    I was looking at recalls on my truck and see there is actually a recall for the third brake light leak. This has not affected me but according to the recall, I can take my truck in and they will do it anyway like they should. In the past on some recalls, they look at it, determine it don't need it and send you on the way.

    Just a heads up for those who don't know. Also, in the past, If you had this repaired and paid out of pocket for it, if you have receipts, they will reimburse you since it is now a recall. Worth a try.

    In before the obligatory “it’s a service campaign not a recall” posts to suggest they also call Toyota and tell them to fix their website since it says “one or more recall items is ready to repair…” and that is just WRONG. :rolleyes:

    I think they realized they used defective materials and says can deteriorate over time even if not leaking, also getting frame inspection

    Ya, going to schedule mine next month when work slows down a bit. See if they will do the TSB's (T-SB-0062-18/T-SB-0058-18) for the ECU flash while they have it anyway. Mine is a 2017.

    They are mailing out recall notices this week as well.

    Thanks for the heads up @suprafastcelica. I just checked my VIN and it came up too. Wonder if this has any relation to the email my local dealer sent me on Sept 12 saying there is an open safety recall for my vehicle.

    @nightcrawler did they end up replacing it? Mine doesn't leak either, but it's prob worth doing if it will prevent it later on.

    I haven't taken mine in yet since I have a cap and don't feel like messing with it right now. Luckily I have no issues with it leaking.

    I noticed some discoloration on the headliner of my 2016 when I was cleaning it to trade in, I guess it's the dealership's problem now.

    It always makes me laugh shit like this. Like, apparently we can launch celebrities into space, but we can’t make a gasket that doesn’t leak? How many trillions of gaskets, how many decades of making them………I digress.

    One is the surge between 40 and 50 mph, I believe this is the one that fixes where it feels like it is hunting for gears when you try to speed up on the highway. I may be wrong.
    The other is the stumble when you hit the gas and it takes a little bit to launch. They list it happens at high altitude, but people say it happens on hot days, cold days, sea level, etc. I think the fix to both is just to go up to the current update that covers both.

    The improved gasket design has been around for a couple years or more so I doubt newer trucks still have the old design.

    My brake light (and Sat radio antenna) started leaking in 2018. I park it outside so after every heavy rain I'd have a 1/4" of water in the damn floorboards. I complained to the dealer and at the time they told me it'd be $650 to repair, so I caulked the damn thing myself. It is in the shop now getting the recall and I told the service manager and he just laughed. I was not laughing.

    I took my truck in for service today and they said there was a recall on it - turns out it’s this, and they’re doing it now.
