Sorry, I accidentaly hit the enter Button before finishing!

the thing is that ocassionally when I hitbump in the road, the car emits a subtle ratling noise. I have checked, but found nothing. I took it to the dealer and they didn't find anything either. Any ideas?

Thanks

I think it comes from the front left (drivers side of the car). Usaually happens when I hit a bump, but it doesn't happen everytime I hit one. I thought originally that it was the suspension, because the rattle seems to come from the wheel well area. The guys at Toyota told me the suspension was perfect. My only other guess is that the clutch pedal may be the cause?

Doubt that its the pedal, a squeak when pressed yes, but not a rattle. If you suspension checks out the are sure its not coming from the engine bay. Or maybe something else is loose like the plates under the car.

Do you have any mods or anything. It sounds like a bracket or something came off and is just chillin in there rolling around when you hit bumps. Is it that kind of rattle?

Yes its that kind of rattle. The only mod I have is the TRD exhaust, and will be intsalling an Injen Intake this week, but I'm trying to find that rattle first. I checked the plastics, and all the screws are in place.
Sorry for any inconviniences that I maybe causing you guys, but thanks for the help I strongly appreciated!!

what you could do is:

1. Try bouncing the car and see if you can duplicate the rattle, that way you will be right there figuring out where it is coming from.

2. Have a fried drive it over a bump (driveway, speedbump, etc), while you stand on the outside listening for where it is coming from.

These may help you narrow it down.
