Exact Model: Aygo (MMT or VSC only), iQ,Yaris, Auris, Verso Corolla, Rav4 & Avensis
Description: ACCELERATOR PEDAL MAY FAIL TO RETURN TO IDLE
VIN:
Build Date:
Numbers: 176861
Defect: It has been identified that on affected vehicles, condensation resulting from cold-weather use of the heater or other causes may form on the worn surface of a component within the throttle pedal assembly known as the friction device. If this occurs, there is a possibility that, in the worst case, the accelerator pedal may return slowly, or does not return to the engine idle position.
Action: Recalled vehicles will have a precision-cut steel reinforcing bar fitted into the accelerator pedal assembly, which will create a space in order to reduce the surface tension between the friction device, and a component referred to as the pedal arm. The subject bar also strengthens the reaction force of the spring that returns the accelerator pedal to it's non-pressed position.
Launch Date: 06 February 2010
