DETROIT -- Toyota is recalling 342,000 Tacoma midsize pickup trucks to fix a problem with the seat belts.

The recall affects the company's Access Cab models made from 2004 to 2011.

Toyota says screws that attach part of the seat belts to the mechanism that retracts the belts can come loose. If that happens, the belts may not work properly for the driver or front passenger.

The company will notify owners of the pickups by mail and dealers will fix them free of charge.

Owners can call Toyota at (800) 331-4331.
