Mercedes-Benz S-Class (2018 – 2020)

Published on 13 October 2020

Due to the lack of documentation, there is no confirmation that the screw connections of the turbocharger’s oil-supply and oil-return pipes were correctly executed during the assembly process.

In the event of a loose screw connection, oil might leak at the oil-supply and/or oil-return pipe of the turbocharger.

The leaking oil might then come into contact with hot components, increasing the risk of fire.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class models affected by this recall were equipped with a 4-cylinder petrol engine and manufactured between 5 March 2018 and 18 March 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.
