Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 11,013 model year 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter vans (platform 970 (VS30)), with swivel seats.
The wiring harnesses for the front seats may have been routed incorrectly and could become jammed and damaged in the swivel seat frames.
If the wiring harness is damaged, the side airbag within the seat may deploy inadvertently or not deploy as designed in a crash, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.
What to do
DVUSA will notify owners, and an authorized Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner Sprinter dealer will inspect the wire harness routing for both front seats and will repair the wiring and add clips or cable ties as needed free of charge.
This recall is expected to begin July 17, 2020.
Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3DREHSIK.
