Check your sway bar end links, bushings and control arm bushings. I'm having the same issue on my Echo and i'm gooing to change the bushings next. I'll let you know if it fixes it. The struts, inner and outer tie rods, engine mounts are all new and the strut bearings were both regreased.

If you're on the fence about replacing these bolts, do not assume that they are OK because the bolt heads look ok. My driver side bolt head looked brand new, but the shaft was in bad condition.

How'd you end up removing the one w/ the snapped off head?

I jacked up the car and removed both wheels. I then removed all of the bolts holding the crossmember to the car. Then I was able to use a pry bar to pry down the lower control arm and crossmember. This exposed the shaft of the bolt above the bushing. I then used A pair of vice grips to back the bolt out.

the second number is supposed to be a replacement for the first, but there doesn't seem to be any difference.

Just some updated info regarding the bolts.

I removed mine the other day to inspect its condition. I replaced them about 10 months ago with new ones and put anti seize on the threads and covered the whole bolt in grease.

I re torqued them without weight on the wheels so I wanted to install them with the suspensions properly weighted and I was curious as to how a very cold and salted winter effected them.

I removed them and there was absolutely no rust on them what so ever. The grease was still all over the bolts but it was a bit more dry. I removed the old grease and put marine grease on them instead thinking it would do an even better job.

After seeing the condition after 1 year I will now be checking these every 2 years instead. I assume that they will last about 6-7 years before I'll need to replace them again.

Took car in for some recall work today and told them about the TSB and these bolts and the guy tells me this TSB is obsolete!

Was this ever a recall for northern USA climates? My car is a 08 sedan with 31k.

Should I just buy the bolts and replace? I only have one winter on her.

Did he say anything about a new TSB that replaced it? I'm pretty sure that the bolts won't just stop rusting on their own.

Went back and told him about TSB 0078-12
and he said that is only good for the 3year/36k warranty.

I thought they extended this to 7year/100k?

Also, I got nowhere with corporate Toyota, but I only gave them the Canadian TSB 3271 at the time.

I'd just recommend getting the bolts yourself and replacing them, it will save you and your wallet down the road.

Scott, is that an official document of Toyota?

I called corporate this morning and for the second time I have talked to them they know absolutely nothing about this issue, and without a specific TSB number they were clueless. Both times I feel I was treated very rudely.
This is a safety problem and you think they would be a little more concerned about it!

Anyway apparently my VIN does not fall under this WARRANTY ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM even though my 2008 yaris sedan is clearly included in the vehicles covered. I asked the woman if she was unwilling to help me and she told me to take it up with the dealer.

I am in disbelief as how TOYOTA is treating this issue with me.

Toyota does not have a very good track record of helping people out with manufacturers problems. That being said no car companies really do.

Hence why it's just best to pick up the bolts and do it yourself. The more you know about the Yaris the less you need to rely on others to fix it.

That's what I'm more than likely going todo. I do all my own work anyway. I just wanted to have some satisfaction as to proving it to the dealer that I was correct with this issue, and also Toyota. I was thinking of getting a new Tundra down the road but not now......

What about a reliable low cost independent shop? Friends who could recommend one? I bought the bolts and had such a shop do mine and it was under $30.00 IIRC...might have even been under $20.00. I've had them do other little things like clean the rear brakes along with adjusting the parking break, etc. They are just insanely inexpensive. They've been in business since 1973 and have two locations. When I think "expensive metros where the cost of everything is 'driven up'...", I think the West Coast, the Northeast, and South Florida....not Texas or NE Ohio .

Yes - That was an official bulletin to dealerships. The updated TSB numbers that I posted above are current and correct.

It is possible that your sedan is not included, as sedans are a different body and are built in a different factory, so they may have the seams sealed that are the cause of the issue.
