Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual: Operating safety

WARNING Risk of accident due to malfunctions or system failures
If you do not have the prescribed service/ maintenance work or any required repairs carried out, this could result in malfunctions or system failures.
  • Always have the prescribed service/ maintenance work as well any required repairs carried out at a qualified specialist workshop.

 

WARNING Risk of accident or injury due to incorrect modifications on electronic component parts
Modification of electronic components, their software or wiring could impair their function and/or the function of other networked component parts. In particular, systems relevant to safety could also be affected.

As a result, these may no longer function properly and/or jeopardize the operating safety of the vehicle.

  • Never tamper with the wiring and electronic component parts or their software.
  • You should have all work on electrical and electronic components carried out at a qualified specialist workshop.

Observe the "On-board electronics" section in "Technical data".

WARNING Risk of fire due to flammable materials on hot parts of the exhaust system
Flammable material such as leaves, grass or twigs may ignite if they come into contact with hot parts of the exhaust system.
  • When driving on unpaved roads or off-road, regularly check the vehicle underside.
  • Remove trapped plants or other flammable material.
  • If there is damage, consult a qualified specialist workshop immediately.

 

NOTE Damage to the vehicle
In the following situations, in particular, there is a risk of damage to the vehicle:
  • The vehicle becomes grounded, e.g. on a high curb or an unpaved road
  • The vehicle is driven too fast over an obstacle, e.g. a curb, speed bump or pothole
  • A heavy object strikes the underbody or chassis components

In situations such as this, the body, the underbody, chassis components, wheels or tires could be damaged without the damage being visible. Components damaged in this way can unexpectedly fail or, in the case of an accident, may not absorb the loads that arise as intended.

If the underbody paneling is damaged, flammable materials such as leaves, grass or twigs can collect between the underbody and the underbody paneling. These materials may ignite if they come into contact with hot parts on the exhaust system.

  • Have the vehicle checked and repaired immediately at a qualified specialist workshop.

    or

  • If driving safety is impaired while continuing your journey, pull over and stop the vehicle immediately in accordance with the traffic conditions, and contact a qualified specialist workshop.
