Recall - Replace Fuel Filter

Campaign No.2013020002, *April* 2013

Revision

Replace Fuel Filter

Daimler AG (DAG), the manufacturer of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, has determined that due to issues during the injection molding process of a

sub-supplier, the structure of affected fuel filter flanges might contain an irregularity. During a specific period of sub-supplier production there were

issues with the injection molding process that impaired the flow of material in the mold, which could result in reduced thickness or strength of the

flange in certain areas. The flange is situated on top of the fuel filter and is used to connect the fuel filter to the fuel tank. In most cases, fuel cannot

leak through this structural irregularity in the flange. However, in some cases the operating pressure (7 bar) along with high operating temperatures

could over time lead to the development of a crack in the flange, which may result in fuel leakage and/or loss of fuel system pressure and flow.

MBUSA therefore has initiated a voluntary recall of all potentially affected vehicles described above. The recall will be conducted to replace the fuel

filter in the subject vehicle.

A sample copy of a letter which owners of the affected vehicles will receive is included.

Prior to performing this Recall Campaign:

^ Please check VMI to determine if the vehicle is involved in the Campaign and if it has been previously repaired.

^ Please review the entire Recall Campaign bulletin and follow the repair procedure exactly as described.

Please note that Recall and Service Campaigns do not expire and may also be performed on a vehicle with a vehicle status indicator.
