Daimler has determined that certain 2017 Mercedes Benz Metris vans may have been manufactured with front axle bearing retaining rings that were not seated correctly. The retaining rings could extend from the steering knuckles allowing the wheel bearing to move out of position. The problem could result in an ABS sensing error warning on the instrument panel, unfamiliar brake noises, unpredictable drive-ability and the loss of a wheel.
Those receiving notices will be asked to return to their dealers to have the front axle wheel bearing retaining rings inspected and correctly positioned as necessary. Owners wanting more information about the defect can contact Daimler customer service at 1-877-762-8267.
