Mercedes-Benz Recalling 2600 Cabriolet Vehicles
    MONTVALE, N.J., Feb. 22 -- Mercedes-Benz of North America,
Inc. (MBNA) today announced that it has initiated a voluntary recall of about
2,600 vehicles.  Quality control inspections during the manufacturing process
revealed that the 1999 model-year CLK320 Cabriolet -- a two-door, four-seat
convertible -- may have front shoulder belts that could pull loose in a
serious collision.  Although there have been no reports of this occurrence,
specially designed anchor bolt assemblies will be installed in all affected
vehicles at no charge to clients.
    MBNA is sending a letter to owners of all affected cars, asking them to
contact their nearest authorized Mercedes-Benz retail center and emphasizing
the continued importance of wearing seatbelts.  Free installation of the new
anchor bolt assemblies will take about two hours.  If Mercedes-Benz clients
have any questions, they are encouraged to call 1-800-FOR-MERCEDES.
