S o can be achieved through the use of heating in cold temperatures or through other causes condensation occurs and 'lead to increased friction within the component.'

This would lead to the accelerator pedal ( Here all the answers to the Toyota accelerator recall ) 'in rarely returns to its original position more slowly than usual, or in very rare cases remains in the actuated position. '

To remedy the problem, a spacer is inserted into the accelerator pedal component, which reduces the contact pressure between the surfaces and causes less friction. This spacer is also supposed to increase the compressive force of the spring that brings the accelerator pedal back into position.
