Risk type: Injuries
 
A fail-safe clip fitted to the steering column to ensure correct fitment of the steering column lower joint may have been dislodged from the part during the vehicle assembly process. Without this fail-safe clip, the bolt to secure the joint may be fixed without the steering column shaft being fully inserted on to the steering gear input shaft. Although the length of engagement is sufficient for the steering system to work normally, the forces on the joint (specifically during low speed manoeuvring) may with time cause the joint to work loose and disconnect from the steering system leading to a loss of steering control.

The emergency brake function of the trailer could fail when the vehicles are separated because the tow-bar first touches the road surface with the lower end of the brake lever after separation from the towing vehicle. In extreme situations, this could mean that the handbrake previously activated by the breakaway cable is loosened again. An inoperative brake on a trailer which has come loose from the towing vehicle could lead to an accident.
