What are the defects?
The detent lever of the child lock can break because it was damaged during the production process. As a result of this an active child lock can unnoticeably be switched off. This may lead to the rear doors being operable from inside the vehicle.
What are the hazards?
A child may be able to inadvertently open a rear door from the inside with the child lock on, potentially causing injury to a third party or increasing the risk of injury to occupants inside the vehicle.
