Mercedes-Benz Australia is recalling 6117 examples of the X-Class ute to fix an issue that may cause the rear axle radial shaft ring to be inadequately sealed, resulting in a potential oil leak.
This recall affects X-Class models produced between 2017 and 2019.
“Due to a manufacturing defect, the rear axle radial shaft ring may not be sealed adequately,” said the company in its recall notice.
