    Alright, so my throwout bering is whistling some when my clutch is depressed and Dusty (my 09 Taco) is sitting in neutral. The dealership claims that if there is a clutch problem it is not covered under the normal warranty. I did not purchase any extra warranty because 1) I truely believe most of them are just another way for dealerships to make money, and 2) I had faith my taco would not have any issues. So with that said, I am planning on getting it fixed out of my own pocket. Does anybody have any pointers on how I should go about this? Like, at this point I am not entirely impressed with my local dealership at all for an array of reasons. Do I have to have them replace it? How can I order the correct part and do I have to order it from the local dealership? How difficult would it be to do it myself in a garage and what all things would I need to ensure the garage is equipped with? I know I am talking about pulling the transmission obviously and that in itself can be a pain in the @*%, but I have a sinking sensation that the local dealership will rape me of money.

    Id try another dealer, if it's under warranty they will have to do it. As for doing it yourself, you need to drop the tranny so it's not that simple.

    its should contain an apostrophe, thus making it the contraction of it is, not the possessive pronoun form you used.

    its != it's

    I can't help you on this, but I am going to subscribe to this thread due to my Dad's 2007 FJ Cruiser's throwout bearing chirping as well.

    Go to a different dealer...there's a TSB out to fix this. I had the same BS from a dealer here in atlanta, and then I went to the closest dealer to my place and they acknowledged it without batting an eye.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Mine has been squeaking for 40k+ miles now. Spend your money on something else. If you do get a dealer to cover and replace it, they are just going to replace it with the same defective part again and the problem will just come back.

    My old accord had a squeaky throwout bearing and I drove it over 100k miles with the squeak and never had any problems.

    I have yet to see anyone post where the bearing actually failed and left someone stranded. Only people annoyed with the squeak and wasting time in the repair shop for a non critical issue.

    I had the TSB for this done 400 miles ago. All is quiet for now. The last fix lasted 8k, which was a replacement of the same shitty parts. Supposedly, this is a fix that will last. The best part is it's covered until 60k. If squeeks again, I'll go with the JDM kit.

    So I took it to the same dealer and got a different dude. One that appeared to actually give a shit about customer service. They are taking Dusty in on Monday and they are going to replace the clutch for free. But like one of you said, yeah they probabley will replace it with the same clutch and the problem will come back. lol.

    But they tried to get $200 extra out of me to basically just replace the spark plugs and I saw no point since I just replaced them a little over a year ago. I learned that the fuel filter is internal and connected to the fuel pump...which in short basically tells me that whenever the fuel pump finally decides to go, i have to spend more money to replace the whole thing. LOL.

    Some stuff never ceases to amaze me. :jerkoff:

    Sounds good that your getting it fixed. But on the Spark plugs they should be replaced at every 30,000 miles. This is pretty critical from what I have seen for these trucks. And Ive changed both of our tacomas at 30,000 and they have had quite a bit of wear showing.
    I have the V6 manual and 68,000 and so far no squeak other than in the clutch pedal sometimes. But no worries about it. Good luck with getting it fixed
