    Hey guys. Anyone have a part # for the plastic plug that goes into the rear cab? It's located in-between the cab and bed.
    Just a little bit bigger than a quarter.
    I went by Auto Zone, but the generic plugs they had were to big.

    Have a napa close by? They usually have a selection of body plugs.

    No, I have not been by Napa. If I don't order them from Toyota I'll try them Saturday.

    @jammer do you have a toyota pick n' pull nearby? I'd go there before ordering a new OEM part.

    It looked like the part you need isn't available anymore from @Gunshot-6A's 2nd link... unless maybe you get the whole panel, but maybe I missed it.

    Try a mom & pop hardware store. The one in my town has a great selection of body plugs. And you can buy just one not the whole package.

    That "Plug" is actually a one way vent to allow release of cabin air pressure.

    ... post #11 ... " Plug " to release cabin air pressure ?!? So, my ears don't "pop" when I close the door with all the windows rolled up tight ? How thoughtful. But now when I dump the truck , deep in a pond , it may sink 100%. With a solid plug, no air out, no water in,I should float. I'd rather save a buck and paddle to shore.

    J A Y! The man of the hour and tower of power. That was picture of the one on drivers side. There looks to be a total of three or four on the back of the rear cab.
