I'm impressed they managed to do it in only 2.5 hours to.

It might be not that hard. Some screws here and there. And I assume they did this more than just one time so they know what to do.
First time I took out my door panels took me about 5-10 mins. Now, after 3-4 times, I can do it in about 30 sec

I suppose so. The one job that would intimidate me in the Yaris or any car is pulling the dash out.

Also what about the front seatís airbags? Arenít they Takata, or they are just too cheap to issue a seat replacement?

The driver side airbag is something I've had in the back of my mind since they announced the recall on the passenger side. I assumed they're both made by Takata, but was hoping the very different design of the driver side unit would save it from being recalled. Hearing that they told you both driver and passenger airbags need to be recalled is worrisome

The driverís side airbag is easier to change anyway. I assume it will take less than 2 mins for them. Just call them and they will tell you. I think that you will have to change it too.
The passenger side is the hard one thought,because they have to take off the whole dash. I am worried about it because they may scratch something or not screw it back, properly.

That was a concern of mine, too. Fortunately, the dealership I went to did a fantastic job. My inside/outside air selector actually worked better after the airbag change than prior to. I wonder if they broke it during the swap and replaced it, because it truly feels better than ever.

I think I still have the link to the vin checker, so I'll have to keep an eye out for word on the driver side.

Vin check for me wasnít helpful.
It showed that I have no recalls whatsoever, but I had 3.
Just call them and ask. I called Toyota support they answered the phone right away, they asked me my license plate and the told me what recalls I have.

I think you were lucky. I wish they will make nice job to me too.
I called them they will order the parts and when they arrive, I will arrange an appointment.

I just got the passenger air bag recall notice for my '09 a few weeks ago.

So, today I took it to the dealer to have it repaired. It only took about 75 minutes .

However, no one there could tell me what was involved in the repair and what had to be removed to replace the faulty inflator..
So, I removed my tach (simple) and emptied all the storage areas just in case.

Does anyone know exactly what was involved and what had to be removed?

Everything seems in order when I got my Yaris back.

I believe the inflator is accessible from inside the glovebox.

I've had the dealer remove the whole dash back in 07 and involves removing the pillar covers and the passenger air bag is attached to the dash.
