Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for its 2020 GLB due to an issue with the rear spoiler.

“The rear spoiler located above the tailgate may have been manufactured outside specifications. The upper shell of the rear spoiler may not have been welded or may have been welded incorrectly to the base… [and] may not be sufficiently connected to the base,” the company says in its recall notice.

“If the rear spoiler has been welded incorrectly, parts of the rear spoiler may detach while driving, increasing the risk of an accident and/or injury to other road users.”

  • A total of 348 vehicles are affected.
  • Affected vehicles were available for sale from 11 May 2020 to 31 July 2020.
  • The VIN list is attached here.
  • The original recall notice is attached here.

If you own an affected GLB, you should take it to your Mercedes-Benz dealer to be checked and repaired.
