    Enquired with the dealer about the intermediate shaft TSB and the possibility of having it done to my Tacoma.

    He said when I bring it in "they can visually tell if it is needed."

    Maybe a silly question but how can they tell? Particular signs of wear?

    Thanks

    I have a brand new 2010 and with 2000 miles on her I tried out an old dirt road with some very light ruts and felt some pronounced side to side slop in the steering wheel. Called the dealer and took the truck in, service call was 5 minutes and they told me I needed the new shaft. I assume they just looked because they had no time to road test the thing. Major improvement after the change so do not hesitate to take it back for the TSB fix.

    Well I got the TSB done today. Seems to be better, steering seems more solid.

    But as I was leaving the dealership I noticed the airbag light was on! Went back to the dealer, literally around the block. Looks like the clock spring is bad according to diagnostics. Going back on Tuesday for this.

    This evening I noticed the truck's horn and passenger side airbag also isn't working.
