Mercedes-Benz has recalled the C-Class and E-Class, over concerns about incorrectly-installed panelling on the exhaust system.

According to the company, the left cutout for the exhaust system isn't installed correctly, and could make contact with hot components. If it touches a hot exhaust component during 'full-load operation' could make the paneling catch fire.

A total of five units, sold during May 2018, are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

Mercedes-Benz will contact owners of the affected vehicles, and advise them to get in touch with their nearest dealership for a fix.
