Toyota has registered a recall of vehicles produced between 2006 and 2008 because of a possible fault with the electric windows master switch.
The recall affects about 138,000 cars in the UK, including RAV4, Yaris, Auris and Corolla. Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted to arrange repair work free of charge.
The power window master switch (PWMS) controls the windows for the driver and passengers, and it's possible that the PWMS, located in the driver’s door, may over time begin to feel uneven or notchy when it is operated.
Continued operation in this condition may cause the switch to stick or become inoperable. The switch is not designed to be lubricated with commercially available lubricants. Application of these lubricants could lead to overheating and/or melting of the switch assembly.
There has been one reported case in the UK. There are no reported accidents related to this issue.
