98 Sienna broken rear quarter window

I have a 1998 Totya Sienna. A few days ago, strong winds blew off (and shattered) my rear quarter passenger side window. I would like to have it replaced. A brand new one would cost more than the van is worth. Is it possible to go to a salvage yard and find a used one? Can I replace it myself. I don't care about it being motorized. I just want a window where one used to be. Thanks for your help

Yes, it is possible to replace the window yourself. It is not always an easy project, as it can get long and tetious. But, if you set aside a few hours, get a cheap panel remover kit (available at almost any parts store) and be patient, you can get it whipped.

You should be able to find one at a wrecking yard for fairly cheap (much cheaper than new from a glass shop). You can also keep an eye out on sites like craigslist for people parting out the same vehicle or offering auto glass at discounted rates.

Prior to taking on the job, it would be a good idea to watch a few "how to" videos available on a number of different sites. Here's one example: Good luck!

Have you tried replacing the master window switch? Just because the other windows work doesnt mean that switch for that window is good.

The main switch is controled by the drivers door main unit.....i had to use a forward force on my windows switch for it to work....so replaced the whole unit, you could find those on ebay cheap if local auto parts is expensive

1998 toyota sienna window on the driver side won't go up to close


Sadly, the power windows on this van are not very robust. Worse yet, the windows will go down but not go up--except perhaps a little at a time. But eventually the motor will no longer work.

I disassembled my power window and found there was no way to replace the motor except with a (very, very expensive) factory part.

My passenger window is currently broken like this, and I disconnected the wiring to prevent anyone from operating it. I keep my passenger window very very clean because friction (like sap from the Almond tree in our front yard) wears out the automatic windows quicker.

In your case, there's no real workaround because it's the driver's window--go to the dealer and see what type of price you can get for the replacement part.

My condolences.

Power quarter vent window


The motor that drives this window is very small and prone to failure, gain access to the motor connector and with a 12 volt test light probe the motor connector wires while someone operates the switch to open or close the window.
