CL C215 CL500 Problems, Faults and Recalls

  • R/2005/002 - Side Airbags May Deploy Inadvertently - Due to incorrect wiring there is a possibility that the side airbags could deploy without warning.
  • R/2005/056 - Brake Pedal May Require More Effort Than Expected - 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.
