Toyota Says Highlander May Squeak

Some 2014-2019 Toyota Highlander and Highlander HV vehicles may exhibit an abnormal squeak, squawk or groan type noise from the rear suspension when traveling over uneven roads or when the vehicle comes to a complete stop.

This may be more pronounced in colder ambient temperatures. The noise may be caused by the rear trailing arm bushing. An updated rear trailing arm assembly is now available.

Using ChassisEAR or equivalent, test drive over uneven road surfaces to verify the concern is coming from the bushings. Applying soapy water to the suspected bushing may temporarily diminish the noise, assisting in identification of the noise source.

Before installing new parts, confirm the identification mark as shown in the photos. If this mark is not present, the part is incorrect and should not be installed. The correct new part has this identification mark. The mark faces the outside of the vehicle when installed. Replace both rear trailing arm assemblies even if only one is producing the noise.
