    I don't think so, because they have to do the check first before they can perform the fix.

    the check being having the squeak when the clutch isn't pressed and not having the squeak when the clutch is pressed

    So I took the X into ServcoAuto here in Hawaii. The service advisor I had was a really chill/cool guy. Chatted it up a bit since he was a former tacoma owner. Talked about few of my mods and whatnot. Luckily when they get it all situated the parts are only in the warehouse in town. So no need to wait a few days for shipping. Hoping to get my X back Tuesday or Wednesday the LATEST.

    *crossing Fingers* since we all know how the stealership can manage to take so long for stuff.

    *UPDATE*** 03/21/2011 @ 5:19PM ******

    Everything was confirmed, the TSB will be performed on my X. Down side of it is that It's gonna be about a week for the parts to come in. Got the appointment set for 8AM Tuesday, 3/29/2011. Plus side of it is that I got the X back and also got a FREE wash :D

    UPDATE!!

    So last week they installed the new parts, but they decided to replace the entire Transmission when the tech reported that it still had a bad 5th gear grind. They let me take it home as they were waiting for the trans to come in from Canada :canada:. I drove it around and besides the grind in 5th, it really felt a lot smoother and seemed to hook better. High revs from first to second went in Smooth...then from 3rd to forth, no probs as I had nothing but harsh grinds before the TSB.

    So the Trans arrived Monday, but I wasnt able to drop off the X till late Tuesday and picked it up this afternoon. NO MORE 5TH GEAR GRIND!!!!:rockon::rockon::rockon:.........so far. I wasnt able to drive it around all day as I had to drop it off and run around all in my work truck, but from the lil bit of spirited driving i was doing on the way home made me fall in love with it all over again. It feels like it is actually putting the power to the ground again. I havent been able to really enjoy it since all the BS with the trans and was just affraid something was going to break. My biz is starting to pick up, but hopefully I will be able to take it out this weekend and really get into it. Its quiet.....no chatter, and NO SQUEAL.....so far.

    This has nothing to do with a squeaky clutch pedal correct?

    any of you guys that had your assembly fixed under the tsb have or had a short shifter installed and did you catch any words about it when they dropped your trans? you think the dealer can associate the ss with the squeak even though the shifter has nothing to do with the clutch? i am taking my truck in when i get home

    To be on the safe side, if it were me, I'd just pull the SS until I got it back. :top:

    I have the NST SSK, They have never given me any trouble about it, but I think it would just depend on the dealer.

    Thanks, sure enough the bolt at the top of the shaft was so loose, i could turn the shaft with my hand. I tightened the bolt up so the shaft had no play and no more squeaks. You the man.

    Alright, got the truck back today. Thankfully they were able to complete it in one day. My clutch pedal isn't as stiff as before, liking the feeling.. Glad the sound is gone. Hopefully this is a correct permanent fix.

    Also I took it in with my URD SS still on. They gave me no problems about it. I'd recommend being on the safe side and taking your SS off if you have the time to do so.
