Toyota recalling 342k Tacomas due to faulty seatbelt pretensioners

From ESPN
Toyota Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain Tacoma Vehicles
TORRANCE, CA August 7, 2013 – Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. today
announced that it will conduct a voluntary safety recall involving approximately 342,000 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab vehicles, produced from 2004 to 2011.
In the involved vehicles, screws that attach the seat belt pre-tensioner to the seat belt retractor within the seat belt assembly for the driver and front passenger can become loose over time due to repeatedly and forcefully closing the access door. If the screws loosen completely, the seat belt pre-tensioner and the retractor spring cover could detach from the seat belt retractor, which can affect retractor and pre-tensioner performance.
