Mercedes-Benz C-Class Battery Line Recall

A handful of Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles sold in Australia will be recalled over concerns about the vehicles battery ground line.

Affecting only five vehicles sold in Australia between August and October in 2014, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer (ACCC).

The ACCC recall notice advising that the threaded connection of the battery ground line may not be designed correctly due to a deviation in the tightening angle monitoring.

In the event of a poor system ground of the battery line a temporarily higher transition resistance could lead to the formation of sparks and local heating. This would increase the risk of a fire.

Letter will be sent to owners of affected Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles.
