Service A vs. Service B Intervals: How Do They Differ?

The biggest difference between Mercedes-Benz Service A and Mercedes-Benz Service B is the required time interval for each. Service A is required after 10,000 miles or 1 year, while Service B is required when you reach 20,000 miles or 2 years. The services included on Service A and B are largely the same, although Service B adds a brake fluid replacement and a cabin air filter replacement. Service B also provides certain Mercedes-Benz CLA and GLA AMG® models with an engine air filter replacement.

Service A vs. Service B Codes: What Do they Mean?

In addition to different intervals in which you’ll need to bring in your Mercedes-Benz for Service A or Service B, there are designated service codes, or subcodes, that will appear on your central display that will be an easy visual indicator of the maintenance required. A little symbol on your central display may be lit on to tell you if you need Service A or Service B. If your vehicle needs Service B, it may be paired with any of the following subcodes to give you more details on what issues or fixes your car needs:

  • 0 – Perform multi-point inspection
  • 1 – Tires need a rotation service
  • 2 – Replace the cabin and engine air filters
  • 3 – Replace the transmission fluid
  • 4 – Replace spark plugs, timing belt (if equipped) and adjust valves
  • 5 – The engine coolant needs replacing
