Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling 46,176 model year 2022 Tundras and Tundra Hybrids.
The flange nuts on the axle shaft sub-assemblies can loosen over time and potentially cause one or both axle shaft sub-assemblies to separate from the axle housing.
Axle shaft separation can cause a loss of vehicle stability and brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Dealers will inspect the rear axle assembly, tighten the axle flange nuts, and replace any damaged axle-related components -- if necessary -- free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on July 15, 2022.
Owners may contact Toyota customer service at (800) 331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is 22TA05.
