Mercedes recalls 2015 GLE models for wiper problem

There is yet another car recall in the UK, and this time it is the 2015 Mercedes GLE and GLE Coupe models because of a possible wiper problem.

Mercedes recalls 2015 GLE models for wiper problem

Mercedes-Benz is recalling 1,530 of these models that were built from 09/02/2015 to 14/10/2015, which has the manufacturer reference SRPC1517.

Reason for the recall – There is a chance that the cabling might not have been routed correctly, and so the wiper linkage could chafe, and so increasing the risk that it could cause a short circuit.

If this were to happen, then the wiper motor could stop working. Affected models will have this cabling checked by Mercedes, and if required either reworked or replaced. Visit our dedicated Mercedes page if you have any other problems.
