Does this apply to a 2012 E550 cab? I am experiencing vibration under braking especially in freeway. Car has less than 8000 miles and 1y1mo old and the dealer is refusing warranty.

Bulletin documents only 212 however, EPC shows original front brake discs replaced for 207.473 (E550 Cabriolet):

Front part # 2214210812 replaced by 2044211212 – request service manager get MB rep covering dealership involved to approve replacement considering mileage and only one month out of 12 month/12,000 MB brake warranty https://mbworld.org/forums/2089508-post1.html

Yes they should. Matter of fact, if you have a 4MATIC, they should complete a 4 wheel alignment.

Water leak help

My 2012 W212 Vin A617810 leaks water into the foot well on the drivers side. Is there any TSB on this? Appreciate any info before I take it into the dealer.

I had a car once where water was leaking from the A/C into passenger floor due to poor assembly quality and design of drain location. Does it leak in rain? when washing car? Turn a hose on windshield and then on the area at base of windshield. Might help narrow it down.
Good luck!

Konigstiger:

With reference to Post #159 dated yesterday in this Forum: https://mbworld.org/forums/e-class-w212/446961-2012-e350-blown-motor-less-than-1000-miles-what-my-options-7.html

Are you aware of the TSB which the poster states his dealer informed him exists, necessitating a 2012 E350C engine rebuild due to bad wrist pins?

Sincere thanks, as always!

Yes. I had my front rotors replaced on my 550 cab for this very reason. HOWEVER the dealer was very specific that they did me a "favor" as a long-time customer as I had the service done just after one year and they would not do it over 12K miles or 12 months.

I would take it in ASAP if you're at 13 months now

konigstiger - two questions ...
1. '71 Pinto, really?! I had one of those until we dropped a V8 in the back and turned it into a dragster. It died an honorable death when a driver wrapped it up a few times too many ...
2. I see some Service Bulletins/TSB's/LI's that mention a specific model year (MY) and some that don't. How do I tell the differences between MY variances?

If bulletin references model year (MY), production range, and /or VIN range etc. coverage is of course limited. If not, bulletin should cover listed model(s) regardless of MY and VMI (vehicle master inquiry) confirms eligibility - i.e.: bulletin references modified part without MY, given production date VMI and/or EPC (electronic parts catalog) should confirm if part was already installed at production.

2012 E550 Sedan
Konigstiger, thank you for posting this info.

I dropped my car off (2012 E550 sedan) at the dealer a couple of days ago because of a vibration in the steering wheel while braking, along with a strange noise in the front which I thought was normal.

The tech could not find anything wrong. I then went online and found this forum and I think I found two service bulletins you posted that apply to my car.

LI42.10-P-0555595 FEB13 212.091 E550 4matic, grunting noise from front axle area during medium / hard braking (similar to allowing vehicle to creep slowly from a stationary position with brakes partially applied), replace front brake pads.

LI42.10-P-054524 SEPT12 212.072/090/272 front brake vibration. Thickness fault on brake disk replace pads and disks.

I emailed the dealer with the info and hopefully they end up replacing the brake pads and disks on my car. One question, when Mercedes issues a service bulletin and the dealer performs the repairs they are reimbursed by Mercedes for parts & labor, right?

Yes, if under warranty.

From my understanding, yes they get paid for the parts and labor but they have an internal labor rate that amounts to less than what a private mechanic would get paid. Maybe even 30% less than a private mechanic sometimes. This is why dealers are annoyed at doing warranty work. Can anyone chime in on this?

The dealer says the tech knew about the bulletins, but refuses to replace the pads or rotors under warranty because my car is 19,000 miles (warranty for pads & rotors is 12,000 miles) and doesn't feel the vibration is bad enough. They said if I want to replace the front pads and rotors it's close to $1,000. Very disappointed.

Which dealer is refusing to do the work? Get the word out via this forum, yelp, etc. to warn your fellow MB owners. A premium brand should take care of the owners of their cars. Thanks.
