Yesterday @ the beach when leaving I noticed while in 4 wheel drive as I would speed up a loud clicking noise or sound is present. Go back to 2 wheel drive no noise. Put back in 4 and faster I go louder it gets. I am open for all thelp I can get. It's a new on for me. You can hear it on pavement when tested but lot louder in soft sand.

i would think that the front is not going into 4wd. put it in neutral then put it in 4 hi, back to drive & then drive. try that out a few times. the manual says you are supposed to actuate 4wd every once in a while to keep the parts lubricated etc. maybe your's has not been used in a while and is not shifting all the way into 4wd.

Next time you try it turn off the traction control. it might have been the abs pump activiating the brakes to control wheel spin.

i would say that its a CV joint but they will make noise regardless of being in 4WD and usually make the clicking noise when turning. but being in sand can ruin a lot of moving parts.hope the dealer can find the problem.

Just found out today that the transfer case has a internal failure. **** is coming apart. The service advisor said Toyota warranty has a inspector looking at it and they will only rebuild the unit with new internal parts. No swap. What can I say !! I have no option but let Toyota do what they only approve. Will follow up Monday when I know more.

Sorry took so long to get back. 11 days at the dealership. Repairs consisted of complete rebuilt transfer case. Not a swap. Toyota has a TSB for the tech to rebuild it with new parts. Have not had a chance to test the 4 wheel drive yet. Tomorrow I will update with all parts that where used. I was surprised they did not just put a whole new unit in there. Instead they rebuilt it @ the dealership for some reason when I filled my truck the next day my trip to empty was reading 421 miles. Usually it reads around 310-320. Funny...

It read 421 because the computer had been reset. Give it some driving time and it will knock back down to 321.

So second snow of the season here in Colorado and my wife calls me up and says that the 05 Sequoia is making a crazy "clicking noise" when she engaged the 4 wheel drive. I get home and test it out and hear the exact same sound that she described! Only on the front passenger wheel area...I took the sequoia out and put it in 4HI and 4LOW, turned off and on the differential but the sound continued while the 4 wheel drive was engaged only...it would not make any sound while in 2 wheel drive.

You guys think that this would be the same type of situation, that I would need a whole new transfer case??? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

my 08 tundra made that clicking sound when I would switch from 4 to 2wd. I would stop, back up abt 20' and put it back in drive and it would stop. I took it to the dealer and they couldn't get it to reproduce for over a year. I took it 2 months ago and had the mgr ride with me. He explained everything to tech and they ended up replacing my whole front axle. 3400 bux. Good thing it was under warranty.
