Toyota is pulling about 140,000 Tundra pickup trucks back in North America to fix a problem with the airbags.

The Tundra Crew-Max and Double Cab are affected by the issue, which is a miss-installed piece of plastic trim around the B-pillar which can interfere with the side curtain airbag. Toyota says that in the event of a deployment, the airbag will not achieve its intended shape.

No crashes or injuries have been reported as a result of this issue. Toyota dealers will inspect each truck, and if the trim is deemed to be installed wrong, it will be replaced. The problem was uncovered by a February test for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s new car assessment program.
