    Let the OCD go guys. I do the same thing, enjoy your trucks, if you bought something else you'd find flaws with that as well. I can find flaws with anything and I'll bet anyone I can find a manufacturing imperfection on a Bugatti.

    I've been bitching about this to the dealer since the day I got my truck. I've had it in 5 times for the same squeak. Never once did they make it better, only worse buy adjusting the striker in too much. I've tried EVERYTHING to fix this. To prove it to them, I finally ripped the rubber trim off my Mom's 05 and put it on mine, no squeak.. Then put mine back on, squeak. They still said 'its the door striker" as being the problem.

    Needless to say, I didn't buy that crap and raised hell with Toyota Corp.

    Due to this they are flying a Toyota tech from their HQ to look at this issue since I won't give up on it. I take my truck in Tuesday. I've subbed this form and I'll post what the say.

    I do highly suggest using Raamat or some sound deadening material to reduce the rattles. I used insolite from Raamaudio to wrap around all my cables, and followed his directions to the 'T'. My truck is very, very quiet now other than that damn squeak and the head rest rattles. Other than that, no rattles at all. It's a lot of work, took about 20-25hrs to finish the truck but worth it if you like a quiet truck.

    Thanks I'll give it a shot. Tried a few things, stuff helps for short period of time. It's way worse in the winter than the summer, but still happens year round.

    Either way, it shouldn't be making this noise. My moms 05, never did bought new. Dad's 08 never did, bought it new. My 2011, does.. Loaner 2012 I had, did it as well. Moose1988's 08(maybe 09) doesn't make that noise either.

    I'll try that.
    Funny thing, like I said, it only squeaks after the cabin heats up in the sun while I'm at work and goes away after a half mile or so. Like the trim and weather stripping "find themselves" after a few bumps.

    nice to add to this old thread, but yes..having the same issues in my 2014 DCLB with 8500 miles. Front passenger seat rattles (does not have the fold flat feature, its a sport). It rattles where the seatbelt latch connects to the hinge of the seat and started at about 4k miles. Annoying as hell because it will stop if you put some weight on the seat.
    Brought it to get it checked at the dealer today during my 2nd service, they easily replicated it then compared it to another 2014.
    He basically said if it sounds like this on another 2014, then its a characteristic of the truck that they cannot fix. Lucky for me, it didn't happen on the other truck, so a new seat is being ordered for me! I just hope they install it right. It's an expensive warranty claim that they had to open a ticket with toyota corporate.

    I also have issues with the weather seals making squishy sticky sounds when driving. I can make the sound with my hand moving it around also. Dealer heard it and replaced the entire stripping. Sad to say the sound is still there so it must just be a "characteristic" of tacomas.

    I'm hoping the new seat will be a good fix. Other than that..cabin rattles as is should..doors and panels rattle here and there.
