    I have a 2018 cm and I’m getting a creaking noise from the dash area when driving. it sounds like it’s coming from the steering column where it goes through the firewall. any ideas on what it could be

    I had a dash noise and it was kinda like a creaking/ rattling noise. I basically bought trim tools and started pulling apart the dash ( after 5 times at the dealer, they installed sound foam etc.. never got rid of the noise.) once I got back there I saw a wire loom rattling against the air ducts. Also the part of the dash that is against the windshield has play in it and can rattle, I stuffed some memory foam under it to tighten it up. Guys also find noise from the plastic cover over the rear view mirror, as well as the ECM. It goes through the firewall and can get loose. Once you get the radio out and glove box out you can see all in there. The whole dash basically comes apart fast and easy. Drive around and listen. Have someone drive so you can investigate. There are tons of threads on this. Good luck!!

    Maybe but I have a popping noise coming from my head liner between the door and the sun visor. That’s all I can hear when driving right now. Drives me crazy. Ive tried to get it to stop but it’s something inside the liner. I’d have to take the door seal off and pull the liner down add some adhesive or something and hope that fixes it. I’ve got an appointment to have some recalls and my 10k mile service completed on Thursday. I might see what my service guy says before I try to fix it myself.
    I feel like the more this stuff is documented maybe Toyota will step up and make some much needed changes.
    My 2017 Tacoma had lots of rattles and interior vibrations. I was able to fix most of them with felt tape. Turning my stereo up fixed the rest. Problem is sometimes I like to drive without music and sit inside my head. Can’t do that well with ticks and pops and squeaks and rattles all around you.
    :annoyed:

    Hope you figure out where its coming from. Stuff like that drives me crazy. A9903DAA-035E-412E-B5F0-D4A1C6926F92.jpg

    I saw a thread on this. A guy had the same noise and figured out it was the headliner sticking and unsticking from the adhesive. Forgot what he did but it’s a start...

    Thanks.
    That’s what it sounds like. I can push on it and it will “stick” or stop popping for a minute but oregon roads suck. Winter studded tires rip the roads up. To many bumps and pot holes it starts popping again. If I constantly hold it down it’s fine.
