    None yet. Bed cover, brush guard, leveling kit coming soon.
    Sounds like my blower or fan in the passenger floor board is hitting something making a clicking noise. Anybody else got this and know a fix?

    Mine squeaks and it's really annoying.
    But when I have the fan on in general, not just the heater.

    Yep, common problem. Dealer will change it out with a new one, but chances are will do it again. My 2nd one is doing it again.

    Deevon, do you have the new part from 2-3 months ago? A new TSB just came out.

    OP - if you're under warranty, bring it to the dealer. Make sure you get the new part. I have it in mine and no issues yet.

    I doubt it, I had my changed over a year ago. Haven't had the time to take it back and get it changed again.

    This is the answer I've been looking for. Was hoping I wouldn't have to leave it over night. :thumbsup:

    Is there a tsb number I need to bring up? Or just take it in and tell them what it's doing?

    I hope so, one of these days I'm going to take mine in AGAIN, and get it changed out. That gets pretty annoying at times. I must be getting somewhat used to it though, some times I don't hear it, and my wife or son will point it out to me. lol

    Only bothers me at night on the way home after a long day. Then it sounds like a jack hammer.

    I should have said just blower on but it has been cold every since I got my truck so all I know is heat.

    Similar story hear. For a year I cringed as I turned the heater/air conditioner fan on low. The squeaking rub drove me mad. During my 20k service I mentioned it and before I could get the words out of my mouth the service rep had a replacement part on order. :D The rep went on to say how virtually every newer Tacoma has this problem and that they were surprised that Toyota had not done a recall. :confused: The fix is in and I'm soooo happy with it.
