    Mark your old one. If they tell you they switched it out then you will know for sure. My dealer straight lied to me - said they did. Nope - they didn't. Another guy here also marked his old one. - dealer told him they switched it out - nope they lied too.

    Good idea I'll do that. I've heard that time & time again so I didn't even use my ToyotaCare & did it all myself. I feel like I have a pretty good dealership & they have treated me pretty good but do I really wanna chance going XX,XXX miles on the factory oil. NOPE!

    Had the TSB done yesterday. I'm lifted and on 33s and have never had a TSS fault. They slapped that piece of foam on the back of the sensor and called it good. I didn't have to sign or disable anything.

    To anyone that got the sensor recalled: did they have to Re-calibrate your sensor?
    Thinking about putting on the faux pro grille, then bringing in my truck for the sensor recall and maybe recalibrating the sensor?

    do sensor recall and then put on the faux grille. my understanding is re-calibration is only needed for lifts over ~1.5". i have a 1.5" lift and my sensor worked perfectly until I brought it in for the recall and they disabled it (because of faux grille and lift) and made me sign paperwork.

    I took my 2018 sport in for 10k service and this recall. I have the OEM Pro grill. I was completely blindsided when they told me they would either have to put my original grill back on or disable the system. I told them to complete the 10k service and screw the recall. Ive had zero problems with the system.

    When I went in to pick it up, I had a closed door chat with the service manager. He said this was a Toyota policy. I pointed out that this grille was purchased at his parts department (they offer installation!). I find it totally unacceptable that installing a Factory grill would change a darn thing. Wish I'd found this thread earlier!

    Did they still disable it after you told them not to?

    They left it alone. At first I thought the Service manager was an ass, but I see from this thread that his hands were tied by Toyota. The conversation was funny. He said "that's not the grill that came on your Truck" I said "it's an OEM TRD pro grill...you sell it in your parts Dept". I then asked if the recall effected TRD Pros....he said yes. So, I then asked what does it matter if both are OEM grills and it's the same sensor. I buy lots of Toyotas, this is the most idiotic thing I've ever heard.

    I had my 10,000 service and had the recall done at that time. I have a lift, oversized tires and faux PRO grill with OEM garnish. After almost 2 hours of sitting in the lounge the service guy comes out with the infamous paper to sign (they only had "lift kit changing ride height" checked). I sign and was told they have to do a software update and re-calibrate the sensor. At that point they also offered a loaner car until it was finished which was nice. In the end they did not care about my grill or disable the system, and so far everything seems to work just fine.

    Went in for 10K service and recall yesterday. Had 4R Pro wheels and 265/70-17s on, but no lift or grill change. Was asked "Are there any modifications to your truck such as lift.............", cut her off right there with a "NO!". It is such a minor height difference with 1" taller tires, 1/2" effectively higher sensor right?

    Was waiting to hear from them about my "modification" but foam fix was applied no form to sign or questions asked. Feeling lucky and relieved! This is a huge dealership in NorCal and will stay with them because of this.

    The recall is for a software calibration, and to apply sealant they will not replace the sensor unless it’s defective.
