Daimler Vans USA is recalling 109 2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris vans because the front axle wheel bearings may have been incorrectly seated, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The problem might result in a front wheel detaching, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA warned. Dealers will inspect the front axle wheel bearing retaining rings and correct their position as needed. There will be no charge for this service.

Van owners can reach DVUSA at (877) 762-8267.
