Jaguar Land Rover: Who Requires Or Recommends MIG Brazing?

In Europe, MIG brazing has been required or recommended on a widespread basis for several years. In the U.S., MIG brazing is not as common but is becoming more prevalent. As the RTS team is researching MIG brazing information, we are putting together a series of articles that identify OEM-specific MIG brazing recommendations and requirements for vehicles in the U.S. Let’s see what Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has to say.

JLR MIG brazing information is found in the Workshop manual in area 501-25A Body Repairs - General InformationBody Repair Procedure Graphic Key and is also found is vehicle-specific repair procedures.

The graphic key has the symbols used in the repair procedures to identify where MIG brazing must be used. It identifies the brazing holes as slotted and provides symbols to indicate where multi-panel drilling needs to be used.

The MIG brazing slotted hole is typically 20 mm x 8 mm and the procedure to create it is specified in the repair procedure. Some procedures will require a mix of attachment methods. If the use of adhesive is required, JLR states to keep the adhesive away from the MIG brazing and plug weld areas.

It is important to note that MIG brazing should only be used where indicated in a vehicle-specific repair manual or where specified by the OEM to help ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
