RepairPal Expert Overview
The system that provides power assist to vehicle braking may fail due to a broken vacuum line fitting. This could make it more difficult to stop a vehicle, and could result in a crash.
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.
A vacuum line fitting to the power brake booster may fracture, causing loss of power assist to the brake system. Dealers will replace the connector end fitting at the brake booster free of charge to resolve the concern.
