    2009 TRD Sport developed annoying squeak in the dash after approx. 8k miles, all seems tight and impossible for me to locate - any suggestions?

    I had one for over a year.........took it to the dealer twice..........no luck......say its normal on uneven roads (wtf)......then I narrowed it down to my hood. Turns out one of the bolts on the hood latch assembly was loose causing my hood to shake back and forth causing the problem............good luck!

    sounds like it is located in the left half of the dash, worse when the sun shines and the temp rises above 70*

    I had more of a rattling in my coin tray vs. a squeak. But just this past weekend I popped it out, attached a bunch of pieces of adhesive felt including over the tabs, and popped it back in. Worked like a charm.
