Risk type: Injuries
 
The doors may possibly not fasten securely owing to bent locking pins. This leads to a risk that a door, in combination with an external suction effect such as that which occurs at high speed (e.g. on a motorway), may open unintentionally. Since the door in this case opens with a jerk there is also the possibility, given the considerable forces arising, that the door leaf will be torn off its mountings and detach itself from the vehicle.
