FSS (Flexible Service System)

Mercedes-Benz vehicles (1998 and newer) follow a maintenance protocol called the Flexible Service System (FSS). The service schedule under FFS will vary depending on driving habits. When a service interval is approaching, a notification will appear on the instrument cluster. This notification provides the remaining mileage until service is due. Once the suggested service due has been exceeded, the wrench symbol, plus the message “EXCEEDED BY” will appear, when the ignition key is in position 2.

Service A & B

Maintenance is due when you are prompted by indicators on the control panel of your vehicle. When a single wrench illuminates on your control panel, this means it is time for an A-Service with an optional tire rotation. We recommend a B-Service when you have driven 6,000 to 10,000 miles after the A service.

Service A:

  • Change synthetic oil & filter
  • Lubricate hinges and linkages
  • Rotate wheels
  • Inspect tires
  • Check brake pads & rotors
  • Inspect steering & suspension
  • Check windshield washer level and add as needed
  • Check coolant
  • Inspect belts
  • Check tire pressure
  • Check windshield and headlamp washers
  • Road test
  • Function a/c and heating system
  • Reset FSS Counter.

Service B:

Service B is recommended every 20,000 miles, or one year after a previous service, applying to vehicles model year 2009 and newer. However, to ensure your Mercedes longevity, we recommend B service be done between 6,000 and 10,000 miles after previous service. In addition to all areas covered in Service A, Service B includes:

  • Changing the cabin air filter
  • Inspecting the suspension
  • Replacing brake fluid.

About MBMS Service (or Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Service)

Mercedes service on models from 2005 include services labeled either A-H or AX-BX (model dependent) which indicates various levels of needed maintenance. The system determines the needed service by time and distance. The letters designate combinations of service items needed and a “+” symbol designates a brake inspection needed. A service sheet is compiled by vehicle and the displayed letter sequence.


We also recommend the following Mercedes services on the basis listed:

Brake fluid:

  • Every 2 years
  • Preferably in spring time
  • Brake fluid must meet factory specifications


Coolant should be checked for sufficient protection:

  • Before the start of hot and cold seasons
  • According to factory guidelines coolant must be replaced every 3 years
  • Every 45,000 miles or 2 years.


Fuel filters require replacement:

  • Every 60,000 miles


Fluids in Differentials:

  • Every 60,000 miles


Spark Plug Intervals:

  • 4 Cylinder Engines-Every 30,000 miles or 4 Years
  • Straight Six Engines-Every 45,000 miles or 4 Years

  • V12 Engines-Every 60,000 miles or 4 Years
  • 112 V6 Engines-Every 100,000 miles or 4 Years *
  • 113 V8 Engines-Every 100,000 miles or 4 Years *

* We recommend doing the plugs in these engines at 60,000 mi due to problems removing them and related “check engine” light issues from extended service terms.
