Mercedes-Benz—Sprinter Van (type 906)—Replace Oil Pan Retaining Bolt
What are the defects?
An engine oil pan retaining bolt which is too short may have been fitted during production. This retaining bolt also serves as a fixing point for the alternator/starter cable duct at the engine block. If the vehicle is involved in a collision and the cable duct is not properly attached, it could be dislodged and create a short circuit involving the unfused cables.
