Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLS-Class seal recall

Damaged seal could spark fire in Mercedes-Benz models.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLS-Class seal recall - a total of just seven Mercedes-Benz E and CLS cars are affected.

Owners of a small number of Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLS-Class vehicles will be asked to return their vehicles to a Mercedes-Benz dealer to have a potentially faulty engine compartment seal replaced.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLS-Class seal recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and affects a total of only seven vehicles sold in Australia between the 1st of April and the 1st of May this year.

The ACCC recall notice says the cars may have been fitted with a damaged seal on the secondary bulkhead in the engine compartment; this seal may come loose and partially fall into the engine compartment.

If the seal comes in contact with hot engine components this could result in a risk of fire.

A letter will be sent to the owners of affected vehicles.
