The screw connection of an electrical connector at the pre-fuse box in the passenger footwell may be defective, which could increase the electrical transition resistance at that connection. As a result, the high electrical currents flowing through the connection could increase the temperature in this area, increasing the risk of fire.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 7 October 2020 and 31 March 2021.
