    brought my truck in bc the blower motor was squeeling, not squeeking, squeeling. and also told them about a vibe in the wheel at 50mph - is not tire related, wheel DOESNT shake its a harmonic vibe like diff bearing or wheel bearing. truck has 26k miles on it was new in december.

    so i wait about an hour, and out comes the service person who tries to tell me the blower motor wasnt broken, it needs a new cabin air filter - and showed me the filter. filter was fucking clean. then the tech tries to blame vibe on my tires saying they are way too big for truck (285/70/17). these people are honestly a bunch of tahds.

    That's just how they roll, try to find any excuse they can think up to avoid fixing anything.:cool: The dealer told me my blower would be in 3 weeks and that was 8 months ago. I just bought one from amazon and fixed it myself. I hate anything to do with dealers and their constant BS.

    Yeah, some of them are retarded...I once had a dealer tell me that I couldn't change to bigger tires because it would change the geometry of the truck and void the warranty!

    :laughing: They avoid your main concerns and try to rip you off by selling you an air filter. Sounds about right...

    What is a squeeling blower motor? I might be having a similar problem. When i get up to 70mph i start hearing a squeeling noise and it sounds like its coming from the dash area. Its been doing it since about this time last year. But it rarely ride on the interstate and it stopped for a while until recently.

    yea it is grappone. they are such lazy pricks. i mean they hear the blower motor squeek, then blame it on the filter, and try to sell me one for 30 bucks. i tell them no, argue with the tech for 10 minutes, and all of the sudden its not the filter anymore and whattaya know theyre replacing the blower motor. fawkin people.

    Its their job to deny any warranty work and upsell you for extra. Hence why my truck had not seen a dealer for any work for few years now.
    Sometime ago I realized car quality improves if you don't visit dealer

    sounds about right. lol @ tires and then a cabin filter being the issue.

    fuggin dealers, the one and only time I see them is to buy the truck and
    that's it. I don't even use the free service they offer for oil change or
    anything else.

    partially wrong, they dont deny warranty work, because they get reimbursed well by the corporation i.e. toyota

    so anyways they replaced the blower motor, and told me my tires were too big - and were very badly chopped... which is weird because i have no shake or shimmy and my BFG Mud Terrain KM2s are basically new (7000 miles). they just blamed everything on my lift kit and told me tacomas are made for the road - and when you try to lift them they are junk. what a bunch of scrotes.

    That's probably the windshield seal. Press on the glass hard near the mirror while it's happening and see if it goes away.
