Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain “Sprinter” vehicles

21 December 2022

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain Sprinter vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby in certain vehicles of the Sprinter (907) series, a component of the parking lock system could wear unusually as a result of certain user behaviour, thus having a detrimental impact on the safe parking of the vehicle. If the vehicle is not secured in accordance with the instructions in the manual (including use of the immobilisation brake), it cannot be ruled out that it could start to roll out of the parking position. This could increase the risk of an accident. As a precaution, the Mercedes-Benz service organisation is to update the software of certain devices (including the ESP and the gearbox control unit) on the vehicles in question.

There are 520 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 19 December 2017 and 17 October 2022 to 2015.

A safety issue has been identified whereby on certain C-Class Sedan vehicles, a weld seam in the gearshift linkage does not meet the specifications. In this case, forces and vibrations occurring when driving could damage the gearshift linkage and the gearbox could sag. This could disconnect the gearbox from the drive shaft, causing the vehicle to lose propulsion. Furthermore, components could become detached from the vehicle. This could pose a danger to traffic behind and increase the risk of an accident.

There are 3 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 28 October 2021 to 15 March 2022.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain C-Class vehicles

6 October 2022

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain C-Class passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby on certain C-Class Sedan vehicles, water ingress into the trunk and therefore moisture might enter into the signal acquisition and actuation module can not be excluded. In this case, a short circuit might occur and a risk of fire cannot be excluded completely. Additionally, a short circuit might lead to various malfunctions. Among others, the exterior lighting on the rear of the vehicle might fail, the rear seat backrests might fold unintentionally and the rearview camera might not be available. Thus, the risk of a crash or injury would be increased and local legal requirements might not be met.

There are 246 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 12 October 2020 to 02 June 2022.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain E-Class, E-Class Coupé/Cabriolet, CLS and AMG GT 4-Türer Coupé vehicles

19 September 2022

A safety issue has been identified whereby the gearbox assembly has not been installed on the vehicles concerned in accordance with the specifications. As a result, the connector may develop a leak over time due to mechanical load. Standing water could lead to a gradual short circuit as soon as the vehicle is parked. The short circuit could lead to thermal overload of the plug over a longer period of time, whereby the risk of fire cannot be ruled out.

There are 26 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 16 November 2015 to 20 April 2022.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain EQE, EQS-Class vehicles

5 August 2022

As a result, the loosening of the screw connection cannot be ruled out, which could increase the risk of accident or injury.

There are 22 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 24 February 2021 to 01 March 2022.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain GLE-Class vehicles

25 July 2022

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain GLE-Class passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby for certain vehicles in the GLE series (BR 167) equipped with plug-in hybrid traction, the screw connection of a 12V wiring harness may have been secured with insufficient torque. In this case, the cable lug of the 12V cable might not be correctly attached. This could increase the electrical transition resistance at that connection. As a result, the strong electrical currents that may flow through the connection could cause an increase in temperature in the area concerned. In such a case the risk of fire cannot be completely ruled out.

There are 43 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 10 April 2019 to 11 November 2021.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain Vito, V-Class vehicles

19 July 2022

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain Vito, V-Class passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby on the affected vehicles, the controllable coolant pump may have a leak between the coolant and vacuum circuit via negative pressure. In this case, coolant may enter the vacuum circuit. If the electric switchover valves are exposed to coolant, a continuous increase in the component part temperature right up to a risk of fire cannot be ruled out completely over time in individual cases due to an electrochemical reaction. In addition, it cannot be ruled out that the brake booster may be damaged over time. In this case, the pedal forces required from the driver would be increased or the braking power would be reduced.

There are 88 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 16 January 2019 to 13 November 2021.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain EQE - Class vehicles

Depending on the extent of the damage, the steering power assistance could fail without prior warning. In addition, unmotivated steering assistance could not be completely ruled out at this point of time, which would eventually limit the steerability of the vehicle. Therefore, the risk of a crash would increase. Furthermore, due to potentially increased steering forces, local legal requirements might not be met.

There are 3 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 11 January 2022 to 09 May 2022.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain Mercedes-Benz C-180 A/T vehicles

6 July 2022

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain Mercedes-Benz C-180 A/T passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby vehicles with spark-ignition engine, a particle in the fuel rail may cause a leak between the fuel rail and fuel injector. An enclosed particle may damage the sealing package between the fuel rail and fuel injector, and this leak may lead to fuel leakage in the engine compartment. As a result, leaking fuel may come into contact with hot parts of the engine. A risk of fire can thus not be ruled out.

There is 1 vehicle affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced in 2019.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain “Sprinter” vehicles

6 July 2022

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain Sprinter vehicles.

Increased internal pressure due to a chemical change in the active substance can cause the gas generator to burst in the event of an accident with the airbags unfolding. Under these circumstances, the airbag will not develop the restrictive effect and passengers would be at risk of injury due to the release of parts from the gas generator.

