What are the defects?

The lock symbol embossed on the operating lever for the child safety lock may show the locking status incorrectly.

What are the hazards?

The incorrectly embossed symbol may result in a misinterpretation of the locking status of the child safety lock. It may be possible to open the rear doors from the inside even though locking them. It may also not be possible to open the rear doors from the inside after unlocking the child safety latch. This could result in a risk of injury and/or an increased risk of injury for the occupants in the rear seats.

The display and use of the child safety lock is shown correctly in the operator's manual.

What should consumers do?

Mercedes-Benz will contact all affected consumers by mail to advise of the recall and provide instructions on obtaining a free-of-charge repair.

Consumers are asked to contact their most convenient Mercedes-Benz retailer to arrange a check and repair of their vehicle.
