What are the defects?

On certain Land Cruiser Saraha 100 and Lexus LX470 vehicles, the construction of the steering shaft is such that the snap ring on the shaft may disengage when the vehicle experiences an unusually severe impact to the front wheels (for example, striking a deep pothole in the roadway).

What are the hazards?

If the snap ring becomes disengaged and the steering is then repeatedly turned to the full lock position, there is a possibility that the steering shaft may dislodge, which could result in loss of steering causing an accident.
