RepairPal Expert Overview
The mechanisms that inflate the side curtain air bags may have a crack develop, resulting in one or both portions of the inflator ejecting into the passener compartment. This could cause increased risk of occupant injury.
Recall repairs on your Toyota or Lexus must be performed by a Toyota or Lexus dealership, respectively. Toyota and Lexus will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in July, 2016. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota or Lexus dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The side curtain air bag inflators may crack and fracture. Dealers will install retention brackets to the curtain shield bags free of charge to resolve the concern.
