What are the defects?

The electric line for the power supply of the coolant pump may make contact with the engine fan, causing damage.

What are the hazards?

This may lead to a malfunction of the coolant pump or a deactivation of the 48V on-board electrical system, potentially causing:

  • the engine to stall due to extremely high coolant temperature
  • the engine to not restart after the shut-off by the ECO start/stop or “glide mode” functions.

In the above cases, the vehicle could stall, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact their most convenient authorised Mercedes-Benz Retailer for a free-of-charge repair.
