Mercedes additionally notes that the clock spring within the steering column would have to be damaged for the airbag to deploy inadvertently. Nonetheless, if this piece breaks then there can be a warning message on the instrument cluster.

The automaker started investigating this concern in April 2015 after it acquired two subject reviews of inadvertent driver airbag deployment from outdoors america. A 3rd incident got here to the corporate’s consideration in late 2016, and additional analysis discovered two extra instances. Daimler created a process power to seek out the reason for the issue in January 2017. The corporate discovered the mix of electrostatic discharge and a damaged steering column clock spring as a possible trigger in June 2017. Subsequent assessments confirmed this speculation.

Mercedes will notify homeowners by mail. Sellers will then add enough grounding to the steering elements. The repairs will start in December 2017.

This recall is a part of a marketing campaign affecting over 1,000,000 autos worldwide, in accordance with Deutsche Welle. Along with the automobiles in america, there are 400,000 of them in want of restore in the UK and over 100,000 in Germany.
