My fiance's 07' sedan has been making this clunk for a few months now, I ordered the new bolts just in case I need them. I'll crawl under there and check them out tomorrow before work and let you know how they look! Has anyone had success drilling a small drain hole in the sub-frame? Seems like a logical fix to me.

Will last forever.
PS
Part number for this bolt is a bit different in Canada.
How much were the bolts from the dealership? I should probably do this maintenance pretty soon.

Did any of you guys check any of the other bolts?

Yes Ive heard of doing that. Toyota has a proceedure to seal up the area with some goo or other.

Confused about new bolts.

I just bought a set of bolts at my local Toyota dealer today. Unfortunately they look just like the old ones and have two marks, or lines on the head. I hope they did not sell me some old ones hoping I would not know the difference. Is there any other way to tell the difference? I am waiting to install them until I am sure they are the upgraded bolts. I am afraid if I go back to Toyota they will not know the difference, if there is one. Thanks.

There is not actually a different new bolt. It is simply a case of replacing like with like, and if you read the TSB, doing a bit of extra seam sealing limit the water that can enter in with the bolt.

Thanks CTScott, I think I will swap them out tomorrow then. Not sure I can do the seam sealing that is mentioned but at least the new bolts should add a few more years until something breaks.

2008 Toyota Yaris sedan 34,500 on May 10, 2013 After full routine maintenance at my Toyota dealer (tires rotated, oil change, inspect ball joints, drive shaft, nuts, bolts, fluids, road test vehicle) on my daughter's car, we left to go to my son's graduation in Mass. about 3.5 hour drive. Fifty miles into the trip at 65 mph (I was driving, 35 yrs experience, no accidents) hot weather, dry roads, around noon lots of cars, three lane highway, we were in the slow lane following traffic, her car goes into a skid. I had no idea what was happening other than trying to avoid hitting other cars, going off a steep drop to the right or trying not to hit the cement median. I've been in skids before on bad winter roads but not at 65 mph. My foot was off the gas and I was not breaking, trying to regain control of the car. After trying to regain control after the 3rd skid the car took us into 180 degree spin and as we headed into the cement median I slammed on the brakes. I have since found my "Warranty Enhancement Notice" on her vehicle. The letter's not dated, I don't remember when it came but I had filed it in with her car info. I did not remember this letter but a month before the accident I would hear a clank noise if I went over a dip or if I turned her steering wheel sharply to the right when parking. She's away at college so I only drive her car every other day locally and back and forth on college pick ups. Our lives were spared that day and we did not hit anyone else. I would have to say it was a miracle. PLEASE if you have a Yaris 2006 - 2011 do not wait until it starts to make noise before you get it checked. I would have it checked every 6 months. Once this bolt breaks off, it is too late.

Glad to see everyone is o.k. , imagine nerves were frayed . We have these noises and can't get any Toyota service center to replace the bolts . They never hear it and appears to be fine on the lift . We also got the notice . Should make it mandatory .

After doing alot of searching online, I have found two lawsuits for wrongful death regarding the Toyota Yaris 2008. One was a soldier home and the other a college student. If my daughter and I had been killed that day they would have wrongly assumed it was our fault, when in fact it was the control arm. There are several others who documented online their accidents at a lower speed. You are 100% correct it needs to be a mandatory recall. If this got media attention perhaps then it would be taken seriously.

My BMW F650 motorcycle stalled at lights. One a year at first then after three years every week. BMW had it three times and couldnt fix it. Other bikes did it too.

No recall ever issued. Probably moot because I doubt they could have done naything anyway. : (.

Went and got the bolts replaced . No appointment , just popped in with the notice from Toyota . The previous 2 did nothing . 2 new bolts , but it still creaked when pulling onto the uneven surface of a restaurant parking lot . Should we be concerned of that ? Here's the invoice .

The part # stated on the invoice is 90119-14151 . Is this the new part number or is the bolt / washer part # for the sedan control arm different than that of the hatchback ?

90119-14151 is a new part number. It replaces 90119-14126 and 90119-14144.

The creaking probably has nothing to do with this bolt. It is more likely the bushing around the horizontal bolt that is creaking.

Horizontal bolt of the front strut ? If so , should that be covered under the PLATINUM extended warranty ? Really appreciate your help.

No. The horizontal bolt that allows the A-Arm to pivot up and down.

How long of a job is it to be replaced and can it be dangerous to drive? We found that uneven outer tire wear is one of the symptoms which we have on both front sides. 7/32s on outer sides of both front tires and the rest is 8/32s . The Bridgestone Ecopia EP 422s' started at 11/32s and were installed on 4/6/13 . They've been rotated once . Seems like quick wear . The previous tires wore quick too . Those were Continental Pro Contact Eco Plus . Don't drive like a speed demon , just average .
