Product title
Passenger car - Daimler AG , sales designation Mercedes-Benz SLR-McLaren
Product description
Concerns vehicles manufactured in 2006-2007 with VIN range: WDD299xxxxM001266 to WDD299xxxxM001518.
Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries because the windscreen has not been properly glued according to production procedures and, in the event of an accident, it could come out of its frame. Owing to the loss of support which the windscreen provides for the passenger airbag, this would make the retention systems less effective and, in the case of convertibles, would reduce the crash resistance of the A-pillar.
