Exclamation W211 Recalls!

I thought it best to list this info in one place for better referencing. I will update this thread if and when new campaigns are released (relevant to the E & CLS).

Make sure to call your dealer and ask them to check VMI to see if your vehicle is included. Have your VIN handy when you call.

Recall Bulletins

These are government mandated and are received by MBUSA from DCAG. These recalls are monitored for completion (by the dealer) and have to be completed in 2 weeks time. Recalls never expire. Customers are contacted (i.e.: letter), and vehicles are repaired as soon as possible.


Recall Campaign 2005070007 APR06
Inspect SBC hydraulic unit, replace as directed
E / SL (2004)

Recall Campaign 2005110001 APR06
Installation of ground wires and bracket to SBC wiring harness
E (2003-2006) / CLS (2006) / SL (2003-2005)

Recall Campaign 2004050014 OCT04
Programming SBC hydraulic unit
E / SL (2003-2005)

Service Campaigns

These are done on a voluntary basis by MBUSA, but are also monitored by the Government. Repairs are performed by dealer when vehicle is in for service work.


Service Campaign 2006020008 MAR06
Inspect transmission pilot bushing at electrohydraulic unit
M / SLK / C / CLK / E / CL / S / SL

Service Campaign 2006010006 FEB06
Replace remote trunk closing control unit
E (2003-2004)

Service Campaign 2005070017 FEB06
Inspect alternator, replace regulator if necessary
E / SL (2002-2005)

Service Campaign 2005060008 JAN06
Programming battery control module
E (2003-2006) / CLS

Service Campaign 2005100009 NOV05
Inspect rear SAM control module, replace if necessary
E (2003)

Service Campaign 2005070004 SEPT05
Replacement of spacer rings for fuel filler door lock
CLS

Service Campaign 2005060011 SEPT05
Direct mail distribution of navigation DVD for COMAND
SLK / E / CL / CLS / S / SL (2003-2006)

Service Campaign 2003020003 JUN03
Replace left front door control module
E

Service Campaign 2002090005 DEC02
Flexible Service System Plus (FSS+) maintenance intervals do not correspond to MBUSA criteria, as displayed in the instrument cluster
E

These campaigns are for the most part well known therefore I decided to not list the associated VIN range or repair details. Future posts will, of course, include the VIN range and details.

MBUSA documents however, given the safety ramification, Canada should have the same. Certainly I would reference these campaigns when calling your dealer.

thanks for the info. I just need to at least know that in case they starts to charge me for parts and craps like that. Man, we got some of the worst MB dealers here in NorCal.

This is great news Dan! Do you know if there is anything "official" in writing anywhere? Like on the MBUSA site? I'd like to print it out and keep it in the car file..

Mine went at 60K, and I paid for it out of pocket. Glad that my Dealer is processing the paperwork for my refund of the money I spent.

NZ Mercedes

Have just confirmed this month that any imported Mercedes vehicles (not sold NZ new) that have safety recalls will be coverd by NZ Mercedes dealers at no cost.

Lots of Japanese imports here with recalls not being even acknowledged up until now.

Guess they decided to face the problem before someone gets killed.

Better late than never.

Thanks for the info. Good place to put it - right at the top of the forum.

I was wondering if the following DTB falls under this sticky: (coolant leaking into transmission - Valeo radiators). This was also subject of one thread somewhere in this forum.

Order No P-B-27.55/50e March 6, 2006
Model Nos 203, 209, & 211.065/070/076/083/265/283
Up to production date 09/2003
Harsh Engagement Possibly Followed by Droning/Buzzing Noises During Light Acceleration Between Engine Speed of 1200-2500rpm.

Dan, if I didn't know better, I'd think you worked at MB or was a service advisor at a dealership! Thanks for the heads up!
