Question about 2001 Toyota Sienna
Posted by Anonymous on
For water leaking inside the rear door panel, I'll suggest you check and replace the black rubber/foamy seal that is part of the high-mounted-rear light assembly.
It gets weak over time and soaks water, thereby allowing water seep into the booth lining and also into the underlay of the carpet.
If you have a cracked rear-light (the one attached to the boot hatch), you may also get a leak.
Change this rubber seal/ gasket. I used an old rubber carpet to make a gasket to fit the light assembly, and it stopped the leakage.
Hope this helps.

You need to disconnect the rear wheel cylinder brake line and pull off the rear backing plate, via the 4 bolts that are visible after you remove the brake shoes. One the backing plate is loose, take it down, out of the way, and pull the axle shaft straight out. You will need several parts from a Toyota Dealer, and a machine shop to press off the old bearings and seals, and to press on the new bearings and seals. Go to the dealer & tell them your problem, we do this job once-twice a week; a common issue. The only seal that you can change yourself is the axle tube "outer" seal, you will see it when you pull out the shaft. But, this seal is not the cause of your leak. The inner seal on the shaft is worn. You will also need to replace the oily brake shoes, too. Hope this helps. A FIxYa rating would be appreciated.

I have a 2001 Sienna and have had to replace most of my tail light bulbs.
The bulbs that are mounted in the fender (wrap arounds) have acess panels in the van's interior that easily pop out and expose the back of the light assembly.
However, the bulbs that are found in the lift gate are a different matter. You have to remove the whole interior panel to the lift gate to expose the light assemblies. Go to your auto parts store and get a tool to help pop out the plastic retainers from the lift gates metal frame. Don't force the retainers out. Go slowly and gently so that you don't damage the interior panel. If you are really gentle you might even get to reuse the retainers.

If you can remove the inner door panel you will see a maze of cables running to the various locking points on the sliding door. If the cable going to the FRONT latch on the sliding door is broken (or in my case, simply dislodged inside the door) the door acts as if it is frozen shut.
The front cable is short, and easily replaced even by a newbie mechanic.

The problem is in the sunvisor light. You will have to take the light assembly off and you will find wires have become disconnected.

Try this.....Find the latch on the door, stick your finger in the hole, lift up and pull the door handle at the same time, the inside latch mechanism should go up, then try the door again. It would be nice if that's all it was huh? Sometimes they stick when they get too cold. If this works for you....spray it with some WD-40 or graphite. Hope this worked for you. Cheaper than the 2000.00 motor!

To start, the noun "''rear latch switch'' is incorrect. It's actually called "Slide Door Lock". It's located on page BO-20 of the Toyota Repair Manual for the 2001 Sienna. There are two door locks on one sliding door. One in the front and one in the rear. Obviously, you want the one in the rear. The location for the "Slide Door Lock" (which also contains an electric switch) is in the rear of the sliding door located mid way up door. You can see (sliding door opened from the back) it without dissembling the door. And, the lock is made up of plastic (dirty white in color).
