My question is will my 05 be covered? Does anyone know if they are going to replace the input shaft on a later TSB? That is the real issue isnt it? I was just reading the TO bearing GB thread and have come to the realization that mine is squeaking as well. How can you issue a TSB for set set amount of time IE 60 months(5 years) covering a vehicle that is already beyond that timeframe and then deny them the service? I have less than 20K on my truck.

The TO/clutch TSB will ONLY cover the clutch and pressure plate! And only if u can't move in any gear. The clutch has to have separated from the the center hub for them to cover it.

Acee-Runner I'm not sure about ur mileage though, do u have an extended warranty to 100k or is it ur basic PT warranty that's 100k?

I have the 100k PT warranty. I just figured since is was covered in the 60/60 PT warranty....it might do it with the 100k

I just called Camelback Toyota here in Phoenix and spoke to the line supervisor and he gave me some crap about how if the techinician said it was normal, they wouldnt cover it. I have griped about the clutch slipping and getting stuck trying to put it in gear for some time now, with no action.

Lets see....Fisrt clutch snapped at 1500 miles. They replaced and covered under warranty.
TOB started to squeal about a month after I got it back. Took it in for the squeaaling and they replaced the TOB under warranty. At about 25000 the second clutch was acting up and I took it in for service. When i got there the tech took it for a test drive and didnt make it back. The clutch snapped on him and had to have the truck towed back. Replaced the clutch, Input shaft and TOB...all covered under warranty..........Now Im at 35000 miles....TOB is squealing again and 5th grinds everytime...no matter what RPM. Im gonna call them tomorrow and see if there is anything new they can do. Im am really hoping for the TSB to come out. I am so sick and tired of this crap.

Camelback sucks. Try Avondale Toyota. Tell them you have an X-Runner and ask for Cejay. :top:

Anyone know when this was revised from 60/60 to 36/36? My dealer just showed me the exact same TSB that's attached on page one with 36 mo/ 36 mile coverage...

No this thread is about the TSB for the clutch friction disc separating from the clutch hub.

I'm not sure, maybe because the TO is replaced during the TSB. :dontknow: However the TSB is only performed on a clutch that has separated from the hub.

As this happened to me at exactly 21,700 miles, I am now even more pissed off that this is only a TSB issue. This is making your powertrain FAIL completely. This should be mandated as a recall. I had to fight TOOTH AND NAIL with the service department to get them to cover my truck under warranty. This is going back to at least late 2008, long before this "TSB" was even issued. :motz:

That's because stealerships are all crooks! I've worked at enough of them over the past 20 yrs to know how they operate......it's ashame they're allowed to get away with how they just rob people or deny warranty/TSB work period!

BTW I wasn't a flat rate mechanic at any of them
