Freshness you can feel.

Freshness you can feel.

Professional air conditioning system and interior cleaning is the ideal way to eliminate all kinds of odours in the interior quickly and effectively, and deal with potential odour sources in the air conditioning system. The patented ECARF-certified air conditioning system cleaning effectively ensures that air stays fresh for a long time, and also includes an active odour-prevention agent. 

All Mercedes-Benz genuine cleaning products are specially tailored to your Mercedes – whether it’s for the interior or exterior, or for summer or winter. We take particular care to use environmentally-friendly ingredients that are gentle on materials. The result is effective cleaning products designed for your star.

Fresh air in the interior.

Fresh air in the interior. 

The Mercedes-Benz genuine interior air filter increases wellbeing in the interior by removing pollen, dust and particles. Unique to Mercedes-Benz: the ECARF seal of approval verifies the interior air filter’s hypoallergenic properties that maintain this air quality.

The air conditioning system cleaning is also ECARF-certified. Not only does the patented process remove dirt and odours thoroughly from the air conditioning system and the air ducts, it is also particularly beneficial for allergy sufferers and asthmatics. They benefit from both outstanding air quality in the vehicle interior and a pleasant and clean environment. 

The right pressure for your safety.

Checking the tyre pressure on your Mercedes correctly. 

The right pressure for your safety.

The right tyre pressure is crucial for your safety. That’s why you should check the tyre pressure before any long journey. Especially if your Mercedes hasn’t been used for a long time. You can find the recommended value in the fuel cap or the charging plug cap. On some models the current tyre pressure is also displayed on the control panel.

If you are parking your Mercedes in one place for a long time, move it a centimetre forwards or backwards on a regular basis if possible, to avoid deformation of the tyres. Time to replace your tyres or swap them for the coming season? Book a tyre change appointment with your authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer conveniently online.

What to be aware of when topping up the oil. 

Runs like a well-oiled machine.

Just like the tyre pressure, you need to check the oil level on your Mercedes regularly. Your vehicle manual will advise whether you should change the oil at fixed intervals – for example, every 15,000 kilometres or once a year – or if you can do it at different intervals. You can use an oil dipstick or a suitable quality probe to check the oil level and find out if the engine oil needs to be topped up or an oil change is due.

Since there are a few things to be aware of when reading the oil status, our experts will be happy to carry out the oil check for you. We also recommend that you always carry plenty of Mercedes-Benz: genuine engine oil with you for topping up. This is available from your authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer.
