Mercedes-Benz SLK350 recalls

 

For Models: Mercedes-Benz SLK250, Mercedes-Benz SLK350

Body, Interior & Misc., June 4, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The passenger seat cushion contains a sensing device (occupant classification system, or OCS) to determine if a child safety seat is in use on that seat. The system is designed to turn off the passenger airbag when the system senses a child safety seat in use. These vehicles are being recalled because the system may not correctly classify a very light weight person and incorrectly disable the passenger airbag. This would increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the passenger seat cushion, including the OCS to correct this concern.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz SL550, Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz SLK350

Body, Interior & Misc., October 1, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

These vehicles are equipped with a new type of A/C refrigerant - R1234yf. Testing has determined that escaping R1234yf refrigerant may ignite under specific conditions. A severe frontal crash may rupture one of the air conditioner refrigerant lines, which can result in a gaseous mixture of refrigerant being released into the engine compartment. The resulting fire could spread to additional combustible materials. Dealers will replace the R1234yf refrigerant with R134a (which is the type that had been used previously) along with new refrigerant lines (hoses) designed specifically for R134a.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz CL550, Mercedes-Benz CL600, Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG, Mercedes-Benz CLK350, Mercedes-Benz CLK550, Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz CLS550, Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz S550, Mercedes-Benz S550 4MATIC, Mercedes-Benz S600, Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG, Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG, Mercedes-Benz SL550, Mercedes-Benz SL600, Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG, Mercedes-Benz SLK280, Mercedes-Benz SLK350, Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG

Body, Interior & Misc., May 2, 2008

As a result, the module could fail without warning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the affected modules as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on May 2, 2008. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2008 030005.
