Lexus Recall : Steering Shaft

2007 Lexus LX 470

This could result in loss of steering control increasing the risk of a crash.

Steering — Gear Box — Shaft Pitman

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2003-2007 Lexus LX470 vehicles. The construction of the steering shaft is such that the snap ring on the shaft may disengage when the vehicle experiences an unusually severe impact to the front wheels. If the snap ring becomes disengaged and the steering wheel is then repeatedly turned to the locked position, over time the steering shaft may become disconnected.
Actions
Dealers will replace the snap ring with a newly designed one and install an additional component which will prevent separation of the steering shaft. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on August 23, 2010. Owners may contact Lexus at 1-800-255-3987.
