B Class T246 B160 CDI Problems, Faults and Recalls

  • R/2012/063 - Transmission May Not Operate Correctly - A frictional connection (clutch within the gearbox) may go out of tolerance and produce a chattering noise. This will be followed by a warning message appearing in the instrument cluster and symptoms similar to a slipping clutch.
  • R/2013/069 - Rear Back-rest May Fail - It is possible that vehicles fitted with the Easy Vario seat system may have a seat back-rest lock that is not to specification. This could in the event of extreme loading (a rear end collision) result in the lock failing and the seat back-rest folding forward possibly causing injury to the occupant.
  • R/2014/182 - Oil May Leak - On certain diesel engines the 'O' ring may not have been produced to the correct specification. This may allow oil to leak and contaminate the environment. If excessive oil is lost engine damage may occur.
  • R/2015/099 - Possibility Of Loss Of Drive - The drive shaft and the hub of the outer joint may separate. In very rare cases it cannot be excluded that the vehicle stops. The steering and braking system remain fully available to the driver.
  • R/2015/145 - Front Passenger Airbag May Not Deploy - Certain fuses in the passenger's footwell may not have been fitted correctly. This may adversely affect the instrument cluster windscreen wipers and the passenger seat occupancy recognition system. In certain conditions this may cause the passenger's air bag not to deploy in an accident.
  • R/2015/231 - Vehicle May Cut Out - In rare cases the propulsion control unit may send an incorrect message. This may cause the electric power train to shut down. Power can be restored by the normal start sequence.
  • R/2016/091 - Rear Bench Seat May Lift Up From The Rear In A Collision & Attached Seat Belts May Not Be Anchored Correctly - On 'B' Class models fitted with 'Easy Vario' rear seat option a bolt securing the seat bench to the body may have been omitted during production. This may allow the seat bench to lift during a frontal collision. Seat belt effectiveness may also be compromised.
  • R/2016/151 - Risk Of Fire - A threaded connection in the Prefuse box may not be tightened to the correct specification. This may excessive resistance and create a heat source. This could cause a fire. Additionally vibration may cause power disruption which could affect the operation of steering power assistance ABS SRS and/or instrument failure..
