SOURCE: Replacing RH Side view mirror on a 2006 Toyota Sienna

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Why is my van stuck in neutral and how do I fix it?

Could have possibly broken the shifter cable, or one of the ends might have come off, either of the shifter or the transmission.

I have a 1988 Toyota Celica, after a snow storm and few really cold days(-53c with wind chill) I had tried to drive it but it suddenly would not shift our of reverse I believe it maybe be the cables

this a STICK shift. a manual transmission..... clear.

way up north and -53C is -13c more than car was designed to handle.
H3LL even gasoline fails to evaporate at that temp.
would not shift..???
does would not mean, the lever is stuck (iced) or it lever does move
but the transmission fails to leave, reverse.
2 different things.
and you can open the hood and see if the tranny shifter linkage does
move in direct relation ships to the shift lever.

the gear shift is cable linked to to the gear box.
on most M/T they must move, or is seized.
sure it can seize at -53C sure..... just look at it and see that.
if the lever moves, and the cable just bends. then the tranny
is just stuck , frozen.
just a little moisture and bam stuck. at shifter, cable or trans.

id keep a propane torch in car there.
sure would and use a heater garage at home. sure would.

my ASE friend in Alaska, does heavy equipment,
He flies to work in his private plane every day,,,,
and some times, they never turn it off. the engines.
and on some spray the whole lower engine and trans
with foam rubber so the engine can retain heat.
endless stories from him on topic.

my i recommend any ASE mech that can help there.
find one and ask him what he'd do, and do it.

I was driving my '93 Toyota Tercel, When I went to shift, the shifter got stuck in third gear. Now I am down to my last $100, and I fear my car is done for. The car has 240,000 miles on it.

So you were driving when it got stuck? Were you able to keep driving but only in third? And did you hear any noises?

There is a cable that runs from the shifter to a shift lever on the back of the transmission. It connects just below and to the left of of the air filter housing. Look and see if the anything is damaged, or broken off. If that linkage is jammed or broken you wouldnt be able to move the gearshift.

If you check out the linkage and dont see any problems, detach the cable from the shift lever. Then
try moving the shift lever by hand. I can tell you exactly how to detach it if you need. I will have to go look at the cable on my car to remember how to remove it. I have a 1992 Tercel, should be the same as yours.

Thats the best case scenario. Worst case, transmission is bad.

When you push the clutch pedal, does it feel normal?

Is there a manual lever for the 2000 toyota sienna when the power seat no longer works????

I think that power seats are different than the manual seats fundamentally. So, if the motor stops working, it is stuck in that position until electrical repairs are made.

I don't think there is a manual lever override for any power seats that I have seen.

My 2006 Chevy truck is stuck in D but the lever moves and cannot start the truck What could the problem be?

mcdevito75 here, A neutral Safety switch keeps your car from starting in D, L 1--2 Or R Most likely the cable or rod connecting the shift lever to the transmossin fell or broke off the transmission. Best Bet Have the car towed to your local repair shop, in case you need to replace the entire shikt cable or linkage, you can start the car if you can find the lever on the tranny and move that lever into N you'LL have to do this by feel the lever will be close to the broken cable or rod that shifts the tranny.
