What are the defects?
The tooth flank depth in the serration of the splines may not be sufficient for the required transmission of force between the steering column and the spindle.
What are the hazards?
If there is not sufficient depth there may be slippage of the connection between the steering column and steering spindle. This could lead to a loss of control of the vehicle, posing a safety hazard to the driver and other road users.
