Charging Dock Door Lock?

Post by Tall Phil » Sun Feb 21, 2021 10:36 am

Hi, is the door to the charging bay on the front left wing meant to lock? Mine doesn't. When the car is locked I can still open the charge bay door.

Ah, okay, then that will be a item for them to look at when it next goes in. Thanks.

It does lock but I don't think the lock has any point it's not like someone is going to steal the power is it?

If mine stopped locking with the doors I may be more pleased than annoyed as it is a bit of a pain when wanting to plug it in to have to unlock.

mine stopped locking and required a part replacement under warranty.

Mine had the opposite problem. Locked shut and wouldn't open. Had to call Jaguar Assistance, and they used brute force to open it. Broke the lock, but I haven't bothered to have it fixed under warranty - it closes OK, and I don't want to risk it happening again, with the resulting inconvenience.
Really can't see why it needs a locking cover anyway - 'electrons' are not really susceptible to theft!!

Thanks everyone for your answers. I am wondering whether I will bother to get it fixed.

Would probably have it fixed whilst its under warranty but wouldn't be rushing to have it done either not sure if other manufacturers have a lock on their charging flaps but it does seem pointless.

I've just had mine replaced, the whole charging unit had to be replaced not just the lock.

Wow, that’s just madness. Replace the whole unit, shezz.
I will certainly get that sorted before the warranty runs out.
