    Hey all, I am having a squeaky rattling noise coming from the dash/engine compartment when I have the A/c on. When I turn it off the sound goes away.

    Has anyone experienced the same thing? Just started happening yesterday. This is on a 07 taco, 24k miles so it's still under warranty. If it's a quick fix I would rather fix it myself than bring it to the dealership.


    Thanks!

    My 09 is doing the same thing but it only makes the sound when the fan is on the first or second setting. Off or high has no noise. I am currently at the stealership and having it looked at. I will update when I find out what they say.

    im amazed at the quality of service work from toyota dealers.

    im use to walking in to my chevy dealer and hearing them say, "cannot replicate conditions".

    So i opened up the blower motor and found it had become a little store room for acorns.. took them out and runs find.. with further inspection they made it to the air filter as well.. i think the truck was stored for a bit before i got it.. thanks for the tips..
