    Hi everyone, I'm currently using my father's 2009 Tacoma 4x4 Double Cab V6 and started hearing an occasional rattling noise underneath the truck. When I got underneath, I found this loose. I suspect this is the source of the noise, but not sure what part this is and so can't look up part number.20200707_160839[1].jpg
    Just to be sure, I'm talking about that rusted bracket with the 2 rusted screws in the middle of the image. LOL

    Thanks.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That is the shift cable, looks like the mount stud weld came loose from the floor pan. Same thing happened to a buddy's truck. Just run a 10mm nut onto the second stud that is still good and that should hold it tight again.

    Thanks to all the replies. @JonathanH thanks for the diagram. Now, I'll look to tie that down with the 10mm nut. Is there anyway to reinstall the second bolt?

    That may not be main rattle so also look at the cat shield under the drivers side seat area those clamps always break and then check the entire metal/foil heat shields above the exhaust system always have rusted out washers and nuts that when gone or loose rattle a lot.

    My heat shields had perfect circles cut around the nuts. Fender washers sandwiched it tight again
