Just got my letter in the mail today. They are doing a 100,000 mile or 7 year coverage for the bolt. I'll take it in when I see that it's starting to go. Damn this salt!!

I changed out both of mine. They weren't that bad. They did have what looked like mulch on them. I think they get like 118 ft lbs. pretty good workout while laying on ones back!

yaris lower control arm bolts

the bolts rust off at the head

Canadian tsb

sample invoice for repair I found on net

I have been spraying 2 or 3 + times a year,, the whole area with rust check, spraying in every hole in the suspension and sub frame

2006 yaris HB 125,000km, so far so good,, Ontario Canada

I would not recommend trying to get the bolts out if they are old or already starting to rust as the head would probably snap off

Was working on a 2012 SE today and it looks like they still haven't corrected the problem. Loosened both bolts with my impact gun (doing alignment) and both sprayed rusty water at me. Not good. I think the best fix for most of us would be drilling a small hole to drain the water, rather than trying to prevent water from getting in. I need to align my car soon, so will try to figure something out and take pictures while it is apart.
