Front passenger wheel rattle on washboard

Anyone figured out a fairly loud rattle from the front passenger wheel area on bad bumps like washboard? Iím starting to wonder if my steering vibration has anything to do with it, but seriously doubting it.

I only know about it because I rode shotgun with the windows all down and was a bit perturbed hitting rough stuff off-road. I figure some crack head here figured it out and wanted to ask.

Truck has 8,000 miles. SR5. Not relevant to 4WD. Heard it in 2WD. Sounds like something simple, but I donít have a lift to pound around with a rubber mallet.

I donít think this is a common problem. If it is a reproducible problem then take it into the dealer as 8,000 miles your should still be warrantied.

This isnít an endemic problem. You have something loose.

Could a rock have gotten in the hub cap?

Got under the truck and banged around with a rubber mallet. All I hear that isnít solid is the front skid plate. Rattly sounding. Itís going in to the dealer tomorrow for the never ending steering wheel vibration debacle, so Iíll have them look for it. I still get the squeak on compression from the front that sounds like a slight tire skid.

This is my first Toyota and I have to say it is definitely going to my wife and will likely be my last. Iíve never had a vehicle with so many interior and exterior noises. Iím not even trying on the horrible sunroof rattles. I just donít have the energy after week after week of trying to find the dash popping. I did figure out the sunglasses holder rattles badly, but I donít have a fix. Tried several things and got nowhere. I just turn the music up until I can get another car and give this to my wife.

BorotHex, I had a rattle on my front driver side that was driving me nuts and I finally figured it out. My front brake cable bracket/holder was loose. I believe it was a 10mm bolt.

Itís most likely the wheel liner, splash guard for the engine bay. The grommets work themselves loose and the rubber flaps causing almost a metal sound like skid guard or something loose. Thereís a couple threads but not sure what the subject was.
So check that and add two sided tape as quick fix on the backside of the rubber the middle between the grommets. Push into the wheel well. My hasnít worked loose after a year that Iíve heard. Havenít check though.
Also check that the bolts on the skid plat are all there and tight. Another good bet if you had oil changes at the dealership.

I had something similar happen while coming down a winding mountain road. I had been hitting a bunch of dirt roads in the days prior. Anyway, I pulled over and searched and searched until I randomly decided to tap on the wheel center cap and heard the rattle. I popped it off and out came the front hub grease cap. I smacked it back in with a rock. I guess just give it a check. Takes about 5 seconds to pop off the center cap with the tool in the trunk. Worth a shot.

Well the dealer ignored my recommendation to use a mallet and find the rattle. Instead, ďdrove on a bumpy roadĒ, paved of course, and ďheard nothingĒ.

So I have a suspension rattle, a strange barking chirping sound on bumps the dealer heard and said they canít find what it is, and a vibrating steering wheel they claim they didnít feel.

So my dealer is completely useless and thereís not another for hundreds of miles. Iím screwed until I move and can get rid of it.

I have addressed that, so thatís not it. I wish it was.

Iíll check the skid plate bolts!
