RepairPal Expert Overview
The bolts that secure the axles to the front and rear drive axle carriers may not be assembled properly. This would allow the axles to become unstable and vehicle handling would become compromised, increasing the risk of an accident.
Recall repairs on your Mercedes Benz vehicle must be performed by a Mercedes Benz dealership. Mercedes Benz will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in February 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Mercedes Benz dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The front and rear axle bolts may not be assembled correctly to the axle carriers. Dealers will replace the axle carrier bolts free of charge to resolve the concern.
