Question about 2004 Toyota Sienna
speaking from one that has change SEVERAL of these. If you havent done it
before its a pain in the ****. I have done so many that I can do them in about
30 minutes. You can do it with or without the door on the vehicle.
Personally I do them with the door off. You can't fix the cable if its broke.
The cable has to slide down 2 sets of sliders and in and out of the motor
theres no tolerance for a splice anywheres. I had no idea those motor assy were
The way this is changed is
you remove the door. (disconnect negative on battery, or turn power slide door
button to off) Remove the panel, drop the glass down about a 1/3 the way, pull
the 2 rubber grommets off from inside the mod. Remove 2 10 mm bolts, remove the
back sash on the door and the inside rear window rail, pull the inside rubber
window run slightly out. Slide the old glass out, drop the mod down, remove the
cable assy bolts (4 10mm bolts) , unplug the wiring harness, remove the 2 10mm
bolts atop the rear slide roller, theres also one 10mm inside the door at the
very top near the rear slider. Remove that bolt too, its grey and about 1
1/4" long. You also have the remove the rear latch lock, 3 T30 torks
bolts. Unsnap the cable from the 2 retaining clips and slide the power door
assembly out the bottom of the door. Reverse assembly for the new one. Id
imagine they are charging you about $300-400 labor. Id do it for $100
lol No idea where to get a new one
reasonably tho. Its sad cause I see 1000's of them daily. Ask me how I know
this? I work in offline repair at Toyota Motor

Good luck Rob
if you don't know what your doing with the new motor your going to shell it out
quicker then you put it on. This is where the dealer comes in handy. I've
replaced a few and from I've seen they usually run around $1100-1200 without
