Engine design covers installed on affected vehicles could come loose from the attachment depending on use (e.g. very sporty driving style or poor road surface conditions) and the running time. If the design cover is not fastened, there is a possibility that it will come into contact with the hot area of the exhaust gas turbocharger, increasing the risk of burns or fire.
