Wiring loom issue forces more than 70 vans to be recalled.

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2017 V-Class, over concerns about the front-seat wiring loom fasteners.

According to the company, the swivelling function on the front seats could make the wiring loom come loose. If the loom comes loose, it could make the side airbags randomly activate.

The red SRS light on the dashboard will illuminate, and the airbags might not inflate in an accident, increasing the risk of injury to occupants.

A total of 77 vans are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Mercedes-Benz is asking affected owners to contact their nearest dealership to organise an inspection and, if required, a fix.
