What are the defects?

On certain Yaris NCP90, NCP91 and NCP93 vehicles, an insulator pad was incorrectly installed underneath both of the front seat belt retractors (equipped with seat belt pretensioners) which are located in the centre (B) pillars. There is a possibility that these insulator pads could be damaged following a collision as a result of the high temperature gas generated during the front seat belt pretensioner operation if activated.
