The Amount Of Adhesive Agent Applied Between The Outer Ring And The Torsional Rubber Damper (inner Ring) In The Crankshaft Pulley May Be Inadequate. If The Adhesive Is Insufficient, There Is A Possibility That The Outer Ring May Become Misaligned And It May Not Properly Rotate With The Inner Ring, Causing Noise And/or Illumination Of The Battery Discharge Indicator Light.

In Some Cases, The Belt For The Power Steering Pump May Become Detached From The Pulley Which Could Result In A Loss Of Power Steering And A Sudden Increase In Steering Effort, Increasing The Risk Of A Crash.

Summary Of Corrective Actions Taken: Toyota Will Notify Owners, And Dealers Will Check The Crankshaft Pulley To Identify Whether It Was Produced By The U.s. Supplier. If So, The Dealer Will Replace The Pulley With A New One At No Charge. The Safety Recall Is Expected To Begin During Early January 2012. Owners May Contact Toyota At 1-800-331-4331.
