I noticed the rear one in the passenger front wheel well, but just found the front one and a clip had pulled out. I'm going to wash it now, then try the double sided tape! I will report back!

So far so good! It was that one little clip that had popped out. I put it back in and shoved in some double sided tape. You guys are awesome! Amazing how a stupid little clip can make so much NOISE.

Any thoughts on if the "rubber hanging guards" are even necessary in that spot? I'd like to just remove it all together....

I was thinking the same thing. I might rip them right out next!

I've been chasing some metallic rattles for a while. I'm thinking it's lateral play in my axles. Everything else has been replaced and it's still there, except my front axles, which seem fine, but I noticed today that I can laterally move them 1/4 inch or so using my hand. Just the axle shaft moves not the end joints. Anyway else try this? Please do and report back.! Wondering if it's normal or if my axles are worn. I use my rig mostly for trails so once i air down there is A LOT lateral movement and it drives me nuts!

Cheers

I have two recordings... One of my suspension HERE ( YouTube )

I have one of the outside, too HERE ( YouTube )

I have tried the following things:

Removed Front AND Transmission skidplates
Removed the mudflap in the wheel well
Removed the plastic wheel hubs on the TRD Off Road wheels
Checked the clips on the upper control arms and sealed them in place
They also torqued all suspension components to factory specs

They "insulated" my skid plate which was useless since I told them it happens without skid plate on it... HEH


Thanks

LOVE my 4Runner, HATE that it rattles already!

I have a new 2020 TRD Off Road Prem and every once in a while I notice a thin metal rattle. I only notice it when the window is open and Im idling or moving slowly. I dont know how often it is as I hardly ever have the window open in this humid heat. Usually when I'm in a drive through.
On my 2015 Trail I had that clunk issue that was never resolved. The dealers could never find it.

I think I have loose LCA bolts after an alignment. How can I torque these down without messing up my alignment?

I was experiencing a rattle as well and went searching for answers and stumbled upon this thread. After watching your videos it sounded exactly the same as mine. Only happens when going over bumps and windows have to be down to hear it. Though it was something with suspension for a while because it was only happening over bumps. I have a 2015 TRD Pro and just took it in for its 90k service. I was able to locate the source of the rattle for me. It was the "COVER ASSEMBLY, ENGINE UNDER, REAR". One of the bolts wasn't tightened down enough and was causing a rattle. .

Happy you found your clunk! I have aftermarket skids and have checked those many many times. I removed my front sway which has helped but when wheeling I do continue to hear the clunk. It may be in the rear! The front sway, in theory, is stiffening the rig enough to make the clunk more frequent with lateral movement(over rocks, off-camber, etc), so again removing it reduces the clunks but IT'S STILL THERE! Someday I'll find it lol.

4Runner Rattle Noise

I have so many annoying rattles in my 2021 that Iím probably going to get rid of it. Iíve had 24 cars in my life. This is my first ever Toyota, and probably my last. Iíve spent at least an hour every day for 3 weeks trying every trick I know and Iím getting nowhere. Iím starting to hate the car.

Good luck to those fighting with this, but I have to say I have never been so stumped and I have always been able to fix any rattles myself. Not on this one. They just seem to be unfolding right and left. Pisses me off.

Edit - If you have a popping sound at the passenger a-pillar, believe it or not the fitment is so bad that it is actually bound on my car. I used an interior trim tool to shove a microfiber towel in between and for now that popping beast from hell is tamed. A 1985 Ford Escort had engineering sufficient to not have the dash popping on the a-pillar. Disappointed because these are engineering issues, not assembly. Itís just not designed to minimize NVH and I have to say itís shocking to me. I always thought Toyotaís were boring, but all this stuff was perfect. Not true.

I have not even started on the moonroof. I have rattles while itís closed, different rattles when itís fully opened, and a horrifying metal on metal binding tear/pop sound when itís tilted. I love moon roofs so this is very annoying.

My 2019 TRD OR Prem had several annoying rattles that really made me question the build quality of "newer" Toyotas. One was coming from the moonroof which turned out to be one of the little covers that expand on each side to hide the mechanical lifts. Also, one from the passenger side dash top speaker which required me to loosen the bolts that hold the speaker in place. I had one coming from the driver side striker plate which made the door creak/rattle. The fix was to barely loosen the bolt on the top and putting a piece of felt then tightening it back up. I also noticed a squeak coming from the non- KDSS front suspension on a mild off road trail. I sold it before I could get around to dealing with that one. Honestly my 4th Gen's feel better put together than the 5th gen.
