What are the defects?

The design of the rear wall cabinets is not sufficient to ensure their integrity is maintained in the case of a frontal collision.

What are the hazards?

In the event of an accident, the rear wall cabinet components may become detached, and they and the cabinet contents may transform into lethal projectiles resulting in injury or death to vehicle occupants.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicle can contact their authorised Daimler Commercial Vehicle Dealership as soon as possible to have the rear wall cabinet removed until a reinforced design is available.
Note:  We ask owner to have the rear wall cabinet removed by your Authorised Daimler Truck Dealership or to stop using the vehicle.
