Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for previous-generation versions of its C-Class, CLK, CLS, and E-Class lines over concerns vehicles fitted with sunroofs could have their glass panels detach.

“The durability of the bonding between the sunroof glass panel and the sliding roof frame on some vehicles might not meet specifications and the glass panel may separate from the vehicle,” Mercedes-Benz says in its recall notice.

“If the glass panel separates from the vehicle, there is a risk of an accident resulting in injury or death of other road users.”

  • A total of 30,105 vehicles are affected by this recall
