SL R230 SL350 Facelift Problems, Faults and Recalls

  • R/2004/094 - Possibility Of Reduced Braking Efficiency - Premature wear of the Sensatronic Brake Control (SBC) unit may lead to a reduced braking efficiency
  • 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.
  • R/2005/134 - Brake Pedal May Require More Effort Than Expected - Problems may occur with the Sensotronic Brake Control (SBC) hydraulic unit that could affect the input required by the driver to stop the vehicle.
  • R/2008/152 - Driving Stability May Be Affected - It has been identified that during production or a repair faulty Active Body Control (ABC) acceleration sensors may have been fitted. This has the potential to cause vibrations at the front axle thus influencing the driving stability and operational safety.
