 Defect summaryToyota is recalling certain toyota racing development (trd) brake kits, p/n ptr09-35070, and trd high-performance brake kits, p/n ptr09-35100, installed by toyota vehicle processing centers and sold by toyota dealers as an optional accessory for model year 2007 through 2012 toyota fj cruiser vehicles. The subject trd brake kit is specifically designed for the front wheels of 2007-2012 model year fj cruiser vehicles. Due to the shape of the outer brake tube of the brake kit, the clearance between the outer brake tube and a trd 16 inch 6-spoke alloy wheel is minimal. If wheel balance weights are installed in an incorrect location, there is a possibility that the outer brake tube could be damaged due to interference with the balance weight, and brake fluid could leak from the damaged tube.
 Consequence summaryIf a brake tube becomes damaged and leaks fluid, it may result in increased stopping distances, and in some cases, loss of vehicle front braking performance, which could increase the risk of a crash.
 Corrective actionAll known owners of 2007-2012 model year fj cruiser vehicles will be notified by first class mail. If the vehicle is equipped with one of the trd brake kits, the brake caliper outer brake tube will be replaced with a newly designed one at no charge. During this service, if necessary, the dealer will make wheel balance adjustments. This remedy will be performed even if the vehicle has original equipment 16 inch or 17 inch wheels or trd 16 inch beadlock ring type wheels, which are not affected by the condition, to assure sufficient clearance in the event wheels are changed at a later time. Notification to owners began on december 17, 2012. Owners may contact toyota customer experience center at 1-800-331-4331.
