There has been a recall on Mercedes-Benz V Class / Vito Vans sold nationally by authorised Mercedes-Benz Van Retailers between 1 June 2017 - 8 December 2017.
The recall notice on the ACCC Product Safety Australia website states that the ‘retaining rings of the wheel bearings on the front axle may not be correctly engaged and if so, these may drift.’
The notice states that ‘In the case of a fault the ABS sensoring fault will trigger a warning display in the cockpit and the driver may also be warned by noises from the service brake. If the indicated early warning signs are disregarded, wheel loss could be experienced therefore increasing the risk of an accident for the occupants and other road users.’
Consumers are asked to contact their nearest authorised Mercedes-Benz Van Retailer to arrange an inspection and rectification (if required).
