    I noticed on my way home last night a really loud squeaky noise coming from the passenger-side dash. I stopped and took off the glove box... still there. I inspected the mud flap at that corner thinking maybe it broke or was rubbing... nope. I took out the air filter and stuck my hand in there to feel around... nothing.

    It sounds like a loose piece of plastic flapping loudly against other plastic. Occasionally squeaky. Varies depending on how rough the road is.

    I have no idea what this is!

    Mine only does it when the hood is open or popped open.

    FYI, I finally figured out my squeak... it was a loose bolt holding down the passenger seat. I only figured it out because it didn't happen when someone was in the passenger seat. Problem solved!

    I have a squeak in my dash on the passenger side but I only hear it in when the inside is really cold. It goes away once it warms up. Any ideas for a fix?

    My only squeak at the moment is my clutch pedal. I know the manuals are supposed to shift better at 5k miles, and mine definitely is, but the pedal started squeaking bad yesterday. Time to get the pedal assembly all greased up tomorrow.

    I've got a squeak in my driver side dash. I think it might be my steering column. When I drop my steering wheel adjusting lever it gets better. Doesn't go away, but it does get less frequent. Anybody else squeak on the driver side?

    Have a 2007 crewcab, SB, TRD Sport, Auto. When the sun warms up my dash while parked during the day and then I leave the office, I hear a popping / squeak coming from the front top dash area. I think it may be between the windshield and dash.

    Any ideas on how to solve this?

    BTW - I went from a Lexus RX330 to my Taco and I love it!!!
