2009 Scion xB RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment
The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or in some cases replace the air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
The driver's side power window master switch may lack enough proper lubricant to protect the sliding electrical contacts of the switch. This can cause a short circuit of the switch, leading to overheating and melting of the switch. Dealers will inspect the switches and apply lubricant to them if no abnormality is found. If a problem is found, the switch circuit board will be replaced. These inspections and repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.
Toyota and General Motors are recalling certain models because the power window master switch assembly in some of these vehicles was built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assembly. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. This could result in the switch melting or possibly catching fire. Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the master window switch as necessary.
