I can't believe Toyota is not addressing thru a recall. This huge safety problem is being reported all over the web!!
Left foot pedal rest came off. Clips broke. Purchased new one but not sure how to install it.
Left fot rest pedal fell off while driving, very scary as it almost became lodged under brake pedal. Recall???
The plastic pegs on the back of the footrest pedal break off and then the pedal is just held in by gravity, and can slide under the other pedals causing an accident.
Drivers side foot rest fell off and went under brake pedal creating a very hazardous situation.
Same problem. Cheap plastic part broke when bracing my foot on pedal to get keys out of my pocket. WTH!!!
I had the same thing happen. I called toyota direct put in a complaint and recieve a complaint number. If enough people call and report it they will do a recall. And if you have the foor rest replaced and have a claim number with a repair slip they will reimburse you if the recall happens. Even if its a year or two. Its worth calling. If they dont know they cant help you.
Foot rest fell off at 25,000 miles. Toyota replaced it and it fell off again at 36,000 miles. Toyota will not replace because after warrenty!

I also pushed my foot down to get keys out of my pocket and the foot rest broke off.
The left foot rest broke of and lodged under the brake pedal. I was able to kick it out with out a problem. I'm not sure I want to replace it...
Left footrest broke off. All clips that are supposed to hold it in place broke.
Replaced foot rest twice already. It just breaks off, and both times while driving... So dangerous!
Same thing happened to me, the pedal is only held on with 3 cheesy little plastic clips. Looking for a new one now...
Plastic clips broke off and left foot pedal came off while driving.
Pedal broke off. Composite plastic from pedal broke where top clip snaps in. Bottom bolt broke off at weld below bottom clip.
The stems on the foot rest broke off, allowing the foot rest to move and shift. I had to buy a replacement as it potentially could have gotten lodged under brake or gas pedal, possibly causing an accident.
