The elastomer material of the oil feed line for the exhaust-gas turbocharger may not comply with the specification, allowing oil to leak out.
Consequently, the leaking oil could come into contact with hot components, increasing the risk of fire.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class models affected by this recall were manufactured between 7 May 2018 and 23 October 2019.
