Ok, had my 2020 126" cargo van in for the two recalls. Brake reservoir and fuel lines/clamps.

Arrived a few minutes before the 1pm appointment time and drove the van away at 2:17pm.

Oh, current mileage on the van is 16979 miles.

For the recall campaign: #2022040011 -- Check and Replace Fuel Hose; 2 Loom ties (006-997-18-90) were replaced and one fuel hose (0000000-004158) was replaced.

For the recall campaign #2022090032 -- Check Brake Fluid Reservoir Mounting -- the check found the brake fluid reservoir in no need of any attention.

While in the service bay the tech performed a multi-point inspection.

Front and rear brakes (both over 5mm). Front tires (over 7/32") and rear tires (over 6/32"). Front tires were replaced just late last fall. A bit worn -- mainly from use in town with lots of sharp turns -- and since the van is my foul weather vehicle I wanted good tires all around. Rear tires were hardly worn at all.

Tire pressures were checked. No note of what the pressures were or if they needed adjusting but I try to keep the tire pressures good.

Drive belts checked. Everything looked good.

Inspection for oil/fluid leaks. None found.

Coolant level checked and was ok.

Windshield checked. Ok.

The multi-point inspection found nothing in need of attention.

So the two safety recalls are out of the way. The hose being replaced was probably preventative in nature to get a better hose in there. There was no odor of gasoline. No leak sign.

Am very happy with the M-B dealer (Mercedes-Benz of Northwest Arkansas (Bentonville, AR)) and its service department, and with the sales department too for I bought the van there in August 2020 and the purchase was a most pleasant experience.

Have been thinking about buying another M-B but not sure what I want other than I think I want something with a V-6 engine. But a coupe, sedan or SUV... I don't know.

I'm going in on the 26th. They said they need it all day so they're giving me a loaner. I know the brake fluid reservoir needs to be remounted. I'd be surprised if the fuel lines are bad, but who knows.

Got a letter in the mail about this recall from MB, made an appointment with the local MB dealer and they had the parts in a week and did the inspection and gas line/clamp replacements. Apparently my van did need the replacement parts upon inspection. Just an update for others out there with this recall.
