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.
