I have heard of a few with Scenic II's owners cars needing repairs carried out due to a distorted/bent pin, not sure did Renault introduce this to the handbook after a number of warranty claims
It says similar in my handbook. But it says to avoid leaving the wheels turned on full lock while parked as this can damage the PAS pump.
