Toyota Canada Inc. on Monday announced it will begin fixing accelerator pedals in recalled Toyota division vehicles by the end of this week.

The company's engineers have developed a solution that involves modifying the pedal assembly to eliminate the excess friction that has caused the pedals to stick in rare instances, according to the announcement.

Toyota Canada announced a week ago that it was recalling approximately 270,000 Toyota vehicles equipped with a specific accelerator pedal assembly and suspending delivery of the eight models involved in the recall on Jan. 26.

The company also announced that Toyota would stop production of the affected models on North American production lines for the week of Feb. 1, allowing the company to focus on fixing vehicles for customers whose models are involved in the recall.

Toyota vehicles affected by the recall and delivery suspension include 2009-2010 RAV4, 2009-2010 Corolla, 2009-2010 Matrix, 2005-2010 Avalon, 2007-2010 Camry, 2010 Highlander, 2007-2010 Tundra and 2008-2010 Sequoia.
