There is no tsb for '12 only for past years. it has been the same sunroof design for many years and the concerns are normally due to consistant issues.I took my 2012 TCH XLE to the dealer thjis morning and asked them if they knew of a TSB on this popping noise on teh passenger side roof. They said they did not. Has anyone been able to identify if one exists or has an update on this issue???
i see that you're from LA too. which dealership did you go to?Hey guys. Just bought a 2012 Camry XLE V6 about 2 weeks ago and unfortunately noticed the same moonroof noise issue. Was really hesitant about bringing it into the dealer to have them take off my headliner -- mainly bc I was very skeptical that things wouldn't be put back correctly with such a big job (universal Home Link, airbags and sensors, safety connect, side panel trims, moonroof, etc..).
I asked to speak to the head technician first to see if they were even aware of the issue with the Camrys and if they had indeed fixed similar issues. Luckily he was very knowledgable about the Camrys moonroof problems dating back to even the 09s. He said it was a simple fix as the MOONROOF ASSEMBLY was never torqued correctly. However, he did state that it was a big job (2 days) bc they needed to remove the entire headliner and all the parts connected.
Just got my car back yesterday and so far so good. I am a fairly detailed guy, so when I got the car back initially, I did a full inspection of all the functionality of the car as it relates to the roof-- moonroof/open/tilt, safety connect, home link, even dome lights. Everything was pretty good-- I noticed a minor misaligned plastic trim near the door sills that I had the technician redo (took him about 3 minutes) and the headliner seems a tad-bit looser than I remembered, but not a big deal. Best part-- no more noise over bumps/driveways. But of course it's only been a day, so I'll keep everyone posted. I just thought I give feedback for those having similar issues and contemplating whether to get fixed or not.
thanks for the info. hows the noise so far? has it come back?I went to Frontier Toyota in Valencia. Had the Head Tech named Jimmy check it out, but Greg was the Lead tech that worked on the car. Very pleased. Also don't forget to ask for a free rental bc they will need to keep it for 2 days.
