Fan noise when heater on low.

Sounds like my blower or fan in the passenger floor board is hitting something making a clicking noise. Anybody else got this and know a fix?

Mine squeaks and it's really annoying.
But when I have the fan on in general, not just the heater.

Mine does it with the fan on low, whether heat or a/c is on. Start here and read this might help you out. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...p-low-fix.html

Yep, common problem. Dealer will change it out with a new one, but chances are will do it again. My 2nd one is doing it again.

Deevon, do you have the new part from 2-3 months ago? A new TSB just came out.

OP - if you're under warranty, bring it to the dealer. Make sure you get the new part. I have it in mine and no issues yet.

I doubt it, I had my changed over a year ago. Haven't had the time to take it back and get it changed again.

This is the answer I've been looking for. Was hoping I wouldn't have to leave it over night.

Is there a tsb number I need to bring up? Or just take it in and tell them what it's doing?

I hope so, one of these days I'm going to take mine in AGAIN, and get it changed out. That gets pretty annoying at times. I must be getting somewhat used to it though, some times I don't hear it, and my wife or son will point it out to me. lol

Only bothers me at night on the way home after a long day. Then it sounds like a jack hammer.

I should have said just blower on but it has been cold every since I got my truck so all I know is heat.

Fan noise 2011...warranty fix

Similar story hear. For a year I cringed as I turned the heater/air conditioner fan on low. The squeaking rub drove me mad. During my 20k service I mentioned it and before I could get the words out of my mouth the service rep had a replacement part on order. The rep went on to say how virtually every newer Tacoma has this problem and that they were surprised that Toyota had not done a recall. The fix is in and I'm soooo happy with it.

I've got a 2011 with 25,000 miles and I've noticed mine is making that noise. Guess a trip to the dealership is in order
