THE RETRACTORS FOR THE FRONT DRIVER AND PASSENGER SEAT BELTS ARE MOUNTED IN THE ACCESS DOOR (REAR DOOR) PANELS OF THE VEHICLE.

What Owners Should Do: ALL KNOWN OWNERS OF 2007-2012 MODEL YEAR FJ CRUISER VEHICLES WILL BE NOTIFIED BY FIRST CLASS MAIL. IF THE VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH ONE OF THE TRD BRAKE KITS, THE BRAKE CALIPER OUTER BRAKE TUBE WILL BE REPLACED WITH A NEWLY DESIGNED ONE AT NO CHARGE. DURING THIS SERVICE, IF NECESSARY, THE DEALER WILL MAKE WHEEL BALANCE ADJUSTMENTS. THIS REMEDY WILL BE PERFORMED EVEN IF THE VEHICLE HAS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT 16 INCH OR 17 INCH WHEELS OR TRD 16 INCH BEADLOCK RING TYPE WHEELS, WHICH ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THE CONDITION, TO ASSURE SUFFICIENT CLEARANCE IN THE EVENT WHEELS ARE CHANGED AT A LATER TIME.
