      If you can show Toyota you took it in while still under warrenty, it
      SHOULD be easy to get Toyota to foot the bill.

      It sounds to me that the dealership made the decision not to do the
      work under warrenty, not Toyota. If you don't have documents that
      you tried while under warrenty, ask Toyota anyways...All you lose is
      a phone call...
