A class or B Class service

Most Mercedes Benz dealerships have what they call their A-Class service and B-Class service.

What is the difference between the two? What is the average cost of both?

I have an 99 ML 320, I recently bought. I had it serviced not to long agao, but the little wrench in my dash is coming on. How do I know what needs to eb done.

Do you get the A-Class first for certain things and the the B Class?

RE: A class or B Class service

B service is more extensive and expensive than an A service. An A service isn't a whole lot more than an oil change and some checks. Every other service is a B service. Your owner's manual explains what is done on each. As for cost, I'm not sure since I do my own. Dealers also have a nice handy dandy check sheet that you can pick up from them to help you see what all is done.

RE: A class or B Class service

first, congratulations on your new purchase, hope you like it! second of all, they are called just A service, or B service. the wrench on your dash indicates what needs to be done. 1 wrench means a service, 2 means b service. both include an oil change, general inspection of the vehicle, set tire pressures, top off all fluids. but a b service includes tire rotation, measurement of the brakes, replacement of the cabin air filter, the wiper blades and a few other more indepth checks that the a service doesnt cover. the cost varies for each vehicle.

For doing your own, how do you reset the FSS for A or B service on a 2000 E430?
