On the vehicles concerned, the A-pillar panel holder may not be screwed in place according to specifications. Activation of the airbag, as well as causing the panel to separate, could lead to bending affecting the inflation behaviour of the airbag and, in a worst-case scenario, damage the airbag, increasing the risk of injury.
