Problem description:

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.

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 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's history

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.
