RepairPal Expert Overview
The passenger front knee air bag module may not be securely fastened to the lower instrument panel. This could affect safe deployment and as a result the knee air bag may not properly protect a passenger during an accident.
Recall repairs on your Toyota must be performed by a Toyota dealership. Toyota will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in December, 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 dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete 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 front passenger knee air bag may not be fastened securely to the instrument panel. Dealers will inspect the fasteners and if necessary replace the instrument panel brace and body bracket, reattaching the air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
