Front Axle Wheel Bearings Not Seated Causing Front Wheel To Detach

Recall Details

The front axle wheel bearings may not have been correctly seated during manufacturing, resulting in the front wheels possibly coming off while driving. Dealers will inspect the front axle wheel bearing retaining rings, correcting their position as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The front axle wheel bearings may not have been properly seated during installation. This could result in the front wheels of the vehicle detaching while driving, increasing risk of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Metris must be performed by a Mercedes Benz dealership. Mercedes Benz will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is not available as of the time of this writing). 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.
