What are the defects?

The headlight adjustment may not be correct.

What are the hazards?

The deviation in the headlight adjustment may lead to a reduction or an enlargement of the illumination. In the case of headlights that are adjusted too low, the visual range during driving would be reduced. In the case of headlights that are adjusted too high, oncoming traffic could be dazzled. Incorrect adjustment of the headlights may increase the risk of an accident, which could result in injury or death of vehicle occupants or other road users.

What should consumers do?

Consumers are asked to contact their most convenient Mercedes-Benz Retailer for a free of charge inspection and adjustment, if required.
