    I might just take the truck to the stealership on friday to fix the sqeak in the front wheels and the squeak in the Blower motor and to replace the gas pedal per recall. Depending on what is covered under my bumper to bumper warranty I methinks that the blower should definitely be covered and the squeak should be too unless the 5100's voided that warranty.

    Nope have a TSB installed. But I got under the truck and pushed on the lower part of the axel I guess that holds the wheel and could feel it vibrate as it squeaked. I tried WD 40 and it didnt help at all.

    There isn't a recall on the Tacoma for the gas pedal.

    I have developed an annoying squeak under the front when I accelerate and brake.....and turn....lol. I sprayed some lubricant but no better. When the truck is stopped I can make it reproduce that sound by pushing on the front. Dunno wtf.

    :eek: You mean I went 2.5 years with a squeaky blower motor, and instead of fixing it when I first heard it and saying that they heard nothing, and there is a TSB out for it, I ran around annoyed out of my mind???? That is Bull Crap! ugh... I hate dealerships.

    x2 I hate dealerships too. I mean....Really, really, bad. I have had similar situations where they were totally not going to fix a problem, and started walking away until I said "I heard there was something called a TSB about this". WTF? Cock suckers.

    Nope no new news. All I know is that the dealership here was going to charge me $189 diagnostic and then what it takes to fix it after that.

    Took mine to the dealership today. They were very helpful and told me there's a TSB for the rear springs squeaking. They ordered lubricating pads and are going to install them for me when they come in. I love my dealership, they have never given me any issues when I can replicate problems for them. They usually tell me about TSBs, not the other way around.

    Its my front that is squeaking. not the rear. I have heard some loud noises as I go over bumps coming from the rear of the truck. I have the rear spring TSB already on mine though.

    You could douse the whole front end with silicone spray. What isn't needed will just wash off, and it doesn't deteriorate rubber like WD-40 will.
