Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 Recalls
For vehicles modified by Midwest Automotive Deigns using seat adjusters manufactured by Atwood, the left side seat adjusters may allow the seat to move in the event of a crash. This would increase risk of occupant injury.
The seat belts for the rear bench seat may not be fastened to the body securely. This could cause the belt to fail in an accident, increasing risk of occupant injury.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
For vehicles configured for and equipped with super-high roofs, there may not be enough crash pads installed that protect occupants in a crash. This increases risk of occupant injury.
The vehicle windows may separate from the vehicle body in a crash, resulting in the increased risk of occupant injury.
The maximum weight the vehicle is rated to carry as listed on the tire pressure label located on the vehicle body is incorrect. The weight stated is too high, and could lead to the vehicle being inadvertently overloaded. This could cause axle or tire failure and lead to an accident.
The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
Engine oil may leak from the timing chain tensioner gasket area. This can cause risk of a fire, as well as leave hazardous oil on the road.
A part called an abutting wedge may have not been installed properly. This part makes door opening easier in the event of a severe frontal collision. Without this being installed properly, the doors may be difficult to open following an accident.
An oil leak can develop from the front of the engine.
