The problem in the affected vehicles is that a rubber seal at the back of the engine bay may temporarily stick to the hood when it is opened and then may fall into the engine bay when the hood is closed. If the rubber seal falls into the engine compartment, the risk of a fire may increase.

The automaker will start notifying owners about the Mercedes-Benz recall starting in mid-March, 2015. The dealers will inspect the vehicles and will attach four additional retaining clips to the rubber seal. Repairs will be carried out free of charge. Owners with questions can contact the manufacturer at 800-367-6372 for more information.
