I believe what komondor means is Read The Fine Manual: the bulbs are all typically listed in the owner's manual (although I don't have access to a 2011 manual to confirm that). In the 2004 manual, this is in a section called "Do-It-Yourself Maintenance" under "Electrical components". The 2004 manual shows how to remove and replace the bulb, as well as listing the number and type.

Also, any manufacturer or retailer of headlight bulbs should have a guide which lists all makes and models and shows which bulb fits; however, the 2011 Sienna might not be listed yet, especially in the printed guides in stores.

Re: Headlight bulb size??

While I believe he had a different word than "Fine" in mind for the F-word in that initialism, and I understand the sentiment, I also believe that there's nothing wrong with using this forum as a resource even when that question is answered in the F-ing owner's manual.

I find the manual actually brings up questions. For instance, the prohibition of aerosol cans from the luggage compartment on page 319 is amusing. Am I to search every purse like I'm the TSA? Does the Camary have the same prohibition? What are the boundaries of the "luggage compartment" of my van? Does it matter if I remove the 2nd row seats? How about if I make the front seat passenger put all aerosol cans in her purse? Why are they less likely to "cause a fire" there?

Re: Headlight bulb size??

There certainly are some oddities in the owners manual. For instance, it says we are not to use a hitch which is attached to the axle: while you could get an axle-mounted hitch for your Model T, I defy anyone to find such a strange device to attach to the suspension of the Sienna, or any modern vehicle without a solid axle. While using that not-attached-to-the-axle hitch, we are not to tow over 45 mph... hopefully while not getting rear-ended by all the other traffic on the highway!

The 2004 manual uses some uncommon designations for some of the minor bulbs, but clearly uses common terms for the headlight bulbs. I just don't know if they are the same for 2011, so I'll leave the specific information to a reading of the manual.

Help finding stuff in the manual, or interpreting the information found there, seem like good topics for discussion in this forum.

H11 = low and fog
9005 = high beam

this info is on pg 745 of your manual.
