I called the 1-800 Toyota number on Sept. 8 to get my 1998 T100 into their owner's database. The fellow got my VIN and gave me a reference number, asked who the local dealer was, said letters about the recall would be sent in late Sept., and that most dealers would not have the new part yet.

I took my truck in on Sept. 15 because the front passenger seatbelt was jammed. Lo and behold, the recall part was in and they installed it. They had to order a new seatbelt, but said it was covered by a 10 year warranty and would be free to replace.
