    It's the flux capacitor......

    Just kidding. Like Whippersnapper said it's the glove box damper. It essentially works as a shock for the glove box.

    It’s a small plastic part that darn near impossible to get back on once it’s removed to check the cabin filter. Funny how much air won’t go through a cabin filter after 5 yrs...

    I’m surprised you survived inside the cab the last 3 years.

    Your sentiment for smelly trucks makes me remember my last gen one. I had a chipmunk die in the truck. It was awful. Smelled it forever. During the winter made it worse. Turn the heat on and gag.
    You’d have loved it 4wd. lol

    I'm loving it right now reading it man, & getting hungry too, greasy, rotting mammals does it for me... So it was a good "smelling point" when selling it huh....:)

    Yeah. The wife didn’t much care for the smell or the size of the regular cab. Main reason I got rid of it. Otherwise I’d probably still have it. That was my red Tacoma I loved so much. Like the one you have now.
    The only difference is mine was red and your current Tacoma is “Impulse Red Pearl”!

    Yeah. I couldn’t stand it.... I had to get at least one more post about the Impulse Red Pearl. (Quite possibly the worst color name ever for a 4WD truck). The only worse name I could even think of would be like Red Rainbow Sparkles or something.
