Recall: No. 4 of 5
Recall Ref: R/2014/048
Exact Model: Rav4 and Hilux
VIN: Various
Build Date: February 2005 to April 2010
Numbers: 25203
Defect: The steering column assembly in affected vehicles contains electrical connections to the driver's air bag module housed in a spiral cable assembly which includes a Flexible Flat Cable (FFC). Due to the shape and location of the FFC's retainer the FFC could contact a small point of the retainer and become damaged when the steering wheel is turned. In FFC's with seven channel circuits this damage could occur to a circuit on the FFC that provides connectivity to the driver's air bag module. If connectivity is lost the air bag warning light will illuminate. In addition the driver's air bag could become deactivated causing it not to deploy in the event of a crash. This could increase the risk of injury to the driver.
Action: Replace spiral cables with new ones
Launch Date: 22 April 2014
Recall: No. 5 of 5

Action: Affected vehicles will have their wheels replaced with those of an improved quality.
