Recall Ref: R/2012/111
Exact Model: E Class
VIN: WDB2112081B021731 to WDB2112921B208600

Defect: On E Class vehicles without AIRMATIC from the above production period, blocking of the level sensor linkage may occur. In extremely rare cases, this may lead to breakage of the level sensor linkage. The linkage is used to measure the vehicle level via a sensor. If the linkage breaks, it is possible that the level sensor constantly records a vehicle level that is too low. This leads to a contact pressure rise in both air spring bellows, to hardening of the rear-axle suspension and to noticeable losses in comfort.
Action: Replace the level sensor linkage on these vehicles as a precautionary measure.
Launch Date: 16 November 2012
