#48 of 57 Loud knocking sound under dash
Jan 20, 2008 (7:02 pm)
I own a 2005 Scion TC. In cold temps I have a loud knocking or clicking sound under the dashboard on the drivers side. Very irritating. How can I find out how to remove dash to check the problem..

I just had this fixed, it took me three years to figure this out, I had to literally force them to look at this issue but I was so convinced. thats exactly what it was.
Go to scionbuzz.com and put in thumping noise Scion TC, and there is an entire conversation about this proceedure including the mechanics name he used and his phone number. I literally gave it to my mechanic. it worked.
Its four pins that hold the windshield in and when it gets cold, one must come loose or something, not really sure but he fixed it with this exact service bulletin. Good luck. Im so happy to pass this information on to someone else, I went out of my way to hunt you down to relay this to you. GOOD LUCK!!!

Hi, I have the same problem, and specially when its first time in the morning if I go in reverse my driveway. I have researched and its the kind of pads you have, its nothing wrong with them, its just the material with these cold weathers make them do that noise. IF you go and check you brakes as I did they are fine. ITs just a weather condition which sucks I know.
hope it works for you.
I love my scion tc but it has couple weird problems. squecking noises coming from everwhere ...