There are 5365 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 2006 to 2015.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain GL, ML, R-Class vehicles

3 June 2022

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain GL, ML, R-Class passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby after extended time in the field and in conjunction with significant water exposure, this corrosion might lead to a leakage of the brake booster. In this case, the brake force support might be reduced, leading to an increase in the brake pedal forces required to decelerate the vehicle and/or to potentially increased stopping distance. Additionally, in rare cases of very severe corrosion, it might be possible for a particularly strong or hard braking manoeuvre to cause a mechanical damage in the brake booster, whereby the connection between brake pedal and brake system would fail. In such a very rare case, it would not be possible to decelerate the vehicle via the service brake. Thus, the risk of a crash or injury would be increased.

There are 1344 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 14 January 2004 to 31 August 2015.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain C-Class vehicles

11 May 2022

In addition, local legal requirements would not be met.

There are 13 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 1 October 2021 to 30 November 2021.

 

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain “Sprinter” vehicles

7 April 2022

A safety issue has been identified whereby on certain Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vehicles in the 907 series, the wiring harness of the generator may have been erroneously swapped with the wiring harness of the electric steering in the course of assembly. If this is the case, the steering wiring harness would be secured with the generator fuse (fused too high), and the generator wiring harness with the steering fuse (fused too low). In the event of an additional electrical fault (e.g. damage to the steering wiring harness), the mix-up of the two differently fused wiring harnesses could lead to the steering wiring harness becoming overloaded. A fire cannot be ruled out.

A safety issue has been identified whereby Mercedes-Benz AG has determined that in certain S-Class (223 platform) vehicles, the airbag control unit might not have been bolted according to specifications. If this is the case, the airbag control unit might detect incorrect acceleration values when the vehicle is being driven. As a result, the unintended deployment of the restraint systems in the vehicle cannot be ruled out completely. Furthermore, in the event of a crash, incorrect acceleration values might be detected. In consequence, the restraint systems might not be activated as specified. Depending on the scenario, the risk of a crash or injury would be increased. In addition, local legal requirements might not be met.

A safety issue has been identified whereby the connection of the power supply to the electrical power steering may have been contaminated by heat-activated adhesive. In this case, ageing of the adhesive could lead to a loss of clamping force and thus to a loose connection over time, and in turn a possible interruption of the power supply. As a result, the electrical power steering could fail spontaneously, even while the vehicle is in motion. This could increase the risk of accidents.

Toyota Ireland recalls certain BZ4X passenger vehicles

21 December 2022

Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain BZ4X passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified with the affected vehicles whereby certain hub bolts had characteristics that could cause them to loosen under certain conditions of vehicle use. This could result in all the hub bolts on a wheel to loosen to the point where they can detach. If a wheel detaches from the vehicle while driving, it could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Toyota Ireland recalls certain Avensis vehicles

28 November 2022

Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain Avensis vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby the affected vehicles are equipped with a driver’s front air bag with a dual stage inflator. There is a possibility that the density of the propellant in the inflator could be reduced over time from the effects of high temperature cycling and moisture within the propellant and its sealed container.  This may cause the propellant to become powdery.  If this were to occur, the inflator could rupture in the event of the deployment of the driver’s front air bag.  An inflator rupture may cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag and into the vehicle interior at high speed, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.

There are 25,034 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 24 April 2006 to 21 August 2022.

Toyota Ireland recalls certain Aygo X passenger vehicles

6 October 2022

Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain Aygo X passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified that certain vehicles equipped with Curtain Shield Airbags (CSAs) within the roof rails that extend from the front to the rear of the passenger compartment on each side of the vehicle. Each CSA incorporates a strap that is enclosed in the front pillar of the vehicle and is surrounded by a plastic cover. The strap supports the proper deployment of the portion of the CSA located in the front of the occupant compartment.

There is a possibility that these straps may not have been routed in the correct orientation. If a strap was not oriented correctly during vehicle manufacturing, in the event that the CSAs were commanded to be deployed, the strap could affect the proper deployment of the front portion of the CSAs. Further, if the CSAs did not deploy properly, it could cause the upper portion of the plastic covers to separate from the front pillars more than intended, leading to a noncompliance with certain safety requirements. These conditions can increase the risk of injury to the vehicle occupants in the event of a crash.

There are 59 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 6 March 2022 to 5 April 2022.

Toyota Ireland recalls certain CHR, Yaris and GR Yaris passenger vehicles

24 February 2022

Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain CHR, Yaris and GR Yaris passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified with the affected vehicles which are equipped with a radar sensor and a camera to detect objects, such as another vehicle, in front of the subject vehicle. These sensors support certain driver assistance features, including the Pre-Collision System (PCS). Under certain circumstances, the initialization of the radar sensor may not have been completed correctly at the vehicle assembly plant. If this occurs, the radar sensor would not be activated. In this condition, the PCS would not be able to detect a vehicle in front of the subject vehicle and would not provide warnings or braking assist, as designed, in certain driving situations that would otherwise result in a PCS activation. In addition, the vehicle would not display a message or indicator to the driver that PCS is not functional. An inoperative PCS, without a PCS malfunction indicator to the driver, may increase the risk of a crash in certain driving situations.

There are 5123 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 20 March 2020 to 21 June 2021.
