The connection of the power supply to the electrical power steering may have been contaminated by heat-activated adhesive. Ageing of this adhesive could lead to a loss of clamping force and thus to a loose connection that may lead to interruption of the power supply.
As a result, the electrical power steering could fail spontaneously, even while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 25 June and 8 July 2020.
