    Since delivery of my 07 Pre-Runner, with cold engine especially, there is a buzz from the plastic air filter housing. Took it all apart today looking for interference and even placed thin foam at hinge points to tighten the fit, but still deep buzz, especially when backing at slow speed.

    No bees, but looking around here tonight convinced me to pull that secondary air filter.

    Ensure that all the mounting hardware is installed and tight. Mine had a buzz and the dealer had to add a missing spacer of some sort that was missing from the hardware.
