#11 of 14 Steering column hole cover
Jul 17, 2008 (9:31 am)
This is for a 2002 Sequioa.
I keep hearing this noise coming from the engine conpartment near the bottom of the floor in line with the steering column. Took it to the dealer I was told I needed to replace the steering column hole cover. Is this a common occurence?, I did a search and was not able to find any similar problems.

Not sure if I have the same problem, but it is the same location. I have a 2003 Sequoia which has been having a RANDOM piercing or screeching noise coming from the floor near the brake pedal. Sometimes it is hard to tell where it is coming from but the Toyota svc. mgr. who witnessed it, thought this was the location the sound was coming from. After leaving it at Toyota dealer for 4 days, they said they could find nothing wrong and was never able to get sound to be heard while they test drove it! Each time I leave and drive away, it starts up to beat the band! At times it seems like it begins or ends when pressing on the brake pedal. At other times, it seems to come from the gas pedal.....hard to tell. I also have had it continue for a few seconds after the engine was shut off! Car seems to run just fine but noise is very annoying and must be stopped. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
#13 of 14 2002 Sequoia Grinding Noise
Nov 07, 2008 (7:20 pm)
I park my Sequoia on a steep driveway. Recently, when backing up the driveway and starting to turn onto the flat street, I hear a grinding or perhaps a slipping noise. Once I make it onto the flat pavement, the noise stops. Sometimes the tracking lights come on, sometimes not. The track lights have also come on while driving around town in the past week. Am I dealing with a computer problem, wheel bearing problems, both, or neither?
#14 of 14 Wheel Bearing problems?
Nov 10, 2008 (5:43 am)
I have an 2004 Sequoia with 44,000 miles on it. I have noticed a lot of "road" noise in the front end and took it to my Firestone Dealer. They said the right front wheel bearing had gone bad. Is this a common occurance with a car with so few miles on it? Also, has anybody tried to replace the wheel bearing on their own? Firestone quoted me 450.00 to do it, but I have found the parts (Toyota parts) online for under 75.00.
