Sometimes coins or other items get stuck in the track. Might have to remove the seat and try to free the track. If all looks ok, unbolt both motors and move to a more desirable position.

SOURCE: 2001 Toyota Sienna r.h. sliding door ''rear latch switch'' location

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).

Need to remove seat and check the drive cable from the motor to the affected side. May need to be reconnected or replaced. Make sure you disconnect battery as seats have side air bags in them.

Looking how to lower spare tire on toyota sienna van


Hello. Welcome to FixYa! Please allow us to assist you.

The procedure is as follows, to remove the spare tire from a 2WD Sienna:

Move the passenger seat as far forward as possible.
Move the passenger side middle seat back as far as possible.
Obtain your tire tool (the one you would use to remove the lugnuts)
Observe the carpeting behind the front passenger seat; you will see a small piece of carpet, like a small 'flap', that can be raised.
Under this flap is a small silver 'bolt'. Fit the lug wrench onto this bolt, and rotate it. This will lower the cable that raises the spare tire up under the area between the passenger front and rear seats.

Note: 4WD Siennas do not have any spare tires, as they came with 'run-flat' tires. Toyota did not fit a spare on the 4WD units.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

Everything works on the power seats except unable to move seats forward and backward


There are usually 3 motors for power seats, 1 to tilt the seat, 1 to raise and lower the seat, and 1 to move the seat back and forth. I would think that motor is bad. Check for any obstuctions to the seat track.

The back of the seat of my 2003 G35 moves forward but not backwards. All the other buttons work...I'm able to raise/lower, tilt and move the entire seat back and forth. Any suggestions?


this is not uncommon and the test is very simple. The seat motor often fails in this vehicle and the simplest test is this: (1)raise the front of the seat as much as possible, (2)tap on the motor housing while holding the seat slide button (seat motor you need is the one easiest to reach in the front/bottom of the seat). If this resolves your problem what you need is a seat motor. Unfortunately these are often only available with a complete seat base system, so if this is the resolution you may want to search salvage yards, this piece can be easily replaced by itself.

Remove seat from second row in Honda Mini Van 2007


on the passenger side feel under the seat and there is a lever that pulls toward you as you stand at the sliding door.

First, raise the armrest, then lower the back all the way forward. Then remove the headrest sit it out of the way and while pulling the lever under the seat towards you, lift up the seat from the back so it tilts forward. When it is standing on its "nose" lift first one side shifting it either forward or backwards to clear the rod on which it is hooked. Do the same with the other side of the seat and then lift it out. Installation is the reverse of removal.

The other seat is much the same, though sometimes the lever is a little different but in the same place.

Good luck,
bob
