The screw connection of the 48 V ground connector of the coolant electric compressor may come loose and lead to improper attachment of the ground line cable head. This increases the electrical contact resistance and can cause the temperature at the connection point to increase, increasing the risk of fire.
The Mercedes-Benz CLS vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 15 September and 9 November 2021.
