Affected Component: EQUIPMENT

Dealer Daily: Toyota has received reports indicating that some vehicles may experience spare tire carrier or carrier cable corrosion even after being inspected and/or repaired as part of a previous Special Service Campaign. During normal usage, water splashing rearward can reach the spare tire carrier due to variation in the placement of the foam splash guard or loss of the splash guard. If the splashed water contains high concentrations of road salt, corrosion of the spare tire carrier and the carrier cable may result. In limited instances, the spare tire may become seperated from the spare tire carrier and create a road hazard that could cause a vehicle crash. Toyota has revised the inspection and remedy procedures for this special service campaign. All owners of affected vehicles in Warm Climate States are now eligible for an inspection of the spare tire carrier assembly and cable.
