What next if your Toyota is recalled?

  • Owners in the UK affected by the recall will receive a letter from the company within the next six weeks asking them to make an appointment with their nearest Toyota centre.
  • The dealer will check the Power Window Master Switch. If it is operating properly it will be given a special, non-conducting lubrication. If there is is a problem it will be replaced with a new unit.
  • The work should take no more than one hour and will be carried out free of charge.
