Problem Description

The sealing cap of the Active Curve System’s oil reservoir does not prevent oil from leaking out. Oil may leak out and spray onto hot components. As a consequence, it may ignite and lead to fire.

The recall affects vehicles manufactured from the start of the production until June 2016.

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.
