Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 888 model year 2016 GLC 300s manufactured June 16, 2015, to November 3, 2015, and 2016 GLC 300 4Matics manufactured July 16, 2015, to November 3, 2015.
The steering columns in the affected vehicles may have the wiring harness for the switch module incorrectly routed.
As a result, the harness may chafe and the air bag may unexpectedly deploy or the engine may stall increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the wiring harnesses, properly rerouting them as necessary. Any damaged harnesses will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2016.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
