German term or phrase: bei geschlossener Mannschaftstüre
I encountered this term in a manual and have a grammatical question: Is "Mannschaftstüre" singular or plural?

Explanation:
OK, I just put it in as an answer :))

"Mannschaftstüre" is singular, "Mannschaftstüren" is plural.

The phrase "mit der geöffneten Mannschaftstüre" is correct, because the preposition "mit" governs the dativ.
