Mercedes-Benz "E" Class passenger car
What are the defects?
The electrical wiring harness for the front windshield wiper motor has not been routed correctly. Due to the movement of the windshield wiper linkage the electrical wiring harness may become damaged. As a consequence, the wiper motor may fail.
What are the hazards?
If the wipers fail, visibility would be impaired for the driver. In the event of adverse weather conditions this could increase the risk of an accident.
What should consumers do?
Letters will be sent to owners of affected vehicles and will be advised of what their next steps are in obtaining a repair. For further information or queries, contact Mercedes-Benz Australia on 03 9566 9266.
