Check adjusting nut of parking brake, replace if necessary
Daimler AG has determined that the travel of the hand brake lever of your vehicle may gradually lengthen by way of actuation due to a loosening lock nut of the hand brake cable. If the travel of the hand brake lever lengthens, it may be possible that the parking brake does not exert the force required to sufficiently secure the vehicle in all situations.
Subsequently, the vehicle could start to move unintentionally on a downward slope in the event of a fault. This could increase the risk of an accident occurring.
As our top priority is the safety of our customers, Daimler AG, via its Mercedes-Benz service partners, check the adjusting nut of the parking brake on your vehicle as a precautionary measure and replace it if necessary. This will be done free of charge and the required work for this will take approx. 0.5 hours.
The campaign has been launched locally and customers are in the process of being contacted to inform them if their vehicles are affected. A total of 5 vehicles are affected in the South African market.
