Mercedes-Benz is recalling 31 examples of its previous-generation GLA due to an issue with the mounting nuts.

“The mounting nuts of the control unit box in the engine compartment may not meet the torque specification,” the company says in its recall notice.

“If these mounting nuts become loose, the control unit box may move, resulting in electrical connectors separating.

“If these connectors separate, it could result in the engine cutting out, as well as a failure of the power steering, ESP or the Active Brake Assist. This would increase the risk of an accident, causing death or injury to the the vehicle occupants and/or other road users.”

  • A total of 31 vehicles are affected.
  • Affected vehicles were available for sale from 1 July 2020 to 31 July 2020.
  • The VIN list is attached here.
  • The original recall notice is attached here.

If you own an affected GLA, contact your nearest Mercedes-Benz dealer to organise a free inspection and repair.
