Mercedes Service A
Mercedes classifies most of their standard services into “letter services.” This means that instead of telling you that your car needs X, Y, and Z done to it, they instead group all the necessary services together and call it a Mercedes Service A, or B, or C, etc. This makes things very easy for us mechanics, but it sometimes leaves you, the car owner, wondering, “What actually happens during that service?”
Apparently a lot of you have been wondering because my post on the Mercedes Service B has been getting quite a few hits. Because of that, I thought it would be a good time to fill you in on the Mercedes Service A.
If you bought your Mercedes new from the dealer, then the odds are that the Mercedes Service A is the first routine service that your car will need. I would even argue that the first service after purchase is the most important because it lets you know what your car has been doing, and what to expect from it in the future.
Enough about all of that, though. What actually happens during the Mercedes Service A?
- Tires are inspected and rotated (unless your model has staggered wheels)
- All warning lamps, headlights, and interior lights are inspected for proper function.
- Braking system inspection (includes brake pads, discs, fluids, and lines)
- Oil and oil filter change
- Moving parts lubricated as directed by the service manual for your model.
- Air filter checked and replaced as necessary
- All fluids checked and topped off
There are a few more points of inspection, and some things are dependent on your particular model, but this list comprises the most important service items.
