Mine is a 14. So your dealership specifically said they have no update on the 15 for the surround view camera till August? Interesting. So you currently a really dark looking image at night, yes?

Yes, it seemed to be more of a software issue. You know how on a camera you can adjust things like exposure and aperture to get more like light at night? Similar concept - I guess they hadn't properly tuned up the surround view to compensate for low light situations.

I have an appointment for 9:00 AM tomorrow morning for this software update. The service guy had not even heard about it, but I gave him the code. Thanks again to Klonigstiger and you for the updates. Do you know how long it takes for this job? I'll let you know how it works out.

Took my 2014 S550 to the dealer today for the update. They performed it, and now there is NO video from any camera. They are at a loss on how to fix it, and gave me a loaner car while they sort it out.

Steve, that's really strange! The dealer in FL where TomS took his vehicle this morning for the update also messed his up. I don't get it. Mine works flawlessly. The local dealer in Des Moines performed the update about 10 days ago.

How to decode?

Firstly, thanks for this thread. It's great.

But I have a newbie question. How do I decide if the changes apply to my vehicle. For example, how do I decode

"LI09.10-P-059184 JUN14 – 222.177/178 up to VIN A023218 engine has no output, right air intake is loose in area of radiator shroud."

If last 7 characters of 222.177 (S63) / 222.178 (S63 4-matic) VIN are A023218 or below bulletin applies.

Sorry, I didn't make myself clear.
I was asking for the code structure. Now I know that a .177 is an S63 and that a .178 is an S63 4 matic. What are the other codes? (I have an S550 4 matic, but all of them would help).

Similarly, for the numbers to the left of the decimal, I know I have an 222, what's a 217?

One more question...the Service Campaigns don't list which vehicles are covered. Does that mean that those owners will be contacted?

Thanks again.

S550 4matic 222.185; 216 = CL, 217 = S coupe.

Service Campaigns are normally performed at next workshop visit. For whatever reason MB has not included VIN range on SC for a while. Customer can either call ahead to have Service Attendant (SA) check Vehicle Master Inquiry (VMI) to confirm SC applies, or join MBUSA Owners Online https://www.mbusa.com/mercedes/owners/owners_online you should receive an email notice if SC is applicable to your VIN.

Consider subscribing (free) to MBUSA Electronic Parts Catalog (EPC) http://www.startekinfo.com/StarTek/ here you will see all model designations and can pull part info for your vehicle.

Nah, civilian like you. Circumstances dictated relocation from Brooklyn in 92, seen a lot of changes certainly not happy with the growth but that aside and with the exception of the drivers wonderful place to live.

Trunk Bulletin

I recently had the problem with the trunk not opening fully and also not closing and locking. The trunk would not lock when closing , it would just pop open again. After several attempts I was able to get it locked. This happened 3 times before I took to dealer for repair. I used the info in the related bulletin to help the dealer get the correct repair. Thanks to man who keeps us up to date on Bulletins.

Is there a VIN range for the remote trunk locking LI? Mine seems to open to the halfway point as if the setting for limited trunk height were selected in COMAND even though I never selected it.

W222 S320 (Chinese Model)
I am a new owner of BENZ S320 in China, BENZ sale M276 delta30 engine (3.0T V6) here as BENZ S320/S400 w222 model. We have no such a bulletin system in China. Your post is absolutely useful for Chinese BENZ S Class owner. My question is your post bulletin information only apply to MBUSA model or all BENZ S W222? Is there any service Campaign can only apply to S320/S400 (my S320 vin code is like this WDDUG6CB9FA + 6digital) and could you also post here if any.
In China, lots of S class owner (>20) found there is a cricket/ticking noise coming from the engine, the problem is the noise is not only hearing from out side the car, but also can be heard in the car when quiet, e.g. speed below 40KM/H. Local dealer said it is high pressure pump sound, and cannot be solved. Any idea about this issue?

Bulletins, service campaigns, etc. are released by Daimler AG and ultimately apply to all markets. Local dealer may disagree however, all bulletins can be retrieved through MB Xentry. To my knowledge, nothing released for your concern to date.
