Alphard Club Posted April 13, 2018 Share Posted April 13, 2018 Over the years their were a few recalls to the Alphard. If you alphard has been in the country for a while or maybe even recently imported, it could be due for a recall. The few recalls are as follows 1. 2010 - Problem status 2010 (Fuel Pump and Brake Fluid/Servo) Because the fuel pump electric wire in the fuel tank is hard to bend, the connection terminal part may slide when the pump mounting surface is greatly displaced by tank internal pressure change when opening the filler opening. Therefore, if you continue to use it as it is, the connection terminal part wears and heat is generated by energization, the terminal fitting force decreases and conduction failure occurs, the fuel pump stops, there is a possibility of engine being unable to start or to be stalled while running. In the brake master cylinder, lubrication evaluation with the brake fluid used in the market was insufficient, so even if the brake fluid conforms to the standards, if a brake fluid with a low polymer content is used, the rubber at the rear end of the cylinder There is a possibility that the seal part of the product will be lubricated and turned up. Therefore, if the brake fluid leaks from the seal part and the warning lamp lights up, if continuing to use as it is, in the worst case, the braking force may decrease. 2. Problem status 2014 ( Passenger Airbag) In the inflator (inflator) for the passenger airbag, damage to the inflator container occurred during vehicle dismantling work. For this reason, although the cause is not known, in the same type inflator of the same year, the inflator container is broken when the airbag is deployed and it scatters, it may fire and the passenger may be injured, so all vehicles, preventive As a measure, we will exchange the inflator for good products. 3. Problem status 2015 (Passenger Airbag) In the inflator (inflator) for the passenger airbag, as a result of investigating the items collected in the market, it was confirmed that the inflator container was defective in airtightness. Therefore, in the course of long-term use, moisture in the atmosphere may penetrate into the inflator, the gas generating agent may absorb moisture and may not develop properly when operating the airbag. You will need your VIN in the box, the parts in red are what you need to input from your own VIN http://www.toyota.co.jp/recall-search/dc/result?FRAME_DIV=MNH10&FRAME_NO=0088734 Frame types are something like MNH10 MNH 15 ANH10 ANH15 ATH10 Frame numbers are 7 digits The vehicle linked above is a vehicle that has had all the recalls done.

If your Alphard has something similar to the screenshot below then your car is due for a recall Because the car was exported then in Japan their notification to the Japanese owner ends as they do not know the new oversees owner. What to do? At the moment there are no official recalls due to this car in the UK, it only applies to the car in Japan. Your local Toyota dealer will have no record of this recall. Basically your dealer will need to get permission from Toyota Japan in order for Toyota Japan to pay for the recall. However, your local dealer may not want to do the recall or even research. It does solely depend on the dealer. If you do your homework and contact Toyota Japan to get authorisation sent to Toyota GB, then Toyota GB will contact you so you can get the recall done at your local dealership. Of course if you are due the airbag recall then it's worth the time and effort. I will update this thread once i find out more information. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
