Toyota needs to address this problem with a TSB for fan motor replacement.

Update!!!!!! I just took my truck to newark toyota in DE and they are replaceing the fan motor. They said the bering is going bad. Also they are doing the suspension TSB new springs and shocks. I don't really nedd the new shocks I just got my 5100s in today. They said they will charge me to put those on. I don't know why thet have to put new shocks on anyway. Atleast that damn chirping noise should go away and i will get my springs upgraded.

Thanks man. More ammo for me when I take mine back the 2nd time. Question...do I need to be under factory warranty to get the suspension TSB done? I do have an extended warranty, but I dont know that it covers that.

Not sure about the warranty for the tsb. I Just traded my access cab O6 for the 96 dc I'm driving now and this one has 31000 miles on it. My last o6 had every damn thing in the tsb list. I was not aware of this site then. I would think if you had an extended warranty it should be covered, but I'm not sure. good luck

Check out this thread....

I took my problems to the dealer and they ended up changing out the blower motor because of the noise.

No problems now.

Not sure if this works, but I think I'm going to give it a try since I'm out of warranty. Definitely shows why replacing the blower motor has fixed it for others. Anybody else tried this?

From Toyotanation:

Quote:
I've found the reason for the ticking sound. My dealer kept saying "normal" and "there are leaves in the fan". I kept telling them otherwise until I got pissed enough to just take apart the blower fan and see where EXACTLY the sound was coming from. The sound is coming from the metal faceplace which covers the wire spool around the spindle of the fan. the faceplace must be balanced properly because it holds in place the spindle which is rotating for the fan to blow. when the faceplace is off balance by one of two screws that holds it in place, the fan ticks like a MF'er....as you balance the plate, the tick goes away and is as quiet as a mouse.

#1 I took my glove box completely off making sure to release the springy thing first on the right side towards the passenger door and then just popped her out.

#2 I then got out my trusty ratchet with a 5.5mm socket and removed 3 screws on the underside of the blower....the fan will slide out easily. leave the wires attached (be careful as the fan is still runnin' lectric)

#3 let down the door that holds the cabin filter in and remove filter. now you can reach up in there and see if any of those mysterious leaves are present. blow it out with your air compressor or just root your hand around in there to get anything out.

#4 hold the black plastic fan housing in your hand carefully and reach over and turn your a/c on the low setting (BE CAREFUL as that thing is quick to get away from you and can take a nub off pretty quickly) make sure you can hear the sound coming from the assembly in your hand. If so, move to step #5.

#5 remove the covering with a phillips screwdriver (4 screws - i think) and remove that cover to reveal a silver metal cover with TWO (2) lubed screws. THESE ARE THE SCREWS THAT MUST BE BALANCED. Take a pair of vice grips and grab the black housing with them so you can get your hands away from the moving fan and so you can hold it steady. then use your phillips screwdriver on one of the two screws and notice how you can make the sound/tick worse as you tighten one of the screws.....too tight and the fan slows down and/or TICKS, too loose and the fan slows down....(spindle getting in a bind).

There is a point where the fan will turn fastest and the sound will disappear magically. You'll see what I'm talking about once you're in there adjusting the screws to find that perfect point.

#6 re-assemble and enjoy!


I hope this helps a few people that have this ANNOYING sound!

sometimes it just takes getting pissed off.....damn delphi.

Why didn't they have metal stoppers under those screws or not have the spindle held still by a moveable plate......argh....


I think that over time, those screws are backing out at different rates, which makes the spindle bind up and/or ticking sound occur......

I had the same noise I took the filter out and used compressed air to blow out any junk from the fan, for some reason small wooden stick was in there and was making this noise.
Not sure how the stick got in there because I had filter in there.

Noise is back, I think it's time for the new fan does any one have any links to good website that sales the fans.
I will try to balance the fan with those two screws and update every one if it worked.

So I tried this and so far it seems to have worked. I didn't take the entire fan out. Only took off the plastic cover (4 phillips screws and 1 5.5mm hex). This way I could listen to it while in it's installed position, and no risk of loosing fingers. When I took the cover off, the fan didn't seem to tick anymore. So, I tightened up the two screws on the bottom of the fan motor anyway. Drove it with the cover off for two days with no ticking. The fan was much louder though with the cover off. Last night I put the cover back on and had the fan turned on while putting in the screws (4 phillips and the hex). I was listening for ticking while tightening the screws. TIP: Don't over-tighten the four phillips, they feel like they will strip the plastic easily. The last screw I put in I had to loosen a hair or else it started to tick. Drove around some last night, and it seemed to be ok.

Hopefully this has fixed the problem.

TSB for Blower Motor Sqealing/Ticking Noise

I have a 2006 TRD Double Cab with the awful, extremely annoying ticking, high pitched sound coming from the fan motor. It sounds likes there's a cricket inside the vents. I have had the fan motor replaced once already, but the sound came back again after about 6 months. Today was the last day of my extended warranty coverage and I took it in to the dealership and fully expected them to tell me that it was probably just a leaf that got in or that it wouldn't be covered under warranty - that's what this dealership told me the first time it happened and I brought the truck in to them. But, after they diagnosed it I got the good news that they are going to order me a new fan motor and that it would be covered by my extended warranty! I was actually shocked! It was to the point that I didn't want to go on any road trips because the noise would literally drive me insane! Anyways, I saw that the service guy had a Technical Service Bulletin on the problem and I asked him if I could have a copy of it so I could share it on here. So, to make a long story short...

November 18, 2009
Technical Service Bulletin: BLOWER MOTOR SQUEAL NOISE AT LOW AMBIENT TEMPERATURES
Models: '05-'10
"A newly designed blower motor has been made available to improve this condition."

Thank goodness they're finally making a new fan motor to remedy this annoying problem!
