Risk
Due to an error in the assembly process, the screws for the shock absorber strut on the front-axle steering knuckle did not achieve the specified tightening torque. Insufficient tightening torque can result in shearing of the screws in question. The altered chassis geometry can lead to poorer vehicle handling which could lead to a road accident.
