Mercedes-Benz A-Class (2017 – 2019)

Published on 6 September 2020

The condensed water drainage hose of the air-conditioning system may not be properly fitted.

In such a case condensed water from the air conditioning system could enter the passenger compartment of the vehicle, ending up in the footwells of the driver and passenger side and in the central tunnel. As a result, any electrical components installed there could be corroded and/or subjected to short circuits or leakage currents.

As a consequence, the SRS control unit could stop working, the vehicle may fail to start, the engine emergency run could be activated while driving, and the functioning of other components (e.g. the fuel pump, automatic/manual emergency call) could be adversely affected.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class models affected by this recall were manufactured between 11 September 2017 and 10 February 2019.

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 Mercedes Benz dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

How to contact your dealer

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
