    If your light is on, check with your dealer and they can check to see if you fall under the recall.

    You can also create an account with Toyota's owner's web site and it will keep you updated.

    If your light is not on, at this point, do nothing.
    The dealerships do NOT have the ultimate replacement part. They are currently applying a band-aid fix to vehicles that already have "a light" by replacing the clockspring, but the replacement is the same part that failed and it will need to be replaced again when the final repair parts are available.

    I took mine in when the light came on and they ordered the part and I went back and they replaced it.

    And you will have to replace it again when the new parts are available.

    It's been over 4 months... they have got to be close to a solution!

    I made a point to ask the service manager if this was the same part that came on the vehicle and he said it was a new part number. Here is the number they replaced with. If he lied to me, I will be back up there to the service dept. and also take the salesman with me that sold me the truck. I will also go somewhere else and trade this truck in and buy a new one from someone else. Is this a different part number?

    I don't know the comparative part numbers, but the recall letter stated that the "remedy part" is being developed, and in the event the light comes on, the dealer will fix it. Another letter will be sent when the remedy parts are available.

    The final "fix" parts are not yet available, and yes, the service manager lied to you. The part number may or may not be the same... but honestly, the final recall replacement part may or may not use the same part number.
    In some cases, when a part is superseded, the "dash" number is updated such as "-Y1" becomes "-Y2", but in other cases when the old part is completely eliminated and no longer available, the replacement part may carry the same part number.

    Right now truck is stock. Bought it used but planning a mountain bike rack, tow ball thingie and some sort of truck bed cover
    Hold your horses there champ. No need to trade your truck because of part numbers. People that work at dealerships never know what they are talking about so he did not lie to you. He told you the truth as it showed up on his screen. He is under strict instruction not to know anything about anything at no point in time so if his screen shows part number XXY and you need XXY-1 he thinks that his part number is right because it is only thing that comes up on the screen.

    If your car is under warranty and you got your "temporary fix" then you have nothing to worry about until they figure out how to make a new part and you will have to take your truck in again.

    If you paid for the part like I did then you will not be getting a refund until they develop a new part, send 2nd recall notices, provide you with instructions for a refund, you have all the paperwork documenting purchase of parts and labor, they approve it and only then 6 or so weeks later you would be getting a refund.

    Temporary fix part works just like original. Unless your light went on again, it will work quite fine.

    My temporary fix part number is 84306-04080 which was installed September 2011. We are now pushing 1 year since I changed the part and about 6 months since Toyota issued a recall.

    that transfer case in that jeep cherokee exploded because the guy was going 70 on the freeway for 150 miles, if you keep it slow on a fairly straight "paved" road for a couple miles under 70 u should be ok. I do it every month, just like the manual says to. Oh and I'm sure it also exploded because it's a crapola chrysler product we've now paid for twice with our taxes

    Uhh... I think you posted to the wrong thread.

    And if the cherokee you are referring to is the one that I mentioned in another thread where my buddy had it "lemoned out", it was not even a 4x4... it was because the roof rusted out twice (in California!).

    So since i already paid to have my truck fix they owe me my money and still have to replace the spiral cable with the newly designed part? Im pretty sure i might as well try to kiss my own ass because i know the local dealer is going to tell me too lol.

    This is weird....

    I called my TWO local Toyota dealerships to ask them about the Recall - and if they're performing them yet.... and they both said my truck isn't involved.

    There's no RECALL listed in the system for my truck. ????

    I thought all the early models were affected? Anyone else not involved in this?

    ^ Same with my 07. I wonder how they're deciding which trucks of the years effected get the recall? Maybe it's just ones built at a certain plant or during certain months? :notsure: Mine was built in Fremont Calif in Dec of 06.

    wat?
    go to the toyota customer page and create an account (if you havent already). in there you can put in your VIN and it'll show what recalls are applicable to your specific vehicle.
