    My drivers side window makes this clanking sound when I roll it up or down. It's almost like there's a loose screw or something because it makes some mild popping sound when I cycle it. Its difficult to explain but there's definitely something not right in the components that roll it up or down. Any suggestions???? It doesn't seem to get worse but it sounds terrible sometimes. I do offroad and maybe the vibration has loosened a screw or component. What do you guys think?

    I had the exact same noise last winter in my driver side window. The window eventually fell off the track and the glass then fell out. It was snowing and I was on the way to take my kid sliding. Wasn't happy but Toyota took care of it. It turned out the clips were broken and they replaced the glass and the clips.

    Dam, I wonder if I should take it down to toyota. I wish it was something I could see and fix. Were the clips in the door visible to where you could see what was broke without dismantling the door beyond just taking off the inside plastic cover?

    I would take it to Toyota before it gets more serious. No the clips werent visible at all even when the whole glass was out. I do think the door panel has to be removed to check it out.

    mine is starting to rattle as well, but only when it is rolled partially down and I hit bumps, but it is loose for sure.

    I remember last year the mechanic telling me that the clips failing was a pretty common problem with these trucks. In fact they had a Sport in the Garage the same time with the same problem as mine. I have power windows, not sure if you guys have them or not. Could be different with manual roll down windows, I'm not sure.

    I know this is an older thread but a friend of mine is having the same problem with his '07. The driver's side is already broken where the front side of the window has fallen inside and now the passenger side is starting the make the popping sound.

    How common is this? Is this something I have to look forward to on my '06?

    I should have replied to this when I found the fix for this problem. Oh well better late than never. I took the plastic panel off the inside of the door and found by looking up into the access holes that there was a screw which had come loose. It was part of the track assembly and located about in the middle of the door. I was only able to gain access to it when the window was rolled down about four inches. Tightened it up with a crescent (major B*tch) and everything has been fine ever since. There's a few screws in there which this could happen to I suppose but mine was in the middle and everytime I rolled up the window it would catch the frame work of the door and make the pop sound. Not anymore! Hope this helps
