    Hello all,

    In the UK I believe that we experienced the same problems as German users and owners of the A Class. Apparently on the early models the rear trailing arm worn far to early, it was accepted by Mercedes Benz that this was actually a vehicle fault and apparently A Class owners had to take their cars back to the place of purchase, namely, their dealerships. However it appears that some A Class in the UK are still suffering from this fault. One owner has reported that their local dealership will replace the parts and the owner will have to pay taking into consideration the age, mileage etc around 60% 30% of the cost.

    Could you please respond....


    1/ Do you think that the A Class owner should pay anything?

    2/ Does anyone know of the exact parts that are replaced during this process - is there anything the owner should be aware of, any additional costs or parts for example bushes, radius arm assembly etc ?

    3/ Has anyone else had any similar experience with any kind of fault?

    Thank you in advance.

    Peter East.

    Hello,
    a lot of a class drivers have exactly the problem you mentioned.
    Last week my car was repaired.
    But I have to pay 50% - this is about 220€.
    But my car already has 90000 km.
    Some other guys in this forum didn't have to pay anything for this repair - but they all had less km.
    The problem is that water gets inside the ball bearings.
    After the repair you can feel that the car runs much more stabil.
    They install a new version of bearing which hopefully lasts longer.
    If you need the part numbers I could send you a copy of my receipt.
    It is more than 5 hours work to repair this !!

    Best regards

    Hi Roland,

    Thank you for replying to my post.

    This is very interesting...

    Could you please email me the part numbers, you’re receipt would also be very much appreciated. My email address [email protected]

    Have Daimler Chrysler / Mercedes Benz released an official press release on this matter? It would seam serous enough. Perhaps dealership are ignoring their responsibility in that they are appointed by Daimler Chrysler / Mercedes Benz as their agent!

    Kind regards,

    Pete.
