Since the common wear spot seems to be the top of the wheel, could this be form sun damage rather than holding it?

Those that have the issue, is your vehicle parked out in the sun during the day?

Due to these threads on this issue I did install a black perforated leather wheelskin wrap, turned out great. Good luck to all trying to resolve this with toyota.

So, here to add I had/have the same issue. 2017 TRD Premium. Started to peel at about 25,000 miles and two year from purchase. Do not drive by holding that spot, no gloves, cleaning solutions, sunscreen etc. Dealer refused to fix without approval from Toyota (the dps regional manager). Came back, outside influence. No explanation. Contacted Toyota and opened a case. They got back and said same thing- outside influence and not covered. The really frustrating part was the case manager could not explain the process, how, what, or why the decision was made. Only that it was the engineers who looked at it and therefore it wasnít covered. They looked at a few pictures (Unknown quality or quantity) that the dealer sent. I asked the toyota case manager if they would cover it as a customer service issue, or even offer to partially cover it-the answer was no. Since the engineers has made the decision, that was it. Donít know if it was one engineer, or multiple.

In the front of the warranty book is a dispute resolution process. I am in the process of following that and the claim is pending. It says only for California in the warranty book, but the information online looks like a national arbitration mechanism/process. I wanted to pass that on.
Also, there is a change.org petition with some signatures-
Petition * Replace steering wheel for free * Change.org

Mine has been peeling for about the last 5k miles. 2017 with 30k miles. It's due for service so I'll be taking it in later this week and will see what they say....

Mine is flaking on the perforated section on the left side. Never had a leather steering wheel do this before. Iím well outside the 3 yr/36k with about 46k miles.

If anyone is having this problem in Oregon, Kendall Toyota in Eugene replaced mine for free. I have a 2018 TRD ORP WITH 22000 miles. Took about a month to get approval from Toyota and to get the part shipped out but they did replace it.

If you don't mind me asking, what dealer was this? And was it peeling at the top of the steering wheel? How many miles on it? Thanks.

What dealer did you have yours done through? And how many miles/how old is the 4runner? I've opened a dispute resolution case via the warranty book and have found a very inconsistent way that Toyota dealers/regional managers seem to address this issue. Thanks.

2017 Pro. Glad I found this because I was pointing it out to the wife. Peeling in the exact place/manor as everyone else in this post.

Going to bring it in and see how they treat a pro owner. FYI bought it in late June 2017 and just cracked 18k on the odometer.

Last 02 V8 Tundra Limited steering leather wheel peeled off.
My ex 2017 corolla was starting to peel at 28k but just a little like 1/4 inch...
My aunts 2006 expedition did same thing.


Honestly I think this is wear and tear. You REALLY want the "techs" to dikkk with it and create a dash rattle or some bs like that? I know i can be anaaal about things but this in my opinion is wear and tear. All leather wrapped steering wheels do this.

Steering wheel cover. Done. Enjoy it.

Really waterhead?...on a 45K truck just forget about the wheel peeling?..I'm not, and doubt anyone here is. Go pedal your Fleabay garbage somewhere else.

Again, I'm not asking for top notch quality just something that'll last through the comprehensive warranty

true that! remember when cars of the AC vents would crumble or snap as you adjusted it back in the 90s? now u can mount phones on that shit!

Steering wheel removal is the easiest thing ever. No one is causing a dash rattle doing it.

All leather steering wheels do not do this. Nowhere close to ďallĒ.

The fact that all failures are on top may indicate its UV damage to the leather/plastic or whatever its made out of. The glass will stop UVB however your likely getting UVA on it. Do you park out in the sunshine at home or at work? Maybe get a windshield sun cover.
