In this latest recall wrap, all vehicle recall notices have been issued by recall-experts Mercedes-Benz.
To begin with, 107 examples of 2017-2018 Mercedes-Benz S560 models (VINs found here) have been recalled due to the closure material of the engine plugs potentially failing due to high engine oil pressure.
This failure could lead to an oil leak with a red warning message being illuminated in the instrument cluster. Ignoring this warning could lead to the engine running dry and causing stalling and engine damage. Oil could also potentially leak onto the road causing a hazard to other road users.
Mercedes-Benz has also re-recalled a large number of 2018-2020 X-Class vehicles (VINs found here) due to the operator’s manual containing incorrect maximum roof loading information.
The figure recorded in the manual is for stationary only limits which decrease when the vehicle is moving due to additional pressure on the roof. If the roof loading is above the safe level, the support for the roof load may fail. The roof load may shift unexpectedly and the canopy could break and cause the load to fall. This may also affect the performance of the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP).
Another recall from Mercedes-Benz came for 2019-2020 Sprinter VS30 vans with rotating seats (VINs found here) which may have a defect where the electric lines and wiring harness for the side airbag that are routed near the frame for the rotating seats may get jammed and damaged.
Damage to the electric lines may cause the random triggering of the side airbag or prevent deployment in the event of an accident.
The final recall notice is for 2019-2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class and GLC vehicles (VINs found here) which may have an issue with the screws for the turbocharger oil feed and oil return lines being incorrectly tensioned during the assembly process.
Loose screws may lead to an oil leak from the turbocharger oil feed and/or the oil return line which could come into contact with hot engine components and ignite.
In all cases, Mercedes-Benz requires affected owners to contact their preferred dealer to arrange a free inspection and repair of their vehicle.
