Recall Alert : Mercedes-Benz 2015 C300 /C400

RECALL Subject : Headlamps/FMVSS 108

Report Receipt Date: FEB 11, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V087000
Component(s): EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 9,137


Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.

SUMMARY:
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2015 C300 and C400 vehicles manufactured from June 18, 2014, through September 5, 2014, that fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." The affected vehicles were assembled with horizontal adjustment mechanisms that allow the owner to change the horizontal adjustment used during the manufacturing process, instead of the proper sealing caps.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the original horizontal adjustment is used to alter the low beam aim, the misaimed headlamp may not properly illuminated the road or cause increased glare to oncoming drivers, which increases the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the horizontal adjustment mechanisms on the headlamps with sealing caps on the affected vehicles. The recall began May 23, 2016. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-800-367-6372.
