Benz Recall

Mercedes-Benz issued a recall involving a number of 2015-2017 models (example: 2016 C350e) built between February 2014 to February 2017. In the event that the engine or transmission cannot turn over, the starting current limiter may overheat from repeated attempts, potentially melting surrounding components, increasing the risk of fire.

Arnott Inc. has introduced new rear shocks for the 2003-2012 Range Rover without VDS and 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the 2005-2011 CLS-Class models without ADS. 


Mercedes-Benz Clunk

2015 Mercedes-Benz C350 vehicles may exhibit a throttle lift-off clunking noise from the side shaft when moving off (audible at the outer end). The noise is heard once when changing direction of travel.


Benz Brake Clatter

This bulletin applies to 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL550 vehicles equipped with a 4.6L engine and code B07 ceramic composite brakes. A clattering noise may be heard from the front axle brakes on rough terrain/rough roads.


Leaky Benz

This bulletin applies to 2007-2008 Mercedes-Benz E320 models equipped with the 642 engine. If the lower oil pan appears to be leaking oil, check to see if the oil is coming from the drain holes that connect the V-chamber below the intake manifold.


Over-Filled Mercedes

On Mercedes-Benz vehicles equipped with an engine oil level sensor, the instrument cluster may indicate that the engine contains too much oil. This may indicate fuel contamination in the oil.


Normal Benz Operation

This bulletin applies to 2008 and later Mercedes-Benz C350 vehicles. If you receive customer reports that the COMMAND head unit display previously selected incline angle is not saved after the display is retracted then extended, this is a normal operation for vehicles which were produced November 2007 and later.


Honkin’ the Benz

2011 Mercedes-Benz C350 vehicles equipped with a 3.5L engine and electric power steering (ES) may hear a honking noise when steering to the limit stop.


Might not be the Torque Converter

This bulletin applies to 2011 Mercedes-Benz C300 vehicles. The customer may complain about a humming, droning, shuddering, jolting or slip.


Mercedes Changes Strut Bolt

This bulletin applies to 2011 Mercedes-Benz C300 models. The strut-to-suspension strut tower bolt design has been changed. The bolt has been modified because of the improvement measures to the strut to tower. The new bolt can be recognized by its larger collar diameter. A new coating on the bolt also means that the tightening torque is slightly lower.
