Service A Schedule for your Mercedes Benz
Mercedes-Benz Service A is a routine maintenance service that includes a set of recommended tasks to keep your vehicle in optimal condition. The specific tasks may vary slightly depending on the model, year and configuration of your Mercedes-Benz vehicle.
Service A is not as extensive as B Service. For most Mercedes models, your service indicator will recommend Service A at 10,000 miles and every subsequent 20,000 mile interval. The following are common tasks typically performed during a Service A appointment:
- Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement: The engine oil and filter are changed using the manufacturer-recommended synthetic motor oil.
- Fluid Level Checks and Corrections: The technician will inspect and adjust fluid levels as necessary, including coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield washer fluid.
- Tire Inspection: The tires (including spare) are visually inspected for wear and proper inflation. Tire pressure may be adjusted if needed.
- Brake Component Inspection: The braking system, including brake pads, discs, and fluid, is inspected for wear and proper functioning.
- Resetting Maintenance Counter: The maintenance counter or indicator is reset, acknowledging that the Service A has been completed.
- Seat Belts: Checked to ensure that the seat belts are functioning correctly.
- Additional Checks: Depending on the model, there may be additional checks or inspections specific to your vehicle, such as inspecting the battery, lights, horn, windshield wipers, belts and hoses.
In all SLK, CLK, C-Class, and E-Class models, you'll also need to replace the dust filter.
