Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd — Mercedes-Benz "S" Class Passenger Car
What are the defects?
The clearance between the transmission/alternator wiring harness and the exhaust system may not be sufficient; this may result in damage to the wiring harness. As a result it may not be possible to select the transmission “park” position. Additionally the transmission may shift into “neutral” whilst driving.
What are the hazards?
If the transmission fails it may result in a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Letters will be sent to owners of affected vehicles. For further information or queries, contact Mercedes-Benz Australia on 03 9566 9266.
