The bayonet lock may be open, causing fuel leak

Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 4,987 model year 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinters with diesel fuel systems.

The bayonet lock between the fuel pump and the fuel tank may not have been closed and locked during manufacturing, resulting in a possible leak between the fuel pump and the fuel tank.

In addition, a gas station fuel pump may not automatically stop once the tank fill level is reached, potentially causing the fuel to overflow.

What to do

DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the bayonet lock on the fuel pump, locking it as necessary, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2019.

Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3KRAFMOD.
