2000 Tundra SR5,  Driving at or near highway speeds get a popcorn like sound coming from lower passenger corner of windshield area.  Gets worse in a cross wind and cold weather.  Any ideas as to the cause?

I have the same problem. I think that I have found the problem to be with the wiper blades. The wind picks the tips up and they flap against the windshield. I am trying to find some blades with a spoiler to keep them against the windsheild.

My 2002 had same problem. Started one week after purchase. After seven trips back to dealer nothing changed and problem got worse. I finally argued dealer into replacing windshield and having it professionally installed at my house. Installer said the required mounting/sealer strip had not been installed at factory. Windshield was sitting on metal frame and rust around frame had begun due to paint being worn away. Correct installation fixed problem for months, but problem is returning. Sisters 2003 4 Runner has same problem.

Will never buy Toyota again. After an easy 45K all on st/hwy the damn thing rattles and squeaks, gas mileage sucks, brakes fall apart, wheel bearings fail like clock work, vibration in power train returns shortly after each manufacturer repair, door hinges bend metal door skins when opened on incline, etc.

Family has owned Chevy's, Ford's and Dodge's with no such problems. I believed Toyota hype and thought I would step up. I got screwed. When I get out of bucket it's back to real trucks. Toyota trucks are the modern version of a Yugo.

it could be the mudguard that is loose. I had the same problem with a different truck in windy conditions.

I had a popping noise in my 02 Tundra that turned out to be an unsealed windshield.
