The recall notice advises that the swivelling of the front seats may cause the wiring loom fasteners to detach under the seat.

What are the hazards?

This may cause the wiring loom under the seat to detach.

If the wiring loom is damaged there is a risk of unintentional inflation of the side airbag.

The red SRS light will illuminate and in the case of an accident the airbags will not inflate, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

What should owners of affected vehicles do?

Consumers should contact their nearest Mercedes-Benz Vans dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle.
