I’m looking to purchase a 2019 GLC Coupe in the next few months (UK). Does anyone know when the date of change that the modified suspension parts were fitted at the factory on new builds of the GLC’s ?
Spoke to an MBUK service manager today. Well aware of the steering knuckle issue - they have done a few themselves. According to the SM any GLCs coming off the line from around Sept 2018 would have had the new steering knuckle factory fitted. Unfortunately he also confirmed that the 43/63 versions do not yet have a fix. Seems GLCs are considered hard on front tyres anyway with around 18K given as typical before replacement.
Hi Sean and welcome to the forum. Congratulations on the impending arrival of the Urban. I can understand your horror at discovering the tyre skipping problem when doing your due diligence research. The problem has been going on well for over 3 years now. The video you found was made by JP, a forum member, back in the early days. He even went on to launch a Mercedes Crabbing website to highlight the problem. Mercedes did provide many of us with free All-Season tyre replacements to mask the issue before the true fix arrived in the form of the modified steering knuckles.
Could you please keep all your posts regarding the replacement steering knuckles in the dedicated steering knuckle thread so all relevant information stays in one place. Have a look at my Post #54 in that thread, it probably has all the information you are searching for:
