Mercedes ReCall (In Germany)

Daimler Replacing Fuel Nozzle on 4,500 Mercedes Cars (Update2) -

'You'll note all this information is weeks old...
The Bad News continues to Plague owners in the U.K. ,with no letup/final solution in sight!
You can follow the Continuing Horror Story @ the MB Club Forum UK post below.
Twenty five pages of posts as of last night.

The whole Delphi (5th generation of same faulty Injectors since last March) is supposed to
only be a "StopGap" until Bosch can solve the problem [We Can only Hope and Pray] and
"Tool Up" the proper Injectors(AND controller system).

These drivelines were the candidate for Diesel and Diesel/Electric Hybrid for the GLK

Looks like it is too old news for anyone else seeking for a bump. What do you mean by Bosch solving the problem? Are they planning to start supplying an alternate part? So far it is simply an issue with Delphi injectors and their capability to supply new parts. Quite a big issue but both sides have done everything to solve the issue, except that MB could have initially selected another injector supplier.

Huh ?

Bosch was supposed to be the OE supplier...Until "Bean Counters" @ Deutsch Bank + Mercedes Sub'ed out the manufacture to Delphi for COST reasons...

Delphi is Incapable of producing Injectors THAT WILL "FIX" THE PROBLEM.
('Much less the necessary software and cpu to run the Injection system.)

All of the "Folderol" (Versions 1 through 6 of the Delphi Injectors) is simply a "StopGap" UNTIL BOSCH can Engineer and Produce a replacement Injection system.
[ALL of the affected (Effected?) vehicles WILL HAVE to be eventually
retrofitted with the BOSCH Injection System.](Whenever that becomes available)
