Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for the 2014-15 and 2018-19 C-Class models over concerns the steering could lock.

The manufacturer says the steering system in affected vehicles may have lock nuts "with possible production deviations", which could break.

If the condition occurs, the steering could lock, posing a hazard to the driver and increasing the risk of an accident.

There are 5 units affected for the MY14-15 recall, sold from 1 August 2014 through 23 December 2015 – VIN list here.

Meanwhile, there's 879 vehicles included in the MY18-19 recall, sold from 1 March 2018 through 30 August 2019 – VIN list here.

Owners of the affected C-Class models are advised to contact their local Mercedes-Benz dealer to have their vehicle repaired, free of charge.
