Recall 15V240000

Overhead Trim Panel Detaches During Side Curtain Air Bag Deployment

Recall Details

An interior trim panel may not be secured properly due to a mounting clip being reused during installation of an overhead entertainment system. This can result in the trim panel detaching in an accident. Dealers will replace the trim panel securing clip free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles that had overhead entertainment systems installed, a trim panel may not be secured properly because an attachment clip was reused instead of replaced. This could result in the trim panel detaching and striking an occupant in a collision.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Toyota must be performed by a Toyota dealership. Toyota began notifying known owners of affected vehicles in June 2015. 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 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.
