Mercedes Airbag recall

Mercedes are recalling some 400,000 UK cars over Air Bag concerns

The affected models include A, B, C, and E-Class, and CLA, GLA, and GLC, built between November 2011 and July 2017.

Mercedes-Benz said its cars were safe to drive under normal operating conditions but urged customers to contact its roadside assistance service if the air bag warning light comes on.

The fault is due to a steering column module clock spring, if its broken, the driver airbag warning light will be displayed in the instrument cluster, as well as a red airbag warning lamp. “In rare circumstances, if the clock spring is broken and the wiring components are not sufficiently earthed, this could lead to an electrostatic discharge which could inadvertently deploy the driver’s airbag.”

Customers who own an affected car will be contacted by the manufacturer and offered a one-hour fix which will be free of charge.
