If you own an affected vehicle you’ll be contacted in writing to make an appointment at your preferred Toyota dealer to have the lower resin bumper inspected and improved fasteners installed, free of charge.
Toyota claims inspection and installation of the retention hardware will take approximately one hour, though in some cases the bumper cover may need to be replaced, which will take around 2.4 hours. This depends on the dealer’s work schedule.
