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.

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.

Clips holding left foot rest in place broke. Tried to glue and replace but fell off again. When driving the piece can slide under the brake pedal. Extremely dangerous. Reporting to Toyota in hopes that enough reports will generate a recall. Please do the same!!
