Every car benefits from regularly scheduled maintenance. Regular oil changes, fluid replacements and parts inspections can save you money long-term and prevent catastrophic damages from happening due to neglect.
If you own a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, chances are you’re at least somewhat familiar with Service A and Service B maintenance intervals. These procedures were developed by Mercedes-Benz to ensure your car receives the finest care and attention to ensure its optimal long-term operation. Service B procedures are generally a bit more involved than Service A routines, though both were created to ensure your Mercedes-Benz is well-cared for throughout its lifespan.
Our team at Burdi Motorworks in Schiller Park, IL is well-versed in all aspects of Mercedes-Benz Service A and Service B techniques. Let’s take a look at what the Service B routine entails to get a better understanding of how it keeps your Mercedes-Benz running smoothly.
Mercedes-Benz B Service: The Basics
Your Mercedes-Benz vehicle will likely alert you when it’s ready for a Service B maintenance procedure with a message on your dashboard. Typically, these will need to occur every 20,000 miles. When your Mercedes-Benz is ready for a Service B procedure, bring it to Burdi Motorworks, where we’ll perform the following:
- Oil change/oil filter replacement
- Tire inspection: We’ll make sure your tires are properly inflated and that good tread life remains. We will rotate your tires to ensure they continue to wear evenly.
- Throttle linkage inspection and lubrication
- Lamp examination: Headlamps, interior lamps, warning lamps, turn signals and horn
- Parking brake check
- Brake inspection: Pad and rotor check
- Joint inspection, boot inspection and Poly-V inspection
- Headlamp and windshield washer system check
- S-Class seatbelt and backrest lock check
- Fluid level check and top off
- Steering system inspection
- Dust filter inspection: Available for CLK, C-Class, SLK and E-Class models without an active charcoal filter
- FSS counter reset: The Flexible Service System (FSS) is the indicator that alerts you to Service A and Service B routines. We’ll make sure this is properly calibrated, so it will alert you to your next Service A or Service B interval.
Should our Mercedes technicians find anything during the Service B procedure that requires immediate attention, we’ll be sure to let you know and walk you through any necessary repairs.
