Mercedes-Benz GLB (2019 – 2020)

Published on 10 August 2020

The bodywork around the front wheelhouses has not been sealed in accordance with the specifications, allowing water to penetrate into the front foot spaces and damage the control units and other electrical components installed in those areas.

As a result, the instrument cluster could stop showing information, the braking assistance (e.g. ABS, ESP) could be restricted, or the engine could stall while driving or no longer be able to start, increasing the risk of an accident.

The Mercedes-Benz GLB models affected by this recall were manufactured between 2 May 2019 and 24 January 2020.

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.
