MBUSA will contact owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the diesel fuel filter if necessary, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during November 2011.  11V-496

MARCH 2009 --  Mercedes-Benz is recalling 54 MY 2009 S-Class, W221 vehicles. During production the front and rear passenger side door locks may have been mistakenly interchanged during production. The exchange of afront and a rear passenger side door lock would result in a passenger side door that cannot be opened bymerely pulling on the interior handle and a rear door lock that can be opened with a simple pull of the interior door handle even if locked. This situation could affect the safe exiting of a vehicle in the event of a crash or protection of children from inadvertent opening of the rear door. Dealers will check the part number on all door locks and replace any incorrectly installed door lock free of charge. The recall began on March 27, 2009. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.   09V-081

NOVEMBER 2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling 1,515 MY 2007 S-Class vehicles. The radial knuckle of the front strut may fail. The radial knuckle flaw may occur after significant mileage accumulation combined with exposure to high continuous stress by driving on rough roads. If a radial knuckle fails, the steering control of the vehicle may be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will check the front strut for the production date. If the front strut falls in the affected production range, the struts will be replaced. The recall is expected to begin during December 2008.  08V608

AUGUST 2008 -- Mercedes Benz is recalling 4,564 MY 2001-2006 CL-Class (Model 215), MY 2002-2006 S-Class (Model 220), MY 2003-2007 SL-Class (Model 230), MY 2007-2008 CL-Class (Model 216), and MY 2007 S-Class (Model 221) passenger vehicles equipped with Active Body Control (ABC) acceleration sensors on the front struts. These sensors measure acceleration around the Z-axis of the vehicle and assure an automatic adaptation of the front struts to maintain a relatively level body position. Variations in the soldering process resulted in soldering points on the board of the ABC sensors which may not be within design tolerances. Signals from the affected sensors measuring the acceleration may not be accurately transmitted to the engine control unit. A variation in the transmitted values between affected and unaffected sensors can result in one front strut adjusting to a value indicating body movement while another strut does not adjust presenting the driver with an uneven front suspension. This condition may lead to unexpected body movements at the front axle which can adversely influence the vehicle's directional stability and could lead to a vehicle crash. Dealers will inspect and replace, if necessary, the front ABC sensors in all potentially affected vehicles. The recall is expected to begin during September 2008.  08V405

JULY 2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling 404 MY 2006-2008 M-Class, R-Class, MY 2005-2009 SLK-Class, MY 2005-2008 C-Class, MY 2003-2004 and 2006-2008 CLK-Class, MY 2003-2008 E-Class, MY 2004 and 2008 CL-Class, MY 2008 CLS-Class, MY 2004 and 2007-2008 S-Class, MY 2003 G-Class, and MY 2003-2004, 2006 and 2009 SL-Class vehicles. A software calibration number (SCN) coding received on the affected vehicles during a recent workshop visit was incorrect. Depending on the model year and model affected, the results of an incorrect SCN coding can affect a number of vehicle safety and emission functions including the following types of functions: (1) the fuel gauge readings may be incorrect; (2) a stuck fuel-level sensor may not be displayed in the instrument cluster; (3) the OBD system may cause the check engine light to illuminate incorrectly; and, (4) the speedometer may be out of tolerance. In the event of a vehicle crash, the electrical fuel pump may not receive a crash signal that is required for the fuel pump to disconnect and prevent future fuel delivery as designed. Dealers will recode the SCN. The recall is expected to begin during August 2008.  08V303

MARCH 2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling 3,283 MY 2008 S-Class and CL-Class passenger vehicles. A malfunction may occur on the Signal Acquisition and Actuation Module-Front (SAM-F) transistors. The SAM-F is a double transistor that helps control vehicle functions and the lighting of the center console. Incorrect storage of the transistors led the transistors to be exposed to excess humidity. The presence of this moisture in combination with the thermal stress during the "reflow soldering" may have damaged the transistors while could prevent them from properly functioning increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace all potentially affected SAMs. The recall is expected to begin during May 2008. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372. 08V122
