Mercedes Service B


Posted on 23rd February, by admin in Maintenance Tips, Mercedes. No Comments

With many vehicles you can be left wondering if you should replace this or that, or if it’s been too long since X was checked. Sometimes you won’t even realize there is an issue until a you have been handed a major repair bill. Not so with Mercedes.

One of the small joys of owning a Mercedes vehicle is the intricate computer systems that are on board. These computers measure milage, hours on the engine, and other factors, to determine when professional servicing is necessary. As a Mercedes owner, one of the most common services you will need is a Mercedes Service B. 

At this point I want to tell you something important: If your car is telling you that it’s time for a Service B, then get it done; if your car isn’t saying to get a Service B, then don’t worry about it. After many years of working on foreign cars here at German Auto Tech, and having done countless Mercedes Service B’s in that time, I can tell you that your car is actually pretty smart. Your driving habits, mileage, and engine hours all affect when your next Service B is due, and the computer systems in your car do a great job of combining all these factors to calculate exactly when you need a service.

I’ve performed the Mercedes Service B on some cars with as little as 8,000 miles, while some others didn’t need their first one until almost 30,000 miles. Out of all of these Service B’s, I can’t remember a time when I thought that the car had gotten it wrong and the owner could have waited a while longer.

So what’s involved in a Service B? Well, it will vary slightly depending on your particular model, but these are a few of the most important points:Mercedes Repair Memphis

  • -Oil and oil filter change
  • -Replace dust filter
  • -Inspect brakes and brake pads
  • -Replace headlamps/fog lights as needed
  • -Inspect tie rods and drag link joints
  • -Check play in front and rear wheel bearings

Obviously this is not a comprehensive list. A complete Mercedes Service B involves over 50 points of inspection. (Again, the exact amount varies slightly depending on your model.) Whatever model your Mercedes is, though, one thing that is standard to all cars is the need for professional maintenance and upkeep. (Did I mention German Auto Tech is known for high quality?)
