But I want to know if this "plastic friction slider" is an accepted solution by a completely different company. CTS claims it makes the pedals to Toyota specifications. Sooooo, it's a Toyota-engineered design. Maybe someone "did it right", but Toyota goofed.

So what really happened was Toyota's engineers designed it (in 2D), sent the design to CTS, and CTS was just "following directions", right?

I don't buy it. CTS is just as responsible as Toyota, for not testing the design to ensure it's safe operation. How did QC not design a test for something like this?
