^ Nasty.

Just got my letter from Toyota Canada moments ago indicating they have now completed 'parts preparations' and I can now book an appointment to remedy my situation.

The recall has spread to Yaris NSP130 in Europe starting with our first model years 2011.

Keep in touch with your dealers for information about recalls , Airbag ECUs in some models are affected too.

Yes, I received a letter some weeks ago advising that my 2014 Yaris was affected. Originally it didn't affect my year.
According to the letter I now have to wait until contacted again, no time estimate. This is such a large recall, not just Toyota, meaning demand is outstripping supply for replacements.

The mail I received says they will contact again when they have the parts to do the recall.
I wonder if it would be safer to just disable the bag for now. Haha

So you haven't gotten the second letter yet? I received the initial recall letter in February, and the second letter stating they are ready last week of April.

it took close to 3 hours.
Not exactly sure if that is the time it takes to do the job or my dealer is very slow.

If I'm not mistaken, they do have to remove the entire dash. Won't be a necessarily quick job that's for sure.

Sounds about right given the time they took to swap out mine.

I got the letter a couple months back. I am not looking forward to this situation at all. I have heard several stories of dealerships effing up people's dashes. I am still needing to get Tiamat on the road for the year and registered here in TX as it is so it will still be a bit. Then there is the situation with the roll cage and Kirkey seat. I have no idea if the dealership here will pitch a fit.

Ugh, sounds like a bit of a drag. Hopefully it'll go smoothly.

I've been getting letters about this for at least 18 months. Until recently due to work there was only a handful of days a year i didn't need my car. I really need to get this done though. I have two other recalls pending on my car on top of this.

My car just had the airbag recall done (passenger side) and they only had the car for 4 hours - and washed it inside and out.

Got mine done today. 75 minutes from check in to checkout.

Sadly they did manage to scratch my radio bezel.

Aww, lame. Did you make mention of it? Maybe they would have replaced it for you...
