You are in the Toyota Tacoma
What is this discussion about?
Toyota Tacoma, Truck

Yes, it is the pedal. According to what little of the TSB is readily available, the fix requires a new pedal and U-bushing. The TSB also specifically says that adding grease will not fix the problem.
This is what I found:
"Clutch pedal squeak in your 1995-99 Toyota Tacoma? On inline Four models, replace the pedal bracket (PN 55107-04010). On V6s, clean the grease from the torsion spring, and then replace the pedal (PN 31310-35050) and U-bushing (PN 90389-05017) if the spring support is worn. Don't add more grease. TSB TC005-99."
If I take the truck to a dealer with this information, are they obligated to fix it?
#470 of 2067 '89 pickup (22RE) "check engine" light gives code 25
May 29, 2002 (6:55 pm)
I got my Toyota back from a bit of work about a week ago, and the "check engine" light came on during the drive home today. Jumper-ing the E1 and T terminals in the connector box give me code "25" which my owner's manual tells me is,"Fuel Metering Device (lean)".
Can someone give me a heads-up of what's happening here? I'm not *the* mechanic, but have some tools and can cipher out some things.
Opinions or advice are appreciated.

If you go over to Edmund's forum " Maintenance & Repair " there are plenty of knowledgeable mechanics who will most likely help with the fuel problem.

My 1998 squeaks too. It is a TRD 4X4 ext cab V-6 five speed, and it doesn't do it all the time. There is no set pattern as to when it does it either. I find that if you turn the radio up some, you can't hear it. Seriously, if you find out any more on the TSB I'd like to hear back. Other than this, I've got 147K with no complaints.

Sounds like you go the exact same truck as me. I've noticed the squeaking acts up with changes in the weather. At around 30K miles, a dealer did install new bushings in it and that alleviated the problem for a while, but now it's back. But they didn't put in the new pedal as the TSB outlines. All attempts on my part to lubricate the assembly to stop the squeaking have been unsuccesful.
Dang, how do you have 147K miles on your truck already? I'm approaching 60K, and I thought I had a lot of miles...

TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN
This is NOT a recall! Just some instructions to Toyota mechanics on how to fix a problem. Obviously, mechanics tried using grease before to quiet the squeak. Guess that didn't work.....
If your trucks are still under warranty, the warranty may cover the cost of the repair. otherwise, you will have to pay for the fix.
#477 of 2067 Clutch pedal squeek
May 31, 2002 (3:30 pm)
In my '95 V6 4x4 the plastic bushing in the pedal arm where the spring goes thru broke and fell out at 30k.I replaced it for under $3,but it took 2 hours in a very uncomfortable position.The dealer wanted $80 to do it.I would have paid if I knew what it took.The new bushing didn't last as long as the first.
It's not covered under warranty.
