    I hate to start another thread about this, but I sifted thru as many of the other threads as I could and couldn't find anything definitive to my situation. My truck: 2006 Tacoma Access Cab 4x4 6spd Manual

    The problem I'm having is that my truck squeals ALL the time unless I depress the clutch pedal. It seems like a lot of other drivers have the issue of the truck only squealing when the clutch is depressed, which would be the throw out bearing, but mine is the opposite. I believe it is also throw out bearing related, but I need a sanity check before I go throwing money at replacing something that may not actually be the problem.

    I've been seeing the PDM solution come up quite a bit, yet no link to the actual website, so here it is for anyone who still can't find them (since it took me awhile to narrow down who PDM was) http://www.pdmtsk.com/home.html

    For awhile I thought it was the belt or a pulley, but the belt has been replaced and I noticed that it is 100% clutch pedal related after some vigorous testing with my left foot. :D

    I don't think you're going to get an answer.

    It's most likely your throw out bearing and if your going to replace that you should go ahead and drop a clutch in it since it's already going to be apart

    Have the exact same problem, squeaky noise I can hear when parked or at a stop light in neutral, goes away when clutch is pressed in.

    Mine has been doing this for well over a year now or even longer. It is currently not a DD. Is this something I should be concerned about, or just keep driving? Truck has about 100k miles.

    I will search TW for some more info in this. Thanks for any input.
