I'm surprised that Toyota has not issued an update on these recalls. Maybe they still have not figured out how to do these in a low cost way. I'm keeping my Yaris, but if someone was trying to sell one this could make it more difiicult.

Any guesses on when we'll actually be taking them in for repair; 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, more than 2 years?

I just received my remedy letter yesterday for the seat rails. They are replacing the rails altogether. I called my local dealer and they said as long as I have the VIN I can have them also give me new rails for my racing seat setup too.

I also got the seat rails remedy letter yesterday. No remedy letter on the spiral cable yet.
Just the preliminary one saying my Yaris was one of the ones with a possible spiral cable issue.

Also got my seat rail letter today. Phoned local dealer and they will not have the parts in until later this month. Have an appointment for July 29th to get seats fixed.

New seat rail installed on the driver's side. Slides back and forth easily. I seem to sit a little higher.

Yep, me too (sit higher now).
Got my rails replaced Tuesday (LF).
Spiral cable not yet available (updated P/N anyway).
Another nice factoid, no later computer update available (calibration updates) (that means no issues to fix)
Spiral cable, no big deal.
I want them to fix their issue, then replace mine.
(having experience with Yota's, they haven't gotten this right since at least 09 models-I changed a good many for various models throughout the years, but 09's ring a strong bell in the Taco's, well, all of em, really)

After reading a particular CTScott post a couple of days ago my takeaway was that the illumination of the light ('SRS/airbag light') = 'error' = means the system won't deploy AT ALL . I decided to pay a visit to the service department at Fred Haas Toyota World to see if the the recall (for my Blue 2007 Yaris) had yet been flagged in their with the word REMEDY (I had been told that this flag needed to be in place before any work could be done). By chance, the person who helped me today happened to be the assistant service manager. He told me that the recall had yet to be flagged REMEDY. He then asked me if the light is illuminating. I said yes. He then said Toyota doesn't want customers driving around with a system that won't deploy (naturally, Scott = correct), so they'll put in a new spiral cable (so the system will deploy) and then will replace that again once the REMEDY arrives (which he said will = a different part number). Why hadn't previous people under him hadn't mentioned this?....IDK. A new spiral cable will be installed tomorrow, enabling the system to then deploy in the event of an accident.

A temporary new spiral cable has now been installed (and will be there until the 'recall fix spiral cable (different part #) ' arrives). The system has been reset so that the airbags will deploy. The light is now off. In addition to the 'recall specified spiral cable part number', the dealer is also waiting for the seat track/rail parts (the designated replacements re the recall) to arrive. I also had my state inspection done today...no trouble passing at 294,417 miles (I renewed my registration (and got my window sticker) at Kroger last Sunday).

why hadn't they mentioned it? Because they probably knew nothing about it. Stuff like that just does not get communicated very well, if at all. The people need to choose to go searching for it.

Nice! I am still waiting for the remedy letter while the abs light is on. I thought the letter said it would come late summer?

Frustrating is taken so long for a fix. I hit 5 years of the stupid light being on and having no airbag the entire time.
