Replace Fuel Line – 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350

NHTSA

15V792

SUMMARY:

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2014 E350 and E350 4Matic sedans manufactured June 4, 2014, to July 9, 2014.

The affected vehicles were built with a fuel feed line that has a single flare fitting instead of a double flare fitting.

 

CONSEQUENCE:

If the fuel feed line has the incorrect flare fitting, the connection between the fuel hose and the fuel feed line might develop a leak or may completely disconnect.

Leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire and if the fuel feed line disconnects, the vehicle would stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

 

REMEDY:

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will install the correct fuel line, free of charge.

This recall began on January 11, 2016.

Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

 

NOTES:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
