  1. Tailgate door won’t open!

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    With the rear panel off you should have a clear shot at the motor that actuates the latch hook action. I've never taken a motor off, but IIRC, the bolts holding the motor were pretty visible. How that motor hooks into the latch mechanism is unknown to me, but these things are meant to be...
  2. 2012 vs 2013

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Given a choice? I'd steer you to the 2013. The van was new in 2011 and there were a ton of TSB's related to a whole bunch of issue. They were still making running changes well into 2012. Things seemed to really settle into a rhythm by 2013. That doesn't mean you couldn't get a great van...
  3. Hid or led

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    "Good" plug & play? Doubtful. Most of these 'solutions' produce lousy patterns unless you also change the tungsten filament optics to match.
  4. 2019 Sienna - Wood Pecker type noise coming from the engine or fuel injector

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    There were TSB's issued for a 'knocking noise' from the engine vacuum pump (added because Atkinson cycle engines don't maintain the same level of intake vacuum that conventional engines have). The vacuum pump should be just under the throttle body.
  5. No roof rails and need an option.

    Mods and Projects (Gen 3)
    The understanding is that the L models (no roof rails) also lack the reinforcement plates at the roof rib corners that the ends of the rails bolt to, and that provide additional structural integrity. So adding any kind of roof rack could, in concept, put you at risk for a deformed or damaged...
  6. 2016 or 2017 Sienna?

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Yes. They occasionally buy back select fleet delivery vehicles and market them thru select dealerships as CPO.
  7. Accidently uploaded the wrong image to a thread How do I delete it?

    I find the NEW forum software to sometimes be a bit quirky and inconsistent in operation. It might just have been an off day....
  8. Window screens for second row windows

    Mods and Projects (Gen 2)
    We used to be big Drive-In movie goers, so made front window screens for our 2002 Odyssey van (and they worked acceptably well for the 2008 Sienna and the 2015 Sienna). They have pockets and magnet tape, so slip over the entire window frame and seal well when the door closes. I'll have to dig...
  9. 2016 or 2017 Sienna?

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    We just took that plunge while assisting our kid this summer to get a car. We ended up with a 2018 Toyota RAV4 XLE with the Extra Value Pkg. About 10 months old with 20,200 miles in superb condition for around 68% of it's original MSRP. It had been a rental fleet vehicle. Now I will admit...

    "crowned"?
  11. Building my Winter Tire Package

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    So I see that the Bridgestone rebate program expired on 9/9.... That's pretty early for a 'Fall' rebate! Wondering if they will announce anything new in the next week or two to remain competitive with everyone else out there. I'm not shopping for the Sienna this year, but am building a...

  17. 2016 or 2017 Sienna?

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    I was wondering how I managed to get that wrong, so I went back to the shopping experience we had this past year. Sure enough, TSS-P (PCS w/PD, LDW w/SA, AHB, DRCC, etc.) were all introduced as standard equipment on all models of the 2017 RAV4.
  18. Climate control blowing cool air in front, hot air in back

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    What year van, and what model? Are you seeing any unusual digits on the display? Some systems can display error codes on the panel, but you may have to force it into diagnostic mode to retrieve them. As stated above, a blend door (it's all CAN today) could do it. Or the AC Amplifier (the...
  19. 2016 or 2017 Sienna?

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    I keep Geezer1 around to keep me focused and on track. Without him correcting my mistakes, this board would be a real mess! Sorry about that. Safety Sense = 2018 and up.
  20. Building my Winter Tire Package

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    No doubt true. My understanding is that General's Arctic 12 addresses wear over the original Arctic that Bridgestone is attempting with the WS90 over the WS80. Fix something that was amiss without screwing up what works. The Arctic 12 wore well and delivered the traction in some bad storms...
