Problem Description

The steering column is not sufficiently earthed. As a result, in the event of an electrostatic discharge, the driver’s airbag may be triggered when not required. This could cause an accident.

The recall affects vehicles produced between 11/2011 and 07/2017.

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 fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.

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.

This notification is purely informative for the vehicle type you have selected. As these deficiencies often relate to specific components (engine type, bodywork, equipment), the recall may not apply to all vehicles of this type.
