    I got a 06 Tacoma with the 6 speed tranny. My throwout bearing squeals n I've already replaced it 2. Pretty sure it's being caused by the shaft the throwout bearing rides on being to small. Just wondering if anyone has ever ha this problem, if so wat did y'all do?

    I'll be nice, but be ready for a shitstorm. There's a bunch of threads on this already. I think there is a TSB out for it now, or you can buy the URD kit that uses a steel sleeve that goes over the pilot bearing shaft which will stop the squeak completely.

    09 Tacoma was making a chirping or squeaking noise at idle which stoppedafter depressing the clutch pedal. It was diagnosed as the throw out bearing. Ilet the dealership know that I'd researched the issue online and that it seemedto be a chronic problem with these vehicles. Without mentioning this, I'm notconvinced the dealership would have looked into any further. Before the dealerresearched the TSB, they said the warranty department would not cover the throwout bearing because it's looked at as wear and tear after about 10k (plus orminus) miles. After finding the TSB, the warranty department covered it. I wasglad to hear that the $1300 estimate (entire clutch kit replacement includingclutch plate resurface) got reduced to a $50 deductible!! A member reported onanother thread that his warranty was up, but the dealership cut the labor inhalf since there was a TSB out for the issue. They replaced the slave cylinderwith one that is sized differently than the original part, the throw outbearing, and maybe one or two other items.
    Here's a thread to read concerning manual transmissions that also covers the throw out bearing issue:
