I have a 2005 Tacoma and have been hearing a rattle coming from the front
near the dash / windshield area. Today while I was checking the fluids
under the hood I noticed what appears to be a missing clip that holds
the black plastic piece under the wipers to the inside lip of the
fender. There is a hole there with nothing in it, I'm not sure if it
fell out, or if that's the way it should be. Can anyone take a look at
there truck and see if there is a clip or something holding the black
plastic piece under the wipers to the inside lip of the fender. I have
attached a picture of the hole in question. Thanx

I looked and yes there is a screw that holds it in place. Its the type that has a plastic insert with screw.

I finally found and fixed my anoying passangerside dash rattle. It was very loud, and would interfear with talking, music, etc... :cursin:
Especially when driving over speed bumps, rumble strips, and pot holes.:headbang:

I loosened the two main bolts holding the airbag bracket, pulled the bracket towards the passanger seat, and re-tightened. all this was done behind the glove box.
It was so simple it seemed ridiculous.:clap: :eek:hyeah:

That was over a month ago, and I havent had a rattle yet.
Yes I had the cab mount TSB, and the rear spring TSB, and they also worked.

:eek:t:
I returned from the dealer this morning with a piece of paper saying they were ordering new exhaust manifolds, and a new rear bumper. The original bumper is rusting on the underside pretty badly.
I do a lot of saltwater fishing, but the truck only drops the boat off at the ramp.
Once i'm home i ussually pressure wash the truck, fishing gear and the boat, to remove any salt.
