Frame strees Crack

Will Mercedes cover the repair of a Stress crack that developed on the rear cross member where the rear suspension mounts too? The crack is along a weld bead and now formed a gap causing the rear wheel to go grossly out of alignment. Vehicle is out of warranty (2003 with ~75k)

It’s strange why this even happened? No impact or any thing like that. Perhaps a week point in the architecture of the cross member. Is there a previson in the warranty that will cover this even tough its out of the traditional warranty period?

MB ie pretty good with courtesy claims even after warranty. They paid for the fuel pump that burned wire inside the tank even 2 years after warranty. Obviously they took the burned pump. Go to MB representative at your local dealer or call the national number.
Good luck
