2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Trunk Lid Is Falling Apart
June 19, 2015
About two months ago, we took our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe to the dealer for scheduled maintenance. One of the service campaigns that the dealer addressed during that visit was "delaminating load spaces." It would appear the job needs to be done again.
This problem looks pretty basic. The sound deadening underneath the trunk cover is glued on and the glue isn't strong enough. When I opened the Jag's trunk to see this happening, I momentarily considered picking up $10 worth of epoxy to fix it. But this is a loaner car, so I drove to Hornburg Jaguar instead. David, the service advisor had me in and out in about 5 minutes.
At first, he suggested that I leave the car over the weekend but when I showed him how easily I could take the part out of the car, he was fine with me leaving the trunk cover so they could do their work and I could keep driving the F-Type. We'll wait for their call to pick up the trunk cover and re-install it.
