You need to list two more digits.

One of mine broke. Dealer quoted more than $800 to do the TSB. I bought the updated bolts for less than $20 and paid a shop 1.25 hours to remove the broken and intact bolts and replace them. Updated for less tha CA$150.

Yours is OK. All three of mine are not within the range either, but it is so easy to replace them that I figured I would do so as a just in case, and coat the new ones with an anti-corrosion coating.

Thank you! Unlike most of you on here, I'm clueless; can barely put gas in it.

I know this is an old thread...but I've been hearing a clunking noise now and then too, and I'm confused about the VIN number. The sound is very intermittent and I am taking mine into the dealer Friday....it has less than 19K miles on it, and I'm still under the original warranty. I thought this was only for model year up to 2009.

Here's part of mine: JTDJT4K39A5289---
I don't have the pound sign in my VIN Number. What is the # sign after the "3" in the VIN above?

The # sign is basically saying to ignore that digit. A is less than B, so it is applicable to your Yaris.

Actually, I was just looking at the TSB again and the B is the plant code in the VIN, so it looks like only Yaris with a B before the six serial number digits are affected, so that means that your A would not be applicable.

Darn, but I think I'll take this TSB with me anyway. I've been hearing this clunking sound starting around Sept. 2010 and back then it rarely did it, so didn't bother taking it in as then it would have been a waste of my time. Now I'm hearing it more often.

I looked at mine a few hours ago and they look fine.

I dont think I have had the clunking noise, but can anyone describe it a bit better?

I am OCD when it comes to this car and always think something is wrong with it. :P

It's hard to describe the sound. It's just ONE clunk that comes out of nowhere - loud, you can hear it above the radio (I don't have my radio cranked up THAT loud though), more like a knock than a clunk - it seems to come from underneath the car a little in front of where the passenger would put their feet if stretching out their legs. Mine is towards the passenger side of the car.

I have OCD with my car too, it all began with my Cavalier I had before the Yaris. I had the Cavalier 13 years and the last year it was one idiot light coming on after another. I became paranoid after driving that car.

Good info, thanks.
I think I'll change 'em out myself as a matter of course.

CT, I printed out the TSB and took my car in last Friday anyway. They said my car was affected, and they ordered the bolts. I had the car there again this morning to swap them out for the new ones, my old bolts were starting to rust.

Very good. So, that must mean that B plant code cars are affected as well.
