Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 120 model year 2020 GLE 350s and GLE 450s with an electrically adjustable second-row seat.
The wiring harness under the seat may become pinched during seat adjustment, possibly causing damage to the wires.
Damaged wires may cause the rear side airbags to not deploy as intended.
Additionally, the driver may not be warned if the second row right seat is not locked into place correctly after using the "Easy Entry" function.
Either of these can increase the risk of injury in a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and reroute the wiring harness as necessary, and repair any wire damage free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin June 20, 2020.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
