    Time to call my dealer! Good timing too with my warranty closing in! But my dealer has always treated me very well so I am not worried.

    Hahah, mine has done that since the day I picked it up from the stealership over three years ago. I imagine it is just a plastic bushing that costs $3.49, and takes about 30 minutes to install. Just never been that bored/cared that much. I once fluid filmed the pivot point, and that took care of it for about a year.

    Ya I want to see if they can adjust it so it engages a little before the pedal is fully out. So this is an excuse to get them to work on it while I casually slip in "While you are down there, would you mind adjusting it a little bit?"

    It's hydraulic, so other than changing the pivot point, I don't think it is possible. It's not like the old school cable clutches.

    (might be more involved than it is worth)

    Is it the dash, or the blower fan? I noticed that my blower fan got noisy after my windshield got replaced.....did you get your windshield replaced? (speaking of that, I got a nasty stone chip on the drive down here to Mississippi from Canada on Thursday night/Friday morning)

    its the fan. Everytime I run the AC or heat it has this chirping noise that gets on my nerves so badly. As soon as I pulled into the dealer last time for a new battery it stopped.

    Go figure

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    My truck did both of those things. Got the clutch pedal fixed, but the fan stopped when I brought it in to them. I got them to write a note for the file, but its doing it again so i need to have em check it out again. That chirping is just so damn annoying.
