Due to inadequate insulation, water may penetrate into the doors through the retractable side windows. Consequently, the water may enter into the Bowden cables inside the doors and hinder the movement of the cable’s inner wire at temperatures below freezing.
As a result, the driver’s or front passenger’s door may open by itself when the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Volkswagen T6.1 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 1 July 2019 and 5 May 2021.
