Privately Imported Mercedes-Benz C and E Class
Coupe and Sedans
Model Years 2007-2015
Front passenger side airbag inflators
18 affected vehicles
What are the defects?
Airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.
What are the hazards?
In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.
What should consumers do?
Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Mercedes-Benz retailer or Mercedes-Benz head office directly via the website at https://www.dealerlocator.mercedes-benz.com.au to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.
Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected, can contact Mercedes-Benz on 1300 659 307.
