As reported by Chinese media, Recently, Mercedes-Benz (China) Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. and Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. issued the “Regulations on the Management of Defective Automobile Products Recall” and the “Implementation Measures for the Management of Defective Automobile Product Recalls” to the Nation Administration of Markets. The recall plan was filed.

When the front shock absorber of the vehicle is subjected to a large external impact during this recall, the shock absorber may be damaged and the damper’s fork head may be deformed and bent, or even the lower control arm bushing may be dislodged. In extreme cases, vibration may be caused. The fork is broken and there is a safety hazard. Mercedes-Benz (China) Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. and Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. will replace the improved front shock absorbers or reinforcement components for the recalled vehicles to eliminate safety hazards.
The recall was carried out under the circumstances of the start of the defect investigation by the National Administration of Market Supervision. For some time, the Defective Product Management Center of the State Administration of Markets has received defects from consumers who have reflected this problem. After receiving the defect clues, the State Administration of Markets immediately organized the defect investigation and evaluation. After investigation, the National Administration of Market Supervision notified the producers to implement the recall. Mercedes-Benz (China) Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. and Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. decided to take recall measures to eliminate potential safety hazards.
The maintenance measures given by Beijing Mercedes for these recall vehicles are as follows: E-class vehicles with potential hazards will be equipped with reinforced components to increase the chassis robustness. The air suspension shock absorber strut assembly is to improve the lower control arm bushing and the upper gasket of the shock absorber suspension spring. Improved buffer block. At the same time, replace the front shock absorber of the original thickness 4mm fork with a front shock absorber with a thickness of 5mm.
In fact, for shock absorbers strut and their repair accessories, people always has a common misunderstanding, and think that Mercedes-Benz original parts are the best. actually not. Even if Mercedes’ assembly process is the best, we also look at the quality control system of air suspension parts suppliers and the performance of the suspension spring parts such as shock core, rubber sleeve bladder, dust cover boot, rubber buffer, crimping rings, aluminum cover can and aluminum piston, air valve, bushing mount, metal head, o-ring seals, other repair kits and so on. If the shock absorber sturt repair parts supplier does not have so many ads on internet and not famous enough , but their parts are very excellent. Why don’t we choose it?
