What’s the Problem?
This recall affects 2020 Mercedes GLE 350 and GLE 450 vehicles equipped with an electrically adjustable second-row seat, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The wiring harness under the seat may become pinched during seat adjustment, possibly causing damage to the wires, NHTSA said. Damaged wires may cause the rear side airbags to not deploy as intended.
Additionally, the driver may not be warned if the second row right seat is not locked into place correctly after using the “Easy Entry” function. Either of these scenarios increase the risk of injury during a crash.
Mercedes-Benz is notifying owners and dealers will inspect and reroute the wiring harness, free of charge. This recall began June 20, 2020.
