    Got it installed yesterday morning, took about 45 minutes. So far no chirping!! We'll see how long it lasts.

    I too have the humping crickets. On all fan speeds except 4 (Blasting High). I am currently on a waiting list for the sound insulation kit, was told it would be in Mid March..... Yippy.....

    Now, Im tempted to do EyeDoc's fix and tighten the 2 adjustment screws to get me through the time being. Here's my issue though, tried removing 3 phillips screws. No good. Blower wont budge. Also tried pulling wire harness out from blower, also no good, its like it is glued in there tight.

    Its driving me crazy.....

    What kind of sound insulation kit? Is it designed specifically for this application?

    Glad I found this. Two lowest settings produce a rage-inducing tick. It's easily drowned out by the stereo, but from reading it seems as it will only get worse.

    Had planned on removing the blower housing and looking for a leaf or something, had no idea there was a TSB and that the part is made by... GM :facepalm:

    Go ahead and clean the blower...could help. You can even check it fairly well with a flashlight just by removing the cabin air filter and looking in the filter door.

    Well here we are 6 months later...starting to cool off here in Chicago...and I think the chirping is starting to return on the new fan. Ugh.

    It's been a while since I've search the postings about this so maybe there's some new info. I shouldn't have to take the thing apart and lube it every year, who wants to do that.

    Maybe I'll just make Toyota replace it once a year to keep the warranty on the motor in place. Maybe that will give them some more time to solve the problem. I'm tired of saying maybe though.

    Stupid chirping birds in the dash!:mad:

    Just had mine replaced last week.
    I brought it into the dealer and they tried to tell me it was some leaves and debris. I told them that is not what it sounded like to me. Didn't even get a mile down the road when it started again. Needless to say they ended up replacing the blower after I came right back with a pissed off look on my face. :mad:
    The service manager gave me a free oil change coupon for my troubles. Guess I'll add it to my stack of ones I already have.
