Problem description:

A small opening may have been melted into the floor due to incorrect welding of a weld stud. Consequently, water may ingress into the right-hand side of the vehicle’s interior/footwell. As a result, various electrical contacts (including for the internal combustion engine, the lighting and the windscreen wipers) could then become wet. This could affect their functioning, increasing the risk of an accident.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE models affected by this recall were manufactured between 27 June 2018 and 25 April 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.

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.
