Mercedes-Benz has recalled its luxury S-Class in Australia this week, due to a potential problem with the seatbelts.

The carmaker says that a software problem with the rear control unit may prevent the seatbelt handover arm from retracting while driving.

If the vehicle was to be involved in a collision, the handover arm may break, resulting in sharp edges, and the seatbelts may not be able to offer the maximum protection to occupants.

A total of 41 S-Class examples are on the recall list for Australia, sold between November 2015 and March of this year.

Headlight issues also saw the S-Class recalled in October, while Benz recalled various S 350 models in the same month for potential transmission wiring problems.

Mercedes-Benz will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer or phone Mercedes-Benz Australia on 03 9566 9266.
