Back Door Leak

The back door leaks and we have taken vehicle to 2 Toyota dealers who have told us it is a "cosmetic" problem and they don't take care of those problems. We have an extended warranty on this vehicle that should cover such problems.

    When you say "back door", do you mean the read side door or the tailgate?

Leak in rear of Van

It may well be the rubber door seal is torn or perished, which allows water to find its way inside.

Go to another workshop and ask their opinion .. explain that you've been to the original fitter twice. If they say the seal needs changing .. go back to the guy who fitted it.

If he can't do the job properly, take the van to somebody who can.

2004 toyota Sienna drivers door pops loudly when opening&shutting

Tell your husband to call the Toyota dealership back, and ask them if you vehicle is involved in a "Special Policy Campaign". Toyota IS replacing the doors for FREE with the issue you speak of, We have replaced 15 or 20 so far here, at no cost to the owners. If the dealer gives you the run-around, call the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331 and explain your situation. The CEC will guide you the rest of the way to get your car fixed.

Water running down back of door jam leaking onto floor.All seals are good and treated with silcone grease. It's both sides and appears to come from under the plastic and down the jam. GB

have someone spray the top and area around the suspected leak area with a misting sprayer type of hose nozzle, u suit in the car and try to locate the leak, that is how we do it at the dealer, 30 years of doing this and know of no easier way unless there is a factory bulletin to explain this leak (TSB), have u consulted the dealer to ask this question about a possible TSB for the leak?

Pool of water behind driver seat

more than likely to be either front or rear windscreen, water seeps under carpets to lowest part of floor, if vehicle is a hatch back check the channel at top of door opening is not blocked with leaves or debris as this can cause water to overflow and into vehicle
