  1. 07 6 speed manual

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    If you're not good at it you may abuse the clutch a bit. Otherwise should be fine except if hauling a heavy load, you may want 1st back.
  2. REAR DIFF DRAIN PLUG SETTINGS 4 x 4 TRD OFF ROAD??

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Checking the 2005 FSM, looks like they hide it well, but its 36 ft lbf. (Was looking up crankcase earlier)
  3. Front receiver for 2015 that retains most of the clearance?

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Here are a couple of threads from the archives that talk about front receivers. Some of the pix are gone, but the brand names are there. Sorry this took so long, but since the website has been downgraded, the search still sucks, so it takes longer. I recall there being more out there, but...
  4. 2015 Bed cover-need a part.

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    It might be made by Bakflip. This is the current lineup. Maybe check with them. https://bakflip.com/v/toyota/tacoma/2019/

    Yeah, but I've got a HiLift jack and rock sliders, so why remove the wheel, that's at least 6x more work, one for each lug.
  6. Aftermarket side mirror heaters

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Here's a few ideas. The search here is now so fouled up I can't find any others. https://www.toyotanation.com/threads/heated-mirrors-for-2005-tacoma.102871/ https://www.toyotanation.com/threads/another-heated-mirror-diy-cheap.269420/...

    1 - 5 of 5 Posts carilc, the owners manual recommends 10 miles per month. We don't have enough rainy weather here to allow that. So it goes in alot when we have lots of rain, to make up for the drought months. There can be some corrosion of the switches inside the transfer case which can...
  8. Air conditioner works for a minute and then button starts blinking

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Here are some of the conditions that will stop the AC from working Evaporator outlet air temperature is too low. There is a marked difference between the compressor speed and the engine speed. (belt slippage) The refrigerant pressure is abnormally high or abnormally low. The engine speed is...

    Well, here it is, installed with minor pain. Clearance is tight for my hand and a wrench between the fender and the tire, jacking the body up a bit made the work much easier. Covers the seam where the old flap touched.
  10. Air conditioner works for a minute and then button starts blinking

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Blinking light means a problem. Forget if its charge (most likely based on your notes) or something else. No time to look through manual right now. Open the hood, watch the compressor, and have someone push the button, see if clutch pulls in, then kicks out after 30 seconds.
  11. My Tacoma is making the strangest Noise

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    I agree with yrffej, that sounds like the windshield noise other complained about. Try moving your phone around the perimeter of the windshield, see if its louder in one location. If not that, there was a few people talking about noise from the cab exhausts that relieve cabin pressure into...

  13. DIFFERENTIAL FLUID CHANGE 2008 Toyota Tacoma TRD Double Cab Pre Runner with Limited Slip Diff

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Following up on what moose and tacologist said. My 3rd party toyota specialty shop tried using their house standard, and it sucked. He replaced it with the Toyota stuff and it worked fine, and has continued to for 120k miles (with changes). I remind him every time to use the Toyota stuff.

    Just came back from a trip to Redding (100°F) and Lassen Volcanic National Park (60-80°) at up to 8500 ft elevation, with some washboard road time included (yay, run the 4WD and 4LO for giggles and exercise). 905 miles at speed varying from 5mph on dirt up to 85mph on various roads. Got back...
  15. tacoma no brake lights

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    I will have to crawl into the truck tomorrow and look at my switch. Drawings only show 2 pins with numbers. Crud, shoulda looked harder online, found it. Pins are numbered, when looking into the butt end of the switch, with the little locking tab up, as oriented per the switch in the link...
