Mercedes-Benz Recommended Service

I might have posted this before but when you reach my age, who remembers anymore:

Mercedes-Benz Recommended Service

You've made a great investment in a great automobile, and when it comes to keeping that investment in a like-new condition, it's important to follow the recommended service levels of Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes-Benz uses a Flex Schedule for maintenance, prompted by indicators on the control panel of your vehicle. Your first service should occur between 5,000 and 6,000 miles. This is when we perform an Inspection and Tire Rotation Service.

Following that interval, your next service will occur when a single wrench icon illuminates on your control panel. The single wrench indicates it is time for an A-Service.

At about 5,000 to 6,000 miles after an A-Service, we recommend another Inspection and Tire Rotation. To learn more about the importance of your tires to your Mercedes-Benz automobile, please see our Tire Information Page.

When two wrenches appear on your Mercedes-Benz control panel, it is time for a B-Service. After you've provided a B-Service for your Mercedes-Benz automobile, it is time to repeat the cycle. That is, come in for an Inspection and Tire Rotation about 5,000 to 6,000 miles after the B-Service; we'll then see you when it's time for the A-Service; followed by another Inspection and Tire Rotation; then another B-service, and so on.


Following the Mercedes-Benz recommended service schedule for your automobile is the best method for keeping your Mercedes-Benz in top running condition and preventing unexpected repairs. All three services are detailed below:

Inspection and Tire Rotation Service
Inspect battery and check electrolyte level
Inspect windshield wiper inserts and service windshield washer system (replacement of wiper inserts additional)
Inspect belts, hoses and undercarriage
Inspect lights
Inspect brakes
Inspect and top off fluid levels
Rotate tires and adjust tire pressure (excludes AMG, Sports Models, SLK and vehicles with staggered wheels)

A-Service
Here is what we do:
Inspect and record tread depth, and correct tire pressure
Rotate tires Excludes AMG, Sports Models, SLK and vehicles with staggered wheels
Engine oil change and oil filter replacement Includes Mobile 1 synthetic oil
Lubrication service Includes hood hinges, lock cylinders, striker plates, sun roof tracks and a top-off of all fluids
Cooling system inspection Includes antifreeze protection level, hoses and clamps
Brake inspection Includes checking pad thickness and condition of discs, fluids and lines
Inspect heating and ventilation dust filter, replace if needed (replacement additional. Dust filter prices vary by model, check with your Team Service Manager)
Function check Includes warning lamps, headlights, exterior lights, seat belts, windshield wiper and washer
Inspect and lubricate throttle linkage
Check and clean air filter
Reset flexible service system counter
Here is why we do it:

Keeping your Mercedes-Benz automobile in top condition and maintained according to factory requirements involves more than a quick lube and an oil change. At this service, we inspect and clean the air filter, which protects your engine from harmful foreign particles. As gasoline and air is used in your engine, it passes through a filter and a series of injectors. If these components became dirty and clogged, this would lead to poor performance and decreased fuel economy.


We also recommend replacing the dust filter, which prevents harmful contaminants from entering the interior of your vehicle when functioning properly. Next, we inspect your fuel lines and connectors for any damage or wear, and we check your fuel tank vapor vent system, hoses and fuel tank supports. It's important that you trust only a Mercedes-Benz Factory Trained and Certified Technician to perform these functions.

Exhaust pipes, mufflers and hangers are inspected for cracks, deterioration or damage. Additionally, your brake lines and hoses need to be checked for cracks or damage, and your tires checked for uneven wear. These are all preventative checks designed to keep your Mercedes-Benz on the road and trouble-free.

B-Service
Here is what we do:
Replace windshield wiper inserts and service windshield washer system
Inspect and rotate tires, record tread depth, and correct tire pressure (wheel balance additional) Excludes AMG, Sports Models, SLK and vehicles with staggered wheels
Engine oil change and oil filter replacement Includes Mobile 1 synthetic oil
Lubrication service Includes hood hinges, lock cylinders, striker plates, sun roof tracks and a top-off of all fluids
Cooling system inspection Includes antifreeze protection level, hoses and clamps
Brake inspection Includes checking pad thickness and condition of discs, fluids and lines
Replace heating and ventilation dust filter ? Dust filter prices vary by model, please check with your Team Service Manager
Function check Includes warning lamps, headlights, exterior lights, seat belts, windshield wiper and washer
Inspect and lubricate throttle linkage
Replace air filter
Reset flexible service system counter
Inspect front axle ball joints; check steering play and power steering clutch; and rear differential levels
Inspect Poly V-Belt for condition
Inspect starting and charging system, and service battery
Inspect climate control refrigerant

Here is why we do it:

During the B-Service, Certified Mercedes-Benz Technicians closely examine your automobile's engine components, using specialized equipment to be sure that all the mechanical, electronic, and computerized devices are functioning properly.

At this time, we also need to address your automobile's heating and cooling system. Over time, your engine coolant becomes contaminated, losing its ability to protect your engine from freezing in cold weather conditions and overheating in hot conditions. Very expensive repairs could result from avoiding this required maintenance.

Next, we inspect your fuel lines and connectors for any damage or wear, and we check your fuel tank vapor vent system, hoses and fuel tank supports. As we said above on the A-Service, it's important that you trust only a Mercedes-Benz Factory Trained and Certified Technician to perform these functions.

Jeff – Good post, however, I was told by my local MB dealership that the U.S. schedules are numbered 1, 2, 3, etc. Not A, B, C, etc.

Seems like the MB-USA Maintenance Book has the 1,2,3 nomenclature. LINK

Well no wonder there is confusion. Just went back to the MB-USA site and it looks like they changed nomenclature for MY07 to A, B, C. Then for MY08 they list the intervals as 1/A, 2/B in the beginning of the manual but then list them as 1, 2, 3 in the detailed section of the manual. Then as you said for MY09, MY10, and MY11 they dropped the names entirely and simply refer to the millage.

Is this going to turn into an age battle? See I wasn't having a senior moment - just a little confused.

Schedule E service

My 2009 SLK55 is exactly at it's 4yr mark and my schedule E indicator just lit up. The car is 4yrs old, but only has 8000 miles on it. Per the manual, 4yr or 40K miles the transmission fluid and brake fluid needs to be changed...however my mercedes mechanic says that because of my low miles, I don't need to change my transmission fluid or brake fluid. Just wanted to see what everyone though about schedule maintenance on a low mileage car.

Thanks,

Fluids still break down even on low mileage or use cars

Thanks,

I recall in other post this past year that MB as gone to A and B service only. Other items not part of A or B are listed to be done based on miles or time which every comes first. Such as tran fluid on the 171 is 40,000 miles and not based on a schedule number or letter. Some have reported that some dealers has changed the cars to only show A or B service.

Based on this Anchau your dealer is correct you do not need to do trans. at 8,000 miles Brake fluid is scheduled for every two year due to moisture getting into the fluid, IMO is a question.

Is this an authorized Mercedes mechanic? Brake fluid shoud be changed every 2 years no matter what mileage.

As far as Maintenance schedule, I am not sure what has been changed but mine is easy: The letters indicate how many hours of work but don't indicate what work. A is 1 hour, B is 2 hours, H is 8 hours. Within those hours can be several combinations of service items numbered 1,2,3,4,5,8,11,12,13

Service E finished

Just got my Service E performed. It's really a service B plus brake flush. Transmission fluid didn't need to be changed as car only had 8K miles....
Service B $375, brake flush $135

Mechanic did note that there was minor oil seepage from the valve cover gasket.
