Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See attached VIN list

What are the defects?

During assembly, two nuts for mounting busbars in the prefuse box located in the vehicle's trunk may not have been installed.

What are the hazards?

This could increase resistances between the busbars and thus present a fire hazard. In addition, the interruption of electrical contact of the busbars may lead to function failures. The running of the engine, belt functions and the instrument cluster could be among the components affected. This may increase the risk of an accident and also the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

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.
