The crank handle is actually in the back on the left side (cargo area) and you can lower the spare tire by introducing the handle in the hole that is located by the latch in the same area.you just have to twisted counter clockwise to lower it down..

Lift up carpet in the back cargo area, there's usually an access hole to put a tool on to crank it down. Look where your jack is located the tool should be with it & possibly instructions as well! Good Luck!
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.
You have posed a great question, one I am sure future viewers here will want to see answered.
The spare tire, under the vehicle, is lowered via a cable. There is a silver bolt in the rear compartment, under the carpeting. Pull the carpeting back, and you will see the bolt. Using the lug wrench from the tool kit, rotate the bolt counter-clockwise. This will rotate the cable mechanism above the spare tire, and lower it. Once the tire is low enough, the center clamp can be loosened from the center of the rim, and the tire removed from the cable device.
To raise the wheel back up, place the clamp device back into the center of the rim, and rotate the bolt clockwise, until the tire is fully raised.
THERE SHOULD BE A HOLE IN THE REAR BUMPER THAT THE TIRE TOOL FITS IN. TURN THE CRANK-TOOL COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO LOWER THE SPARE TIRE. WHEN THE TIRE IS DOWN, LIFT THE TIRE ENOUGH TO SEND THE CABLE LONGWAYS THROUGH THE RIM. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK
