SEAT BELTS

Recall number: 13V337000
Recall date: 08/07/2013

Problem Summary:

TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2010 TACOMA ACCESS CAB VEHICLES MANUFACTURED SEPTEMBER 14, 2004, THROUGH MARCH 29, 2010; AND MODEL YEAR 2011 TACOMA ACCESS CAB VEHICLES MANUFACTURED JULY 1, 2010, THROUGH SEPTEMBER 7, 2011. IF THE ACCESS DOORS ARE REPEATEDLY AND FORCEFULLY CLOSED, THE SCREWS THAT ATTACH THE SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER TO THE SEAT BELT RETRACTOR CAN LOOSEN OVER TIME. IF THE SCREWS LOOSEN COMPLETELY, THE SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER AND THE RETRACTOR SPRING COVER COULD DETACH FROM THE SEAT BELT RETRACTOR.

Consequence:

IF THE SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER DETACHES FROM THE SEAT BELT ASSEMBLY, THE SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER WILL NOT PERFORM AS DESIGNED, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY IN A SEVERE CRASH.

Corrective Action:

TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE SEAT BELT ASSEMBLIES. BASED ON THE INSPECTION, THE SEAT BELT ASSEMBLY WILL BE REPLACED OR NEW PRE-TENSIONER SCREWS WILL BE INSTALLED WITH THREAD-LOCKING SEALANT AND A RETRACTOR SPRING COVER WITH STOPPER RIBS TO PREVENT LOOSENING OF THE SCREWS. THESE SERVICES WILL BE PROVIDED AT NO COST TO THE OWNER. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED A NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.

This recall affects vehicles manufactured between 09/14/2004 and 03/29/2010.

Recall number: 12V092000
Recall date: 03/07/2012

Problem Summary:

TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2009 TACOMA VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM SEPTEMBER 14, 2004, THROUGH AUGUST 29, 2008.

IF DAMAGE OCCURS, THE AIR BAG WARNING LAMP WILL ILLUMINATE AND THE AIR BAG MAY BECOME DEACTIVATED.

Consequence:

IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, THE DRIVER¿S SIDE AIR BAG MAY NOT DEPLOY, INCREASING THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.

Corrective Action:

TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE SPIRAL CABLE ASSEMBLY, FREE OF CHARGE. AN INTERIM LETTER IS EXPECTED TO BE MAILED TO OWNERS DURING APRIL 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.
