Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See attached VIN list

What are the defects?

On affected vehicles the screw/bolt in the range group catch bolts may come loose.

What are the hazards?

This would reduce the distance of the catch bolt, resulting in gear shifting problems and possible failure of the gearshift system. The loss of shifting capability during vehicle operation may lead to a loss of forward movement and coasting of the vehicle, increasing the risk of an accident for the occupants and the surrounding traffic.

What should consumers do?

Owners are requested to contact their authorised Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle dealership to have their truck inspected and repaired.
