I have a 2011 Tacoma access cab 4x4 4.0L 6spd manual transmission and factory tow package. The clutch pedal creaked when engaged from the day I bought it. I looked for TSB's but couldn't find one for my model year. I finally got the dealer to fix the problem yesterday under warranty. They replaced the clutch pedal and the master cylinder assembly. When I drove it home today, the clutch felt weak. When I took my foot off the clutch, it stopped moving at a lower point than my old clutch did. I'm concerned that the dealer put in a clutch pedal or master cylinder assembly that was not intended to be used on a truck with my set up. Does anyone know if a truck with a tow package requires different parts than one without? If so, how can I tell if they installed the correct parts?
I'm not sure if they fixed the problem yet, as the old one creaked when it was hot outside (and consequently inside the truck). Even then, when the AC cooled the truck (really cool), the creaking was reduced.
