Anyone have more info on this
Is it internal axle?
My dealership won’t check whatever they’re supposed to check

There's not much available info on it yet, those affected are supposed to be notified next month. Without knowing any specifics, I believe what they are checking for crap left on the hub flanges, but you can double check those bolts yourself and see if they are tight. Their spec is 27ft/lbs. This might be totally wrong, but ATM this makes sense for what they're referring to.

I have a 2022 4X4 TRD Sport MT6 V6
I am not part of the recall,.... maybe the recall is for certain models or a certain time period during assembly,

Easy find to be sure, if you do not want to wait to see if you are affected by the recall enter your VIN or Tag# Here (link).

So it’s for late 22s and some of the 23s.

Basically what this is all about is if you look on the axle housing in board of the brake backing plate you’ll see the for axle retaining nuts on the flange. Basically they’re looking for leaks, and loose nuts. The thought process is welding, spatter, which is a little BB if you will, being on the flange and keeping the nuts from being fully tightened and seated.

Nuts that are not fully seated, you can loosen over time.

Granted, this is all speculation. However, the tundra had this exact issue and 22. The torque for your nuts is 33 pound feet. None of mine were loose. I removed all of mine one at a time and checked the meeting service for any welding spatter. Other than reinstalled and torqued.

Edit: Thanks for the update.

I took mine in for this recall and the airbag one. The axle nut had to be replaced and the airbag one was fine. They even washed my truck despite me telling me not to lol
