Door check strap in Repair Manual

I found this picture in the door part of the repair manual in another thread. How many people actually have those bolts holding the cup in place? They're all spot welded, I thought. Maybe they should have been bolts in the first place. This is in the 2004 repair manual. Very strange...

I just checked and mine are both just like the drawing, complete with studs and nuts and bolt. I would be surprised if a component like this were welded in.

Re: Door check strap in Repair Manual

Did you have the TSB done on them? I had the driver's side done when it started creaking, but the passenger side is still original, with two spot welds holding the cup inside.

Isn't this the same part discussed here:

Re: Door check strap in Repair Manual

I have not had anything done to this part, as far as I know. There was a plate somewhere replaced due to rattling, but it was not described as the door check strap, I understood it to be a cracked striker plate, and I didn't see it.

Looking at the TSB, the "Door Check" itself is mounted by two studs and nuts. The spot-welded part is the "Door Check Mounting Panel", which is a part of the sheet metal of the door structure - that I would expect to be welded. The "cup" which is welded is the larger sheet metal panel component; the part which is bolted into it is a box-shaped component inside the door, from which the "strap" itself protrudes.

I went back out to our Sienna to look with this extra understanding, and confirmed that the panel (which could be called a cup) is still firmly spot-welded in each door - there is no evidence of any repair or replacement.
