Problem description:

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 B-Class models affected by this recall were manufactured between 30 November 2016 and 14 July 2017.

Mercedes recall code: 4692030
Affected models: CLA (BR 117), GLA (BR 156), A-Class (BR 176) and B-Class (BR 242, 246)

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.

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's history

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.
