    I recently started hearing a noise coming from the dash. It sounds like a "cracking" or plastic hitting against something. It seems to happen when the truck is cold and the outside temp is cold as well. Any ideas as to what it may be?

    Yes, its a tab thats touching your windshield.When it gets cold that rubber and plastic in the dash and outside gets cold and creeks like crazy. Mine does it when it gets cold and is quiet when its not. There is athread about how to fix it somewhere but it involves taking out the outside part of the dash.

    My current, and last Tundra did that too...annoying? Sure..but this cold is only temporary so I just ignore it and turn up the music

    Well, now I know it's not just mine that's making the noise. Thanks for the info.

    I think I found the service bulletin for the dash fix.

    Yeah, wasn't sure if it would apply to the 2nd gen Tundra because it said it covered the 07

    Had the truck out today. Temp was in mid 50's. There was a little noise, but not as bad as the other day when temp was in the 30's

    My truck hasn't done it in the past but recently since it has gotten cold in Lubbock I too am hearing the same noise. Sure I hate it but what can you do, stuff will shrink and expand with climate changes

    Is it sagging too? They start to sag on the right side up near the windshield pillar.

    Ok I'm bringing this up again because the noise is very bad since it got cold this week. Here is a clip where I held the phone up near the window.

    i found my interior noise, kind of like a bird chirping. it was the outside trim where the wipers arms attach, the trim was rubbing along the bottom side of the window. for a quick fix i taped it down with electrical tape, have not heard the noise for about a week now.

    My cold weather noise mysteriously disappeared without me doing anything. Even in the very cold of this last storm it was fine.

    Do you have pics of how you taped them?

    My 15 crewmax makes a creeking noise to the center console area as well as up by the Windshield on the passenger side. And it's cold here in North Dakota. Turning the radio up only works for so long.

    Would you happen to have a pic of where you taped? My 07 Tundra makes the noise when cold outside. Thanks

    My 2015 just started some kind of noise like this as well. This is the coldest we've had since I got it. Mine almost sounds like it's some kind of heater door or something I can count the amount of times it slaps, 4, like it's back and forth. After that it's good. Strange.
