Limited to the UK market remains a recall for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (platform 906) equipped with the OM651 diesel engine. 114.800 right-hand vans manufactured between October 2013 to June 2018 are brought into the workshop.

As part of the “NC3AKTU537” campaign, there is a check and if necessary, renewal of the glow plug system, which is used to control the glow plugs and the fuel filter heater. In addition, the workshop should add an additional cover – probably to protect against moisture. Without these measures, there is the threat of a short circuit and worst case scenario a vehicle fire.

Whether such fires have actually occurred, does not emerge from the notification. The manufacturer merely emphasizes that there were “incidents” only in parked vehicles.
