In the worst case, wear of the brake booster can lead to a breakdown in the connection between the brake pedal and the brake system. “As a result, the service brakes failed,” the German Federal Motor Transport Authority reported.
On Saturday, the on-demand manufacturer in Stuttgart said the brake booster in the affected cars was no longer working properly due to wear on the housing joints – and this has led to a review of individual cases.
Under certain conditions, wear can lead to brake booster leakage and brake booster leakage. “As a result, the actuation forces on the brake pedal required to slow the car will increase and the braking distance may increase. This may be accompanied by a perceptible hiss or a flowing noise when the brakes are applied.”
Increased risk of accidents and injuries
Mercedes has confirmed the information provided by the office, according to which, in extreme cases, it may not be possible to brake the car using the service brake. “This would increase the risk of accidents or injuries,” a spokesman said.
Mercedes-Benz will start checking cars immediately. “Until the test date, we ask you not to use the vehicle anymore.” If necessary, the manufacturer will provide solutions to the owners. In mid-May, Mercedes-Benz announced a recall in the USA for brake problems on good 292,000ml, GL and R cars from the 2006 to 2012 model years.
