The Mercedes-Benz’s sunroof recall, already known from the USA, is a global matter now.

“The adhesive connection between the glass cover and the frame of the sunroof could not meet the specification,” Daimler’s spokesperson confirmed to kfz-rueckrufe.de. In other words, the glass part of the sunroof can fly away while driving.

A failure may occur with some models of C-Class (BR 203), CLK (BR 209), E-Class (BR 211) and CLS (BR 219) with a production date between January and August 2006. “In addition, vehicles manufactured between 1999 to 2010, in which the sunroof was installed during the repair, could also be affected,” said the spokesman.

According to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority, the company recalls almost 1.6 million vehicles worldwide, of which over 381,000 are registered in Germany.

Mercedes-Benz anticipates that the sunroof replacement, which can take up to two hours, only has to be carried out on a maximum of two per cent of the vehicles that are being recalled. The internal manufacturer code of the recall is “7891003“.

Where now?


What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.
