    That is the exact place where my creak is coming from. Dealer ordered a new part under warranty.

    The service tech called it the Wiper Cowl. It's the plastic piece between the hood and the windshield, from which the wiper posts stick out of.

    So, the dealership replaced the wiper cowl, and...it did nothing. Squeak still present.

    They're sending it to the body shop to reseal the windshield. Honestly, at this point, I think they're just guessing. I really hope it gets resolved. The squeak is very loud, and is driving me crazy.

    These are just squeaky trucks. I've got a new rattle around my shift column now.

    There is a Toyota Service Bulletin regarding this, old but still relevant. See below. A fellow member had a 2016 Tundra, he snipped the passenger stopper clip on the windshield and he said it worked. I don't know if this applies to you but you can look at PDF.

    That's actually the next thing they're going to do. They're going to re-seal the windshield, which involves taking the windshield off and playing around with those 4 posts that locate the windshield. The dealerships's bodyshop is going to perform the service.

    I think your right but my snapping and crackling noise seems to be coming from the TPPS camera to the right of the piece you are holding. I took mine off like you did but it did not make a difference. I wonder if that TPPS slides off so i can have a look.

    The 02’ is as quiet as the day she rolled off the lot. Nice fitment on everything still, except for the window track bolts needing tightening due to a rattle when partially rolled down. Easy fix with a 10mm socket.

    My newer Tundra buddies complain about these same squeaks as you guys.

    I've got a 2014 Tundra SR5 with 76,000 miles and its making a high pitched squeak coming from the passenger side foot well area under the dash or behind the dash. It only makes the noise when driving on rough roads that vibrate the truck. I can hit a speed bump and hear nothing, but vibrations or quick oscillations will almost always produce the sound. I've removed the glove box and all surrounding panels and I still cant figure out what's causing it. I've had a friend drive me around while I listened for it, but nothing I grabbed stopped the noise. I'm probably going to pull of the front right fender liner and see if there's something that could be causing the noise.

    Check your fuse and all other covers under the hood. Mine got loose. Was bugging the crap out of me. Till I found that's what it was.
