Mercedes-Benz Australia is recalling 13 examples of its A-Class, C-Class, GLE, and GLC models, as well as the Mercedes-AMG GT, due to a manufacturing defect that may cause a fuel leak.

This recall affects models A-Class, C-Class, GLE, GLC and AMG-GT models sold between 2019 and 2020.

“Due to a manufacturing defect particles may have been trapped between the fuel rail and injectors damaging the seal causing a fuel leak into the engine compartment,” says the company in its recall notice.

“Leaked fuel may result in a fire if it makes contact with a hot surface in the engine. This could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.”

If you own an affected vehicle you’ll need to contact your nearest authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer to schedule in an appointment for a free repair.

If you have any further questions, you can call the Mercedes-Benz customer assistance centre on 1300 300 896.
