What are the defects?

Oil foam may develop in the system's oil reservoir under dynamic operating conditions if the oil is below the minimum level. This may cause oil to escape via the ventilation bores in the cap of the reservoir.

What are the hazards?

The escaping oil could spray onto hot component parts of the exhaust system and could cause a fire.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact their nearest Mercedes-Benz passenger car dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle free of charge.
