Wow, what timing! I was just complaining to my wife that my cars smells musty after the AC has been on and it's been sitting in the hot sun for a couple of days. Maybe I'll bring it in.

Man, I love this place!

Toyota Confirmed that they would no honor the TSB as it was a US TSB. Anyone have any thoughts or experience on this? Why would the TSB only be for the US?

You could always call Toyota Canada and ask. Then complain.

Tomorrow's the big day of surgery to have the evap. replaced under this TSB. Here's hoping the dash board doesn't get messed up taking it apart and putting it back together. I've stressed over having this done since I had a vehicle messed up before from a drain problem fix in the HVAC system, but those of you that posted saying the work was done and you were happy gave me encouragement to go ahead with it. I'll post how it all turned out if any one is a sitting on the fence wondering about having their car taken apart for this.

What year are your cars that you are having this done for free?

My stealership won't honor it because My car is a 2007, and has 53k miles, yet has the extended warrenty. Am I in the right, or are they?

From what the TSB says they are in the right. This is not a recall it just a bulletin meaning they don't have to fix it under the full warranty and can apply a different warranty to this.

The TSB states that the vehicle has to have less than 36,000.

Update on having this TSB done: Your dash will be completely taken apart to the firewall to complete the evaporator replacement, all that will remain are the seats. So know that going into this. So far the damage is minimal from this repair-a few cowl panel scratches and missing clip-they have ordered a new clip having lost the original. The right surround trim on the radio is not quite flush-but very close. The most noticable damage was they somehow scratched the door sill area in a few spots down to the bare metal on the drivers side-touch up paint will fix, but still a bummer. Otherwise, the dash is fine and all is good and tight-no rattles so far. I also had the TSB done on the dash pod rattle-so that is totally quiet now. Yes, the A/C is fresh-no odor. In talking to the tech. I came to learn it probably is not the design of the evaporator, but the metal used and a chemical reaction occuring that can cause the odor. Apparently this has happened in Camry's before. And if you don't get it fixed while you can for free the evaporator "may, but not for certain" corrode itself to the point it leaks out the freon or in our case R-134. So, if your car is one of the effected, you might want to consider this fix while under warranty. The part price is almost $250 and labor is at least 4 hours.

Why would my 2009 Yaris (8000 miles) not be covered if there is a stench from hell when the heater is turned on?

Brought it to the dealer today with the TSB. They agreed it had an odor problem as they smelled it. They said my 2009 is not covered because this model had the odor problem corrected.

So I asked them and important question:

Why does it still stink?

They offered to drain something and run some chemical in the system to clean it out? Well I said go ahead and I'll bring it back if it still stinks. I'll pick it up later today and update this later on.
