A borehole in the universal joint on the steering shaft may have an incorrect size.
As a result, there could be play between the bearing fitted into the borehole and the universal joint, which could cause the joint to become detached over time. This would impair the vehicle’s steerability, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class models affected by this recall were manufactured between 30 November 2016 and 14 July 2017.
