First, fold the seat all the way until it lays flat on itself, use the side lever or pull the strap from the back. This will release the seat back, now tilt the seat forward raising the rear part of it, make sure that there is enough space with the front seats to allow it to go all the way until the top part of the seat touches the floor, in this position pull the black strap you will find underneath the seat cushion. This should release the seat, now you can tilt it back and should be able to get it out.

    Middle seat removal 2009 Sienna
    Move front seats all the way forward
    Lower head rests on middle seats
    Make sure middle seats are moved all the way back in their tracks
    Using side lever, tumble seats forward, if they do not tumble, put seat back upright
    After seat is fully tumbled forward, pull up on black lower seat tether, while rolling seat back
    Wiggle seat from side to side at same time, to get front latches released, watch fingers
    Pat yourself on the back for a good job done

I bought a TP 4000 chair at Staples today and when you sit in it you immediately sink like the hydraulic cylinder that allows you to adjust hieght is bad. Any ideas??

It could be faulty, but there is a arm under the seat that should allow you to adjust it, exercise that lever, perhaps the valve is stuck.

I don't think the 98 has the thing you're looking for. look in the owner's manual. it should tell you in there if it even has it. furthermore the child seats usually come with the ability to install in both the newer and the older cars.

rebuild carb yourself, unless housing is cracked. look online for rebuild kit. They usually come with instructions. If not, just take good notes while taking it apart so you get it back together right. Did they say what was wrong with it? What were symptoms?
