This Service Campaign has been initiated because Daimler AG (DAG), the manufacturer of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, has determined that due to the settling properties of the seal of the camshaft adjustment solenoid specification, oil may enter the engine wiring harness (es) through the electrical connection of the camshaft adjustment solenoid from capillary action. Dealers will replace the camshaft adjustment solenoid(s) and install an additional adapter connector harness (es) at the next workshop visit.
