehicle during transportation.

EMERGENCY PARK RELEASE (EPR)
When recovering your vehicle, it is essential
that the EPR is operated. EPR prevents the
transmission from automatically selecting P,
ensuring that the transmission remains in
neutral (N). EPR is operated by a lever located
beneath a trim panel in the cubby box. Before
activating EPR, select P, apply the parking
brake and turn the ignition off.

When the EPR is activated, the JaguarDrive
selector will remain in P, but the selector
indicator and the gear display in the message
center will both flash N (if ignition is on), to

TOWING POINTS
WARNING
Never use the towing eyes to tow a
trailer, caravan etc. Doing so may
result in vehicle damage and serious
1
injury.
CAUTIONS
Care must be taken to avoid damaging
the bumpers and front apron.
The towing eye is not suitable for solid
bar towing.
2
A screw-in front towing eye is provided with
the tool kit, located beneath the luggage
compartment. The towing eye has a left-hand
thread and must be screwed in a
counterclockwise direction when fitting.
The front towing point is located behind a
plastic cover on the left-hand side of the vehicle
(as viewed from the front).
1. To access the towing point, press the
plastic cover on the top to unclip. Remove
the cover.
3
2. Screw the towing eye into the vehicle, right
up to the shoulder.
3. The rear tie-down point is in the center of
the vehicle to the rear of the exhaust
silencer. Use this point only when the
vehicle is to be towed rearwards on
straight level ground for the least amount
of distance possible or when loading onto
a recovery vehicle.
E91729
WARNING
Avoid contact with a hot exhaust
when fitting equipment to the rear
towing point.
The towing points at the front and rear
of the vehicle, are designed for
on-road recovery only. If they are to
be used for any purpose other than those
indicated, it may result in vehicle damage and
serious injury.

TOWING ON FOUR WHEELS
2. Secure the towing attachment from the
recovery vehicle to the front towing eye.
See TOWING POINTS (page 240).
WARNING
Ensure that the Jaguar Smart Key
remains docked whilst the vehicle is
being towed. Removing the Smart
Key will engage the steering lock, preventing
the vehicle from being steered correctly.
If the engine cannot be run whilst the
vehicle is being towed, there will be
no power assistance for the steering
or brakes. This will result in greater effort
being required to steer or slow the vehicle and
greatly increased stopping distances.
3. Dock the Jaguar Smart Key and switch on
the ignition. See GENERAL INFORMATION
(page 128).
CAUTIONS
Leaving the ignition switched on for
extended periods will cause the battery
to drain.
4. Apply the foot brake and release the
parking brake.
5. With the foot brake still applied, activate
the Emergency Park Release (EPR). See
EMERGENCY PARK RELEASE (EPR)
(page 238).
CAUTIONS
The vehicle should only be towed in a
forward direction with all four wheels on
the ground.
The vehicle should only be towed for a
maximum of 0.8 km (0.5 miles), at a
maximum speed of 48 km/h (30 mph). Towing
for a greater distance or at a higher speed, may
result in serious damage to the transmission.
6. The vehicle can now be towed a maximum
of 0.8 km (0.5 miles), at a maximum speed
of 48 km/h (30 mph).
7. Upon arrival at the destination, ensure
wherever possible that the vehicle is
parked on firm level ground.
8. Lower the EPR lever to re-engage P (Park).
See EMERGENCY PARK RELEASE (EPR)
(page 238).
Note: The recommended recovery method is
to raise all four wheels and transport on a
transporter or trailer designed for that purpose.
9. Apply the parking brake.
The removable towing eye is primarily for
emergency use when towing for short
distances, e.g. removing the vehicle if causing
an obstruction or when winching onto a
recovery transporter.
10. Switch off the ignition and undock the
Jaguar Smart Key.
WARNING
Use extreme caution when detaching
towing equipment. Vehicle movement
is possible which can result in serious
injury.
When being towed, the ignition system should
be switched to convenience mode, to release
the steering lock and render the indicators,
horn and brake lamps operational.
11. Remove the towing attachment from the
towing eye.
Towing procedure
1. The vehicle should be parked on firm, level
ground, with the parking brake on and the
gear selector in P (Park).
