Component: VISIBILITY:POWER WINDOW DEVICES AND CONTROLS
Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing
Manufacture Dates: 03/29/2007 - 07/31/2008

Action to take:
Toyota will notify its owners, and dealers will inspect the switch and apply a special grease that inhibits heat build up or replace any switch damaged by the defect, free of charge.
