Problem Description

On certain vehicles, the nuts to attach the conductor rails inside the fuse box in the boot may not have been installed. This could lead to increased contact resistance between the conductor rails and, as a consequence, cause a fire or failure in the engine functioning, seat belt functions and the dashboard, leading to an increased risk of accident and injury.

The recall affects vehicles manufactured between August 2017 and February 2018.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, the motor industry standards body Motor Codes offers a Vehicle Safety Recall search. By using this, any recalls that are active for your car can be identified. To use this facility, you’ll need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your car – this is a long code number that appears on the chassis plate of your car or – on most UK-registered cars – in the bottom-left corner of your windscreen.

If it’s confirmed there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a Mercedes Benz dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer. Usually that’ll be your nearest franchised dealership, or ‘main dealer’ as they’re sometimes known.
