Maintenance

General notes

../../../../global/pictures_mb/symb_baum.png

Environmental note

Observe measures to protect the environment when working on the vehicle. You must observe the legal requirements when disposing of service products, e.g. engine oil. This also includes all components, e.g. filters, which have come into contact with service products. Any qualified specialist workshop can provide information about this.

Dispose of empty containers, cleaning cloths and care products in an environmentally-responsible manner. Comply with the instructions for use of the care products.

Do not run the engine for longer than necessary when the vehicle is stationary.

Before carrying out maintenance measures and repairs, you must read the following documents relating to maintenance measures and repairs:

  • relevant sections of the technical documentation such as the operating instructions and workshop information

  • legal stipulations such as work safety regulations and accident prevention regulations

When carrying out work underneath the vehicle, you must secure the vehicle using stands with sufficient load-bearing capacity.

Never use the vehicle jack instead of stands. The vehicle's jack is intended only to raise the vehicle for a short time when changing a wheel. It is not suited for performing maintenance work under the vehicle.

Please also refer to the notes about qualified specialist workshops more.

The scope and regularity of the inspection and maintenance work primarily depend on the often diverse operating conditions. Specialist knowledge beyond the scope of these Operating Instructions is required when carrying out testing and maintenance work. This work should only be carried out by trained personnel.

The vehicle Maintenance Booklet describes the scope and frequency of maintenance work and contains additional notes on the implied warranty. You will find information about service products approved by Mercedes-Benz and capacities in the "Technical data" section more.

Maintenance services must be carried out in accordance with the provisions and recommendations in the Maintenance Booklet.

Not doing so could void any warranty claims and lead to refusal of goodwill gestures after the manufacturer has submitted a damage report.

Observe the information on Mercedes-Benz original parts in the "Technical data" section more.

Service interval display

General notes

A service that is due is displayed in the service interval display about 1 month or 3000 km in advance. A message is then displayed while the vehicle is in motion or when the ignition is switched on.

The service interval display does not provide information about the oil level. The service interval display should therefore not be confused with the mbsymb1b_inv_0035.png engine oil level display.

The service date is displayed in days or kilometres depending on distance travelled.

Icons or letters on the service display show the scope of the next service due.

  • mbsymb3_inv_00af.png Service A in ... days

  • mbsymb3_inv_00af.png Service A in ... km

  • mbsymb3_inv_00af.png Service A due now

Vehicles without steering wheel buttons: the following messages may be displayed.

  • mbsymb3_inv_00af.png for service A

  • mbsymb3_inv_00b0.png for Service B

Additionally, you will see the remaining distance in kilometres (km) or the remaining time in days (d).

Service due date exceeded

Vehicles with steering wheel buttons: if you have missed the service due date, one of the following messages appears in the display and warning tone also sounds.

  • mbsymb3_inv_00af.png Service A overdue by ... days

  • mbsymb3_inv_00af.png Service A overdue by ... km

Vehicles without steering wheel buttons: if you have missed the service due date, the mbsymb3_inv_00af.png or mbsymb3_inv_00b0.png symbol for the service flashes for 10 seconds after the ignition is switched on. You will also see a minus sign before the service due date.

Calling up the service due date

Turn the key to position 2 in the ignition lock.

The display is activated.

Vehicles without steering wheel buttons

Press the mbsymb3_inv_0034.png menu button on the instrument cluster repeatedly until the mbsymb3_inv_00af.png or mbsymb3_inv_00b0.png symbol for the service appears in the display.

Additionally, you will see the remaining distance in kilometres (km) or the remaining time in days (d).

Vehicles with steering wheel buttons

Press the mbsymb5_inv_0056.png or mbsymb5_inv_0055.png button on the steering wheel until the standard display more appears in the display.

Press the mbsymb5_inv_0039.png or mbsymb5_inv_003a.png button on the steering wheel repeatedly until the service message appears in the display, for example:

  • mbsymb3_inv_00af.png Service A in ... days

  • mbsymb3_inv_00af.png Service A in ... km

ASSYST (Active Service System)

On vehicles with ASSYST, you are informed when the next service is due depending on the distance covered and driving style.

The time between individual service due dates can be extended by:

  • driving with care at moderate engine speeds

  • avoiding short journeys where the engine does not reach its operating temperature

Periods when the battery is disconnected will not be recorded by ASSYST. To make sure that you have the vehicle serviced at the correct time, you should therefore subtract periods when the battery is disconnected from the days shown.
