Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 3,620 model year 2016 GLE300d 4Matic, GLE400 4Matic, GLE350 4Matic, GLE63 AMG, GLE63 AMG Coupe, GLE63S AMG and GLE63S AMG Coupe, and 2017 GLS450 4Matic, GLE550 4Matic, and GLE63 AMG 4Matic vehicles. This Mercedes Benz recall is due to these vehicles having excess bulkhead insulation extending into the lower windshield area, possibly affecting the windshield bonding and the deployment of the passenger’s front airbag in the event of a crash.
As a result, the front seat passenger would have an increased risk of injury.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will remove any excess bulkhead insulation and rework the windshield bonding, as necessary, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in December 2017.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-877-496-3691.
