When you guys talked about this issue with your local dealership service department, did they know about it already? Or did you guys let them know about it? Cause when I started to ask them whether they received info about this issue they seem clueless. I guess we have to go to the dealership let them hear the chirping sound?

When I got out of my car, the tech walked up and asked, "Chirping fuel pump?"

They had just read the bulletin the day before. I believe this was last Thurs.

You should have no problem getting the high pressure fuel pump replaced because of a sound tube delete. I took my frs in with an injen cai and they didn't even mention it, just told me that the part was on backorder and they would call me whenever they got it in to replace it.

Dealership refused to do my car, they said the sound wasn't loud enough. I'll wait a little longer before I argue it. I expected a Toyota dealer to be a little more reasonable but I guess not. They look at the car like its from outer space so I'll let them learn to replace them on others cars first.

Do you actually have the chirp? Not the ticking, but the chirp? If so, I'd throw a hizzy.

Yep, I have the chirp.

Everyone at the dealership heard it too (with the hood even closed) but they said it wasn't loud enough to meet the Toyota TSB. I emailed Scion asking for a decibel level at the band of frequency the chirp was in so I could determine if it complied. Saying the one in the Toyota video provided to dealers with the TSB is louder isn't appropriate in my eyes, they need to physically define it with units of measure if they are going to be that picky.

Don't worry, I brought my car in for service with an already scheduled appointment, they take it then realize they don't have any oil filters! WTF! Then they lied to me about why they didn't have any in stock. It took 3 degrading lies to get to the truth, someone never replaced their inventory.

Has anyone had any luck getting the dealership to just give them the oil and filters they would use under the service provided with the 2 year scion boost the car was sold with? I requested that as I don't really want them touching my car, especially after I watched them put my lug nuts on with a impact gun and no torque stick.

They also lied to me and tried to tell me my warranty would be voided if I used non-OEM parts in the service myself. I then asked them to read the front page of their warranty book provided with my car that details the Magnuson–Moss act.

These dealers are out of control, I'm recording my conversations with them next time. Its super illegal to be a dealership and state stuff like that.

I just got my car today at 4 and i drove it and went on the freeway and didnt hear any chirps, but I smelled gas, i might call because they either spilled some in the car from taking out the gas pump or they didn't do it right.

Usually thats the oil/cosmoline or something that they put on the car to protect it from shipping. It goes away like at 100mi or really depends.

Did you post which dealership this was at so others can avoid it?

Have any FRS owners tried taking a copy of the BRZ tab in with them to show the fix, six the scion tab doesn't seem to solve much?
