Mercedes-Benz Vans Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd — Mercedes-Benz VS20 VITO MY2015-2019
What are the defects?
Vehicles with an auxiliary battery installed under the front driver seat may not include a seat base cover, which may result in the seat base being used as a storage compartment, which is not its intended use.
What are the hazards?
If a conductive object is stored in the auxiliary battery compartment and connects the two battery terminals, this may cause a short circuit and potentially result in a fire, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants and bystanders.
What should consumers do?
Consumers are asked to immediately contact their most convenient Mercedes-Benz Retailer for a replacement retrofit cover, free of charge repair.
