What is service A, A1, A2, B, B1, B2, C, D, E, E1, E2, E3, F, G, H, or + service for Mercedes Benz and how do i determine what it is?
The services due are determined by the car based on mileage and time. A-H is a time indicator for how long the service on your car will take to perform (A=1 hour , B=2 hours, max H=8 hours). If you have a + after the service that means you are due for a brake inspection.
The services due can be any combination of 20 possible services. To view the service item(s) that are due, you can call up the service menu in the multifunction display. It will tell you the service code due, but to determine what service the code correlates to, the Mercedes Benz service information program (WIS) will have to be called up. The services do vary from vehicle year and model so a service number 5 on one car can be completely different on another car.
