Got it on mine as well.
It's also appeared on the F-Space forums too so maybe we all have dodgy track rod ends?

I think the track rod end is fine, it's just the tightness of the locking nut.
"K452 - Track Rod End Adjusting Locking Nut" is the related document

FourFoot is correct, it's just a re-torque of the lock nut, it may have been incorrect at build :)

Mines booked in for next Thursday, dealer said the software update would take longest of the two so I guess it's just an inspiration of the track rod ends?

Software updates on these cars seem to take hours (my last update took 3hrs), so any mechanical job is quick in comparison. :-)

Its logged for my car too. The "active stream" entry gives a little more info, referring to a locking nut : "K452 - Track Rod End Adjusting Locking Nut"
