Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual: Attaching the roof carrier

WARNING Risk of injury if the maximum roof load is exceeded
When you load the roof, the center of gravity of the vehicle rises and the usual driving characteristics as well as the steering and braking characteristics change. During cornering, the vehicle tilts more strongly and may react more sluggishly to steering movements.

If you exceed the maximum roof load, the driving characteristics, as well as the steering and braking characteristics, will be greatly impaired.

  • Always comply with the maximum roof load and adjust your driving style.

You will find information on the maximum roof load in the "Technical data" section.

NOTE Vehicle damage from nonapproved roof racks
The vehicle could be damaged by roof racks which have not been tested and approved by Mercedes-Benz.
  • Only use roof racks tested and approved by Mercedes-Benz.
  • Depending on the vehicle equipment, ensure that when the roof rack is installed:
    • The sliding sunroof can be fully raised.
    • The trunk lid can be fully opened.
  • Position the load on the roof rack in such a way that the vehicle will not sustain damage even when it is in motion.
