Your car, SUV, Sprinter, or Metris is a mechanical milestone. To preserve its power and elegance, it’s important to keep up with regular Service B visits, which alternate with Service A. That’s where Mercedes-Benz of Temecula comes in. Below, you’ll find an overview of Service B* repairs (for MY 2009 – 2014 and MY 2015 and newer), and what you can expect when you visit our dealership!
Owning a Mercedes-Benz isn’t just about having a car that will take you from point A to point B. For many, a Mercedes-Benz is a prized possession and treasured investment. Many owners place a high value on keeping their cars in pristine condition, and to accomplish this, they follow Mercedes-Benz factory-recommended maintenance schedule precisely. Two of the most common maintenance items for a Mercedes-Benz are Service A and Service B. Below, we broadly discuss each service, and in detail, describe everything involved with Service B maintenance.
Both Service A and Service B are crucial maintenance services for your Mercedes-Benz. They include a Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil replacement, oil filter replacement, fluid level check and correction**, tire inflation check and correction, brake component inspection, and a reset of your maintenance counter. Taking your Mercedes-Benz into an authorized dealership for these services can help keep your car running longer, reduce the likelihood of component damage to your vehicle, and keep you fully informed of the condition of your car.
Driving inevitably causes wear and tear on a vehicle, making it very important to keep current with Mercedes-Benz recommended maintenance schedule. Allowing too much time to elapse between oil changes, for example, can cause debris and contaminants to build up in the motor oil and cause premature corrosion or damage to your engine and engine components. For this reason, Mercedes-Benz recommends that you carry out Service A and Service B at the following regular intervals:
Mercedes-Benz Service B includes additional maintenance services beyond the services offered by Service A. These include a cabin dust/combination filter replacement and a brake fluid exchange. Below, we briefly explain each service, and why it’s important to have this maintenance work done on your Mercedes-Benz.
At Mercedes-Benz of Temecula, California, we replace your existing engine oil with high-grade synthetic motor oil that meets the vehicle manufacturer’s exacting requirements. Replacing your motor oil is one of the most important types of maintenance you can do for your vehicle. It ensures all your engine components are properly lubricated and less prone to damage.
Even with an oil change, new oil will immediately start collecting contaminants and debris. Thankfully, cars have an oil filter that helps capture them and keep your engine oil working as it should. However, even if it is functioning properly, your oil filter will become clogged over time, making it important to replace it at regular intervals.
Cars are full of all kinds of fluids: transmission fluid, brake fluid, coolant, and wiper fluid, just to name a few. When these fluids start to run low or reach the end of their serviceable life, you need to correct (i.e. refill) them so they can continue to keep your car running well.
Tire pressures change all the time based on driving habits, temperature, and debris in your environment. Issues with tire inflation can cause various car troubles, including reduced fuel economy, premature tire wear, and steering and handling issues.
Outside your Mercedes-Benz, the air is full of all kinds of debris: dust, pollen, and soot, among other things. To breathe more easily in your vehicle, and to assist the engine with airflow, it’s important to have a working cabin dust filter in your vehicle.
Your vehicle’s braking system comprises dozens of components that perform specific jobs to allow you to stop your vehicle when required. A brake component inspection takes a careful look at each part of your Mercedes-Benz braking system to ensure it’s in good working order.
Like engine oil, hydraulic brake fluid can become contaminated over time. And because this fluid is essential to ensure your Mercedes-Benz drives safely, you need to replace it at regular intervals.
Your maintenance counter is your main source of information for when you need maintenance work done on your Mercedes-Benz. After completing the thorough maintenance and inspection work included in Service B, we will reset your maintenance counter so you’ll know when you need to return for your next service.
