Any owners with a query can contact Toyota Ireland on 01-4190222.
In total, Toyota are recalling almost 7.5m vehicles around the world.
The Japanese car giant said today that the switch on the driver's side did not have grease applied evenly during production, causing friction in the switch and sometimes smoke.
No crashes or injuries have been reported in connection with the problem.
