Recall Ref: R/2005/056
Exact Model: E Class CLS and CL Class
Description: Brake pedal may require more effort than expected
Build Date:
Numbers: 58022
Defect: In isolated cases it is possible for vibrations within the vehicle to, in turn, vibrate the wiring harness connected to the Sensotronic brake control unit. This causes the internal contacts within the unit to suffer abrasion and subsequent resistance increase. The resultant affect is that more effort will be required on the brake pedal to stop the vehicle.
Action: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and mount an additional bracket to the electrical harness to prevent relative movement.

Defect: Power steering assistance may be lost due to an implausible signal occurring in the control unit.
