Toyota Motor Sales, USA Inc. announced plans to conduct a voluntary safety recall involving approximately 342,000 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab vehicles, produced from 2004 to 2011.

Over time, opening and slamming the vehicle's access door may eventually loosen screws that attach the seat belt pre-tensioner to the seat belt retractor within the seat belt assembly. If the screws loosen completely, the seat belt pre-tensioner and the retractor spring cover could detach from the seat belt retractor, which can affect retractor and pre-tensioner performance, Toyota said.

Owners of vehicles subject to this recall will receive a notification by first-class mail.

Detailed information is also available at and at the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.
