Replace airbag unit on steering wheel – Model: 205 - C-Class
Recall Campaign Number: 4692237
Daimler AG has determined that on certain Model 205 - C-Class, it is possible that a certain batch of driver airbag modules having a preproduction status were installed due to a deviation in the production process. It cannot be ruled out on these airbags that minor damage may occur to the air bag following elevated mileage due to chafing on the gas generator.
In the case of an accident, the restraint effect of the driver's airbag may as a result be impaired, this could increase the risk of injury for the driver.
As our top priority is the safety of our customers, Daimler AG, via its Mercedes-Benz service partners, the customer should make a booking with any approved Mercedes-Benz dealer and have the campaign carried out.
The campaign has been launched locally and affected customers are in the process of being contacted to inform them about the campaign. A total of 2 vehicles are affected in the South African market.
If there are any questions or queries with regards to this matter, please call the customer assistance centre on 0800 133 355 for assistance.
