Mercedes-Benz recalls certain A-Class, B-Class, CLA, and GLA passenger vehicles

JUNE 10, 2021

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on a number of their passenger vehicles models, including the following: A-Class, B-Class, CLA and GLA.

A safety issue has been identified whereby a bore hole in the universal joint on the steering shaft may not meet the specifications.

Mercedes-Benz recalls various passenger model vehicles


JUNE 9, 2021

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on a number of their passenger vehicles models, including the following.  CLA-Class, GLA-Class, M-/GLE-/GL-/GLS-Class, GLE-/GLS-Class, SLK-/SLC-Class, A-Class, AMG GT, C-Class, E-Class Coupe/Convertible, E-Class, S-Class Coupe/Convertible, CLS-Class, S-Class, SL-Class, B-/GLA-/GLB-Class, GLC-Class, AMG GT 4-doors Coupe, GLE-Class Coupe, EQC-Class and G-Class.

A safety issue has been identified whereby that in certain vehicles the emergency call system may not behave in accordance with the specifications. A temporary fall in the on-board voltage levels resulting from an accident could mean that the location of the vehicle communicated when an emergency call is made does not correspond to the actual location of the vehicle. This could delay the arrival of emergency vehicles, thus potentially increasing the effects of the accident.

In relation to the above recall, vehicles affected by this will be processed by way of automated ‘over the air’ software update. Customers are not required to visit workshops as this update will be performed automatically.

Mercedes-Benz recalls certain GLE and GLS passenger vehicles

MAY 26, 2021

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on a number of their passenger vehicles models, including the following: GLE and GLS.

A safety issue has been identified whereby in certain vehicles of its GLE and GLS series (BR 167), the condensed water drainage hose of the air-conditioning system may not be properly fitted. In this case condensed water from the air conditioning system could enter the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Condensed water would enter in the left or right foot well and could cause corrosion in the electrical components installed there and/or lead to short-circuits or leakage currents. This would increase the risk of fire from short circuits. Furthermore, the automatic emergency call (eCall) could fail, the vehicle could fail to unlock and/or start, and the engine emergency run could also be activated in an on-road vehicle. This would increase the risk of injury and accident.

There are 78 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 28 August 2018 to 18 July 2020.

What to do:

Motor Distributors Limited will directly contact all affected customers by post, advising them to make an appointment with their local dealer/authorised repairer where all necessary repairs will be carried out.

Mercedes-Benz recalls certain C-Class and GLC passenger vehicles

MAY 18, 2021

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on a number of their passenger vehicles models, including the following: C-Class and GLC.

A safety issue has been identified whereby the connection of the inerting system’s gas pipes did not comply with the specifications. In the event of an accident, the inerting system would deliberately route argon shielding gas for cooling to the points where there could be contact between the leaking refrigerant R1234yf and hot engine components. The risk of fire in the event of an accident might thus not be reduced as intended.

There are 112 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 5 February 2016 to 3 November 2020.

What to do:

Motor Distributors Limited will directly contact all affected customers by post, advising them to make an appointment with their local dealer/authorised repairer where all necessary repairs will be carried out.
