Three screws attach each door latch, over time these screws can loosen. If the latch screws loosen excessively the door latch may not engage correctly, the door could open unexpectedly while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk personal injury or an accident. Dealers will add a thread locking compound and re-torque the latch mounting bolts to correct this concern.
