2004 Tacoma Air Conditioning Problem

I'm having a problem with my Air Conditioning. When I make turns I'm hearing a "russling leaves" noise coming from my vents. Additionally, when I make turns I'm getting water leaking out from behind my dash. Any thoughts?

Sounds like the evaporator drain is clogged and probably has debris inside from fresh air vent flap. clean out exterior vents of any debris. next find the drain for the a/c/heater box either under the dash or under the truck.make sure that is clear of any debris.oh, your looking for a small black rubber hose at bottom most point of heater/a/c box(probably on passenger side).you can remove this hose without too much trouble.if water starts coming out, more than likely you found PART of the problem(PS you may want to have some rags or small bucket ready just in case). the problem may not repeat itself at all but if you have a lot of debris in there, it will probably clog that drain again.if you really want to get into it you could drop the whole box out, but you'll need some a/c equipment and some antifreeze.I think cleaning those vents and the drain will probably get you straight for a while though.hope this helps.Chris

The clicking noise you hear is a stripped out plastic gear from the blend air door motor almost every car maker now uses little electric motors to control heater door panels,put it in the position for it to make noise go under your dash find where it is usually externally mounted remove it and replace it cost about 30 dollars at the dealer.depending on which of the 3 motors its is usually not hard to do.

2004 Tacoma A/C problem

Most likely your A/C system need to be recharged. Most A/C systems have a pressure switch to keep the A/C from running if the freon is too low or is gone. This keep the A/C compressor from burning out.

2005 toyota tacoma air conditioning cold on left, warm on right

I would not suggest repairing yourself. Sounds like a blend door actuator. Not to sure on a toyota because i know more about domestic but i believe that the dash needs to be taken apart to replace this part or to atleast examine your duct work behind the dash. Hope this helps! ~Derek~

Without looking at it, you may have one or more of the following:

Rust on the inside edge of the rotor (most common)

Worn front brake pads

Front wheel bearing problem.

Backing plate (behind rotor) rubbing the rotor

These are the most common causes, you can see 1,2 & 4 with the wheel off.

Hope this helps.
