    I printed the instructions and went to to remove the broken cable. I removed part of the door, remove the rail containing the cable heads and stop at that point.
    After putting the door back, I noticed the door is very sluggish, and very hard to open.

It should apply to yours too.

Re Toyota 8 year/80,000 warranty about Toyota Sienna broken weld, is there a letter for this warranty?


Contact the dealer that I used. They were helpful. The dealer is in San Rafael, CA 94901
If they say they can fix it under warranty, you may want to drive there or call other dealers in the area.

Our back door on our 2007 Toyota Sienna will not stay closed. It will open automatically when we hit the remote. It will go all the up, then it comes right back down.


There was a safety bulletin by Toyota regarding the lift gate of the 2007 Sienna. I had to jump into the cargo area once to avoid being crushed by the lift gate coming down unwantedly.
Contact your dealership..they replaced the lift gate hydralics (under warranty at the time) and the problem was solved.

The latch handle does not work on the rear cargo door. I can't open the door. It appears that the handle mechanism is broken.


I would pop off the rear hatch trim to look inside to see what is broken. Usually there are a bunch of push pins that hold the trim in place.

The sliding door on our 1996 Toyota Sienna is broken shut (it cannot be opened). The door button on the inside nor the handle on the outside can mechanically effect the door. We do not have automatic door...


It sounds like the cable/bar in the door is broken or stuck

1. you will need to remove the door lining to get at the problem

2. could also be the door lock stuck in the lock position (does the door feel like it locks or unlocks when you use the lock)

3. could be the handle cable/ bar

NOTE some vehicles have cables while others have bars play with everything while you have the guts exposed this should help to locate the problem if nothing is moving while you play with the lock or handle this could be the problem
NOTE If nothing seems to be missing or out of place it could simply need to be lubed at the point where the door locks to the frame

Automatic sliding door on 2004 sienna is broken (cable snapped)


I'm dealing with a similar problem.... I don't have good news for you - Toyota only sells that cable as part of an assembly (just got my estimate today to replace it $2000) thats not a typo. I removed the cable and disabled the power door function - Now it works as a manual door just fine.

These are photos of what I found in my door - I'll have more pics posted soon as to what I did to make the door work soon.

Cable on power sliding door broken...will not operate with power...expensive fix?


We'll
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
that expensive.




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
manufacturing Indiana.

Good luck Rob







I agree,
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
labor

Both manual sliding doors on my Toyota Sienna will not open


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.

Driver side door lock


Pull the door panel & replace the electronic lock solenoid.
Not easy, but this is what you need to do.
